Hand stitched lapels and pockets are features that go back to the days when all suits were only hand made. Back then, the outer and inner shells were constructed separately and sewn in, one into the other from the wrong side and then pulled inside out so that the right sides were out. In this sort of construction, the edges of the jacket were sewn in by hand to retain the integrity of the jacket and smooth out the edges.
This hand sewing created small ripple effects on the jacket lapels and pockets. In high-end suits, you will find this feature replicated by machine stitched tiny Â´dog tooth stitchesÂ´ on the lapels. We offer this as an optional feature in our suits and utilize the older traditional suit construction method by hand.
