Duffle Corto

udesi duffle cortoThe duffle corto is our version of a shorter, more sporty duffle coat - think less Dead Poets' Society and more Steve McQueen in Bullitt. The cumbersome toggles are replaced by our corozo (vegetable ivory) buttons. There is a ticket patch pocket for keys, lighter or other small items. The side pockets are deep enough for a pair of gloves, a few cigars, sunglasses and the other essentials.

This was our first unstructured model we developed more than a decade ago, and the breast pocket features our signature curved opening - known as a barchetta curve, Italian for little boat, which has the same profile. Over the years we have made this garment in Austrian loden, Irish linen, Italian casentino, Brisbane Moss cottons, Loro Piana cashmere, knit fabrics to name but a few. This garment can be made to order in most fabrics to your measurements.

We do things differently. If we did things the same as everyone else, why should anyone come to us? What makes us different, special?

Yellow Duffle Corto

We know what convention is, and we know the "rules". We also know a little bit about fashion and costume history and why things are the way they are in men's tailoring and clothing. We also know they were not always like this, and only by stepping outside of your comfort zone, and not following convention, can you innovate and come up with something new and different. We are not going to reinvent the wheel, but we have created a section for our special projects, beautiful commissions, and out of the ordinary creations. Some of these are one offs and others are available to order. There is nothing hum drum ordinary here. We call it our "WUNDERKISTE" which is german for box of wonders. We could have used an abbreviation or initials like the automotive world does with AMG, SVO, S line, M... but we don't make mass market plastic cars, and our customers are clients, with a name and not a customer number.
