Mason & Sons commissioned the production of this classic tweed fabric in order to replicate the iconic hacking jacket worn by Sean Connery in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger. The cloth was produced by Abraham Moon in West Yorkshire – a company that has been weaving cloth since 1837 – the year in which Queen Victoria ascended to the British throne.
Due to high demand, any new Barleycorn Tweed orders won't start to ship until the second week of May.
"Half-canvas” construction incorporates a fusible interlining that is attached to the foreparts of the jacket using a heated press. A natural “floating” canvas is then sewn through the chest and lapels in the traditional manner, offering a soft, flexible drape.
Advantages: Cost effective speedy production, remains crisp and clean for a long-lasting flawless finish.
“Full-canvas” construction is the most popular upgrade request for Special Order suits. This skilled and time-consuming process incorporates layers of natural canvas used throughout the fronts of the jacket to provide support and shape.
Advantages: Extremely comfortable to wear and continues to improve with age as the natural materials adapt to the shape of the body over time.
“Handmade” suits are full-canvas garments that are cut and made by hand. Your exact size, shape, balance and posture requirements are assessed and the pattern is adjusted accordingly before the cloth is cut.
Advantages: Further enhanced fit, around the critical areas of collar, shoulder and sleeves, with hand-sewn buttonholes and edges marking true craftsmanship.
