DAVID’S LAST SUMMER (2015)

It was Labor day yesterday so Summer has drawn to a close here in the U.S.

Early birds are already ordering flannels and tweeds and I am looking forward myself to dressing up in some new fall clothes myself.

Before we move into fall/winter I thought we would take a little retrospective at some of the clothes I made up this past Spring/Summer.




First up we have more of a spring early summer suit. Made from Scabal capri cloth this lightweight wool has a natural stretch. This book is really I think intended for making up colorful trousers to go with summer jackets but it works well for suits. The jacket is half lined and the buttons are a dark blue pearl. I was going for a rather 70s Bryan Ferry vibe with this piece which is reflected in the color and styling but as a two piece suit without the vest, this suit looks very modern.




Next is something I have wanted to do for a long time. Its a three piece silk and linen suit made from Dormeuil cloth and is based on the suit worn by “camp Freddy” in the 1969 film “The Italian Job”. The 1960s were drawing to a close when this film came out and we start to see more flamboyant 60s styles evolving into the 70s. Of course this is a rather crazy suit that is NSFW unless you are someone like David Bowie, but given the right context or maybe worn as a separate jacket for a garden party this is a stunning piece.




Here is a silk and wool jacket made from Scabal “Acapulco” cloth. The buttons are smoked mother of pearl. This is a funny one because I was talking to a regular client of mine and wanted to make this up for him, I joked with him if he didn’t go for it I would, when he didn’t I did! My client for his part decided on a very nice silk and linen summer jacket in a solid sky blue color.




A rather Mod looking 3 button seersucker sport coat. This seersucker is rather special being 100% Zegna silk. It is unlined and has a rather soft “shirt sleeve” shoulder.




BADA BING! 100% Zegna silk. This suit look like chrome and feels unbelievable, buttons are naturally mother of pearl. The cloth has a faint herringbone weave and although very delicate is very beautiful.




Finally another suit I have wanted to do for a long time, an iconic looking white linen double breasted suit. The linen is from Dormeuil, I made up two pairs of trousers to go with this jacket so as to extend the life of the suit. Its not a practical suit but then that is sort of the point. The feeling of wearing a white linen suit in New York is quite extraordinary as you feel a heightened awareness of your surroundings, you move more deliberately, more carefully and I would say with more gracefully. Very old Hollywood.

Interesting, David.  I like the sketch, look forward to seeing the finished product.  Im not a huge fan of moleskin but I bet that would look good in a tweed.

Neat. Will that be made like a regular coat (on the inside) or more like a shirt? Or something in between?

Thank you, yes, he's got a bit of tweed already, so for this we were thinking of something like those French artists jackets (anyone know what Im taking about) but a bit smarter.

I liked the idea of moleskin because of the durability, made this one up last fall in a full suit.
