Museum of London creates tweed suit for London Collections: Men

Published
Jan 8, 2015

For the upcoming AW15 season of London Collections: Men, which starts on Friday, the Museum of London has shown its fashion credentials by collaborating with Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons and its creative director Patrick Grant on a new bespoke three-piece tweed suit.

The suit will be shown off by musician and Londoner Tinie Tempah on the red carpet and is made from the Museum's own "London Tweed," which is inspired by Sherlock Holmes, who was known for wearing a tweed deerstalker and cape. The colours chosen for the tweed were based on the colours used in the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (blue
and yellow accents, against an urban grey) but Tempah chose everything, from the horseshoe waistcoat to the tapered trousers and a slim-fit single-breasted jacket with a flash of golden yellow lining, to create the suit.

"I think the Museum of London’s tweed is a cracker. Designing modern looking tweeds is a real dark art and I think the combination of the scale and colour just makes this one sing in a very modern way. It looks urban; it’s got a hint of the double yellow line about it, and the grey of the London skyline on a dreary day. It feels very contemporary. Tinie is a man with enormous personal style. Every suit made at Norton & Sons is an expression of the person who has commissioned it – and this suit for Tinie Tempah is no exception," said Patrick Grant, Creative Director of Norton & Sons.

After the suit has been worn at London Collections: Men, it will be added to the museum's textile and fashion collections.
