Tailored headcovers anyone ????????
« on: September 03, 2016, 08:01:22 AM »
I would like to introduce you to a guy who is making a load of noise in the world of tailoring, his suits and jackets are literally out of this world.

I have just returned from Belfast, Ireland and whilst I was there he showed me a couple of gems which blew my mind. The first is the 3 piece suit he made for Carl Frampton's title fight a few weeks ago in New York against Santa Cruz, it was a blue/grey worsted wool with a custom lining which was the NY city skyline and the date of the fight. The second was a Black silk suit for Sir Van Morrison with a sparkly purple pinstripe and a purple "spilt paint" lining.

We were asked to design a range of covers using his Local Tweeds, Worsted wools and Jacket linings, how could we say no?

His name ? you really couldn't make this up ............................. Christopher Suitor.

1st up are 4 Bespoke patchwork covers made using Holland and Sherry worsted wool/cashmere blends.

Thanks guys, we will actually be releasing some of our own covers made using Suitors amazing fabrics when we get time.

By the way he measured me up for a jacket which will have the most outrageous psychedelic marble lining, I will post a picture here when its ready, its a beaut.

These covers were made for Chris personally however we will be releasing our own Suitor range in the near future, all made using his stunning fabrics.

If there was one headcover that you really like we could make it for you no problem. The patchwork covers are all unique but we can make these too.

The one piece covers made from the silk linings are £40/$53 plus shipping

The 2 piece (tweed/silk) or the patchwork (wool/cashmere) are £45/$60 plus shipping.

The one piece silk covers will be exactly the same as the ones pictured above, hopefully there will be many different ones in the future.

Going by the jacket linings I saw when I was in Belfast these covers are going to be epic, he has everything from crazy paisley, splashed paint, half naked ladies 1930 style, all the classics and in every colour going.

I am really looking forward to working with guy because he is barking mad and full of creative genius, after our meeting we decided it would be a great idea to make a Harris Tweed putter grip!! Don't get me wrong it will be totally useless as a grip but why the hell not, if only for giggles.

Plenty more to come.

Hahahaha. Exactly. Why the hell not.
I like the covers and looking to pick up a silk lined headcover and the tweed grip, why not, lots of grips out there not meant to be gamers. I know a silk headcover won't stay in gamer rotation but will be used.
