OUR NEW BIRMINGHAM STORE HAS THE FEEL OF AN EXCLUSIVE GENTLEMEN'S CLUB. DOORS OPEN 16TH NOVEMBER
Step inside our new store and you may be reminded of one of the most stylish films of all time. The surroundings take inspiration from The Thomas Crown Affair of 1968, and the bespoke offering is in keeping with the dapper wardrobe worn by leading man Steve McQueen.
True to the spirit of the movie, the ‘concept’ store will offer a top-to-toe custom-made wardrobe. It seems only fitting that interior designer Tasha Nash, from Penn M Studio, was influenced by the film’s iconic chess scene (pictured right). Starring Faye Dunaway alongside McQueen, the setting oozed high style and glamour. The Birmingham store, with its strong linear shapes and sensual curves, combined with the subtle colour palette and a nod to art deco, has a similar feel.
Nash explains: “I liked the idea of a club – a studio where clients and tailors work together, followed by the fitting, after which they move to a more relaxed zone.”
From tailoring to shirts and shoes, every item will be made to order with hand-chosen details. This results in a truly unique wardrobe.
"The new concept allows clients to design their own casual wear, such as trainers and stretch jersey shirting, alongside more traditional tailoring." HEAD TAILOR, MATT RODEN
