Poszetka Team: Winter MTM Commissions
Our team - Gabrysia, Beniamin, Mateusz, Paweł, Piotr and Tomek - presents their latest MTM pieces, commissioned by them this season.
All suits, jackets and trousers presented below were made using our custom tailoring service available in our showroom in Katowice - you can read more about it here.
gray striped suit/Finitura Felice/wool & cashmere
This is my first custom made suit ever. I based it off a masculine pattern, so I wanted it to be simple - both in proportions and in the choice of cloth. My styling idea involves extravagant, feminine accessories, hence the restraint of the suit itself.
three-piece navy striped suit/Finitura Felice/wool & cashmere
With my second commission, I had the idea of a power suit in mind - a kind of outfit-weapon that would give me self-confidence when I needed it. Hence the stripe (again), but with added waistcoat and in the interesting shade of blue. A variation on the masculine clothing, drawing from menswear traditions, but in a feminine and subtle way. It's still me, but strong and fearless!
gun club check sportcoat/Lovat/tweed
This jacket is really warm - invaluable virtue for someone who is cold most of the year! - so it can be used as a light jacket in spring and autumn. I wear it almost exclusively with jeans (a perfect everyday set that allows you to sneak in a sportcoat for any occasion), but sometimes I also wear it in a more elegant company: with flannel trousers and a tie.
charcoal striped suit/Alfred Brown/heavy worsted wool
It's undoubtedly a formal suit, but also one that allows me a huge scope for experimentation. This is mainly due to the details: single-breasted cut, two-and-a-half-button fastening, notch lapels, trousers with belt loops and a matte, slightly rough finishing of the fabric. It is very difficult to get such a striped suit off the rack!
three-piece midnight suit/Magee/Donegal Tweed
It's a love story - I fell in love with this fabric at first sight. I didn't think about what, when or why; but I knew I wanted the whole suit made out if it. In my opinion, Donegal Tweed always looks good, but THIS ONE (all kinds of colors splattered as dots on a dark, almost black background) is the highest form of beauty/perfection - I don't know what else to call it. Oh, it turned out there was enough fabric for a waistcoat also, so I have the option of a formal winter suit (kinda) if needed.
gray striped suit/Takisada Nagoya/wool hopsack “vintage”
And what about the stripes? I've never had a striped suit before, so think I finally had to try it... What ultimately convinced me was the fabric: extremely springy wool with an unbelievable dry hand, originating in Japan, completely different from the European fabrics we usually deal with. I don't intend to make it my power suit, you'll rather see me in a T-shirt and sneakers!
navy blue striped suit/Drago/130s wool
There is always room in my wardrobe for another tweed or another stripe. This time it turned out to be a stripe, but a bit less typical, low contrast one. From a distance it looks modest, almost like an ordinary navy blue suit, but only up close it shows its character - exactly the way I like it.
navy blazer/Takisada Nagoya/wool hopsack “vintage”
Made as a cloth tester; equipped in detail with everything you could see in our last RTW collection: light construction, patch pockets, two-and-a-half-button fastening. The quintessence of Poszetka style and our approach to the clothes. This fabric is truly indestructible - and I do my best to give it a hard time!
gray suit/Alfred Brown/wool hopsack
Why such a gray classic? Perhaps because I have already collected an excessive amount of stripes, being in love with them... but the truth is that a gray suit is more than just business and formal occasions. Most often I wear just the jacket, combined with dark, raw jeans and a turtleneck - but if needed, that might easily be transformed into a more formal outfit when worn with matching trousers. What captivated me most about the fabric was its rough feel and weight, which makes this suit match both my casual style and shantung/wool challis ties that I like to wear from time to time.
grayish-green suit/Drago/cotton-wool corduroy
The idea of commissioning this suit popped up while looking at Drago’s cloth selection at Milano Unica. It's rare to find corduroy with this composition (cotton + wool) - this one comes from their more expensive Skyfall fabric line and I have to admit that you can feel the difference from the first touch. From the rich color card, I chose a non-obvious (isn't that what custom tailoring is all about?!) grayish-green pastel that was neighbouring the beige which is said to be chosen by Brunello Cucinelli.
herringbone sportcoat/Bottoli/wool & cashmere
This is also the Milano Unica story - Bottoli weaving mill was my last meeting at the fair and probably the greatest discovery there; a family company that specializes in undyed wool, which is what us, cloth-crazy guys like the most. Personally, I chose a wide herringbone jacketing, a kind of cloth which I didn't have in my wardrobe yet. The distinctive feature of this design was the color - or rather a method that was used to achieve it: the yarn had been dyed with COFFEE. Now that’s something special!
Our MTM tailoring service includes hundreds of fabrics from several selected manufacturers. The personalization allows for a wide range of modifications to the cut and the details. The process requires 3 meetings (selecting fabric and taking measurements, fitting, collection) and takes up to approx. 6 weeks. More information can be found here.
For those based abroad, we also offer basic MTO service that does not require a visit to Katowice and can be done fully remotely - contact us for more details.
