Purple Haze


One of our esteemed clients has just commissioned a rather sophisticated purpley-velvet combo which I had to share with you all. This rather suave jacket is crafted in a beautiful gabardine, and features a stunning purple silk velvet peak lapel, half moon jet pockets (complete with sprats head stitch) and carefully cut turned back cuffs that complete the look. The Elder Street atelier has also added some covered buttons to add the finishing touch. ‘Tis the season for pushing the boat out methinks…
