So you’ve selected your cloth; now it’s time to attend to those all important finishing touches. Of course, a great deal of the detail we decide upon will come down to the purpose of the suit.
On the evening of 2nd December, fashion royalty came out in all their glory for the 2019 Fashion Awards, held at the Royal Albert Hall. Their mission – to celebrate all that is best in fashion excellence and innovation.
This month, we present our luxurious shawl tux, just in time for party season. The nights may be drawing in, but that won’t stop us from celebrating into the early hours wearing this timeless three-piece dinner suit.
The seasons change and time moves on, and so do fashions. But there are some items that never go out of style, and the tuxedo tops the list. Whether on the red carpet or on screen, the tuxedo is the epitome of eternal chic, worn by many a big name.
In the 1860s, Savile Row tailor Henry Poole was commissioned by the then Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) to make him a more relaxed, but still sharp and stylish, version of the tailcoat.
We love cloth with every fibre of our being; it is the very essence of a suit. The first, and incredibly exciting, step in creating your bespoke suit is picking the cloth from which you want it to be cut.
We are Jack and Will, founders of Jack Davison Bespoke. Today, we’re working on plans for our latest bespoke commission; a tux for the London Fashion Awards, here in our atelier-come-showroom on Ludgate Hill, a stone’s throw from St Paul’s Cathedral.
In this series, we will showcase a particular piece that we have created over the past month that we really want to share with you. As well as describing the piece, we’ll provide tips on how it might best be worn and accessorised.
Meet Jack Stammers and Will Davison, bespoke tailors and founders of luxury men’s atelier Jack Davison Bespoke.
