SIGNATURES: “At the heart of the E. Tautz collection is Savile Row cutting; elegant shoulders, suppressed waist, well proportioned, well balanced and unfussy in keeping with the sporting and military traditions. E.

IDEAL CLIENT: “The Tautz man possesses a refined and simple sense of the aesthetic. He is a man who understands design, function, craftsmanship, and materials.”
TRADEMARK PIECE: “Our tailored outerwear perfectly sums up our love of fine materials, simple cutting and beautiful construction.”
