Last week, on the UES, I came across a couple of jackets. Â One was SB with peaked lapels in blue wool, the other a DB in a gray pin (chalk?) stripe on a blue ground. Â Each came with a vest, the former having white piping on the front V. Â The blue jacket also has working button holes. Judging by the shape and style of the lapels, I am guessing that they were made in the 40s or 50s. They are the most comfortable jackets I have ever worn. Â I read in various posts that some tailoring shops will produce a suit that fits closely like a military uniform, while others will produce something more like a satin-lined cardigan. Â These are like that, and I have to believe they were designed to be so, because they fit so well in the body, and drape but do not droop. There were no pants included, but as the famously difficult bespoke tailoring client Meat Loaf once sang, "two out of three ain't bad." I enclose pictures of one odd detail: the threading between lapel and collar. Â Most jackets have a cord (don't cut it, please) but these have a tiny web:
Here is the label. Â Does anyone know anything about this place, or this street? Â Is it the Savile Row of Rio?
