The power of tailoring goes without saying, nothing makes me feeler cooler and more confident than wearing a two-piece suit. It requires zero thinking, little maintenance and if tailored correctly can be really comfortable. Simultaneously the most stress-free, put together method of dressing. Once reserved for corporate environments, nowadays tailoring can suit pretty much any occasion, naturally, when styling these shots I subconsciously channeled an inner Mick Jagger (I'm a sucker for The Stones fashion circa '62-'69) which not everyone might want to replicate, but day to day I love how effortless a suit can be chucked on together with a roll neck and some trainers as a laid-back autumnal transition.
Originally a men's suiting fabric from the 19th century nicknamed after the Duke of Windsor whilst Prince of Wales, the pattern is becoming increasingly popular in women's wardrobes. Last autumns runways were rife with the check and it shows no sign of disappearing, which is always indicative of a classic.
Made up of two dark and two light stripes alternating with four dark and four light stripes to create a crossing pattern of irregular checks (complicated stuff!), Jigsaw has adapted the distinctly recognisable Prince of Wales Check in their new Seville Fit suit (a full tailoring guide to find your perfect style can be found here). Head over to the Jigsaw journal for my tips on caring for your tailoring and other general babblings from me.
