WEAVES

There are several fabric weaving techniques that each create a unique finish.

Weave Picture Description
Plain The simplest weave style, using the same size warp and weft threads, woven together one by one.
Poplin A strong fabric in a plain weave, with crosswise ribs that give a soft, corded finish.
Oxford Heavier than poplin, The Oxford weave has a basket weave structure and a lustrous aspect, ideal for a dress shirt.
Pinpoint Pinpoint Oxford is a variation of the Oxford clot, using finer yarns, creating a subtle mix of Poplin and Oxford finishes.
Twill Twill is a textile weave with a pattern of diagonal parallel rib. The weft thread is passed over and under the warp threads repeatedly, with a space between rows to create the characteristic diagonal pattern.
Seersucker A thin, casual, cotton fabric, often striped or checkered. Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a wrinkled, relaxed appearance in places.
Dobby Dobby fabrics have more texture than plain weave fabrics. Dobby weaving raises or lowers the threads that run the length of the fabric to create patterns such as stripes, checks and designs.
Lacoste The original stitch configuration used in Lacoste shirts. The tucking pattern creates a honeycomb look on the back of the fabric.
Jacquard Jacquard weaves, produced on a loom, are characterized by statement woven-in designs and patterns, often with textured or tapestry effects.
Pinhead Is a very small pattern with tiny symmetrical dots.
Harris Tweed Material Harris Tweed is an unfinished woollen fabric, with a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven.
Herringbone A variation of the twill weave, Herringbone is a distinctive V-shaped weave pattern.

Suit Customisations

LAPEL

Notch:

Classic yet modern, the notched lapel is the standard in men's suiting. Categorised by a 'notch' where the jacket collar meets the lapel at a 75 - 90 degree angle. Can be used on a range of jackets, from an office suit to a relaxed sports coat or blazer.

Peak:

Defined by the lapel edges angling towards the shoulders. This lapel has traditionally been seen on formal morning or tail coats but can also be used on casual sports jackets and blazers. A wider peak lapel makes the ultimate statement.

Shawl:

Defined by its rounded edge, the shawl lapel is most commonly seen on dinner jackets and tuxedos however can look modern and sharp on a range of jackets.

BREAST

We offer the option of either a breast or not breast pocket. A breast pocket is the most common option, however tuxedos and more formal suits usually have no breast pocket.

POCKETS

Straight Pockets: A straight fabric is the most common type of jacket pocket as has a flap of fabric covering the top of the pocket.

Ticket Pockets: A ticket pocket is located just above the right pocket and us about half as wide.

Slanted Pockets: Slanted pockets are similar to straight pockets however they are on a slight angle, traditionally the purpose of this is make the pockets easier to open.

Patch Pockets: Patch pockets are a sporty pocket and are common on casual suits and linen suits.

LININGS

Tailors Mark uses Viscose King Lining and Bemberg linings for our jackets. These linings offer a comfortable, silk style feel and luxe drape. They are moisture absorbent and won't create static.
