Jude Laws Dr. Watson’s English cut suits

Every suit ardent who has seen the new Sherlock Holmes movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law has had one comment: Jude Laws Dr. Watson reputation suits and sport coats were incredible! The stunning shape and flattering architectural lines of his jackets have caused rather a stir leaving humans curious as to whether a progressed version of his English cut suits may be made for them.

The English cut suit is one of the most requested looks most clothiers receive. Unlike it is baggy shapeless American or Flashy and constraining Italian cousins, The English cut suit is fitted yet elegant, with high cut armholes, crescent curved sleeves, high cut vents and compliment just the proper amount of waist suppression. It is without apparent effort one of the most influential looks in men’s tailoring. A authenti example though, is hard to come by. Long blended with the established Italian cuts, the hybrid version is the most mutual cut the general public will find in the stores. While there are some designers cut out there that come close to a progressed version, in it is truest form, the traditionalisti English cut featured in the movie is near inconceivable to find.

The Hallmarks of the Modern English Cut

While the traditionalisti cut English jacket is finelooking much extinct there are a great deal of designers out there that have taken their design cues from it. Designers and habit tailors such as Norton and sons, Richard James and Kilgour focus their cuts on the Savile Row style that has long been the driving strength in British tailoring. Unfortunately the purest forms of the cut will more likely come from the bespoke English habit suits these particular spatial arrangements craft, as off the rack the demand for them is minimal.

Here is a brief rundown on what to look for:

  • Shoulders: Dr. Watson’s jackets feature precisely tailored shoulders that have next to no padding. Constructed to mimic the wearers shoulders it is lines come from horse hair canvas and a felt pad, skipping the established stacked shoulder padding found in most suits.
  • Fabric: Tweed, Tweed and more Tweed. The beefy fabric is the best to pair with this cut as it is heavy weight allows the suit to carry a strong shape.
  • Length: Traditionally the English cut falls shorter than any other cut. Cropped to fall on the top knuckle of your thumb (where it connects to the hand) it is much shorter than it is Italian cousin and is the most mutual ingredient nixed from the hybrid off the rack versions.
  • Waist: Almost a byproduct of the short crop, the waist is normally cut with a high stance.
  • Vents: Higher cut than any other suit, it is a throw back to when the suits jacket was to be worn when riding a horse. In today’s version it gives a much more pronounced shape when paired with a high waist and button stance.
