Bespoke Bricker & Mellowe 3-Piece Tweed Suit - 40​/​50R

Description

Bricker & Mellowe was an English tailor located close to Savile Row from 1940 to 2002. Formed by old cutters of Hawkes of Savile Row (now Gieves & Hawkes)​​​,​​​ Bricker & Mellowe was a small operation that made beautiful suits and sporcoats in a typical english cut. The shoulder is soft​​​,​​​ with a slight roped sleevehead. The chest is cut close​​​,​​​ the sleeve is relatively narrow​​​,​​​ but still rounded enough to move easily. The trousers are double-pleated inwards​​,​ high-waisted​​,​ with a roomy straight cut. It is an excellent blend between Gieves & Hawkes and Anderson & Sheppard respective styles. In the 1980's​​,​ they partnered with Benson​​,​ Perry & Whitley​​,​ based in Cork Street (in the same old building where George Cleverley worked). They are most known for being the official tailor of James Bond creator​​,​ Ian Fleming. David Niven​​,​ renowned for his style and classicism​​,​ also used their services for the 1967 film Casino Royale​​,​ notably for a very original double-breasted morning suit. During the 1990's​​​,​​​ Bricker & Mellowe moved in the same building as Meyer & Mortimer​​​,​​​ one of the oldest tailor still in activity​​​,​​​ at 6 Sackville Street​​​,​​​ London. I propose a magnificent Bricker & Mellowe heavy donegal tweed 3-piece suit​​. It will become your favorite suit for winter and the countryside​,​ with a nice pair of brogues or boots. Made in 1993​​​,​​​ it belonged to the owner of a big cashmere maker based in Paris. It is fully handmade​​​​​​,​​​​​​ from the lining to the buttonholes​​​​​​,​​​​​​ from the shoulder to the collar. The conditions is excellent. The suit is best fitted for someone with a slim 40UK ​​​​​/​​​​​​50FR size​​​​​​,​​​​​​ or a strong 38UK​​​​​/​​​​​48FR size​​​​​,​​​​​ around 1m75 to 1m80 tall.
