Work in progress at Meyer & Mortimer

Last week it was time for the first fitting of a new suit being made for me by Savile Row tailors Meyer & Mortimer. It’s coming along very nicely.

In a 14oz flannel from Hunt & Winterbotham, the suit was inspired by the 6-button SB by Ted Lapidus that was on the cover on the first edition of my book, Sharp SuitsBook CoverM&M 11

Working with cutter Fred Neiddu, I have decided to go for quite wide trousers, after the style of the Duke of Windsor.

I am using a bold Liberty print Tana Lawn cotton fabric for my lining rather than the usual silk or satin.

At this stage, you can see the amount of handwork work that goes on inside a bespoke suit.

The trousers will have a button fly…

and stitching detail – in grey, not in white – down the leg. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished suit in a few weeks.
