This suit was made by Bernard Weatherill during the British fashion boom of the 1960s and is a good example of the styles of that period. The repetition of curved lines in flapped pockets, cuffs, collar and lapels, along with unusual covered buttons, show a dapper and stylish attention to detail. Bernard Weatherill was a men's tailoring and equestrian dress-maker, established in Savile Row in 1912. Today, the company retains a host of Royal Appointments.
