Edward Sexton: Cut from rockstar cloth

Edward Sexton’s tailoring career has spanned over six decades. He’s not showing any signs of slowing down soon, with a broad collection of signature and contemporary trousers, suits, blazers and shirts, which are now offered on The Rake to pre-order.

Edward Sexton along with his former business partner Tommy Nutter changed tailoring folklore on Savile Row for the greater good. Sexton’s clothes make you stand differently, with a debonair sway across the shoulder. Bold clashing patterns, architectural shoulders and elongated trouser silhouettes. Sexton once said that: “We created a style that was longer than average, waisted and flared. The roped shoulders were very narrow but square, with an extraordinarily wide lapel – a peak double-breasted shape lapel on our single breast jackets, which was very rare for that time.”
