In a made-to-measure suit, three components share the main role. The interplay of the construction, fabric and fit create the look of the jacket. As with a house, the construction is the basis that supports the other elements. It is therefore very important to choose the right type.
There are three types of construction: fused, half-canvas and full-canvas. Because of the quality standards to which we work, we do not offer the fused option.
Fused [glued interlining]:
In this construction, the outer fabric is connected to the interlining using a fabric glue. After it has been worn and cleaned a number of times, the glue starts to separate or shift in places. After a while, this causes bubbling and waves to appear in the jacket.
Half-canvas [half interlining]:
This construction is the most frequent variant for high-quality suits. It offers the advantages of a full-canvas jacket, but requires less work and is therefore more reasonably priced. The half interlining is sewn to the fabric and the padded lapel also contributes to the perfect look. Fabric adhesive is still used in some areas to fix important points additionally.
Full-canvas [complete interlining]:
In a fully canvassed suit, the interlining is sewn in completely, without any adhesive. This option requires a great deal of work and is the ultimate in terms of quality. There is a space between the fabric and the full interlining which can expand during wear. Every layer of the suit adapts to the wearer's shape, making it incredibly comfortable. The suit will last for a long time – an essential for every lover of quality suits.
