Fabric & Materials
Our dedication to creating high quality menswear led us on a journey to find the perfect materials for our tailored trousers. We wanted a fabric that was both comfortable and durable, and evaluated many samples from Italian and British mills. We unanimously agreed on our first choice: a fine twill woven by Brisbane Moss.
We aim to use only natural materials in our products, therefore genuine horn was an obvious choice for the buttons. We opted for a classic shape made from high quality buffalo horn. The horn was slightly buffed to achieve a clean and elegant look.
We drew inspiration from our bespoke tailoring roots while developing our ready-to-wear trouser collection. The traditional button fly found on our trousers is rarely used outside bespoke tailoring and is a true nod to the classical trousers made by A. Besnard more than a century ago.
Another feature that originated in tailoring are the side-adjusters that ensure a perfect fit around the waist. Our buckles come from the same British company that is also trusted by some of the famous tailors on Savile Row.
Our trousers are cut with a high rise and are tailored with single pleats that allow for a clean lined drape to the hem. The slight taper gives the piece a modern look. We’ve left the hems unfinished, so that you can have them tailored to your own sartorial preference.
We pay meticulous attention to the details of our products. Not only for aesthetic reasons but also for comfortability.
After dinner split – The v-shaped cut at the back of the waistband allows for more movement of the fabric around the waist.
Curtain waistband – Our trousers feature a comfortable curtained waistband made from pure cotton.
AMF stitching – AMF stitching – also known as pick stitching – is a technique used on the pockets and fly of our trousers. This decorative stitch was historically done by hand by skilled artisans. AMF was named after American Machine & Foundry; the company that invented an efficient pick stitching machine.
