Fairclough & Co.

The Corner Office

Philip Berry

Fourteen Hundred Square feet, that's what we're working with around here. Five hundred of that occupying dressing rooms, offices, back room and restroom. Consequently, space is a commodity around here and the lack there of forces us to be resourceful. So when I expressed interest in having, not necessarily an office, but a space or surface to work on, a major light bulb went off in Paul Haddock's mind. "Why not the storage closet?" he asked. I admit I had a hard time envisioning it, but we began the transformation nevertheless. The end result was a cozy and surprisingly efficient office space for me. Two of the four walls are upholstered with a tan plaid with a touch of coral and green, the other two walls are exposed brick painted white. Surrounded by priceless photographs and my Grandfather's, the late Jake Berry, desk, I find myself in here most of the day. Although it's a little tight with two people, come by and check it out!

Cuffed Pants Are Back, Says the Wall Street Journal

LK

Perhaps. But here at Fairclough, we know that the cuff never really left. In the past few years, the Journal explains, a classic, creased cuff has been making a comeback in popularity after previously falling out of preference in the world of menswear.

The cuffed pant has always been a mainstay of fundamental Fairclough style. A carefully-done cuff provides a tidy finish that hints, rather than announces, that a garment has been tailored with thought. This indisputably complete detail is precisely the reason that Fairclough customers have continued to wear the properly-cuffed pant so well over the years.

So, will the "return" of the pant cuff really mark a "revival of American tailoring" in mainstream menswear? That yet remains to be seen, but one thing's for sure: as menswear traditionalists, we'll be the first to welcome it back.
