The internal structure of a bespoke garment is its foundation.
The internal structure is not limited to the canvassing of a jacket front, but includes
other components that must be worked with great skill to build the line and contours
that give a garment its shape. Decades of experience cutting, padding and shaping
the materials we have selected for our interlinings allows us to utilise their best
characteristics to achieve a result that will endure for the long life of a garment.

Whilst selection of cloth, and working of the interlinings form two thirds of the narrative, the conclusion cannot be overlooked. Trimmings are the final addition, the subtleties that bring life and individuality to a bespoke creation.

Silk threads for button holes and top stitching of edges, silk and bemberg linings and buttons of buffalo horn and mother of pearl are carefully selected to enhance or contrast perfectly with the other features of a garment. Unique trimmings such as hand engraved gold name plates can be sourced or commissioned for garments of exceptional individuality.
