2008, proving that you can get a suit made with the world's best fabrics and with details you'd find in a four-figure suit for a fraction of the cost. Today, the Ludlow comes in two fits and new fabrics from renowned mills every season. Believe it or not, the blazer actually began as athleticwear. Part of the uniform worn by rowers at Cambridge and Oxford universities, it soon found its way into the wardrobes of the entire student body, even making its way across the Atlantic to America's Ivy League schools. With its sporty yet polished construction, it's just about the most versatile piece of tailoring in a person's closet—and you no longer have to row a boat to wear it. This updated version is made of wool that has the refined feel of a fabric you'd get from Italy, which is no surprise since American Woolen Co. (est. 1899), the historic Connecticut mill that weaves it, once supplied one of Italy's most respected fabric houses.
