Unlike most tailors, who will only use natural fibres such as wool, silk & linen, we like to experiment with the amazing effects which can be obtained with newer fabrics, such as lycras, spandex & lurex, giving careful consideration to the fit & ease of movement & the intended use of the garment. On the other hand, well cut, well made suits, in the conservative, wonderful Italian wools, cashmere, lambswool & merino are also extremely satisfying to make.
