This ensemble of jacket and trousers was designed by myself and made by Matthew Lawrence Bespoke in Paddington, Sydney. It was fashioned off another hybrid 'Smoking/Dinner' jacket which I had designed in January 2009 using Rochefort in the St James Trust building. Unfortunately, Rochefort were very unreliable, though the jacket was made very well by their 'old Italians' (who really are not that old I found out).
The jacket uses Holland and Sherry black velvet from their Black Tie bunch. We used a black satin duchess silk for the lapel which is a medium width shawl. The wool for the pants is Holland and Sherry worsted 110 wool if my memory serves me correctly. In my humble opinion, the black Holland and Sherry velvet, which I use for my bow ties www.lenoeudpapillon.com, is the best velvet I have been able to find in my travels.
