Summer Safari Suiting

I am always looking for new and exciting garments to add to my repertoire of bespoke and made to measure clothing, and I couldn’t be more excited to be presenting to you a more casual style of custom tailoring.

 

Introducing you to my Safari Suiting Collection,  inspired by the suit made famous in the 1970’s my Safari Collection is soft and unstructured and is perfect for the summer season.  Available in the classic short sleeve Safari Jacket and the long sleeved Field Jacket.

 

The Short Sleeve Safari Jacket pictured in rose quartz, is available in cotton, wool/linen and 100% linen options starting from $650 made to measure.  The jacket has all the features of a classic safari jacket, four button fastening with pointed collar and pleated patch pockets. The rear of the jacket has a centre vent with an expressed waistband and inverted box pleat.  The jacket is slightly cropped and  completely unlined, designed for comfort and is the perfect layering piece over summer.   I have paired the Sarai Jacket with a double pleated pant in the same wool/linen fabric however contrasting fabrics are available also.

 

The Safari Field Jacket pictured in teal green, is also a four button single breasted fastening jacket finished with long sleeves and detailed with single button epaulets at the cuff.  The collar on the Field Jacket is broader with a wider spread and an expressed tab in the first button position.  Two  pleated patch pockets appear on the chest, with a further two hip pockets, all finished with brown horn buttons.  The rear of the jacket has a centre vent with an expressed waistband and the shoulders are with out padding.  In fact the entire jacket is unstructured and unlined, a part from a Cupro sleeve lining for added strength.  This is an ideal light weight jacket, paired perfectly with a t-shirt and a pair of made to cotton measure chinos. The Field Jacket is also available in cotton, wool/linen and 100% linen options starting from $690 made to measure.

 

If you would like to discuss the creation of your individually tailored Safari Jacket or Field Jacket, please arrange an appointment.
