HOUSE STYLE: THE ENGLISH DRAPE CUT. Anderson & Sheppards rich history as a Savile row tailor goes back to 1906, and at the core of that story is the English Drape cut: a now-classic suiting silhouette, that surfaced as a more comfortable alternative to the rigid constraints of military dress early in the 20th century. The appeal of the English Drape is neatly illustrated by one of Savile Rows most enduring anecdotes. Fred Astaire, when visiting Anderson & Sheppard, would dance around the fitting room with one eye on the surrounding mirrors, monitoring how his suit was responding to his movement and checking that the coat remained flush against his neck. Many decades later, Anderson & Sheppard remains the Savile row tailor of the English Drape and our garments are still made in such a way that the wearers movement has minimal impact on how the jacket behaves.Characteristic features of English Drape include a small, high armhole with additional fullness given instead through the sleeve head, a natural shoulder line and a full chest with a distinctive vertical drape. These elements, and the way the collar sits on the back of the neck, allow for the arm to move freely, but with the jacket always staying doggedly in situ. The shoulders, meanwhile, are soft and natural with minimal padding, ensuring a clean, rounded line. And the use of an extremely light canvas (the layer between a Jackets lining and its main fabric) gives a less-structured, more- yielding and relaxed look. Material: No material tag; feels like wool. Box pleat in center back with "1/2 belt" panel below at waistline. Lining: Full in jacket & Pants lined to just above the ankle. Adjustable side tabs at waist.
