Kipper Original: The Fully Canvassed Suit

Kipper Clothiers believes in fully canvassing your suits — the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Canvassed Jackets:
Traditionally, suits were constructed with a layer of horsehair canvas underneath the wool fabric shell. This canvas holds the shape of the suit and keeps it from sagging or deforming, much like the foundation of a house keeps it upright. The canvas is cut to the jacket’s shape, then the wool is stitched to the canvas. Over time, as you wear the jacket, the canvas conforms to your body’s shape, creating an excellent fit.The canvas lining allows the suit fabric to drape naturally, allowing a clean, well put-together look.

Fused Jackets
Many suit manufacturers, as an effect of increased production, no longer use a canvas interlining in their jackets. Rather, a fusible interlining is glued to the wool shell of the suit. And while this does an adequate job of keeping a jacket’s shape, it often creates an unnatural stiffness in the jacket, making a fused jacket appear lifeless compared to a similar canvassed coat. It’s not just budget brands that construct jackets in this fashion. Many designer labels construct their suit jackets this way to save themselves money.

WIWT: Well, I haven’t done one of these in ages. But I’m still alive and well, currently halfway through my surgery rotation. 

Fun fact - if you wear a bow tie in the hospital, no less than 10 people per day will say something about it to you. 100% positive results.
