Benjamin Ferencz’s Selectism column points to the remarkable bespoke work of Freeman’s Sporting Club. FSC’s clothes are made from deadstock cotton, wool, and other unused materials from the 1950s and 1960s. Their works are built to last and designed to age beautifully.
Although that kind of custom tailoring is way over my paygrade, the select pieces available for sale at Refinery29 move FSC’s collection from the fantastic to the merely aspirational.
