Take 30% off our Heavy Tailor’s Shears

Although it is a cliche, some things they just aren’t made the way they used to be.  Heavy, vintage tailor’s shears are coveted, treasured, and passed along; true rarities because they have not been made for over 35 years.  With them, a tailor is about to cut large tranches of fabric, using the weight of the shears to steady the hand.

In 2014, a Styleforum member found a factory that still had the old molds necessary to craft these precision instruments, and set out to have them made for members of Styleforum and the tailoring community. Sensing that these precisions instruments would be desired by professional tailors and tailoring students long after the factory molds were once again cold, Styleforummarket ordered about a dozen pairs for sale to the tailoring community.  After months, the factory was finally able to reproduce the shears to our exacting specifications.

You now have an rare opportunity to get a pair of these heavy shears, which Styleforum’s professional tailors say are far superior to anything available today.  Properly cared for, these shears are an investment that should last you more than a lifetime.

To celebrate this past year, we’re offering a limited-time discount on these heirloom tools. For this weekend only, use the code THANKS30SF to receive 30% off your purchase. We have very limited quantities available, and these will never be restocked.

Way back in 2015, Fok and I talked to Yuki Matsuda of Monitaly about putting together a special run of the Mountain Parka and Six Pocket pants. Fok wanted an outfit that brought back memories of nighttime campfires in his native Canada, and as a result we came up with a special two-stage dye job that’s deep, dusky, and full of character. These garments are made from US Military tent canvas, which means they can take a beating. I’ve worn mine hiking and fishing all through the woods, as well as to work in the morning.

This spring, we took them out for a spin when we shot our spring GMTO editorial, and got a few pictures that showcase the depth of color on these pieces. They’re stunning in person – rich, heavy, and wearable with a range of casual outfits.
