Jackson Tailors - tailors suit makati
What differentiates the Morning suit to a tailcoat?
Well basically the morning coat doesn't have a vent unlike the coat tail.
And 2018 is bringing back morning tails. I am loving the different styles. And as you know the mens formals rarely evolves.
But you see what they did is mix and matched colors, fabrics, fabric patterns. Quite ingenious.
Although it still has the same cut and ultimately same lapel. Well its basically still the same as the time it was designed by the British in the Edwardian era.
And I know you guys are already rolling your eyes on the thought of wearing one.
Ironically Morning suits are called the Morning Dress. Before judging the morning dress, listen up first especially to our soon to be wed subscribers or watchers.
The Morning Suit or dress or coat is a gentleman's traditional garment for weddings, formal memorial services, some official functions and formal daytime events.
It is the most appropriate formal wear for a Groom. And not the regular suit or tux.
Again let me reiterate that, this is the most appropriate Groom's outfit. Not a suit or a tux.
It was designed for nineteenth century gentlemen who rode horses in the morning with a cutaway front. It evolved from the casual frock to formal wear. So you see?, british formal wear also leaves room for improvements. Although it hasnt for a long time since there was no need for it.
And I know you guys are shaking your head in disagreement.
Because you see so much that needs revamping, upgrading and modernizing. So it can be a challenge for us.
But of course we did it once again. Jeffrey Chu was able to reshape the penguin suit with just about the right amount of darting in the coat that the shape was not hidden but accentuated especially with the waistcoat.
So casual Fridays is not always the way to get a waist. With a proper tailor. You really can really update and improve on the oldy moldy.
And with that we move on to the do's and donts of the Morning Coat.
Just a reminder. These are the traditional rules and just like with the tux, carefully bend it. Carefully.
Yes ….leave the redesign to Jeffrey Chu.
Because tradition is tradition and with the proper designer you can keep the traditions and still revolutionize.
Lets Start with the DO’s
Now onto the DO NOT’s
But again since it's evolution from the casual frock to a morning dress, well the morning suit is already changing once more.
Well thats it for now kiidzs and dudes.
And for our future menswear designers, this is the challenge for us. How to evolve the barong into a morning suit. Since we now know it came from a casual frock.
