Good Tailoring Is Not Yet Dead, You Just Have To Ask For It

Corozo buttons which were designed with our logo which features our stamp butterfly. These buttons are made in Panama to order. 

The lining for this jacket came from Indonesia. You may recall my trip to Alta Moda in Bali in which I wrote about their three floors of thousands of fabrics.

Top stitching using silk thread. This work was done by hand using our team of Italian tailors who are still working into their seventies. God only knows who will replace them once they decide to retire.

This is a jacket that we did for the Euopean summer. The fabric is from Hunt & Winterbotham, the lining is a polyester we found in Indonesia, the buttons are from Corozo buttons in Panama via our contact Raul Caulderon who went to a great effort to make sure these buttons came out perfect. The top stitching is by hand and was done using a silk thread which our Italian friends had lying around and wished to use on the garment to get it spot on. I am thrilled with the outcome, it far surpassed my expectations of this jacket. The peaked collar and the patch pockets pay homage to James Andrew of 'What Is James Wearing' who wears a lot of Tom Ford and loves a good peaked collar.
