Blue Grey Prince of Wales Check Single Breasted Suit
Originally based on a Scottish gameskeeper's check, but popularised by Edward VIII, the Prince of Wales check is one of Britain's greatest gifts to the world of tailoring. Subtle enough to easily pair with patterned shirts and yet with a distinct character of it's own, it comes to life on a suit such as this. Striking, and yet incredibly adaptable.

The Serchio Suit is one of our signature house styles, available year-round and cut in a dark charcoal Super 130s merino wool that works well in all formal situations.
The Tiber Suit is one of our signature house styles, available year-round and cut in the perfect shade of navy blue. If you only have one suit, this should be it.
One of the biggest pleasures when purchasing a Made to Measure suit is choosing the lining. We use and recommend bemberg linings for their superior comfort.
Bemberg is a high-quality brand of cupro produced in Japan. Made from cotton, it is light and durable with a silky touch.
Bemberg is also anti-static and anti-cling for added comfort. Its advantage over a synthetic fibre is that it wicks sweat and humidity away from the body, and this biodegradable fabric is produced from a renewable resource.
A Contemporary house style drawing inspiration from British and Italian Tailoring tradition. Garments are Made in Italy and designed to work in harmony with an Antipodean climate and lifestyle. Soft, comfort-focussed artisanal construction allows the wearer to feel effortlessly ennobled without restriction.
Crane Brothers works with dozens of the world’s finest cloth mills, offering an incalculable number of exciting options to create with, from light Italian twills to the luxurious and tactile British flannel. Our staff will be able to guide you through the selection process, understanding your requirements for the garment and helping you select a fabric that offers the right blend of aesthetic, weight, performance and tactility.
Ensure the perfect fit through guidance and measurement in store. Our garments are cut, constructed and finished by hand at our central Italy factory. We use hand-canvassing on all of our jackets, a process which, when paired with our soft shoulder line and full sleeve head, gives them unparalleled freedom of movement. Our house shape is soft through the shoulder with a full sleeve head and a gently suppressed abdomen, designed to work in concert with our finely tailored trouser shape.
