Museum of London highlights British menswear

December 24, 2013 (United Kingdom)

Ahead of the much awaited menswear showcase London Collections: Men, the Museum of London is offering a slice of crisp immaculate British-style tailoring through its ongoing exhibit dissecting the nuances of male fashion.
 
Titled as ‘The Anatomy of a Suit’, the event has put up a display of some historical jackets, collected from various London markets, to give the visitors an up and close view of the technical genius that went in stitching the featured suits.
 
Scheduled to run through June 1, 2014, the exhibits include a 1927 morning jacket and some double-breasted pinstripe numbers from the 1960s, both bought from Brick Lane Market, as well as a 1933 black dress suit (from Broadway Market).
 
Additionally, a range of 17th century waistcoats, medieval-era leather pieces, and punk and post-war Teddy Boys’ subculture-inspired suits have also been included in the vast exhibit, which actually is a part of the museum’s expansive collection of 22,000 fashion items.
 
Speaking on the exhibition, Fashion Curator Timothy Long commented, “Previous research into the suit has at times overlooked the fact that it is a feat of engineering, with the ability to transform the body.”
 
“Since the secrets of the suit are hidden on the inside, it’s easy to see why it’s only through deconstructing the suit jacket and turning it inside out that we can bring its technical genius to the fore,” he added.
 
Slated to take place from January 6 to 8, 2014, ‘London Collections: Men’ will showcase a range of latest Autumn/Winter-2014 lines from several well-known and young design talents.
