When a garment is of full canvas construction the suit is what we call a "luxury tailored garment". Aside from being able to mold to the silhouette of the body, it creates the shape we envision a well tailored suit to look like. The garment in turn, has immensely enhanced durability and will even outlast a brutal rainstorm. Find out why some fabrics will start to "bubble" over time, in this concise informative article.
Canvas is made up of a material called "horsehair" and sits between the two fabric panels of a suit.
The suit panels are glued together by machine.
Lapel and chest have canvas, bottom of jacket is glued.
See benefits of canvas below
The full front panel of the suit has full canvassing.
Pinch the suit (usually in between where the front buttons are or by the lapel) and rub the fabric. If the suit has canvas, you'll feel the horsehair between the two fabric panels, if not you wont feel anything.
At Gage Court Clothiers, we use the highest level of tailoring. Every suit is tailored with a full canvas construction and consists of top notch quality.
