Beige Linen Bespoke Suit
When looking at the canon of cinematic tailoring, the beige single-breasted linen suit worn by Charlie Croker (played by Michael Caine) in The Italian Job is held in the most highest of regards. It's the last formal outfit he wears in the film before he slips into his heist gear and provides the cult classic with a perfect sartorial swansong. All of Croker's suits were made by Douglas Hawyard, who operated from his tailoring shop on Mount Street in the heart of Mayfair in London. Back in the day, our Master Tailor Henry Rose worked with Hawyard, as such he's the only known tailor in the world who can recreate the suit in such a like-for-like way. However, if you'd like to change any of the details – for example opting for patch pockets instead of slanted flap pockets – that's of course possible with Anthony Sinclair.
