Bespoke Bricker & Mellowe Camel Gabardine Suit - 40​​/​​50 R

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. 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 beautiful Bricker & Mellowe camel gabardine suit​​,​ resembling a solaro fabric. It will become your favorite garment for spring and summer​,​ with brown loafers or oxfords​,​ and a button-down shirt. The trousers are double-pleated inwards​,​ high-waisted​,​ with a roomy straight cut. Made in 1986​​,​ 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.
