Classic British Suits
British suiting has a rich heritage and a long-standing tradition of excellence. Why are traditional suits a good investment and what makes them so special?
Classic British suits are gently waisted which gives them a smartness and elegant silhouette. The traditional firmer shoulders ensures the suit sits well on the body. They generally have sturdier canvas interlinings which also maintains the shape.
Britain has a rich heritage of wool suiting cloths, and Cordings is proud to be working with British mills with as long a pedigree as Cordings itself. Traditional cloths such as birdseye and flannel are timeless and distinctly British.
Cordings suit jackets have a half canvas construction, with working button cuff. Our trousers come with brace buttons and side adjusters, thoughtful, traditional details which set them apart.
Are two button or three button suits better?
Cordings offer both two button and three button suits, most gentlemen will have both in their wardrobe, and it is a personal preference which you prefer.
