Suiting fabrics from the finest mills in the world styled after French and Italian clothiers and perfected over eight generations of bespoke crafting.
Fused Jacket Structures use a composite of various materials which are fused or laminated together via a heat treatment process. This stiffens the cloth slightly, and is quicker and easier to produce than canvas, but does not really provide the same properties as true canvas - therefore, on a good quality suit, the less fused material and more canvas the better.
However, the fusing process has been refined considerably with modern technology and materials - in the past there were sometimes problems with delamination, and you may have heard horror stories of suits “bubbling” over time. Thankfully, this isn’t something to worry about so much these days, and can offer a quality custom option at an affordable price.
At Kalypso Couture, we believe that suits should be just like the people who wear them – completely unique, not generic or mass-produced. Our custom tailored suits are expertly hand-cut to your exact dimensions, so you can look great whatever your body type.
We have been handcrafting suits the same way the French initially taught our tailors in the 1800s. Shoulder sleeves are cut with a gentle forward curve to conform to the natural curve of your shoulders, while the sleeves echo the bend of your arm. Our master tailors hand-fit the shoulder pad to the armhole to ensure a perfect shape. Canvas Construction makes the suit soft, supple, and sculpted for a long life of supreme performance; just place the suit on a hanger and wrinkles will disappear.
Our elegant suiting fabrics have been pre-shrunk by hand to provide unmatched softness and comfort. Once you put on a Kalypso Couture suit for the first time, the difference is noticed immediately. The suit becomes a second skin and lies on your shoulders perfectly while following the natural contours of your body.
Every Kalypso Couture suit is hand-pressed and hand-stitched before delivery and ready to wear. All of these details create a European suit made for an American that looks and feels superior. This quality is evident in the way the suit feels on your shoulders, along your arms, and at your fingertips.
