A Suit That Fits Blog
The Number One Suiting Resource
Tag >> bespoke ladies suit
One of my favourite trends in non-formal suiting recently has been the cropped trouser. The look has, over the summer been seen in all the fashion capitals of Europe, cementing it as a credible style for the smart gent.
The designer Thom Browne is the original trailblazer for and they are still very much his signature item today. He wears them with anything from a , to a and even a dinner suit!.
Back at the end of last year The Daily Telegraph ran a competition to win a ladies two piece suit. With generally every women I know finding it hard to get something fashionable, smart and that fits off the peg you can imagine we had hundreds of entries.
When the name was pulled out of the hat though there could only be one winner and that was the lovely Saskia Jiggins. Saskia was just about to start sixth form and needed a as a progression from school uniform.
Our ballshy no nounsance Rachel Harries was her Style Advisor, if you've ever met our Rach you'll know what I mean. She has a great nack of working out not just what you want but also what suits you without ever letting you stray to far from the path of classical suiting. With this being Saskia's first suit and it needing to be appropiate for school she went with a longer jacket and skirt with the skirt in a more traditional straight style. She picked a a medium weight navy pinstripe, Stripe D6103-3, this cloth has a sturdy quality to it that gives a beautiful silhouette. Saskia went with a slim fit to maintain a feminie shape without being to restrictive during school.
The hot pink lining and detailing also gave it that girly touch. Saskia's jacket was single breasted, two button, with a single vent, single vents being great for women of her slight build but not something I would recommend on a more curvy lady. Rachel gave Saskia slanted pockets on her jacket and horizontal ones on her skirt, perfect for a busy day of studying where pockets are a must! All in all a beautiful suit and one that has pleased the wearer, we're so glad you like your suit Saskia and would love to see you in the future.
Rachel was an absolute star throughout the process and was full of useful insight into small details that make a big difference.
