Lee Marsh creates first ready-to-wear with Hainsworth

Saville Row bespoke tailor Lee Marsh has created his first-ever ready-to-wear menswear collection in collaboration with the British textile mill Hainsworth.

The capsule range has been crafted using the cloth maker’s light grey Melange Lightweight Melton, bright blue Melton and Ren Field grey fabrics.

Expressing his joy over the new associative design venture with the Yorkshire firm, the designer said, “I fell in love with Hainsworth’s fabrics when I was working for Gieves and Hawkes so I’m delighted to be collaborating with them myself for the first time. Their heritage and history closely matches the history of a Saville Row suit.”

The mill’s MD Tom Hainsworth also spoke about the collaboration in a press statement, “We met Lee at the London Textile Forum in October and he made quite an impression as he was wearing a bright blue jacket which was very similar to our bright blue Melton fabric. He is a great match for us with his fantastic training and experience as a tailor and Saville Row pedigree now behind his own label and collection.”

Slated to be launched in stores and online from September 2015 onwards, the collection includes mix-and-match pieces like a blue blazer, a green bomber jacket and a grey suit.

“Until now I’d only ever used their grey Melange Melton as an under-collar suit fabric but I had this great idea to use it to make a whole suit. It’s such a soft and moveable fabric that it’s perfect used this way. It’s also a warm fabric so it’s just right for winter wear,” the designer talked about the fabrics he used in the suit.

“I’ve designed the collection so you can wear the suit trousers with the striking blue blazer and a pair of trainers if you want to. The green bomber jacket combines the classic tailoring of a double breasted jacket with a traditional bomber. Hainsworth’s Ren Field grey fabric from their True Heritage Collection is such a lovely fabric to work with and allowed me to give the bomber the soft yet structured look I was after,” he further adds about the versatility of the materials.
