Bespoke Henri Urban Mid-Blue End-on-End Suit - 36​/​46S

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 suit in mid-blue end-on-end wool. It is the perfect garment for spring and summer​​,​ either for work or other formal occasions. It notably features a classic parisian lapel​,​ the Henri Urban "winged" drop pocket​,​ and his typical slanted trousers pockets and cuffs. The condition is excellent. The suit is best fitted for someone with a 36 UK ​/​ 46 FR size​,​ around 1m70 tall.
