Now listen up. You find yourself in his office. He's dressed in a very well tailored, 3 piece suit with slim lapels matching his skinny tie. He's talking and you're listening intently to every word that's passing his lips.
Something else is playing heavily on your mind though. You know you need to listen to what he's saying, but your focus is now on some of the objects in the room.
You can see them on the desk by the wall. You know the contents will feel amazing against your skin, and you can't help but imagine what you'll look like when you're wearing them. If only you could just reach out and touch. Behave now ladies and gents, I am of course talking about your style advisor and our fabulous Swatch books. Within the sumptuous cloth on offer, we have an astonishing number of this seasons favourite colour. Grey. Whether it's light or dark, lightweight or heavy, plain or patterned, we have over 50 shades of Grey in our studios to choose from. (98 to be exact). Our range offers choice of cloth from Mohair, to Wool Silk as well as 100% worsted wool to cover your occasion.
If you're off on a cruise, or planning your perfect wedding suit, you'll be sure to find what you're looking for. But how are you going to find out what's best for you? Book an appointment with your local style advisor. He (or she) will talk to you to establish just exactly what the suit will be used for in order to find your perfect cloth match. For those out there who are looking for a little more colour in their lives, why not try our Black, Navy, or more natural colours. Whatever your skin tone, we'll advise you best on what's going to look good on you. Hear that ladies? Advise? You don't have to obey us of course, you're free to make your own choice....
See you in Studio soon.
Well, this year has already given us a glimpse of summer, and that can mean only one thing, time to lighten up our wardrobes in the hope that we reach those temperatures again. When it comes to suiting, we really should be pushing the heavy wools to the back and bringing out the light weight wools and linens.
I would opt in favour of , or our if you're looking for something for the office. It is nice and lightweight, but in a range of colours suitable for the office.
If you're heading off on holiday, or just want something more casual, try our Linens. There are some fantastic colours on offer this year. Have a look at my Linen Suiting blog to see some ideas. Of course, the three piece can be just as useful in summer as it is in winter. Think about leaving your jacket in the office when out for lunch. Wear your waistcoat instead. This will maintain the ultra smart appearance, whilst still keeping you cool. I've seen many of Edinburgh 's streets recently swarming with blokes who are cutting a dash with a waistcoat and trouser combo as well as a few famous faces.
Two of A Suit That Fits favourites do this look in the own way; Gary Barlow goes with his signature high chested six button waistcoat with a slight lossening of the tie to give it just a dash of the casual. David Beckham goes for a light grey waistcoat and trousers, worn with a tie but rolling up his sleeves to give his otherwise smart look a sporty feel. Colour also is an important factor when getting a new summer suit. I wouldn't advice a light grey or cream linen suit in the winter for instance but when the sun shines they are perfect colours. Light grey is a great shade for the office and cream for casual. It has never really gone out of style, proven by the image above. On the very far left we have Robert Redford in his younger days showing that separates are the way to go in his double breasted cream waistcoat with lapels and matching trousers. In the middle is Brad Pitt in a more relaxed outfit, wearing a two piece cream suit with an open collar shirt and last but not least we have P Diddy. He is wearing a two button notched collar, linen, cream suit with silver pocket square.
