This event organized by its president Johnny Wichmann and his team focuses on promoting local artisanship, craft, tradition, heritage and luxury in Denmark. The preservation and innovation of the traditional craft, as well as the support of young talents with this presentation of a “Fashion Show of Creativity” aims to strengthen the local businesses and promote its products and services.
We had the pleasure to join the annual fashion show of the Danish Tailors Guild and send three full-bespoke menswear outfits down the catwalk at Moltkes Palæ in Copenhagen.
The Origin of Tweed
It is commonly thought that tweed emerged in Scotland and Ireland as a way for the farmers there to battle the chilly, damp climate that characterizes those parts. Tweed began as a hand-woven fabric. The cloth was rough, thick, and felted and the colors were muted and earthy. It was truly a working man’s cloth. As far as the name goes, there are a couple of theories.
There is a River Tweed in Scotland, and the cloth was made in the Tweed Valley, and some believe that is the origin of the word.
A more popular legend has it that the name tweed is a twist on the Scottish word for “tweel” or twill in our parlance, which is the signature weave of the fabric. It is said that in 1826, a London clerk accidentally transcribed an order to “tweel” and wrote “tweed” instead, and from there the name came into use. Whatever the origin, tweed is a rugged fabric, resistant to wind and water with excellent insulating properties. Read the full article here.

This suit was ordered by a Gentleman in need for a lightweight wardrobe.
We selected a beautiful fabric from the Italian supplier Ermenegildo Zegna and decided to go for a rather unusual but showstopper lining from supplier Lear&Browne.
For customers wearing a bigger size I always suggest to make trousers with braces and a slightly higher waist. The coat has a classic fit with a peak lapel.

I love working with soft leather. This Style is cut from Lamb Nappa Skins dyed in a dramatic dark mulled wine. The leather has a beautiful silky shine and the hand-feel of the skin is not too soft to create a stylish Jacket with topstitched seams, peak lapel and a half-circle back piece. It’s a strong look – too strong for you?
It has been a pleasure to create this coat. The fit is comfortable, the style straight cut with enough ease and some subtle details such as the top stiched seams, the shaped pockets and the contrast corduroy fabric for the under collar and the backing for the pockets and back belt. Do you like it?
It was a pleasure and quite a challenge to make this women’s jacket. The checked fabric needed extra attention when it comes to cutting and then assembling the pieces because we aim to perfectly match the checks as a sign of our high quality workmanship.

A classic shaped women’s jacket cut from a wool, silk and linen blend cloth from Scabal with patched pouch-pockets. Big oval shaped horn buttons at the open sleeve vent and front closure accentuate the x-shape silhouette.
And on this jacket, I decided to go for bound buttonholes – trés haute-couture!
