“Like every good man, I strive for perfection, and, like every ordinary man, I have found that perfection is out of reach – but not the perfect suit.”  – Edward Tivnan

Power, especially in the context of business and politics, is an elusive quality.  It is sought after by nearly everyone, but attained by only a few.  From season to season, an item of fashion gains noteworthy popularity as an emblem of power.  We may say that a red tie is a power tie at one time.  In another season, perhaps the yellow or purple tie occupies the position of power.  Perhaps no other item of clothing embodies authority and influence like that of a well-tailored power suit.

The custom tailored suit is the ranking favorite among power brokers everywhere.  While the details of single or double-breasted styling, lapel options and button counts may vary, it is clear that the strong shoulder line, accentuating the masculine form is the dominant characteristic of the quintessential power suit.   The chalk-stripe suit, in the classic colors of navy and gray, is often the first to come to mind when imagining the power suit.  The clout of this authoritative wardrobe choice goes well beyond the surface.  It is the hand cut and tailored details that define this expression of influence, resulting in powerful combination intended to make the owner look like a million bucks.   Our task as custom tailors is to assist you in the discovery of your strong suits so that each exudes comfortable confidence.

Consider your personal sense of style when fitting a suit: double-breasted suits are generally dressier than their single-breasted counterparts. Coats without a vent are sleeker.

Fabric selection should follow your wearing needs. If you travel frequently in your suits, be sure to select heavy-wearing fabrics. A suit for occasional use can be made of lighter, dressier fabrics.

Keep your wardrobe long-lasting and effective by getting a custom suit crafted to your needs, not the momentary fads. A fine suit, tailored to your frame and preferences, is enduring. That’s value.
