Classic, yet playful
That’s how Jort Gelder, “the face and frontman” of Suitsupply’s new “Jort”-line describes the collection that was released in November 2013.
The collection itself consists mainly of suits and jackets that feature full canvas construction, hand-sewn pleated shoulders (La Spalla Camicia) and horn buttons, flannel and moleskin trousers with side-adjusters (and as a rarity, buttoned cuffs), all made of high quality materials from the famous fabric houses like Vitale Barberis Canonico, E.Thomas and Harris Tweed.
The shirts in the collection are made of Egyptian cotton (by Thomas Mason) featuring as well hand-stitched pleated shoulders, hand-made button holes, mother-of-pearl buttons and wide-spread collars.
In addition to suits, overcoats, sport coats, shirts and trousers the collection is complemented by accessories such as silk-cashmere socks, cashmere gloves, suspenders and velvet slippers.

Classic and elegant chalk-striped three-piece perfectly made for business. On the other hand the neapolitan shoulders and patch pockets make it possible to wear the jacket as well by itself. It is remarkable feature that all the jackets (except the dinner jacket) in the collection feature patch pockets.
Being one of the most restrained pieces of the collection this plain gray birdseye suit made from fine S140s wool is an easy choice to combine with blues and browns.
