The Telegraph Jacket & Trouser In Stretch Italian Wool

The telegraph jacket and trouser are a modern adaptation of very classic essential wool pieces. Let's face it, looking a bit more put together than usual is one of life's subtle pleasures, just so long as the act doesn't leave one feeling too precious.

 It's a nice feeling to arrive in London feeling as polished as all the other blokes, but not if your clothes aren't up for a sprint through Heahthrow, a ride on the tube and a 10 block walk to your flat. Better yet, it feels great to wear a jacket on a date and leave it on for dinner and dancing because its so comfortable that you forgot you even had it on.

The design process on this piece started with and is solely based around the fabric - a lightweight bird's eye wool with just a touch of stretch that we had milled to our specifications in Italy. Without exaggerating, this bit of stretch makes all the difference. It allows us to really dial in a tailored fit and still have the pieces feel unrestrictive and comfortable. We have tested the pieces biking around the city and running through airports and they have lived up to our expectations.

They can be worn together but our intention was to have them stand alone and pair well with dark denim or a sharp dress shirt. No matter your intentions, rest assured both the jacket and trousers are a year round weight in classic color ways that will serve you for years to come.
