No, we won’t speak about all the Husbands living in Paris…

Husbands Paris is a men label launch in April 2013.

The name is a wink to John Cassavetes’s film.

Here we don’t speak about image, trend, concept…
Husbands Paris just make suits, shirts, ties and boots using the best fabrics they can find and produced in very high skills workshop.

All Husbands Paris pieces are made with lots of care and know-how.

The pieces aren’t cheap but as we wrote, you don’t buy a concept or an image, you buy Quality !


The “Burton”  catalogue (1934) contains details and information about the collection, clothing, fabrics, finishes and services. Some pictures of the cutting room and canteen.

If there’s a Belgian Pride, one of them is surely Scabal.

The Belgian culture is a mix of lots of cultures and influences.

Brussels is a kind of small Babylonia where lots of cultures meet and mix.

In Brussels there’s a word for this mix : « zinneke ».

Scabal is this kind of mix : all the Italian Sartorial genius mix with Savile Row Bespoke  Tailoring.

We won’t call it « zinneke »….but Scabal is really a mix of the Best Tailoring technics from all over.

Scabal have a great Made To Measure service offering the best available fabrics in shirting and suits.

We are just wondering when they will launch a « prêt-à-porter » Scabal line to make the name more accessible and younger….
