This jacket was made in June 2009. It features Thomas Fisher Super 140 wool in midnight blue, white silk satin piping on a peaked lapel which was finished with both midnight blue satin silk and a collar of midnight blue Holland and Sherry velvet.
The suit features white silk lining, midnight blue jets and alternate white jets on the pants. The cut is very slim or 'super British'. The pants are stove piped with a slim fit finish and no pleat.
The aim of the suit was to follow both traditional dinner jacket rules (no vent in rear for example) but to redefine the use of collars and lapels to accentuate the midnight blue tones. Midnight blue was considered by the Duke of Windsor to be the ultimate black in the evening as in subdued lighting the blue becomes richer than black.
