P Johnson's Are The New Breed Of Tailors
P Johnson is a custom men's tailor specialising in soft, supple and ultra-light tailoring. Established in Sydney in 2008 and now with showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, New York and London, P Johnson offers a unique approach to creating elegant and versatile wardrobes for their clients. P Johnson references traditional Italian tailoring practices, with a focus on lightness, simplicity and wearability. Features such as a high lapel and unpadded/soft shoulder add a nonchalant demeanour to the styling, quite often you'd think riviera and beautiful Italian countryside.
P Johnson suits are constructed in Italy by traditional artisanal means to ensure a softness, flexibility and freshness on the body. You should be able wear a suit in the same way that you wear pyjamas, unconsciously. They work with the best weavers in Biella to build beautiful ranges of cloth to suit all needs. Sartoria Carrara is their atelier based in the marble forged landscape of the Apuane Alps of North-West Tuscany. The region is unique in its deep tailoring history, and here the local artisan tailors create P Johnson suits by hand, preserving the skills and traditional practices that are so essential to a suit's beauty. The design is understated, pure and minimal.
The brand itself is luxurious, minimal, yet warm and inviting. Their showrooms are based around the idea of a house that you're joining the P Johnson family, often with couches and a ton of natural light. Collaborating with Barneys and Mr. Porter as well as launching a leisure wear line allows customers and fans of the brand to still enjoy good quality cuts and fabrics without needing to purchase a suit. P Johnson takes itself light heartedly, it is one of the bright sparks in men's tailoring where it doesn't have to be a chore to wear a suit everyday.
