Construction

 

Whether it is for a tailored business suit with a tight budget or a pleasure purchase where quality and tradition prevail, we offer four types of construction. All made in the same workshop, they each have in common an impeccable level of finishing, fulfilling all of the criteria for a tailored men's jacket:

Fused construction
Half canvas construction
Full canvas construction

 

Fused construction

Let's begin with the fused construction. It is ideal for office or ceremony clothing. It is the most affordable, while still offering an upscale level of finishing.

The front aspect of the jacket, from the shoulder to the bottom of the jacket, is indeed overlayed with a fused layer set in place at high temperature. Furthermore, all of the supports between the components and the pockets are also fused.

 

Half canvas construction

Thanks to its natural fabric and its sewn lapel, the half canvas construction or semi-traditional construction wears more comfortably than the fused construction. It's the best value for money. 

The unstructured construction, reserved for jackets only, is characterized by the absence of shoulder-pieces and offers a very flexible wear based upon a more supple semi-lined composition. 

 

Full canvas construction

Finally, the full canvas construction is immediately recognizable by its flexibility and its lightness. This is the one that will stay with you the longest and will showcase your fabrics' qualities the best, whether they are heavy and made to last, or lightweight as with silk. The Full canvas construction presents an exceptional method of assembling supports.

The latter are assembled  with the primary fabric by means of stitching, which allows for more flexibility between the pieces composing the jacket. Although more costly, primarily because of the manual work required, the Full canvas construction offered by Blandin & Delloye is one of the most affordable on the market providing this level of quality.

 

Patronage

 

The advisor at Blandin & Delloye takes the body measurements by tape measure. 

 

The client then tries on sample templates. The objective at this stage, fundamental for taking measurements, is to precisely define the desired cut and identify the client's posture (position of shoulders, hips, prominent shoulder-blades, bowed legs...). 

Customization

 

This is where we define together all of the characteristics of a tailored suit: primary fabric, collar shape, size of lapels, belt type,  pockets...
 

During this stage, the color elements are equally customizable (topstitching, buttonholes, lining,...). These different options guarantee that your tailored suit will perfectly meet your expectations and specifications.

Fabrics

 

We work with the best Italian and English drapers. The fabrics used are selected according to the quality of their source material (wool, mohair, silk, cashmere, cotton, linen,…) and their weaving. 

From among thousands of references we choose between 500 and 700 references that we stock in our workshop. In addition, we offer by-the-order more than 6,000 fabric references. 

 

The principle drapers with whom we work are: Vitale Barberis Canonico, Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry, Dugdale, Reda, Marlane, Loro Piana, Ermenegildo Zegna, Cacciopoli, Tolegno, Scabal, Huddersfield, Marzotto ....

Accessorizing

 

This concerns just as much the integrated details during confection (pouches, contrasting buttons) as it does the outfit accessories  (shoes, ties, bowties,...)

 

Regardless of the accessory, we have selected noble materials and production workshops which share our vision of excellence and traditional expertise.
