What you need to know

I have created a modern version of the classic Asian style with a mandarin collar. This suit is made using UK Wool from Yorkshire. British fabrics are perfect for all weathers, and because of its unique structure it will keep you warm in Winter and cool in Summer. It is a light fabric that is soft, durable and smart.

Style Features

I have chosen detailing for this suit that modernises the traditional style of the Nehru Suit.

The jacket is based on a Western version. I have made it slightly shorter that the classic and I have also added pockets. I have also put 5 buttons down the front of the jacket and I have made the trousers plain fronted with straight legs.
You can alter many of the details of this suit to make it perfect for you. This is available to do in the personalisation stage.

I have a variety of different lining and piping colours to choose from. I have chosen a lining and piping colour that I feel compliments the colour of the suit you have chosen, but please feel free to choose your own.

There is certain detailing that I believe defines the suit and therefore there is no option to alter these. Please see below.

  • I have added a floating canvas which creates a better look and feel to the suit. It is normally only found in Bespoke Suits at top market price.
  • I have put no vents in the jacket. To put a vent in a jacket of this length would dramatically change the way the jacket wears and feels.
  • The pockets have been added to improve the design of the traditional suit jacket. They compliment the shorter style and modernise the whole suit.

Suit Build Quality

I have added extra detailing to the suits to make sure that my suits are top quality. I have put extra D stitches at the corner of the pockets for strength. I believe all suit jackets should have this reinforcement. I have also added an extra bar tack to the crotch of the trousers to ensure my trousers never split there.

A bit about the fabric

For the Nehru suit I have used a barathea fabric, also known as hopsack twill. It gives the surface of the material a traditional slightly pebbled effect.

I have chosen this fabric due to its quality. British weaving involves a 2 core yarn, this means the material will 'bounce back' to its original shape, as the 2 fold gives the material more balance and stops its twisting when hanging.

I am using wool as it naturally wicks away water from the body which makes it an ideal fabric for Summer. It is also perfect for Winter as the tight weave stops the wind.
