Please find our work standards described at this link where you will find our detailed construction criteria.
For jackets and suits, we use a mix of traditional old-world construction and more modern construction techniques. Normally, the panel interlinings in our jackets and coats are a combination of fusion and canvas. The top breast panels are fused with hand-basted canvas interlinings for added support and the lower half of the jacket front is fused for increased flow and drape. We offer full-canvas or full-fusion interlinings on jackets and coats, for a small premium. Only the finest threads are used for hand basting so that the outer shell of jackets and coats seem to float on the body when worn.
Standard construction - Fusing and canvas. The panel interlinings in our suits are a combination of fusing and canvas.The jackets are fused and canvas facings are used for added support. We can prepare either full canvas or fully fused interlinings.
Soft Italian Felt construction - is a substitute for heavier British canvas construction. This is a special construction, designed for a modern, softer look with a single layer of fusing combined with soft felt to give the jacket flow and softness. Ideal for semi-bespoke tailoring.
British Full Canvas construction - This is the traditional method of jacket construction. All inner linings are hand-cut and hand-sewn to the cloth and the canvas is attached to the coat cloth using fine silk thread , giving the jacket the appearance that it floats on the canvas. This construction gives a well built shape to the jacket while providing the drape required for near perfection and is recommended for Classical Bespoke Tailoring. All our shirt collars are top-fused for added durability and stiffness for the highest quality look.
