Men of Style: Notables in Burberry Tailoring

Burberry Men Men of Style: Notables in Burberry TailoringChris Hemsworth, Hugh Dancy & Ryan Seacrest wore a Burberry tailoring to events recently. It seems the Burberry suit is a staple go-to item for men looking to polish up and prep out. Most men describe dressing as a chore, it’s nice to see these Men of Style clean up so well. Burberry’s classic look sets the tone for immaculance and handsome dress without coming across as stuffy or stiff. We find the brand to been fresh, on trend and perfectly tailored.

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS:

CUTTING THE FABRIC
The fabrics are hand cut by professional tailors

CANVASSING
Burberry suits use half canvas panels
The canvas holds the shape of the suit and keeps it from losing shape
The canvas is cut to the jacket’s shape and then wool is stitched to the canvas
Over time, the canvas conforms to your body’s shape, creating the perfect fit

ENGINEERING THE PERFECT SHOULDER
The shoulder is an area of focus for demonstrating the quality of a suit
There should be no ‘puckering’ or ‘drag lines’ in the fabric; the shoulder should be clean, smooth and completely three-dimensional
This is achieved using the ‘basting technique’ – machine-sewing processes completed over specially developed rounded stitching molds, helping to create contours

ENGINEERING THE BREAK LINE
The area where the lapels are buttoned together in a ‘V’ shape should not be pressed flat, but should curve gently
This is achieved using a special sewing machine with a rounded needle
This needle emulates the tailor’s hand and gently turns the fabric as it is sewn, giving a gentle curve effect

SPECIALISED STEAMING AND PRESSING
Burberry suits are three-dimensional and have fluidity and movement
To achieve this, a number of specialised pressing moulds that emulate the human body are used during sewing and finishing
40 pressing processes take place to achieve the three-dimensional effect – 20 presses take place during the construction of the jacket and 20 take place when the jacket is finished

HAND STITCHING
Sleeve linings are all hand sewn into the garment
The collar is hand sewn ensuring a smooth, clean fit around the neck
