Mr. Van Der Spek | Three Pieces

In time for his summer wedding, I finished this three piece suit for Mr. Van Der Spek. The exterior wool is a light weight tweed, and the accent fabric a lovely wool/silk blend. The copper art-deco buttons were a great find, and the turquoise silk lining with accenting mint green ribbon and seam bindings are fun and necessary.

The one tool I do not have in my studio is an adequate button hole machine for coat button holes. Thankfully I'm typically a purist and opted for these traditional welted holes instead...a handsome combination with the contrasting edge of the lapel and top collar, wouldn't you say?

The trousers matched the set, of course, and were also lined in the turquoise silk. It is my intention to replace these drab studio snapshots with photos of the clients themselves in their new custom pieces.

i would absolutely wear that vest with a tight white t-shirt and a very dark wash of denim. and then i would absolutely have to shop for new brown boots...
