Made from striped British Merino wool, manufactured in Somerset, England, our Pinkney suit is a work of UK artistry.

Introducing the elegant new Temperley tailoring story, creating a characterful and feminine silhouette:

The shawl collar jacket, with its neatly nipped-in waist, is a reworking of AW19’s Tuxudo Jacket.

The high-waist, wide-legged trouser elongates the body, flattering all figures.

A truly statement two-piece — for louche styling, wear with our cinched June Shirt. Finish with a fine roll neck for an effortless day-to-night look or layer blazer over skin to emphasise the deep neckline and bibbed collaring.

We get a BTS look at the expert techniques that go into the creation of our beautiful AW22 suiting.

Which country is it manufactured in?

‘England, both fabric and suit.’

What was the inspiration behind the Pinkney?

‘The idea for the name came from Pinckney, a western state in the US that is totally in keeping with the collection mood. The Pinkney suit is the perfect fusion of locally produced Somerset wool and this season’s Wild West country look.’

What goes into the sourcing of the wool?

‘We use high-quality fabrics, such as Merino wool, to ensure longevity and quality in our garments. Wool is warm yet breathable, naturally water-repellent and long-lasting.

‘We were keen to work with local heritage wool producer Fox Flannel, so we were thrilled to find one of their beautiful fabric designs that complemented the AW22 colour palette.’

What is the process of it being made?

‘The lengthy step-by-step construction process — done by the skilled craftspeople at Fox Flannel — is the epitome of slow fashion: choosing the wool yarn, weaving (which can consist of over 5,000 ends), inspecting, measuring, darning and milling for softness. Then to the final finishing stages: steaming, pressing and shipping to garment makers. ’

How long does it take?

‘The production process for the wool alone takes around 8-10 weeks.’

How does creating a striped suit vary from one of plain fabric?

‘Our pattern cutter works closely with the design team to ensure the stripes are perfectly placed — a particularly meticulous process when working with soft flares!’

What is the finish like?

‘Merino wool comes from Merino sheep — a breed world-renowned for providing the finest, highest quality fibre, giving the suit a lightweight, soft and impossibly comfortable finish.’

Do you have a favourite way to wear it?

‘Layered over a crisp white cotton shirt.’
