VICUÑA BESPOKE TAILORING
B E S P O K E V I C U Ñ A O V E R C O A T
When commissioned by a client, who lives in North America, to make him a bespoke overcoat of truly exceptional quality I, with the enthusiastic support of the gentleman in question, set out to create the ultimate expression of the bespoke tailor’s art.
Using only the very finest of materials from around the world including vicuna the world’s most expensive fabric, the highest levels of workmanship, and with every stage executed entirely by hand, my team of world class craftsmen and I created a bespoke overcoat that I am confident cannot be bettered anywhere in Australia, or overseas.
This section of our website records the making of this garment. You might also be interested to hear that a book on the making of this overcoat, the materials we used and the craftsmen and women who made this whole project possible, was published in mid-2013. Written by the American author Meg Lukens Noonan it is entitled The Coat Route: Luxury & Obsession on the Trail of a $50,000 Coat. This book has won the best non fiction book of the year for 2014, in the USA as voted by the American Society of Journalists and Authors. The book is sold in Australia & world wide. Signed copies of this book by John Cutler are available here.
