Three parts of Four ( there’s a single-breasted waistcoat as well! )
British Bespoke from Cad & the Dandy
- another shot from the archives, this time in my first suit from my current tailors, Cad & the Dandy. A made to measure three-piece, with a double breasted, shawl lapel waistcoat. High waisted, forward pleat trousers & a two button, half lined, peak lapel coat.
It was a massive step up in quality & value from my previous MtM ventures & despite the slightly too high, too narrow lapels, remains one of my favourite suits. C & the D have moved on now to providing all levels of service from Made to Measure to full Savile Row Bespoke.
They remain my Tailors.
