Bespoke Henri Urban Blue-Grey Heavy Mohair Suit - 38​/​48R

Description

Henri Urban was one of those parisian tailors for the discerning few. An apprentice of Joseph Camps​​,​ and later one of his head-cutter along Francesco Smalto and Claude Rousseau​​,​ Mr Henri Urbanczyk (shortened to Urban) was a formidable technician. He settled on his own in 1967​​,​ and was renowned for his attention to details. According to the people who worked with him​​,​ he would count the number of hand stitches on a garment​​,​ and asked to redo it entirely if it didn't match his criterias. Henri Urban was the most expensive Parisian tailor. A two-piece suit started at 50 000 francs​,​ or 19 000 euros today. During 30 years​,​ having a suit made by Henri Urban was a sight of luxury​,​ good taste and understatement. Some of his clients included captain of industry like Francis and Martin Bouygues​,​ Natan and Bernard Darty​,​ and many others. His son Franck continues to work in the garment industry​,​ as a representative for Holland & Sherry in France. I propose a beautiful Henri Urban blue-grey suit in heavy mohair. Made in 1978​,​ it is the perfect garment for the mid-season as a business suit and formal occasions. It notably features his classic parisian lapel​,​ the cut of the lining and his slanted trousers pockets​,​ and even a "point baguette" (an handmade seam along the line of the trousers​​​,​​​ similar to what you could find on a tuxedo trousers​​​,​​​ but without the satin band). As always with Henri Urban​​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​​ it is fully handmade​​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​​​​​,​​​​​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar​,​ along with the trousers. The condition is excellent. The suit is best fitted for someone with a strong 38UK​/​48FR or a slim 40UK​/​50FR size​,​ between 1m75 and 1m80.
