Bespoke Huntsman, Savile Row, Solaro suit

Bespoke Huntsman, Savile Row, Solaro suit. Bespoke Turnbull & Asser cornflower blue shirt with French cuffs. Hermes silk ‘snail’ tie. Turnbull & Assser silk pocket square. Edward Green suede tassel loafers.

The Huntsman Solaro is 11 oz. Iridescent olive green herringbone with the classic red weft showing through. This is evident in the penultimate photo of the inside leg of the photograph.

This Solaro suit was made for Walter Charles Lees. More information about the fascinating life of this gentleman may be obtained on the following link.

Please see below a very detailed account of the Solaro fabric history. I am most appreciative to Torsten of Sartorial Notes.

My collection consists of, predominantly, bespoke vintage Savile Row clothing, hats and St. James' bespoke shoes. It is my intention to share my collection through this blog. To give ideas & comment on putting outfits together. With thought to fabric weight, texture and colour.
