The label has been featured before, but not these 1960s-style double-breasted suits at Adam of London.
You probably know all about Adam of London. If you don’t, I did a small feature on the label and retailer some months back. But to sum up, ‘Adam’ is Shener Adam, a man who has been in the clothes business since the 1960s and who, by the age of just 19, was supplying clothing to the likes of Lord John, Take 6 and John Stephen.
By 1976 he was running the Adam of London label ahead of working as a menswear consultant. The label was brought back some years later as a retail store selling suits and shirts in its store in the Portobello Green Arcade in West London, as well as online.
If you want something with a classic/1960s look off the peg, it’s a store that is well worth investigating. Even more so now with the arrival of their double-breasted suits.
Not something you see a lot of these days, especially when it comes to off the peg. In fact, it has taken Adam of London a significant amount of time to get this one ‘right’ ahead of offering it for sale. This isn’t an overnight success, it’s a design that has taken a lot of hours and work.
The finished double-breasted suit is available in the three finishes you see here, produced in all wool and with the six-button front, three flap pockets, and of course, the top pocket too.
More details on the site or pop into the store if you have chance to look at each one close-up. The suits are priced from £375 depending on the one you go for.
