Jazzy Jacket! Years ago, I was browsing in an African store in Brooklyn, NY. I saw what I thought was a very unique piece of fabric hanging. I envisioned a very jazzy sports jacket. It turns out that the fabric was, in fact, a woman's dress. I bought the dress, shipped it to Ian in LA, and told him to make me a jacket from that dress. He did. I wore it to an upscale reception in Harlem. An entertainer offered me $2500.00 for my jacket, but I did not want to sell it. It was truly unique. It no longer fits me, but it still hangs in my wardrobe. Now, it fits my son.
Ian Carter achieves the Right Fit. Ian Carter Designs has designed and tailored five suits for me. The most consistent comment I receive from others is, "I like how your suit fits". When you achieve that right fit, there's no need to go elsewhere. My suits fit so well that when I got married, Ian Carter Designs also made my white wedding tux. My smashing white formal suit still fits sensational after 18 years. I needed a gold-colored sports jacket for a social occasion. Ian Carter Designs designed and tailored that one as well. It fits sensational. For all of my suits and jackets, Ian personally chooses the fabric for the right fit.
