Mohair Mod Suit

David Reeves

This is a post put up on the fly really as I noticed a few Mod sites taking a look at the blog since I posted about Dormeuil Tonik Mohair. I thought "the faces" would find this interesting.

A while back a young trader here in New York wanted something styled in a modernist way. As soon as he told me this I knew this suit had to be made from Mohair. Unlike myself he went for what is probably Tonik's most distinctive color.

This Gentleman was training for a triathlon during his fittings and actually went down three suit sizes. You can see the athleticism in the suit itself. The suit is made rather short in the "bum freezer" style, unusually and bucking trends now it is a three button fastening with quite a high break. I kept the lapels a bit wider though and the styling quite sharp to keep it looking current rather than a reproduction of a 60s suit. I also purposely used black horn buttons rather than Navy to give the suit an almost animated sharpness.
