In the last decade, I have interviewed some of the finest tailors in the world. Edward Sexton from Savile Row is one of them.

In 2015, I had the privilege of meeting Edward, a highly fascinating figure in the realm of Savile Row tailoring. Today, we mourn his passing, knowing that the world of tailoring has lost a truly irreplaceable talent.

Edward has had a long history of mentoring Stella McCartney, as well as creating suits for famous bands like the Beatles and Rolling Stones. Throughout the years, McCartney and her family have regularly ordered suits from Sexton. When Stella was in her final year at Saint Martins in London, Sexton played a crucial role in assisting her with her debut collection. This collection was showcased by renowned models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.

In addition, he has created custom suits for notable individuals such as Joan Collins, Cilla Black, and Mick Jagger.

Additionally, Sexton has a keen understanding of the distinctions between designing suits for women compared to men. With this knowledge, he emphasizes the importance of women investing in quality suits, which typically come with a price tag of at least 6000 pounds.

Wearing A Man’s Suit Won’t Cut It

In 2014, I had the opportunity to wear a stylish man’s suit from the renowned English brand Pretty Green, which was previously owned by Liam Gallagher, the lead singer of Oasis. To complete the ensemble, I paired it with a sophisticated man’s shirt. Adding a touch of elegance, I accessorized with freshwater pearls and styled my hair in soft curls, evoking a chic Coco Chanel-inspired look. When it comes to women’s suits, there is a noticeable difference between off-the-shelf options and tailored suits.

Bespoke Tailoring Fits The Figure

The quality of a tailored suit is reflected in the price. For example, famous Australian actress Margot Robbie is seen here wearing a custom-made suit specifically designed for her 9-5 workdays. As women begin to return to the office after a long two-year absence, wearing a tailored suit can make a powerful impression. It’s a statement of confidence and attention to detail that can’t be matched by off-the-shelf options.

When visiting a tailoring shop, there are numerous wool options available for women to choose from. However, one popular choice among them is tweed. When it comes to suits for women, there is no comparison between off-the-shelf options and tailored suits.



How To Choose Your Suit Colour

Investing in a well-tailored suit made from high-quality wool fabric, such as tartan or plain, can be a wise decision for long-lasting durability. With the potential for rising energy prices, gas explosions, and the threat of war, it is crucial to make smart choices. While many families may struggle to afford basic necessities, some individuals will prioritize purchasing a high-quality wool suit. The economic downturn may lead to increased demand for bespoke suits as people seek to alleviate the stress of providing for their families. It is essential for women to recognize and appreciate their personal wealth in these challenging times.


Three Piece Suits

When ordering a three-piece suit for women, it’s important to allocate enough time for the process. This is because suiting for ladies requires careful consideration and attention to detail. Take the time to think about what you want the suit to be for you and how you want it to make you feel. Consider options such as wide or slim leg trousers and single or double-breasted jackets. On average, it takes about four fittings to ensure that the suit fits perfectly. This personalized experience is all about getting a suit that is made to measure, resulting in a shared adventure between you and the tailor.

The appeal of a three-piece suit lies in its ability to tap into a woman’s inner self and passion. It goes beyond mere clothing and becomes a niche product that resonates with her on a deeper level.

When it comes to the fabric, it’s important to understand that it’s not just about its ability to drape and hang. Tailored tolerance plays a key role, allowing for super ease and movement. This means that the suit should be cut in a way that allows for both comfort and flexibility.

I am an animated personality and this suit has to work with my movements, not the other way around.

Repair And Update With Flair

If you have a suit that can be customized to fit your body, it is worth considering alterations. For example, I recently came across a brand new three-piece suit from Savile Row at a charity shop. Although it is a stunning suit, the wool color does not suit me personally.

Bespoke suits are known for their timeless and versatile nature. These garments are crafted with expertise and care, resulting in a high-quality product.

However, there is a question to be raised: do men’s suits appear too masculine for women in today’s society? Could this be why women are not choosing bespoke suits as frequently?
