CHARLES TYRWHITT'S
SUPERIOR SUITS

Charles Tyrwhitt suits are made to the same exacting standards as our shirts - and feature the superb fabrics and thoughtful details you’d expect from the most talented of tailors. Read on to learn the finer details and see what our suits have to offer.

IF THE SUIT FITS…

BUILT TO LAST


CANVAS CONSTRUCTION

Many of our suits employ a canvas or half-canvas construction, which involves a piece of canvas interlining in the chest. This brings your suit jacket to life, adding extra support and structure for a sharp look, and moulding to your shape over time for an even better fit.


JUST NEED TO VENT

The vents at the back of your jacket hem ensure you can always move freely. Twin back vents are typically British in style, and give ultimate movement and allow for a slimmer fit.


THE FINER DETAILS

With the expertise of globally renowned British and Italian mills, we honour our heritage of Jermyn Street tailoring with details like fully working cuffs, or stalk loops for flowers on our suit jackets. Our buttons are made from all-natural, hard-wearing corozo nut and trouser hems are taped to ensure they stay sharp over time.


WHAT'S IN A STITCH?

Quite a lot, actually. All of our suit jackets come complete with AMF stitching, which is carefully applied to keep the jacket's interlining in place. It also prevents the lapels from rolling and gives your look a cleaner finish.

THE WONDERS OF WOOL

Cut and fabric go hand in hand to create a beautiful suit; whichever style you choose, we’ve chosen the best material to match. 

'Super' numbers refer to the fineness of the yarn used in the cloth. The higher the yarn count, the softer the fabric. In Tyrwhitt suits you'll find fabrics from Super 100s to 130s, for a truly luxurious feel. 

We also use Merino wool in our suits for softness and its natural performance qualities. The fine fibres are hard-wearing and soft to the touch, and makes for an all natural, sustainable choice. Merino also stands up to adverse weather, keeping you warm when it’s cold and cooling you when it’s too hot. 

IT'S ALL IN THE WEAVE


TWILL

Our hardest working business suits are made using a twill weave - woven with a diagonal appearance. It's robust, less prone to creases, and drapes beautifully.


BIRD’S EYE

An understated weave that looks plain from a distance but up close you’ll notice an intricate dot and diamond pattern, resembling a bird’s eye. The twisted contrast yarns are woven to create a textured fabric with excellent crease-recovery, perfect for our Travel suits.


HERRINGBONE

So called because of its resemblance to a fish skeleton, herringbone weave produces a gentle zig-zag pattern. Since it's thicker than most weaves, you'll often find it in rustic tweed suits and winter tailoring.


PLAIN WEAVE

The most popular textile weave, plain weave shows a simple criss-cross pattern. It's strong, hard-wearing, and breathable, and has the benefit of showing off particularly fine colours.


SHARKSKIN WEAVE

Two-tone sharkskin cloth was a particular favourite for suits in the 1950s and 60s, and is still beloved today. Made by weaving two different yarns together, it has a textured appearance and a smooth sheen.
