THE HUME 2
AN Iconic siluette, SIMPLIFIED
The pinnacle of our evening wear collection, the Cream Hume is a half canvas, softly tailored evening or wedding jacket, constructed from a blended wool fabric in an oversized hounds tooth weave.
We believe that fabrics in lighter tones can look flat and dull if not combined with an interesting texture. The Cream Hume was born out of this method of thinking, boasting a raised surface designed to offset the tone of the cloth.
Occasionally referred to as Dogs tooth or Hounds Tooth Check; The weave used for this piece is a raised, staggered twill weave made up of complex interlocking threads. A diagonal check pattern is created, designed to create visual interest as well as a soft hand feel.
With such a dynamic cloth being used for this garment, the design process was undoubtedly one of subtle detailing intended only to compliment the fabric, not compete with it. A shawl lapel in a moderate 8cm width is used on this piece. Pockets are jetted with no flaps and only a single button is included at the front. These subtle features reflect an attitude towards modern minimalism and make for a clean, sharp, yet unique garment.
A perfect option for a traditional wedding or formal evening celebration, this garment speaks for itself and should only be paired with classic, understated accessories. Look for a concealed placket dress shirt rather than a studded option. Keep the shoes black and match with a black silk bow tie. Black wool trousers balance the tone of the jacket nicely, while trousers in a complimentary cream or white tone can further enhance the personality of the piece.
The HUME in Cream Hounds tooth Jacquard is available made to measure and requires 3 weeks to construct.
