Our friends Ken and Tony of Benson & Clegg were recently caught on film for a cutting room floor tour by ‘Jenny’s Streets of London’, a Travel Channel UK spot featuring Jenny Powell as she visits some of London’s greatest hidden treasures. It’s good to see Tony and Ken getting recognition for their work. You can see the work we’ve done together on a special Norfolk jacket collaboration below in fabric supplied by Hunter’s Tweed. Benson & Clegg will be visiting DC June 27-29, 2013. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for appointment.
We introduced Benson & Clegg not long ago during their visit to DC at Sterling & Burke. We had the pleasure of working with Mr. Tony Martin and Mr. Ken Austin in creating a made-to-measure country style Norfolk jacket ironically from their “City Wardrobe” collection in a lovely midweight Kildary Oldaney tweed supplied by our friends at Hunter’s Tweed.
This week our Menswear Dialogue Series continues in a discussion with a century old Tweed manufacturer in the Scottish Highlands. Hunter’s Tweed has a storied history of providing some of the most exquisite tweeds and cloths to many of Savile row’s most respected tailoring houses. We’ve had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Charles Inness the current owner of Hunter’s Tweed. Together we have a few special projects planned involving bolts of tweed and one of the oldest Savile Row tailors in operation. In the meantime, get to know Hunter’s Tweed.
