In today's edition of Well Suited, we're taking a closer look at an E. Tautz suit that looks and feels like springtime.
Given that the tagline for E. Tautz is "The uniform for a life less ordinary," it's no surprise that Patrick Grant, the brand's founder and designer, likes to experiment with the suits he sends down the runway each season, like the one pictured here from the Spring 2014 collection.
"It's all about celebrating the lives of interesting men who aren't constrained by the normal stuff," the designer told us. "I'm not a snob about clothes. I'm typically Scottish and Episcopalian and cautious with money—neither a borrower nor a lender be. I actually don't care how people dress. I just want people to be interesting."
Exceptional fit and tailoring come standard in Grant's work at E. Tautz, even in some of his more colorful pieces, like fluorescent tuxedo jackets, kimonos with abstract floral prints, and silk espadrilles paired with black socks. This wool-and-mohair number feels fresh for spring, especially when worn over a bright pink shirt.
