Pants & Sports Coat • Herr von Eden     |    Shirt • DYN     |     Vest • Blank Etiquette

Herr von Eden is standing for custom-made suits in classical cuts and made of extravagant fabrics. Brent Jansen, the founder of the brand, is outfitting the modern dandies out there, but if you are looking for an ordinary, formal suit, he will be glad to be at your service. Based in Hamburg, the label runs additional stores in Cologne in Berlin. The concept of the brand seems to work beautifully because celebrities like Jan Delay are fans of the label’s creations.

The fall and winter collection seems just like a time journey through the history of the suit. The cuts are very versatile and feature elements of different stylistic eras. Ranging from the timeless, modern two-button sports coat with slim lapels and edgy, slim and straight cut to models which seem to have been inspired by the past, the assortment will satisfy anyone who is looking for a personalized suit. Very typical of Herr von Eden: In terms of colors and patterns, the designers didn’t hesitate to go full wild. In the look book on the brand’s homepage, this fact was very visible. Indeed, browsing through the look book felt like travelling back in time.

Let’s start the fashionable time journey with a suit made of a grey mottled fabric which could have been worn between 1900 and 1920. With chest pockets featuring rounded shapes, short lapels and a waisted cut, the suit coat definitely fits in the first half of the 20th century. The emphasis on the chest with the help of a rather slim shoulder part was a typical stylistic feature of this epoch. Furthermore, the patch, which decorates the inner part of the elbow, serves as a small eye catcher because it takes us back to the present as a rather contemporary feature. The grey, mottled pants are defined by a rather loose and straight cut furthermore, which was very fashionable in the 20ies. A shirt in a bright grey nuance and wood green suede monks cap off the elegant look.

One ensemble made of a blue suit with blue, patterned lining and wine red buttonholes, black and white dotted shirt and marine blue trilby shoes forms a subtle modern mix of patterns. This extravagant style is emphasized by accessories like a black and white dotted dress handkerchief and the red, checked tie. The topic “patterns” seems to run through the collection like a golden thread, ranging from dots, checks, pinstripes to leopard patterns.

The most extravagant look however can be seen on the cover of the look book. An outfit made ofluscious cobalt blue velvet, a bow covered in a tartan print, a black fur coat and a bowler hat is the personification of the essence which fuels Herr von Eden.
