Tweed trousers: a love affair with the outdoors.

Jean-Paul Samson

Yet another pair of trousers we tailored for a client who loves his tweeds for the outdoors. It is actually very practical since he was just looking for somebody who could tailor him a copy of the trousers his grand father used for hunting during his days.So he brought the old pair and we re-engineered it by taking it a part to see how it was constructed. Well that was a proper tailor and we actually discovered a new technique from time gone by to benefit ourselves.

So we selected a cloth from our friends at Holland & Sherry. This to be exact: Fern Twill with Red Overcheck 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inch Grouse Moor collection Holland & Sherry HS1483CP cloth: 832010CP . You can see the full collection here. 

We then stroke the cloth and made a new pattern based on the grandsons preferences and measures. This is always the foundation for a well fitted garment that helps you to look and feel good. And that is personal.

Features you will find regarding the model and details are that the trousers have a turn up, exactly 4cm as ordered, pleats for comfort and a cotton lining to prevent against cold weather. So a practical product made on fair trade basis with a story behind it. That is what we do for our clients.

What is your story and how can we help and inspire you?
