This week our Menswear Dialogue Series takes us to the largest textile tradeshow in North America. You’ve probably heard of the apparel shows where boutiques and department stores buy the lovely things in the window you can’t afford, but you may not have heard of the tradeshow that provides the fabric that created that Summer weight double-breasted blazer you’ve been coveting. Today, we speak to one of the leaders in the textile market for her insight and recommendations on how to play the fabric game.
This week our Menswear Dialogue Series brings Savile Row to DC. Benson & Clegg recently paid their first official visit to Washington and held court at Sterling & Burke. However, before their trip we had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Kenneth Austin, head cutter and Mr. Mark Gordon in London to get their insight on the current and future state of Savile Row tailoring, menswear in DC, and a summer party for the queen. We’ve also been fortunate enough to have something special made by Ken and Tony. More on the fabric selection and fitting coming soon. In the meantime, we’re pleased to introduce you to Benson & Clegg.
