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.
