Inform The President I'm Coming!

Due to popular demand & an invitation from the President himself (just kidding) I'll be visiting Washington DC in June 2009.

The last time I was in DC, was 21 years ago, when I worked for Edward Sexton. We stayed at the Hay-Adams then & enjoyed a wonderful meal at The Lafayette, along with Edward's wife who reminisced about the swinging sixties & the party's they went to with The Beatles & The Rolling Stones.

I carry a wide selection of cloths but if anyone has any particular requestes for a certain bunch, please don't hesitate to ask.

Obviously the days between cities I will be traveling. However, there maybe an opportunity to see customers, late afternoon, early evening of those days.

If you’d like to make an appointment, I would appreciate it if you could contact me prior to the trip, so that I can organise my day to accommodate everyone.

SAS - (Swiss Army Suit)

We were recently asked to endulge on a project by a customer of ours that he had been thinking about for some time.

The idea was that of a multi-functional suit, ie. in his words a "Swiss Army Suit"...

The reason for this unusual but great idea was to cut down on the number of things that he needed to pack for trips, whilst still wanting a gulf between formal and casual wear.
The end result was a 3-piece Suit which could be worn with either the waistcoat or not, and a jacket with inter-changeable buttons to transform it from a suit jacket to blazer or to a more relaxed sports jacket, with Mother of Pearl buttons.
Judge for yourself the contrast in outfits by changing the buttons and accessories.
