Covering all areas of your wardrobe is what we specialise in. From Male or Female tailoring through to relaxed everyday wear, our range of products, fabric and style advice is limitless.
Before the designs begin, we will discuss your current wardrobe, the gaps you have and the pieces you have that you would like to compliment. Climate, purpose and personal style is considered and from here, the designs begin. This enables us to advise on fabric, construction and fit. We know that some days, formal suiting for business is required. Whereas other days, a casual outfit is more fitting. Functional and fashionable, can this be done? We know so – with our specialist knowledge of technical fabrics and product designs, comfort and style are always achieved. Here are some examples below of our casual range and our top tips on what to style them with.
The Overcoat: A versatile piece for all occasions, the overcoat can be worn both formal and casually. A classic overcoat such as a single breasted, three button can be worn formally over a suit or casually accompanies well with knitwear. Various fabric options available including plain pure wools and the more adventurous herringbone and check alpaca designs.
The Car Coat:
Available in multiple colours - this garment is a casual offering to outerwear. Worn over knitwear or simple a t-shirt a versatile look is always created, working well with denim and sneakers or trousers and shoes.
The Storm System:
Available in multiple colours, this treated wool technology ensures the raincoat is truly waterproof. A very lightweight garment allows for multi season wear.
If the occasion requires a jacket, fabric and construction is key. A de-constructed jacket has canvassing (pre-shrunk horsehair) stripped out to eliminate a layer. Lightweight blends are best such as Wool/Silk/Linen. Wool is durable and easy to care for, it carries an elasticity to it that eliminates creasing which is fantastic when paired with Linen. The silk will add texture with its luxurious feel and drapes beautifully. All combined, this is our best solution for a summer weight jacket that is lightweight, breathable and luxurious – without any creasing.
DRAW STRING TROUSERS
What it is – a great life hack! A trouser but with an elasticated waistband and drawstring finish. This allows you create a smart look but relaxed feel- we can create this in anything from stretch cotton to wear with sneakers and our knitwear, through to light weight virgin wool formal trousers.
With Utility pockets top and bottom coupled with a fabric belt, the safari jacket started life as a military garment in the tropics – later adopted by Hollywood stars such as Clarke Gable in the 40s and 50s . Predominately made in cotton and linen blends in summer, we also like to use other fabrics to change the look such as a warmer and textured flannel. It can be used as an over jacket to a shirt and tie, creating a formal look or paired with a roll neck from our knitwear range leans itself to a casual piece. This also gives you the versatility of a multi season jacket.
