Every now and again, we like to show you how our Oliver Brown insiders wear the collections. As our expert in-house tailor, Juan Carlos (also known as JC) lives and breathes tailoring, has exacting standards and knows good sartorial taste when he sees it. He describes his style as classic and elegant with a modern twist, so has chosen three classic tailoring ensembles from the current collection. The first is the Oliver Brown single-breasted dinner suit, perfect for black tie events - not necessarily one of JC's day-to-day outfits! The jacket is made from 100% wool worsted barathea sourced from a mill in Huddersfield, while the lapel facing is fashioned from pure silk grosgrain, with matching buttons and jet pockets. JC sports our double-breasted tweed overcoat - the perfect warm winter coat for wearing with smart tailoring in the city. As they're specially designed to be worn over your suit, choose your regular size and there'll be plenty of room for those extra layers. Here's JC wearing a smart single-breasted navy city suit from our tailoring collection, along with his signature red braces and a navy silk tie.
"I never dress for work without my braces; these are my signature - I like my trousers to be comfortable and to sit at the proper height."If you're looking for more sartorial inspiration - or perhaps some bespoke or made-to-measure tailoring from JC himself - contact us at [email protected] to request an appointment.
