SAS - (Swiss Army Suit)

..
We were recently asked to endulge on a project by a customer of ours that he had been thinking about for some time.

The idea was that of a multi-functional suit, ie. in his words a "Swiss Army Suit"...

The reason for this unusual but great idea was to cut down on the number of things that he needed to pack for trips, whilst still wanting a gulf between formal and casual wear.
..
The end result was a 3-piece Suit which could be worn with either the waistcoat or not, and a jacket with inter-changeable buttons to transform it from a suit jacket to blazer or to a more relaxed sports jacket, with Mother of Pearl buttons.
..
Judge for yourself the contrast in outfits by changing the buttons and accessories.

  1. The man should be publically stoned for such an idea...but his tailor must be commended on the its fine execution. This idea is quite functional given a single jacket can handle both formal/business functions and the more causal/semi-formal settings more appropriate for he blazer and odd trouser...sans vest
