For sale here is a very rare tonic herringbone bespoke Savile row suit by John Lester with working cuff and hand sewing. The main feature of the suit however is the cloth. This was a popular cloth in the 1960's for a town and country suit and we used to see lots of them, this however is the first we've had for several years now and was made in 1997. The cloth has a tonic quality created by the use of an orange base with a green weave as image 7 attempts to show.
