Re: Anthony Sinclair Special Order Suit

Nicely done BrackleyBond.  I received my AS suits a few days ago from Mason & Sons ---- took advantage of their end of season sale.  As they had my measurements, they ensured the items were altered to fit me.  Great folks and love their suits, even more than TF suits.

So I received this yesterday, had been saving for a while and will be wearing the jacket and waistcoat to my wedding in August with a pair of grey striped morning trousers.

This is based on the black herringbone suit in SPECTRE.

The material is also black herringbone,  100's super 140's Worsted from  Holland & Sherry.

The jacket is a full canvas, with wide peak lapels, 5 button cuff, ticket pocket, but unlike the SPECTRE suit has a double vent.

The waistcoat, has 4 pockets and 6 buttons.

The trousers, have no cuffs, and side adjusters.

I'm very happy with this suit, it feels so soft like silk, probably be a while before I can get another one but really happy with this one!

I met with David Mason to get an Anthony Sinclair Special Order suit, and it is truly magnificent. For those who want something more like Connery's suits than the Anthony Sinclair ready-to-wear suits, the Special Order programme can do that. You can get the narrower lapels, lower button stance and pleated trousers. I was fairly happy with the style of the ready-to-wear suits and only made my suits more like Connery's by lowering the button stance, but I didn't make it as low as Connery's. I raised the trouser rise so the jacket and trousers harmonise better with each other, but it's debatable whether that counts as changing the style or just changing the fit.

My suit was inspired by Sean Connery’s blue button one suit in You Only Live Twice, Roger Moore’s marine blue suit in The Man with the Golden Gun and Daniel Craig’s blue sharkskin suit in Spectre. Here's the suit:

With the blue cocktail cuff shirt and burgundy tie, I was trying to do the Moore look. But the grenadine weave of the tie brings in the Connery aspect.

Nice work Harris, Matt and all! Matt, you finally have some decent clothes to wear to Spy Con!  ajb007/lol

For a made-to-measure suit without any alterations, it fits superbly. I was able to get the more traditional fit I wanted (about the same as Connery's Thunderball suits), but for those who like Craig's too-tight fits it can be done as well. My only concern is that the 8 oz cloth is too light. I would recommend getting something a bit heavier, such as the standard 9 oz cloth, but I love the look of this cloth. The suit overall feels so light and comfortable, as if I'm not wearing anything. I feel that being lightweight captures the essence of Connery's (and the literary Bond's) suits, though British tailors never came close to making something this light in the 1960s. Though I took these photos outside in January in New York, it really needs an overcoat outside. I think that when the summer comes, I'll really appreciate how light the suit is. Because it is Super 110s, it won't wrinkle as much or be as delicate as the more common Super 130s-Super 150s lightweight cloths.

I wrote a very detailed review of the suit with more photos on my blog:

I highly recommend anyone getting an Anthony Sinclair ready-to-wear suit to upgrade to the Special Order, if anything to make it even more like Connery's suits than I made mine.
