Jess’ not-so-quiet design debut. The vintage fabric that inspired this suit series comes from a dwindling and hard-to-find source. This strong, durable hemp fabric was handwoven by Hmong hill tribe people, most of it dating back more than 30 years (and much more for certain pieces). There just aren’t very many people weaving this kind of cloth anymore. Vintage textiles of this quality are becoming increasingly rare and more expensive. The fabric pieces are only as wide as can be woven on a back strap loom and vary in length. One roll is typically not enough to make a single garment (Jess’ full black suit from the collection required four different black pieces!), so unique pieces must be matched as closely as possible (or not, depending on one’s taste) to make a seamless garment.

As of now, the collection has two ready-to-wear jackets and three pairs of shorts, but any of the Baby’s Got Suit pieces can be custom ordered. The process will depend on where you're located. Colors will depend upon availability, but you can usually choose from black, white, brown, blue, yellow and sometimes olive green or light red. Jacket linings can come in either cotton or silk (for an additional cost). Our tailor and co-conspirator in this design process is Feroz. He is an experienced tailor with exacting standards and a great eye. The construction of all these pieces is of the highest quality. He’s also a really good and fun person. Only caveat is that you’ll unfortunately be missing out on his in-person presence in this process, but we could always figure out some face time! Please contact jess@lemondeur.com if interested in a custom Baby's Got Suit piece to discuss further.
