As a kid, getting older is rarely pleasant, what with the outgrowing clothes overnight, the unsteady voice, and the unfortunate growing pains (except the Leo episodes, those were awesome!). Experiencing a smoother maturation than most, suddenly-larger Commonwealth Proper.
The baby of a Philly attorney-by-day/designer-by-night, CP's growing its business with a web shop offering its locally renowned shirts to anyone into wearing clothes, plus debuting made-to-measure and bespoke suits constructed exactly how you want them, like Legos, only much tougher to lodge in your sinus cavity. To garb yourself in the first-to-Philly bespoke line, trundle down to the showroom or schedule a house call, and CP stylists'll measure you up, work back and forth on your desired style/cuts, make a muslin test suit, throw you in the tester and remeasure, and then build the final suit off the muslin -- but be careful telling Uncle Ira, he's a little old fashioned and doesn't really care for Middle Easterners. As they've got more swatches than a Debbie Gibson album cover, fabric choices are essentially limitless; the consultants'll walk you through those as you decide between single or double breasted, one, two, or three buttons, and peaked or notched lapels, or you can just go with the house style: a single-button, notched lapel number with outline-enhancing pick stitching -- way more fun than the beloved sweat-shop pastime, Pick Up Stitching.
At site launch, this and last month's shirts are available (red/navy checks, charcoal and lavender solids, fine-print polka dot), and if the bespoke jobs're a little out of reach, they also offer made-to-measure suits using prefabbed templates but leveraging the same style and fabric choices, noting that thin fabrics move better than thick, so they obviously haven't seen Alan dance.
