Loring & Co. Ready-wear suit jackets

  One of the best parts of my job is searching for the finest curated goods to offer my customers.  Working with gifted craftsmen like Otis James, Wesley Knight, and Steven Dang is a wonderful reminder that the tradition of producing quality, handmade items continues!    With that in mind, I am excited to introduce my own collection of ready to wear garments for men.  The first designs I’ve chosen are three one-of-a-kind pieces: two suits and one sport coat.  For fall I’m offering a tan herringbone Zegna cashmere and wool suit, a slate blue tweed rail-stitch eight ounce wool suit, and an olive and brick Prince of Wales plaid sport coat, also in an eight ounce wool. This is just the beginning!    Please drop by. As always, we guarantee a perfect fit.

One of our favorite experiences is to have the great privilege of helping design and coordinate wedding ensembles. This past January, we had such a privilege with our friend, Drew Hill. He chose a midnight navy tuxedo with grosgrain shawl collar. He looked elegant and sophisticated, just the way a groom should on his wedding day.

Best wishes to Drew and his wife Jessica, may your lives be blessed beyond measure!

Last week was our celebration week for our friend and Loring & Co. partner, Herndon Means. Affectionately known as “ Homestead”, “Herman”,“Hendon”, or “Herschel” he answers to anything! Because he is “so strong” and fast, and we love him, he received a pair of Cobbler Union shoes.

If you haven’t heard of Cobbler Union, please to check them out! They are our new best friends. cobbler-union.com.   

Cobbler Union is part of a small group of independent European shoemakers who share a passion for true craftsmanship and work to preserve the skills of the handmade shoemaking craft. 

Their product is impeccable and I can tell you from personal experience their customer service is unequalled.

Summer seersucker

 
 Nothing says classic southern summer style like seersucker.  
This Loring & Co. version features double a breasted front, peak lapels, side vents, surgeons cuffs, premium horn buttons, and full canvas details. We’ve added a 6 button vest with full collar to enhance the look. A vest is the new essential when ordering a custom suit, it adds a dimention to your look and also gives versatility. The coat can be worn separately with a navy, khaki, pink, yellow, or red chino. The pants can be paired with a navy blazer or pastel sport coat. Wear the vest with jeans, khakis, or any summer linen pant. To complete this look we’ve added the navy silk tie from our Otis James collection, a Loring & Co. vintage pocket square and a handmade boutonniere. The only thing missing is a mint julep! We have those too!
