A fine suit is far more that just the cornerstone of a good wardrobe. A beautiful suit shows the world how you see yourself and, more importantly, how you want the world to see you.
The right suit, quite simply, tells the world who you are.
Since 1983, we’ve been helping men who understand style find the right suits at the right price. Our wide selection – including fully canvassed and madetomeasure suits from Brioni and Hickey Freeman – is made with super 100 to super 150 Italian woolens, and we carry sizes 34 short to 46 short and 36 regular to 52 regular. Our expert staff knows fabric, construction and craftsmanship. Our legendary inhouse tailor Marino – who has been with us since 1986 – is committed to every nuance of a flawless fit. Because as Forbes Magazine recently said, “A well-made suit is not just a fashion statement. Suits should be seen as investment pieces.”
In the old days, a suit jacket’s foundation was made of horsehair canvas sewn between the lining and cloth shell. The canvas would allow the suit fabric to drape properly and take the body’s shape, thereby creating an excellent fit.
Today’s canvassed jackets use a blend of horsehair and wool (or sometimes camel) to create a middle structural layer that spans the front panels and lapels of a jacket, which is then loosely handstitched to the fabric. The result is a garment that moves with you, breathes well, drapes more naturally and conforms to the body.
Cheaper suits use a glued – or ‘fused’ – method, which has a more stiff and lifeless look. The fabric also tends to ‘bubble’ and deteriorate with repeated drycleanings.
By the way, the best way to tell the difference is by ‘The Pinch Test’. Ask your Jodamo salesman to show you. Better yet, ask to try on a full canvas suit and instantly feel the difference.
Simply put, a canvassed jacket looks much better, lasts far longer, and is the best quality of suit money can buy.
When it comes to suits, sport coats and blazers, we personify the classic traditions of superior quality, variety and customer service. It’s a proudly oldschool approach to contemporary menswear that you won’t find anyplace else. And around the world, our loyal customers agree.
Look your best. Be your best. And do it in an exquisite new suit from Jodamo.
