Max - Punk Poet Tailoring

Brief:

John Cooper Clarke goes to a wedding

Cloth:

Harrisons of Edinburgh

13 oz Pure Wool Jacketing.

Grey.  

Lining - LBD

Cream.

 

 

John Cooper Clarke Coat


 

Bespoke

Notes:

 With long limbs and a narrow torso Max explained that Off-the-Peg rarely works for him. But when people think of tailoring they often think it's just suits - not Max's style, so he'd never had anything made for him before. 

It was great fun to work on something a little unusual and to show how traditional tailoring techniques can complement any personal style. 

The high stand and fall collar is far more flattering to a slighter frame than lapels and the self-covered buttons keep it from looking too militarian.
