About The Russell Kashket Collection
The terms bespoke, made to measure and ready to wear have become interchangeable throughout the global tailoring industry. You will find differing descriptions and opinions on tailors and fashion websites, blogs, dictionaries and even Wikipedia. At Russell Kashket we focus on making suits; rather than confusing people about them and debating historic tailoring concepts.
The Russell Kashket Collection is made by hand in a ready to wear format. This means our Tailors design and grade our cutting blocks by hand. Only first generation patterns used and all design and development work is undertaken personally by Russell Kashket with his specialist team.
Russell Kashket has incorporated classic bespoke suit production techniques into his Ready to Wear collection ensuring the highest quality standards are met. For example:
Fabric is cut using layup techniques that ensure grain, stripes, textures and patterns are continuous through the garment. This is why our lines match perfectly on a classic pin or chalk stripe garment.
- We use a full canvas, padded by hand to create a soft roll
- Our button holes are stitched by hand
- During basting a suit we use an open lay technique to attach the lining by hand
- All edges are hand stitched as are pockets and collars which are also hand inserted
Our Tailors based in Tottenham, London make the Russell Kashket collection on the same production tables as they make for Royalty and Officers whether Uniform, Suiting or other clothing.
The Ready to Wear Collection is an inspiration in terms of style, design, fabric choice, comfort and tailoring skill all brought together by the Master Craftsman that is Russell Kashket and his team.
