Description

Edward Sexton is a legend in the world of bespoke tailoring. For more than 60 years​,​ Sexton has worked for some of the most prestigious houses in London​,​ before opening his own shop and creating his own and unique style and cut. Edward Sexton began his career in London in the early 60's. After some initial training in suit manufacturing​,​ he joined a small tailor named Harry Hall. There​,​ with the help of head cutter John Oates​,​ he became assistant cutter and trimmer. Sexton later joined more prestigious houses​,​ first Cyril Castle (later known for making the suits of Roger Moore during 12 years)​,​ followed by Kilgour French and Stanbury​,​ Welsh and Jefferies (one of the military tailor for Sandhurst)​,​ and finally Donaldson William and Ward in 1967. With these experiences​,​ he became a fully-trained tailor​,​ capable of making coats​,​ suits​,​ trousers​,​ and any kind of garment. At Donaldson​,​ he met Tommy Nutter. While Nutter didn't have the experience and technical skills that Sexton had​,​ he had a perfect eye for design and aesthetics. They began working together with a few clients​,​ to create a completely new style never before seen on Savile Row. In 1969​,​ they created together Nutters of Savile Row​,​ on 35. Savile Row. The first new establishment on the Row in more than a century​,​ it became an instant hit. Celebrities like Mick and Bianca Jagger (the matching white wedding suits)​,​ and most of the Beatles (notably Ringo Starr and his famous three-piece suit) flocked to Nutters​,​ along with the young high-society. The style was extravagant to say the least: very large sweeping lapels​,​ concave roped shoulders​,​ kicked-flare trousers​,​ bold patterns like oversized checks​,​ luxury fabrics like velvet or silk​,​ and much more. For more than 10 years​,​ Nutters was the tailor of the Row. In the 1980's​,​ Sexton and Nutter parted ways. In 1990​,​ Edward Sexton opened his own shop in Knighstbridge​,​ out of Savile Row. Over the years​,​ Edward Sexton grew into a respected institution​,​ in the same league as the Old Savile Row tailors. Nowadays​,​ it makes bespoke​,​ ready-to-wear​,​ made-to-measure​,​ and accessories​,​ with the same level of quality and precision in the cut as before​,​ with a modern eye. I propose a classic example of Edward Sexton bespoke style: a double-breasted tan suit in wool and silk with an herringbone pattern. With a low 4 on 2 buttoning stance​,​ sweeping lapels​,​ and large roped shoulders​,​ it is a statement piece​,​ perfect for spring and summer. The trousers are straight and feature two side-adjusters. The condition is excellent. The suit is best fitted for someone with a 36UK​/​46FR size​​​​,​​​​ around 1m75 tall. Here are the measurements Shoulders: 41cm Sleeve length: 61cm (with 3cm of fabric to let out) Chest: 46cm Waist at button: 48cm Jacket length: 76cm (collar included​​​​,​​​​ with 4​,​5cm of fabric to let out) Lapels: 12cm Waist for trousers: 42cm (with 5cm of fabric to let out) Length from inseam: 73cm Length total: 100cm (with 6cm of fabric to let out) Legs width: 22cm (with 5cm of fabric to widen it) Quality similar to the following bespoke houses: - In France: Camps de Luca​​​​,​​​​ Cifonelli​​​​,​​​​ Francesco Smalto​​​​,​​​​ Claude Rousseau​​​​,​​​​ Arnys​​​​,​​​​ Lanvin Mesure​​​​,​​​​ Urban​​​​,​​​​ Max Evzeline​​​​,​​​​ Opelka​​​​,​​​​ Kenjiro Suzuki - In Italy: Caraceni (Augusto or Domenico)​​​​,​​​​ Rubinacci​​​​,​​​​ Dalcuore​​​​,​​​​ Panico - In England: Anderson & Sheppard​​​​,​​​​ Henry Poole​​​​,​​​​ Huntsman & Sons​​​​,​​​​ Nutters of Savile Row​​​​,​​​​ Chittleborough & Morgan​​​​,​​​​ Richard Anderson​​​​,​​​​ Meyer & Mortimer
