Scottish tweeds are the original performance cloths—they keep you warm when they are wet, they get better with age and, unlike synthetic materials, they are truly beautiful to behold. A bespoke suit made in a new slim silhouette, even in an ultra-traditional handwoven Harris Tweed, looks fresh again.
Combing wool so that only the longer fibers are spun into yarn is an ancient technique resulting in cloth with a lighter, smoother hand. While not as romantic as the woolens—which have shorter fibers mixed in—worsteds are the workhorse of a fine business wardrobe. Shown here is an Italian worsted blended with cashmere in a burgundy plaid woven specially for our anniversary.
A flannel is created by milling a cloth (originally by pounding it with a stone wheel) which raises the nap of the cloth. A flannel is softer and feels cozier during the winter. For our centennial, we are featuring a variety of woolen flannels that are wondrously marbleized.
A custom-tailored wool overcoat is more than just protection from the cold. It is your face to the world during the winter months. For our centennial, we are offering a new range of rugged English and Scottish cloths. They can be worn over a suit, or casually with jeans. Either way, these coats belong on the streets of New York.
In 1913, a man’s shirt collar was perhaps his most important fashion accessory. Its shape and proportions balanced the shape of his face and the lapels of his jacket. Our custom-made shirts harken back to those days of exquisite style and attention to detail. To complete your Centennial look, allow us to help you pick out distinctive cufflinks and a tie pin, and teach you how to make a perfectly dimpled tie knot and fold a fine linen pocket square.
