    Sastrería Serna - Irish Linen Suit

    The fittings & the final result

    Some months ago we had already talked about Agustín García Montero, Master Tailor at Sastrería Serna in Madrid. Recently I ordered a suit made from Irish linen fabric by Holland & Sherry, which I wore on the occasion of Pitti Uomo in Florence. Below are some photos of the fittings and of the final suit. According to some, the first suit a tailor makes for each client will never be the best he can make for him (if any will ever follow, I would add). In this case, I believe that Sastrería Serna has belied this cliché, given the stylistic and technical perfection of this masterpiece.

    To do a suit well and to do it beautifully do not always go together, since technical precision does not necessarily imply an aesthetic taste: I must admit that at Serna these two qualities are deep-rooted in their work, along with an open mind-set, that pushes them to listen to the needs and to the requests coming from the customers. With the before-mentioned technique, Agustín has perfectly respected the plumb of the jacket and with a masterfully made cut, he has delivered a pair of trousers that flawlessly follow the lines of my legs. The single-breasted jacket with two buttons on the front has the typical Spanish lapel - sloped and rounded - a longer second dart and a thin buttonhole with a drop. The closed sleeve head is cut at the right height, but mostly it’s rounded so as to allow the movement of the shoulders. Both front and back don’t crease in the critical points, albeit the type of fabric and the shape of my body. 

    The trousers, with side buttoning, no belt loops and double forward pleats, are as good as the ones made by the best trouser makers I have encountered so far: the forward pleats do not open up despite my wide hips and the central crease does not break despite my being bow-legged. The silhouette, moreover, is slim and this is something important since many tailors are able to make a central crese with no break just by cutting larger trousers, to the fit’s detriment. The cuffs, finally, gracefully lean on the shoes and so does the external stitching, despite my wide hips. In some days do not miss the review of a Teba jacket, the typical hunting garment from Spain, made as well by Agustín.
