For over a year now I've been travelling to the lovely but cold city of Newcastle to tailor some well cut suits. During my travels I've seen some really stylish looks from these cool cats up north and have bared witness to their infamous night life.
Not to overstep London but Newcastle has one of the most vibrant night life's in the UK and the young lads up here really like to mix up their jeans and t's with a .
A fancy blazer or a well cut sports jacket is a favourite for the Geordie lads who are out about on the town and who want to show a little flare. So in honour of these extra stylish young men, who I have become accustom to seeing during my nights out in Newcastle, I have written this blog entitled Newcastle Night Suit - just for those dapper gents in the North East. If you're a gent that loves to look good every weekend then this article is for you and it gives key tips on how to make you the unsuspected star of the night. To start, you need to understand what or how a night suit really differs from a day suit .
The key focus in this area relates to the design of the suit, it's fabrication and colour. If you're looking to buy a suit or better yet get a well cut one from a bespoke tailor, you need to understand exactly what details your suit needs to make it perfect for an evening out. To begin, always go for the 1 button jacket as you have to give off an overtly casual look that spells young and fun, and in this case the 2 button jacket will appear to classic and dressed up while the 3 button will look totally out of place. Next are the lapels and collar, you can go with either a peaked or notch lapel but the key is to cut them in satin like a dinner suit, however never cut the lapels in the exact same colour satin as the suit fabric as to not make it a dinner suit. Don't forget to add your lapel button hole colour. If you are not a fan of the satin lapels you can forgo this and use a velvet collar instead, but the play of different fabric and colour must be used to create the night suit. In relation to the rest of the suit details the design should go as follow, make sure your pockets are flapless and do not add a ticket pocket with this look, 1 working button on your sleeve cuff, turn-up's on your trousers and keep the overall design of the trouser minimal. Keep it simple with cross pockets, no back pockets, adjusters and flat fronts.
Finally the colour of the suit, never use black for your night suit funnily enough. On all other occasions colourful suits can appear tasteless, but if you are a man of the night try mixing it up with a maroon velvet suit or a Ultramarine blue VBC-130 Mohair suit. Whatever your choice make it colourful and bold but not loud. Use dark bright colours such maroon, teal, olive, and plum.
The last few days I have spent travelling the country with the very stylish ladies and gents from Movember!
Movember are currently touring the UK to raise awareness of men's health, and they were wearing some very dashing jackets. You can get yourself one of these .
As you may know Robert Noble commissioned an exclusive tweed for us especially for Movember. The launch parties were a lot of fun and you could even get a wet shave especially for the occasion. The parties were at Mr Lynch in Newcastle and Carbaret Voltaie in Edinburgh.
My particular favourite were the Mo bro, bag pipe players in Kilts!
