STYLE No. BKT50 – ‘FULL CANVAS TUXEDO JACKET’ 

FULL CANVAS TAILORING: 
Our BkT50 jackets are tailored with a fully canvassed construction – a time-honored tradition of meticulously sewing horse hair canvas into the front section of the jacket by hand. This technique provides a more natural, elegant drape on the body, which only improves over time as it breaks in and forms to your individual shape – not unlike a great pair of jeans. Most suiting manufacturers replaced this slow and expensive method last century with fused construction, which involves sandwiching a synthetic material between the layers of fabric and adding heat to “glue” the suit together. This time-saving method has become common practice with today’s mass-produced suits, but results in a jacket that will degrade quickly with age, and will never have the soft, organic drape over the body that a fully canvassed jacket can offer.

FIT: 
The BkT50 tuxedo features a 1-button jacket with a narrow peaked lapel trimmed in contrasting black silk grosgrain. The fit is the same as our BkT50 suit jacket: slim, with narrow shoulders, a moderately short jacket and sleeve, and a clean line that sits close to the body.The BkT50 suit is our signature suiting silhouette, known for being both modern and timeless.
