2009 A/W SARTORIAL CAPSULE COLLECTION WOOL SUIT WITH GOLDEN LINING
"The collection’s ‘Sartorial’ element: a family of garments easily identified by the curved darts used on the front of coats and suits or by the golden lining, featuring the Maison’s eponymous embroidery."
Very rare suit from short lived Sartorial line from MMM (only three seasons 08AW, 09SS and 09AW). That's the highest quality garment that was produced by the house. Size IT48, fits true to size. Regular, relaxed fit. Made in Italy. Excellent condition. RRP 3000$.
Blazer measurements: shoulder to shoulder: 45cm, arm pit to arm pit: 52cm, sleeves: 67cm, back length: 76cm Pants measurements: waist: 86cm, hem: 21cm, inseam: 79cm + 4cm to let out.
Excerpt from Men's Vogue 2008: "Now, for the first time, the words "Maison Martin Margiela" will be stitched in gold embroidery into 12 items in a capsule line, Sartorial, which is launching this summer under the "14" umbrella. The idea is to resuscitate vanishing old-world techniques — veteran tailors were brought in to expand the capabilities of cutters and sewers. Sartorial's suit jackets contain real horsehair so they can better hold their shapes, buttons are hand-stitched, and the linings — piped and bearing a tidy selection of pockets — could almost be worn facing out. You have to shell out for this artistry, of course: Topcoats and suits run upward of $3,000, payable to Barneys New York or the Margiela boutiques in New York and L.A., the only spots in the U.S. where the clothes will be sold."
