A Lapel with Natural Roll

Rolling lapel

Rolling lapel — 1000’s of stitches and light padding to maintain a natural roll.

Rolling lapel

Rolling lapel

A quality lapel should be lightly padded on the inside with a cotton and horsehair canvas, and should have 1000’s of stitches to give it volume and prevent it from flattening. Unlike cheaper lapel constructions, which are pressed to a sharp, flat crease, a roll creates a rich, dynamic fluidity that eventually takes on the wearer’s shape—this is a key giveaway of a quality crafted lapel.

Barchetta pocket

Barchetta pocket

Named after the Italian word for a small boat, a barchetta pocket is a welted chest pocket with a gently curved opening resembling the shape of a boat. A time-intensive accent requiring an experienced hand, this Italian detail complements the shape of the lapel roll and follows your body shape more naturally—all while creating the illusion of height and providing some traditional flair.

The Pick Stitch

Pick stitched pocket — Adds a touch of sartorial flair.

Pick stitching, also known as AMF stitching after the sophisticated machine that creates it, is stitching that lies along the edge of the jacket, shoulder, lapel and pockets. A true sign of expert craftsmanship, this detail not only keeps the lining in place, but it also keeps the edges sharp and prevents rolling and curling.

The Neapolitan Seam

Slightly angled

Neapolitan Seam

A true Neapolitan seam is angled slightly backwards, not only obscuring the seam from the front, but also providing more comfort as it naturally curves with your shoulder. With the difficulty of correctly matching the front and back jacket panels, this intricate seam requires an experienced artisan hand.

The Functional Buttonholes

Functional Buttonholes

Functional buttonholes — Leave one unfastened to show just how sophisticated your suit truly is.

Officially known as surgeon cuffs, as they were made for 19th century surgeons needing to roll up their sleeves, functional cuff are just that—cuffs that you can button or unbutton. While most suits feature fixed buttons that are purely aesthetic, functional buttonholes give you more versatility.

An unseen and underappreciated detail that makes a huge difference when it comes to comfort and mobility, an after-dinner split is a small split in the top center of the back of the waistband that grants a bit of give when sitting. Though miniscule in size, it’s a big indicator of quality constructed trousers... and a much needed feature after any large meal.
