Les Smokings - Hayward: Drafting In

Photograph: Zoe Hitchen

A shot of Ritchie Charlton in action, using Bobby's 'block' as a basis to draft a new tuxedo jacket pattern. As Ritchie outlined mere moments ago on our live stream, if you were to order your own version of this piece from Hayward it would notch up slightly more expensive than the standard tailored suit - the silk-satin across the lapels and high-quality wool of an evening suit obviously clocking in a little above your standard wool gabardine (although I doubt a bespoke tailored suit could ever be described as standard).
