You and your Tennant Suit

As well as covering the making of my own suit, I’d like to extend an invitation to anyone reading to share their own Tennant Suit with us and tell everyone how you came by it and what you like about it the most.

I am not looking to find out who has the most screen accurate suit: you could have got yours from one of the online sellers; made it yourself, or had a seamstress or family member help you; maybe you found it off the peg on a high street and it is reminiscent of the real thing; you could have even found it in a charity or thrift store - what this is about is your suit and how good you feel wearing it.
Have you ever worn it to a work meeting where no-one but you knows what the suit represents?
There will be no final rating or comparison between owners, so do not worry that you will be judged on anything other than how much you enjoy owning your suit!

If you are interested in sharing your suit on my blog, please get in touch by emailing me at

I am drawing up a list of standard questions which I will send back to you to answer. Feel free to also relay any other comments or anecdotes you would like to share with everyone.
I would ask that you send some photographs, or give me a link to an online gallery where I can find some that I can use. You will be given full approval of a draft of the blog before it goes live, and if you wish, can remain anonymous.


  1. Sadly I don't yet own a Tennant suit, but this is an excellent blog! Do you have any other photos of your Magnoli suit? Preferably minus the coat. It's likely the version I'd buy, but I want a good look at it beforehand. :)

  2. I don't have a suit yet either (or coat :) but I had considered trying to modify (limited to what I can do) this suit...

    not blue pinstripe but similar look and chocolate color...
