The Rake Tailored Garments: IT'S TIME TO LOOSEN UP
Reconciling the once disparate qualities of immaculate style and ease of movement, The Rake Tailored Garments in collaboration with Vitale Barberis Canonico, are ultra-sharp clothes offering unparalleled comfort. Launching very soon, here is a preview to ignite the excitement.
Welcome to The Rake Tailored Garments, a project that embraces our desire for comfort without any compromise on aesthetics. A collection which defines classic elegance for the new normal. Inspired by American style icons such as Fred Astaire and Gary Cooper who wore beautiful tailoring in an effortless and casual way, The Rake has capitalized on its 12 years as the voice of authority in the bespoke arts to create a new international style that is unprecedented in accessibility and comfort. More details will be revealed soon, but here is a sneak preview of The Rake Tailored Garments, which is an extremely exciting venture.
Our cut is a hybrid of English, Italian and French tailoring techniques resulting in a new liberation in ease of wear combined with sexy, evocative, timeless style. We have spent the majority of 2020 indoors, while it is hard to generalise on how people have dressed during that time, it is clear that there has been a realignment in sartorial priority. When the 2008 crash happened, the revival of suiting placed emphasis on structure and tailoring being an extension of geometry. Today, we value beautiful silhouettes and flattering angles, but not at the expense of comfort.
At the same time we’ve worked our garments such that they display a beautiful, soft, diaphanous effect that grows more appealing the more often you wear them. The result is beautifully draping yet highly pliable suiting that is heroically styled yet as comfortable as your weekend clothes. As opposed to the majority of overly fitted clothing, our garments actually look better the more items you put in their pockets. They are conceived for men working, living and moving through real life at a fast-paced trajectory. Finally our garments are carefully constructed in one of the best factories in Puglia, Italy, using fabrics from the very finest cloth mills such as Vitale Barberis Canonico so they will only grow better with age. On top of that, there seems to be very little consideration for value within the market and we have never felt that to be right. The customer has been lured by the label and apart from that the justification for the high price point is hard to pin down. Classic style therefore becomes inaccessible to the community of sartorially dedicated who understand more than anyone else how clothes like these bring value on a spiritual level, not just an aesthetic one.
