FU Plaid made me rethink..

Usually I use a common set of specifications (dimensions & details) for my suits, such as length of jacket/pants, cuff height pocket designs etc. But cloth design & type also dictates adoption to keep balance, proportion & scale in check.

As this cloth is quite heavy with fuzz & an almost 3D effect plaid, we had to tone down some of the details such as:

  • Smaller cuff - from 5cm to 4cm
  • Wider leg from knee down - less taper, though I may revisit this
  • Jacket body & buttoning point lowered by 1.5cm

The sum of the above now creates more drape & hence an elegant silhouette to counter balance the FU Fuzzy PLAID.

LongWong not LongWing or WingDings

What next? A heavier cloth also require heavier shoes - something like the classic Alden LongWings are perfect or a double sole derby.

This particular shoe was developed between Tassels Hong Kong & Alden to celebrate 125 years in a very limited run due to the rarity of colour #8 Scotch Grain Shell Horween cordovan. In addition to the rare leather, they opted for a single leather sole to dress it up.

My kind of fabric, nicely realised in a fantastic suit worn well.
