That Bespoke Green Jacket

That Bespoke Green Jacket

We were recently commissioned by a client to make a bespoke jacket for his upcoming wedding. Weddings these days com in all shapes and forms…..from the super traditional church weddings, to the more easy-going barn style. Each reflecting the style and characters of the lucky couple. This wedding erred towards the later and came with a brief.

In light of our recent move to Cheltenham House we thought it was high time we looked at the opening hours too. One of the reasons for the move was to get more flexibility over our hours and to better serve our clients.

From the feedback over the last few weeks and reviewing the bookings we have taken we have updated our opening hours as below

New Patch Pocket Shape

New Patch Pocket Shape

Although we always favour a timeless style its important to not stand still. Whilst we aim for a look and a style that transcends time we also consistently look for improvements. Its in our nature.

With this in mind we felt it was time to give our patch pockets a bit of a reworking. The previous shape was very much an older English style with a pretty square pocket with rounded edges.

This has been updated to a more rounded shape, curving in towards the mouth of the pocket. The rear of the pocket is also raised giving a slight tilt towards the front. Overall is a more modern shape and with its roots in the Neapolitan style.

One of the questions we are often asked by clients when they are selecting cloth is “have you got anything made up that i can look at?” We keep around 20 suits and jackets in stock in different sizes, mainly to assess fit and posture. But we ensure they are also styled slightly different to show all the possibilities available. We also have all our current works going through and items for fittings at various stages. So at any one time we can have upwards of 30 different garments to show people. But its still not enough.
