Summer Tailoring

May 11, 2018

Tailoring has always been an important part of our collections at Oliver Spencer. We believe that wearing a suit shouldn’t have to be a chore; our unstructured suits are relaxed and easy to wear because of their simple cuts and high quality fabrics. They present a smart/casual look without the cost of comfortability.

Our Summer tailoring for Spring Summer 18 is no different. This year we have combined some beautiful cotton and linen fabrics with some of our classic tailored looks as well as some new, more casual styles that will be sure to be fitting for any summer event.


The Linen Theobald Suit

Named after the road, which Oliver travels down to work every day, the Theobald Jacket is our smartest offering this season. The simple details of this jacket are what make it so well loved and perfect for a summer wedding or party. It features a simple two button fastening with minimalist pockets and a tabbed button loop on the lapel for those cooler summer evenings. Shown above in Linton pink this 100% linen suit will really turn heads for all the right reasons.


The Coram Jacket Suit

After being introduced a few seasons ago, the Coram Jacket has become a staple piece of our collections and our customer’s wardrobes. Similarly to the Toms Jacket, it sits well on its own or with a matching Fishtail or Drawstring Trouser, cut here in our soft Portman seersucker fabric. This suit is the epitome of un-structured; with no wadding or padding, it drapes naturally on the wearer and can easily be worn with just a T-shirt underneath. The seersucker fabric lends itself well to travel, as well as day to day use as its slight stretch will help reduce creasing and loose cut keep you cool throughout the day.

The Cotton/Wool Theobald Suit

Appropriate 365 days of the year, this simple take on a classic style blazer compliments the cotton/wool blend of the Clarendon Navy fabric. With a soft handle and slight stretch, you will struggle to find a better mid-weight suit that gives a smart look using casual detailing and unmatchable comfort.

The Toms Jacket


The Toms Jacket is our most casual summer offering. With a contemporary cut-away lapel-less collar it sits flat across the chest allowing the wearer to dress it down with either a T-shirt or Grandad Shirt. It is a boxier cut than your traditional tailored jacket as it sits quite square through the body, which allows freedom of movement - essential for a hot summers day. Paired here with a pair of our Bray Cream organic cotton Judo Pants; it can be worn easily with a casual trouser or jeans as well as our matching loose-fitting Drawstring Trousers.
