Les Guthrie - Fine Fabrics' Gentlemen's Mask Model

3-layers of the finest cotton:

Sea Island Cotton Mask in a Sateen Weave

Lined with Pima Cotton Broadcloth milled in England

Underlined with Cotton Interfacing (Made in USA)

Trimmed and tied with soft, flexible bias tape (made in Italy)

The rarest type of cotton, Sea Island's unique combination of qualities explain why it is so highly prized: Extra-long staple length, fine uniform texture, great tensile strength, silky lustre and an extraordinarily soft feel.

Comfortable and conforming to facial contours:

Small pleat under the chin

Pleat across mouth large enough to sing, bellow or scream

Center nose box pleat, with two tucks conform around a wide variety of noses, and hold body of mask softly away from mouth.

Small tucks over cheek bones pull mask below eyes.

Comfortably adjusts with cotton bias around ears and under chin. Overcomes irritation experienced by wearing elastic, and doesn’t force ears outward.

Can it get any better than this? Add to the mix, Susanne’s professional demeanor masks are made exclusively for Fine Fabrics of Santa Barbara by Eduardo.

Eduardo is Santa Barbara (and Montecito’s) local pedigree tailor. Sample maker for Shaun and Carla Thomson’s Solitaire, Firenze and others. Couture for Luis Estevez and tutelage under Letizia Alta Moda for more than 17 years. It does not get any more bespoke than this… not in London, Paris, Milan or Barcelona.

Fine Fabrics’ masks are face coverings, to wear as a courtesy to others and to comply with general face covering regulations, such as entering stores or other public venues. They are not medical devices or personal protective equipment (PPE).
