The Story of the Savile Row Teba
Classic Spanish Meets Classic English
Francisco — our Spanish correspondent and Teba expert — has forwarded on some pictures to share of a Teba jacket he had made on Savile Row.
Francisco wanted to try a fully bespoke Teba from Savile Row. He contacted Joshua Byrne, a cutter at Henry Poole at the time, to see if he could help. Francisco sent over one of his Tebas to see if Joshua could create a version. Joshua, who is now running Byrne & Burge tailors of Mayfair, happily obliged.
The Teba has hand-stitched collar, lapels and buttonholes (with polished horn buttons), and has the Teba's traditional blousy shirt-cuff sleeves and 'skirt' at the back. Francisco is thrilled.
Here's Francisco wearing it with a bespoke shirt from Turnbull & Asser, trousers from Slowear's Incotex and some (Pre-Prada) Church's shoes in Cordovan leather.
