Dear valued customer, it is a pleasure to welcome you back to Suit Academy. 

We have not been completely idle in recent months, and we are happy to surprise you with our news today listed below.

As with all of you, the Spring started rough: with the lockdowns, restrictions, and health concerns. Our wedding fairs were cancelled, your weddings postponed, work, and travel plans altered.  But thankfully, despite those setbacks, Suit Academy now warmly welcomes you once again back into our store! Through our internet website, appointments can easily be scheduled at a convenient location of your choice, such as your home or office, ...or at our location in Maastricht.

Chapter 1. Why stop at the hem of your trousers?  

Since your last visit we have expanded our tailoring service to your feet, with Van den Hout shoes. Now you can complement your suit creations and style with shoes from Van den Hout!

This high high-quality footwear is handmade in Portugal and arrives to Suit Academy natural and unpainted. This provides you with the opportunity to choose a model and select a color for your new shoes to reflect your style, or complement your new made-to-measure suit, pants, shirt, jacket. or coat. Van den Hout will complete the coloring of your shoes right here in the Netherlands.

All low models of Van den Hout shoes are priced at €279,—  and the high model shoes are priced €297,— this includes the master quality painting of the shoes according to your wishes.

Chapter 2. Style-shoot with Royal Wedding Experience at Huize Damiaan
Recently we had an amazing day at Huize Damiaan in Simpelveld, providing not only a suit and shoes, but by organizing a photo-shoot, resulting in a fun morning surrounded by wonderful people.

Since 2017, Suit Academy has been privileged to teach a tailoring and men's fashion class each semester at the International Butler Academy, better known by locals as Huize Damiaan. This unique estate located in the hills of Limburg has recently opened its doors for weddings and events. As the lockdown restrictions loosed, we managed to stage a style shoot with fantastic young models who had just graduated from their high schools! For these classmate-models, our photo-shoot marked their last days in Maastricht as they prepared to meet their new lives at university in two different cities! In an aside we would like to offer our congratulations to all the students who graduated school this year during these difficult times! We wish all of them the very best!  But we would like to express a special thanks to our student-models Roos and Robin! You can check out the results of our style-shoot and view our models both inside and outside of Huize Damiaan at the wedding location website
 Royal Wedding Experience  If you or someone you know has wedding plans in the future, please  schedule an appointment to receive a personal tour of the estate. It is a fantastic wedding venue!

Chapter 3. "Homeschooling"  Lesson 2 - Loro Piana

In this edition of our newsletter, we'd like to acquaint you with our Italian Luxury Fabric supplier: Loro Piana. 

One of Italy's finest fabric traders,  the Loro Piana family from Trivero, entered the cloth trade in the early 1800s. About a century later, in 1924, Pietro Loro Piana founded "Ing. Loro Piana & C”, the current company. Soon after, the family started their own fabric production in the town of Valsesia located in the Val D´Aosta, which lies at the base of the Alps. This location was strategically selected for conveniently washing the wool with the clean pure water that originates at the glaciers nearby. Nowadays 95% Loro Piana's glacier water is recycled in a closed circuit system to ensure sustainability and remain environmentally friendly.

In 1941, during the Second World War, Pietro’s nephew Franco took over the company, and by the end of the war, the firm began establishing its reputation as a supplier of premium wool and cashmere textiles for a growing haute couture industry, both home and abroad. Loro Piana works with the best yarns that can be obtained from the different types of wool, and to this day they remain one of the highest quality weavers located in Italy.

High quality is certainly noticeable when you have a tailor-made coat, suit, jacket, waistcoat, or trousers made with Loro Piana fabrics. Come check them out!


Even though its the middle of the summer, now is time to start preparing for winter with a visit to Suit Academy to be fitted for wool coats, jackets, and suits. It takes four weeks to receive suits or overcoats that you create with our store's in-stock fabrics . With special-ordered fabrics from one of our fabric suppliers, it can take  up to six weeks for your items to arrive back at Suit Academy. So now is the best time to order a tailored overcoat to stave off the coming snow. Contact us for your options. Don't wait too long! 

If you order a suit created with Loro Piana Fabrics we will offer you a custom tailored cotton shirt for only 60Euro's.
