Many who are new to custom tailoring are not familiar with the differences between a hybrid fused, half canvassed or fully canvassed suit. We offer all three options. The canvas is the layer of interlining that can be found between the outer wool fabric and the inner lining of a suit jacket.
In our hybrid fused jackets, both the front panel and lapels of the jacket are fused with the interlining. The chest piece is sewn to the outer wool fabric on the chest area. This allows the jacket to drape naturally over your chest conforming to the shape of your body. Our high tech German fusing machines help us eliminate issues of stiffness or splitting.
In our fully canvassed suits, the wool is applied throughout the entire jacket from the top of the shoulder down to the hemline. The wool canvas is hand-stitched to the interlining giving the wearer freer range of motion and a garment that has a longer lifespan. Fully canvassed suits are of the highest quality. A lot more hours go into creating this garment which drives the cost higher than our half canvassed suits.
