I always wondered whether there were brands that designed haute couture for men - is it like tailoring

Aren't custom made shoes, suits, shirts etc. for men in a way like couture?

Things that take a lot of time and energy as well as exquisite technique to make I suppose.

There are some jackets with a lot of hand pleats to make a pattern, this takes a lot of work.
I believe Mcqueen used this tecnique in his 05-06 collection.

The making of a Sartoria jacket or Anatomica shirt could be considered Couture for men.

Thanks for starting this thread Raimund, got round to it quicker than i did !

From what i remember reading its only available at London Harvey Nichols so far. A relatively small concept collection of clothes only available in black with exception of one or two items and the reindeer skin leather accessories. Pieces are constructed using the finest materials available, one example being that apparently only 3 cashmere overcoats are able to be made from the limited stock of high quality cashmere, everything fully lined in silk etc.

I'll see if i can post the article and photos.

Winston.

it sound semi-interesting..
I can't believe the quality is THAT good though.

Also, how are the designs?

Im obsessive over quality...

So I will need to see something in the flesh before I can make a judgement.

Im doubting the quality because its a label we have never heard of before, possibly.

hmmm...that's a bit premature imo...i think i'll reserve judgement until i can get more info...i have no reason to believe this couldn't be something great...

i am curious about the designs and styles though...
my concern is that they might be on the conservative and stiff side...
