Jackets provide a space for me to indulge my love and appreciation of pure quality. I rearely stray from the tried and tested - herringbones, POW checks, sumptous velvets, unless it is to segue occasionally into intriguing jacquards featuring themes from the natural world, or advanced printing techniques on difficult surfaces. The attention to detail is the thing; linings from Liberty, trims, a last button with contrast coloured thread. All these kinds of playful things, like laborious AMF stitching on lapels. But it is the fabric that holds all the creativity and fun in place. I only use materials from the best mills in the world, primarily Italian, but also from our own superb British tradition in wool. Perfect, easy, fine companionship for good.
