We suspect you’re all aware that we are quite keen on the notion of hand craftsmanship. From our singularly sumptuous Scottish cashmere sweaters to the well-buffed appeal of our English brogues; from the dependably droll detail of our hand-rolled pocket squares to the reliably raffish swagger of our English linen suitings…it’s about the hand of the master craftsman.
So, we’re rather pleased to posit that you’ll find a bit of the old handcraftsmanship apparent as you scroll merrily along our new blog. Enjoy our considered pith on matters dapper and dashing in our venture into the blogosphere—bespoke blogging, if you will…
Herein, consider the bird’s-eye look we offer at one fortunate beginner’s first go-round with perhaps the highest representation of craftsmanship we proffer: the Paul Stuart Custom suit.
Paul Stuart Custom Autumn/Winter 2013
"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky…"
—Percy Bysshe Shelley
The sleeve of a drape suit plays an important role in the overall line of the garment. Because of the fullness created in the chest due to wide sloped and unpadded shoulders - and to the high armhole - the sleeve’s bicep must be cut wider than average. This allows the height of the armhole to be effective for ease, comfort, and mobility. (via Paul Stuart)
