Nutters of Savile Row x Peter Werth
David originally studied chemistry at university in his hometown of Manchester with a view to a career in nuclear energy. He then swapped fission for fashion and entered the explosive world of bespoke tailoring by working alongside Edward Sexton (Tommy Nutter's original partner).
“The tailoring has a strong silhouette which employs the trademark Nutters features of gargantuan lapels, roped shoulders and wide legged trousers, but the fabrication is soft and unstructured, using jersey-knit fabrics for blazers and shirts (as a nod to Peter Werth's background as a knitwear manufacturer). Conversely, the knitwear pays homage to Savile Row by incorporating over scaled Prince of Wales, houndstooth and windowpane check designs.”
“A soft, unstructured, buggy-lined, double-breasted blazer with patch pockets, cut from a heavy jersey-knit fabric. It is as comfortable as a cardigan yet retains a sharp, clearly defined silhouette.”
