Last week I stopped by the Beckett & Robb showroom in San Francisco to say hello and check out their newest items – a small run or ready-to-wear blazers. As my readers may recall, Beckett & Robb specializes in made-to-measure tailored clothing; you can read about the suit I purchased here. This run of blazers is made to the same standards as their MTM offerings, but are available in standard sizes (38R-44R). The pricepoint is good, considering the material and construction quality – $595, except for one made of Loro Piana fabric that is priced at $695. The rest are made of Vitale Barberis Canonico fabric.
The four offerings in the San Francisco shop are all great Fall/Winter jackets – a brown/tan herringbone, navy brushed donegal tweed, navy flannel windowpane, and a Loro Piana grey flannel. The latter two are unstructured and feature patch pockets, while the first two feature a more traditional half-canvas construction. They are all fabricated at their made-to-measure facility in Portugal. I tried a few on, and they look quite nice. They do run on the slim side; I found that a 38R would probably work well for me with just a small amount of tailoring.
Each of Beckett & Robb’s stores has a slightly different selection available, so pop in to see if there’s anything that you would like. And if you’re in the San Francisco store, be sure to say hi to Alan and Derek for me!
