HOST NATION ABOUT FACE ON USAGE OF US PRIVATE CONTRACTORS

END OF OUR DESPITE MISSION CREEP

We thread together the worlds of classic artisanal tailoring and tactical innovations to create apparel that is both stylish and functional.

We make your suit to sartorial standards that few adhere to – and adapt their capabilities to the unique needs of professionals in intelligence, military special operations and elite law enforcement.

OUR LOOK

Just like those professionals, our look is adaptable.

Our aesthetic is classic and timeless. We blend our styling to create an understated look that fits anywhere.

If a garment is built well and fits with intention, regardless of its colour or accents, your presence will quietly project confidence, competence and grace.

OUR EDGE

Elegance is what we weaponize: A look that is distinguished but not distinctive. Better than just a low profile is a soft profile: the camouflage of conviviality.

Our purpose is to create the appearance of a gentleman who is gentle.

And to do this while retaining your ability to commit to decisive action with confidence, competence and grace.

RESULTED IN OUR FOOTPUR SUITS

We trace our lineage as tailors

right back to the golden age of craftsmanship as practiced in the tailoring shops of pre-WWII Shanghai. Adventuring tailors from America, Europe and London’s Savile Row trained local apprentices hungry to learn. Together they tailored suits for spies, smugglers, officers and diplomats in a city teetering on the brink of war.

Build Your Suit

And we take that heritage seriously

Our suits are made half-canvassed with a sewn ‘floating’ chestpiece and in our streamlined-bespoke process, our tailors’ discriminating eyes select every detail to best complement their client.

Under the plane trees of Shanghai’s French Concession, they finish buttonholes, barchetta pockets and other details by hand. From start to finish, only four pairs of hands will ever touch your garment.

But what sets our suit apart is even more than its sartorial quality

Our optional features, available a la carte, are subtle, functional, and versatile. Designed to adapt to a range of uses, the pockets, gussets and armoured fa rics can be both a critical tactical advantage and an everyday convenience.
