We dressed Bryan Ferry for his current tour, and he was kind enough to invite us along to see him in concert in London wearing the suits. He had six made in total, in navy and black silk.
Silk is a very hard material to work with, both because it is tricky to cut and because it is easy to spoil. That meant we had to get the suits right first time, and some were just made straight off in order to be ready. Silk isn’t particularly practical to perform in, as it doesn’t breathe very well, but the suits certainly looked good on stage.
He was also kind enough to credit us in the programme for the concert, which we weren’t expecting.
