Jacket Description

Our most popular bespoke commission, the double-breasted grey flannel, is available here ready-to-wear, cut in an 11oz Italian flannel. The grey flannel suit is a wardrobe essential for any gentleman and our double-breasted take is a timeless classic, yet one which we have refined over many years. Chic, elegant and soft, flannel has a gentle drape to it that fine worsteds do not have.

This shapely approach to tailoring also filters through to our double-breasted models, which come in two complementary styles. Perhaps our best-known cut is the timeless Signature Double-Breasted jacket, which has four buttons to fasten and two ‘show buttons’ on the chest. A personal favourite of Edward’s, double-breasted jackets like this lend stature and a touch of authority to the wearer, but can nonetheless still create a playful impression in bold colours, soft textures.

Trouser Description

Trouser Block

Those who, like us, enjoy a touch of romance in their dress may prefer trousers cut with pleats. Our Heritage Trousers are cut in the classic mid-century style with a high rise, generous legs and two deep, forward-facing pleats on each side of the waist. Trousers like these create the illusion of a slim waist and hips, and form the bottom half of the hourglass shape that starts with our jackets. We finish these with our signature pistol shaped side straps and slant-jet pockets; details which help our Heritage Trousers to retain a clean, fluid line through the leg.
