Glenurquhart Check Suit

A recent photo of one of my bespoke Giliberto suits in action for the winter season. This is a two-buttoned number in a Glenplaid check pattern with a palette of mahogany, navy, cranberry, and apricot tones on a buff ground. It has side vents and working buttons on the cuffs. The hand-built shoulder pads and hand-laid canvas chestpieces are set with over 1,000 hand stitches; I count 1,098 in mine. The trousers sport reverse pleats and 2" cuffs. I prefer to wear it in the colder months, preferably whilst enjoying a ribeye steak, a bottle of Glenfiddich, and good conversation beside a crackling fire.

We professional drinkers always think you rich guys will eventually learn about REAL single malts, but you never do. Oh well, I suppose there is no disputing taste.
