In October we had the great pleasure of working on a very quick turn around job with our friends across the road at legendary tailors, Henry Poole. They were making a coupld of jackets for Hollywood actor Jason Momoa one of which was to be a velvet smoking jacket for the ‘Dune’ London premiere. No smoking jacket would be complete without some frogging style details on it and so Momoa chose our oak leaf cuff embroidery design to adorn his jacket.
Working with the coat makers means that we can do the embroidery before the jacket is constructed which gives it that super lux finish that one comes to expect of Savile Row quality garments. The burgandy colour of the velvet brough a fun edge to this particular jacket, reflecting the wearer’s dynamic personality. What’s more is that Momoa and his team filmed the whole process of the making of the jackets, which included a visit to our studio to see the cuff embroidery in action and learn a little more about the process behind the craft.
Thanks to Daniel McDonald from Henry Poole for bringing us in on this project and Damien Bray for the film, as well of course as the man himself, Jason Momoa for wearing it so well. Be sure to check out the film in full at the top of the blog, its well worth the watch!
