I Don't Know What You Mean Miss Elsa....

Any of you that read this blog regularly will know I have been itching to do a dinner jacket like Sam's in Casablanca. His was in silk - or perhaps a polyester given it was Hollywood and they were on a low budget - but I opted instead to use flannel from Fox Brothers after an offering came my way from Will Boehlke of 'A Suitable Wardrobe'. Will had commissioned a roll of this cream flannel to be produced. The jacket came together with a great lining from Hunt and Winterbotham's agent in Sydney, Imperial Textiles and finally, the buttons, made of corozo, were gifted as samples by Raul Caulderon of Corozo Buttons. I picked up the jacket today and I could not wait to share it with you. I think it's probably going to get very little use, but it is the culmination of a great deal of time and effort. The cloth had to be commissioned by Will Boehlke, the lining had to be sourced, the buttons had to come from Panama and then the Italians had to work their magic to bring my idea to life. 

Here's looking at you kid....
