A retro, All Saints style suit

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I've got some All Saints blazers that I really love.  They're very casual, retro, well used looking, creased, and comfortable to wear.  There's nothing formal about them at all.  

 

Here's some photos:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

I'd love to have a few suits in this style.  I tried to create this by getting some bespoke suits made, but they're far too formal.  It seems that good suit makers just can't understand the retro, used, casual style that I'm looking for.

 

Any ideas on how to achieve this? 

 

Where should I be looking?  Is there a designer who makes off the peg suits like this?  Or is there someone who can make them for me in the UK?

 

Thanks!

Someone suggested Engineered Garments to me today.  This is definitely the sort of thing.  Still looking for more suggestions though...

Such garments would look hideous, what is acceptable with a pair of jeans will not turn into even an informal suit.

No one has offered you "rules" that I can see.

You'd have much better luck asking over at the Streetwear & Denim board.
