Black Linen Suit

shipping calculated at checkout.
A quintessentially strong, statement Sexton silouhette - with a hint at summer evoked by the chic black 100% linen fabric.

Pairing the hallmark architectural lines of our heritage jacket with our newly developed flared trouser, this rich black linen suit nods to our rock 'n' roll roots. Although all-black, the cloth is full of all the character and texture that linen brings.

The firmness of the linen gives razor sharp finish on the jacket and trouser alike, linen will crease in areas creating a firm and relaxed look, all the while keeping you feeling as cool as you look.
Jacket Description

Cut from a firm black linen; this cloth provides our heritage jacket a razor sharp structure that holds it's shape impeccably, untill it starts to crease at the elbows and knees, as linen does.

Minimalistic and chic, this jacket lends itself effortlessly to a plethora of looks. Dressed all the way up with the matching flared trousers; you'll cut a retro rock 'n' roll sillohette, or soften the look with a contrasting trousers and an open collar shirt for off-duty cool.

Jacket Block

Our Heritage Jacket is the epitome of the Sexton look, cut with confident peak lapels, a straight shoulder line and one button to fasten. Single-breasted one-button jackets like this contribute to a lean, athletic look. The single button focuses the eye on the wearer’s natural waistline, while a broad lapel draws the eye towards the shoulders, which contrasts with the jacket’s slim waist. The overall impression is supremely elegant, and true to our art deco reference points.

Trouser Description

An adaptation of our parallel trouser, this new cut has been developed with a wider hem to add a retro flare.

A black trouser on its own is a powerfully versatile piece to have in your tailoring arsenal, as it lends itself to all colours and can be dressed up or down to achieve the level of formality required. This combined with the character of the firm and rugged linen and the result is a sexy seasonal trouser, brimming with charm and Sexton appeal.

Trouser Details

• Flat front
• Straight Side pockets (sewn shut to keep the line unless you need them) • Two large fob pockets with flap • Single jett hip pocket on the right with hole and button. • Sexton Pistol side adjuster • 2" waistband • Sexton pistol-shaped side adjusters • 2" turn up • Inlay to let out waist up to 2" • Inlay to let out the fork 1" • Inlay to lengthen up to 2”

Trouser Block

Most of our trousers are cut with timeless, gently tapered legs, but we also recently reintroduced Parallel Trousers, which taper through the thigh and then fall straight from the knee, giving the impression of a subtle flare. These come with no small amount of sex appeal, and are the style of trouser that Edward introduced at Nutter’s of Savile Row, as worn by the rock aristocracy of the 1970s – Mick Jagger in particular. Turn-ups add a touch of panache, and help wider leg trousers to drape and fall correctly – and so are always to be encouraged. We like healthy two-inch turn-ups on all of our trousers.
