Jacket Block

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

A modern take on a classic style, cut in a sharp Italian black wool and featuring a grosgrain braid down the side of the leg. High waisted, with two full pleats, 2" turn-up and a strong 2" waistband, our House trousers embody the classic tailored trouser, while tapering to provide a contemporary edge.

• Jetted slant side pockets
• Double jet hip pocket on the right with hole and button
• 2" waistband with elongated extension and keeper loop
• Sexton pistol-shaped side adjusters

Inlay to let out the fork 1”
• 2" of inlay in the hem to lengthen the trousers.

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.
