Classic Ivy Style

Yamamoto-san can most often be found in his classic Ivy tailoring, for which he sources vintage patterns and cloths. He has reinterpreted garments from old photos into complete garments that surpass their inspiration.

Bespoke Bedford Cord Suit

Using one of the fabrics from Yamamoto-san's private collection, Jim commissioned this grey corduroy suit, inspired by a photograph of Clark Gable in the mid 1950’s, complete with bellowed pockets and a self-belt.

Bespoke Olive Wool Gaberdine Suit

"I'd wanted an olive suit for the summer for a while but something dressier than cotton or linen, this gaberdine just jumped out at me. I made it dressier than my usual Caid pieces with flap pockets but still did the full lapped seams to give it the mid century edge that I love. Yamamoto San pointed out that it is just like the suit Jack Lemmon wears beside Catherine Denevue in "April Fools" in 1969, all the better." - Dick Carrol

Bespoke for Mr. M

"This is a classic mid-gray suit that’s easy to wear with a light blue shirt and a navy tie. The combination first caught my eye in Sean Connery’s second Bond film “From Russia with Love”. It’s a classic color, but the subtle texture gives it a little personality. It’s the kind of suit you can wear several times per week without anyone noticing." - Mr. M

The Model 99

This last example is of our Armoury exclusive Model 99, an international classic bespoke style. The theme of the Model 99 is President Roosevelt's famous phrase: "Tread softly and carry a big stick." We wanted to make a suit that a man could wear and look his best in many different situations. The garment would be subtle but flattering, with a sense of elegance but not flash. This piece was commissioned by Mr. S during one of our Tailor Caid trunk shows.
