Outfitted for Autumn by E. Tautz

Sep 2nd, 2010 | Categories: Clothing, England, Savile Row | by Michael Williams

If you aren’t up on the house of E. Tautz and the man behind the collection Mr. Patrick Grant, you are missing out. I first wrote about the resurrection of the label in January of 2009 and am delighted to see the line available in the U.S. for the first time at Barneys.

A few months ago Patrick held a trunk show in New York which gave me a chance to touch and feel the fall collection in person. I can attest to the amazing quality of make and material. Being one who appreciates craft (not to mention English tailoring) I enjoy the emphasis that Tautz has put on the range being sourced and sewn in Britain. Accordingly, the tailored clothing is done by the same craftsman that make the bespoke goods at Norton & Sons (Tautz’s mother label).

After seeing the autumn 2010 collection (with thanks to the folks at Barneys for letting me come up and ask lots of questions) I’m thinking of selling my new SLS and buying every beautiful little piece. See E. Tautz for yourself — the collection is on the first floor of the men’s section at Barneys NYC flagship. Take the 60th Street entrance and walk straight, you can’t miss it.

    I like how the herringbone matches up on the shoulders

    Gorgeous fabrics. But I’m a little worried about the peaked lapels. They don’t look good on slim men with skinny necks — like me. I’m hoping that narrow, notched lapels stay in style for a few more years…

    Looks really great,

    I’d be willing to bet the price points are fair and reasonable as well. From what I know about the history of the brand, their products have always been reflective of their high quality, but not inflated for the sake of the “label”.

    Do you have any ballpark indications on prices?

    These are exquisite. I can feel the heft, the weight, the texture…..coming right through my aging iMac g5 screen.
