Similar to the jacket, the trousers are in a quality bracket that normally would enhance the cost they currently find
themselves at. It is a testament to Mr Kraft that he has been able to produce expertly tailored garments, using the
finest fabrics and yet his pricing of the pieces are well-below similar garments of equal quality in the market. The
navy linen signature trousers are no different and are a fine example of this unthinkable value to the customer. The
trousers are made using old-fashioned techniques from Irish linen which is beautifully rich to the touch, and
possesses a wonderful balance of drape, breathability and comfort and the flat-fronted design creates a clean and
elegant look in the upper half of the trouser. The style also features side adjusters whilst the trousers are
unlined for ease of movement. The matching waistcoat, which is sold separately is again made from exclusive Irish
linen. It features a stunning shawl lapel and working buttons, making it an incredibly elegant waistcoat when
paired, either with signature trousers or jacket, or for a more casual look the ivory linen trousers from the
previous launch of Alexander Kraft
The highly anticipated first designs of footwear in the collection are in the form of velvet slippers. They’re
exclusively made by the world-renowned slipper purveyor Stubbs & Wootton (New York &
Palm Beach). Totally unique, two of the designs are devoted to Mr Kraft’s beloved dog Bertie. Artistically
embroidered with a portrait of Bertie in an understated dark blue, the velvet slippers are extremely smart.
Exquisite and yet of a substantial proportion for a slipper, it means they can be worn inside and outside and
perfectly complement the other pieces in “Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo.” The two remaining designs are both
embroidered, with one being the official logo of “Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo”, and the other being a very suave
design of owner and dog embroidered on separate shoes with a clever addition of an adjoining lead to each shoe if
you stand with them together.
A true blazer is defined by its very dark blue colour, an absence of pattern, and pristine cut. The Alexander Kraft
double-breasted New Zealand wool blazer conforms to the highest credentials of any classic navy blazer, a sumptuous
blue, pristine cut, military bearing and an air of almost regal sophistication about it.
Following the Savile Row tradition, the jacket has roped shoulders and is cut close to the chest with a timeless
medium-width lapel; for a sophisticated and yet contemporary look. Furthermore, this elegant double-breasted blazer
has been very much made in the Alexander Kraft style, which makes it very compatible with the other garments in his
collection; especially with either his navy linen flat-fronted trousers or ivory linen trousers which would match
perfectly with the embroidered slippers as footwear.
The Prince of Wales check has always had a place in the wardrobe of the well-dressed. The Duke of Windsor was
regularly seen in the check. He spent a large part of his later life in exile in Paris and on the French Riviera
with the smart set. With this in mind, also included in the latest Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo collection is a brown
and white Prince-of-Wales check linen jacket and waistcoat. The check is slightly paler than usual and with its
breathability of the quality of the linen both the jacket and the waistcoat couldn’t be more suited the Riviera
