Midnight Blue Shawl Collar 2 Piece Dinner Suit
Inspired by the work of Anthony Sinclair in the 1960's who, from his bespoke tailoring premises on Conduit Street in Mayfair, created a classic, pared down shape, which became known as the Conduit Cut.
Sean Connery adopted the look, and wore Sinclair suits for all of his appearances as James Bond. The style is timeless, and as fresh today as it was when 007 first stepped onto the screen in 1962.
Sinclair's development of the Conduit Cut was a landmark in the history of Savile Row tailoring. The natural shoulder, roped sleeve head, a degree of chest drape, suppressed waist and slightly flared skirt create a subtle hourglass silhouette which traces the body with a peerless purity of line.
The Conduit Cut is a look that defines a man of sophistication and good taste and is a continued testament to the maxim that "less is more".
