Talk about buying on instinct… when I saw this fabric, I knew I had to have it! I instantly had a vision of what this fabric would look like as an impeccably tailored suit. This garment is a complete show stopper and head turner for all the right reasons! Now, I have to find an event worthy of such a unique suit. Pictured below is a sample of the suit from the Stricklandesign Bespoke F/W 16 Look Book.Read More
This is a beautiful 98% cotton, 2% spandex floral denim print that’s going to be a show-stopper as a two piece suit or dinner jacket. The twist on the dinner jacket is, as opposed to the traditional satin lapels, the lapels will be a dark blue denim with matching tuxedo denim slacks. The looks are pictured below. Please enjoy!
As I begin to make these blog posts, I’m noticing a pattern. As I’ve been out shopping for fabrics, I’ve definitely become inspired by the idea of an “Urban Jungle.” These animal prints are bold, graphic patterns that are equally at home on a sharp cut jacket or pair of slacks. These are completely unconventional prints for menswear, but paired with a perfectly cut bespoke suit, the contrast is going to be stunning!
Pictured below are new looks from the Stricklandesign Bespoke F/W 16 Collection with the application of the snakeskin fabric. One look is a two piece suit, while the second garment is a dinner jacket, with the addition of black satin lapels and wool or kid mohair tuxedo slacks.
