Sartorial Details

Full Canvas Construction

A sartorial jacket - or coat - needs an interlining that will help give it shape and mold it. Canvas gives the item a tailored and crafted look. In short, it breathes life into it. Purely technical, canvas is made from either horsehair, wool, mohair or camel hair. It could also be a mix of them all, with varying thickness and weight. The canvas is stitched to the jacket, often by hand, thus making the canvas pieces 'floating' in the middle of the inner and outer cloth. This gives the jacket added flexibility. The canvas runs from the upper parts, all the way down to the end of the jacket. After you wear your canvassed suit for a while, it will begin to take your shape and look incredibly natural.

unlined

Unlined suits are lighter and more breathable, making them ideal for warmer climates or during the summer months. Secondly, the absence of lining often allows for a more natural and relaxed fit, enhancing the overall comfort and mobility. Also, unlined suits tend to have a more casual and modern appearance, making them suitable for both formal and semi-formal occasions, providing versatility and value for your wardrobe.

Raglan Shoulders

The raglan shoulder, a timeless innovation in fashion, was introduced in the early 19th century by Lord Raglan himself. This revolutionary design features sleeves that extend seamlessly from the collar, eliminating the need for a shoulder seam. The seamless line created by the raglan shoulder offers a sleek and elegant appearance. It lends a subtle, sporty charm to any garment, making it a popular choice for both formal and casual wear.

Long Milanese Buttonhole

The elegant, longer brother of the Milanese. With its thin and extra long gimp cord inside, this is one of the most challenging buttonholes to make by hand. Even a highly skilled tailor will take about 20 minutes to finish it.

Double Breasted Closure

Contrary to popular belief, the double-breasted jacket originated as casual wear in the early 19th century, also known as the reefer jacket. It was considered very casual and was worn by people at sporting and national events.

Gun Flap

The gun flap, also known as a storm flap, has a fascinating history originating from military attire. First introduced during World War I, this practical feature was designed to shield soldiers from the harsh elements and keep their firearms dry in inclement weather. Beyond its functional purpose, the gun flap adds a touch of sophistication to the overcoat's design. Today, it is considered a distinctive style detail, lending a sense of refinement and heritage to the overall look.

Belt

The belt on an overcoat has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. Originally used as a functional element to cinch the coat at the waist, it gained popularity for its practicality and style.

Side Pockets

Also known as 'slant' pockets, slash pockets commonly appear on pants, slacks, and jackets. These pockets are set into the garment on an angle, allowing the wearer to slide their hands in and out easily.
