The capsule wardrobe is a popular concept. We can certainly see the attraction of having a minimalist wardrobe populated only with the very best bespoke tailoring. The idea of a capsule wardrobe is that everything is a hundred percent your style, is of the very best quality and is the perfect fit. Also key is that all pieces within a capsule wardrobe should be complementary; everything in there can be worn with everything else.
In reality, very few clothing collections could truly be described as...
Style inspiration sometimes comes from somewhat unexpected sources. We’re well used to looking to oscar winners, James Bond films and costume dramas for tailoring inspiration, but what about an actor who is best known for his roles in rom-coms and comic book adaptations?
Step up Ryan Reynolds. The star of films such as The Proposal, Definitely Maybe, Blade: Trinity and Deadpool really knows how to work a suit.
Earlier this year, GQ named Reynolds as one of their 13 Most Stylish Men in the...
Knitted or woven, wool or silk; the humble scarf has a rather more illustrious history than you may imagine! Rather than simply being a practical item of clothing to keep your neck warm in winter weather, scarves have been worn for two millennia for reasons of style, practicality and military necessity.
One of the earliest uses of scarves was in Ancient China. There, knotted neck scarves were worn by the military. They had a fairly practical purpose: different colours of scarf represented different ranks....
Each month we ask our expert tailors to address one of your most frequent questions. This month we’re talking linings. What do you need to know?
Bespoke menswear isn’t just about how you look: it’s also about how you feel. We want you to look great in your tailoring… but we also want to ensure you feel confident and, most importantly, comfortable.
The type of lining you choose will have a big impact on how comfortable your made to measure tailoring is. It will...
We may be in the grips of an Indian Summer, but this unseasonably warm weather can’t last forever. Not to worry: once the time for rolled up shirtsleeves and evening BBQs has come to an end, there are plenty of things to look forward to about autumn.
One of the things we’re particularly excited about is delving back into our autumnal wardrobes. Here are six things we’re keen to get back into our everyday style rotations:
Tailoring aficionados will understand what we mean when we...
We may be well into the Autumn/Winter fashion season… but is mid-September too early to start talking about winter coats? We say no.
The weather may still be too mild to need to wear one (luckily!), but if you want to be well prepared for the cooler weather ahead, now is the time to start.
A good winter overcoat will last for many years. However, in order to get this benefit you’ll need to put in a bit of effort in return. This is the ideal time of year to...
Would you like to know one of our key tricks for looking stylish season after season? It’s not particularly sexy we’re afraid! The trick? Pre-preparation.
It’s hard to dress smartly when your wardrobe hasn't caught up with the weather. Temperatures can change very quickly, which is why it’s so important to make sure you’re ready for autumn/winter before summer is really at an end.
If you haven’t yet thought about what your wardrobe is going to look like over the coming season, now is...
Each month we ask our expert tailors to address one of your most frequent questions. This month we’re all about trouser hems. What’s the right length?
Tailoring the perfect pair of trousers is a complex job. Every gentleman has specific preferences for fit and finish, and we make it our mission to get it completely right every time.
Many of the choices involved in trouser construction are just that: choices. Whether you have a button or zip fly, whether you opt for...
Today we’re taking style inspiration from an Oscar winner who’s played such diverse roles as Marius Pontmercy in Les Miserables, Professor Stephen Hawking in A Theory of Everything and Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl.
We’re talking, of course, about British actor Eddie Redmayne.
In addition to being a multi award-winning actor (including GQ’s Best Dressed Man 2015), Redmayne has the added talent of looking great in traditional tailoring. Perhaps it’s confidence, perhaps it’s something he learnt during his modelling career or perhaps it’s...
Looking good in bespoke tailoring isn’t all about the suit itself. The accessories you choose to wear with it will have a huge impact on the overall success of your outfit.
The most important of these accessories is the shirt.
Shirts form the base of any good tailored outfit. Think of the shirt you choose as the foundation of your suit. A hasty or half-hearted foundation is never a solid start. Taking care over your shirt choice will give your outfit a much stronger foundation...
