When I started my journey with A Suit That Fits, I was excited about the endless styling possibilities on offer. After completing my first order, from client Maria Healy, I can easily say I’ve not been disappointed.
Maria works for Regus in Pembroke House, where our Dublin Studio is located, but her passion is definitely music. She’s a DJ and, this summer, she’s heading to Ibiza for work. She wanted something a little special to take away with her so she came into the studio looking for a tailor-made jacket.
Like a lot of us, her colour of choice is black, but after looking at our range of 500 materials, she decided she wanted something a little more special.
We decided to make a linen jacket, because temperatures in Ibiza will be scorching.
After lots of giggles and fun, she chose a deep red linen to set off her dark hair and added a few extra sartorial details to make it more special. We added a half-black silk lapel, black silk pockets, black satin buttons on the cuff and white cuff stitching.
The exciting part was still to come. Maria chose to go with a very unique digitally printed lining. When using digital linings, we transform any photo of your choice into a bespoke lining.
Seeing as Maria is well on her way to becoming a superstar DJ, we thought the only thing appropriate was a mixing desk, the instrument behind her passion. We wanted her to be able to open that jacket and show the world exactly who she is.
Maria’s jacket turned out better than we’d ever imagined. She’s a very happy woman, as am I. This is what my job is all about: making people feel and look awesome and having fun while doing it. Mission Complete!!! Have a look for yourself and see if you agree.
