A Better Look at E. Tautz AW09

Mar 17th, 2009 | Categories: England, Savile Row, Style | by Michael Williams

In January I covered the re-launch of the storied British label E. Tautz, but it was not until recently that the photos of the clothing became available. The collection is the perfect assemblage of “English clothes,” wonderfully crafted tailored items, knits, shirtings, leather goods and accessories, nearly all of it made in Britain. In fact, the tailored clothing is made by the same cutters at Norton & Sons, Tautz’ parent. I was lucky enough to meet with Norton’s director Mr. Patrick Grant during New York Fashion Week and saw the range first hand. I can attest to the quality and artisanship of the collection. Personally, there hasn’t been a line of clothing this sought-after in a long long while. See images from the AW09 E. Tautz range after the jump and learn more about the AW09 launch here.

    Goodness. I haven’t been this excited about a line in a long time. Notice the shoulders.

    Damn, you beat me to the punch on posting these first. However, I was fortunate enough to spend two hours in Patrick Grant’s company last Friday and able to marvel at the collection up close and personal. As soon as I’ve sat down and transcribed the conversation I will let you know but it should certainly make for an interesting read.

    Can you buy their clothes online?

    Damned nice suits. The Double Breasted has button holes at each lapel as it should. Something American and Italian designers never do.

    The SB has that beautiful button hole at the extreme slant. Very Anderson & Sheppard while the cut is clean and Huntsman like. More structured than A&S but not too much. Those buttons are beautiful. So unique to English suiting. Purple Label insists on shiny black.

    So, I’m wondering if the trousers are side tab, the jacket cuffs have working buttons and are side vented (they better be) and what these goods cost?

    Tintin, I’ve got a Canali DB suit with buttonholes on each lapel, and I’ve got a US-made Ralph Lauren “signature” line suit (the precursor to Purple Label) that has a buttonhole on each lapel, too. However, they are a rare bird.

    Is that Luis Carruthers? My God, he’s looking worse than he did in that double breasted Ermenegildo Zegna nightmare I saw him in at Crayons last Thursday.
