Frank Leder Patches Together a 3-Piece Fit Using Deadstock Tweeds
Frank Leder uses some wild fabrics—three years ago, I’m 98 percent sure he used upholstery intended for car floors to make a jacket with charcoal toggles—but the dude outdid himself on this three-piece set.
Comprised of a shirt, pants and a two-button blazer, Leder did each one in a dizzying array of deadstock tweed fabrics that he’s been stashing and using over the course of his label’s 18 years, and the result is what I assume would happen if four Dartmouth professors and Sherlock Holmes formed a Megazord.
Made entirely in Germany, the pants come in a straight leg fit with a button fly, slanted front pockets and patch pockets at the back; the blazer has notched lapels and patch pockets at the front and the shirt is minimally outfitted with a plain point collar and a patch pocket at the chest.
Even better? It’s all on sale. If you’re gonna do tweed, you might as well do tweed.
