Prince Charles wearing Steven Hitchcock bespoke…..
I am very happy to see that HRH the Prince of Wales is still wearing the Vicuna polo coat that I made him back in 2001. Above is a picture of the pattern I cut for him, for the overcoat and also another pattern that I cut a year after for his dinner suit and two piece double breasted suits. It was a very exciting opportunity to make for Prince Charles at such an early stage in my career as an independent tailor.
The cloth is Vicuna, which is a very luxurious and warm cloth to wear. Prince Charles told me that the cloth was given to him as a gift and wanted a warm smart coat made up. I am very pleased that he his still wearing the coat and is often photographed in it. It must be his favourite!!
