Inspiration

The Tiber Suit

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. 

Linen

The linen we use in our shirts is cultivated in Normandy, where favourable conditions and generations of knowledge gives life to the most precious linen of the world. Linen is a fibre which is European by history and tradition.

The nature, composition and architecture of the fibres give the flax excellent properties for warm weather - it's resistant, insulating, highly absorbant, thermo-regulating and non-allergenic.

The flax requires no additional irrigation on top of what the atmosphere provides, making it a self-sufficient and very environmentally-conscious choice. There is also no wastage in the weaving process as the entire plant may be used.

Side Adjusters

Side Adjusters

The sartorial alternative to belt loops; this detail gives a clean front and also gives the visual effect of lengthening the legs, whilst working to increase the comfort of your trousers. They are a hallmark of classic tailoring.
