Christmas Buying Guide: Custom tweed sport jacket from S. Cohen

Editor's note — The following is part of's 2013 Christmas Buying Guide. Review the entire Christmas Buying Guide by clicking here.

Just because few tailors on this side of the pond offer proper bespoke doesn't mean high-quality custom clothing isn’t available.

One of the best values is S. Cohen, a family-owned tailoring house that has made its clothing in Montreal for 90 years.

And with its iMeasure Custom Cuts service, discerning gentlemen can get a fully customized sport jacket, blazer, suit or overcoat made in seven business days.

While there's nothing more elegant than a finely tailored suit, a tweed sport jacket — it can take a gentleman from the pews at church on Sunday morning to Friday's dinner with a special lady — makes for the perfect Christmas gift.

Pictured below is a sport jacket that received from S. Cohen.


A classic tweed herringbone sport jacket, its features include natural shoulders, side vents, hacking pockets (as well as a ticket pocket), half-canvassing, fancy lining and a colored melton under-collar. At the back of the collar is an American flag — one of the many choices available in what S. Cohen calls “suitable art.”

Prices will vary, as S. Cohen is only available at select independent menswear shops, iMeasure Custom Cuts is a much better value than the higher priced off-the-rack jacket from the famous brands.
