OUR HEAD TAILORS SHARE THEIR TIPS FOR THE SEASON
Matt on tie knots “The four in hand knot makes for a narrow, asymmetrical and more discreet tie knot. It is best suited to a dress shirt and can accommodate most widths and textures of neckwear” Lee on Tie knots: The Windsor Knot. The Windsor knot is named after the stylish Duke of Windsor. It's a knot that is normally worn with a cut away or wide spread collar, as it is a fat knot or you could also use the half Windsor which is a more modern knot and smaller. Either can be worn to any event. But a very popular and British style.
Richard on winter layers: In winter, you’ll need to bundle up against the cold weather but still be able to dress down to a comfortable office temperature. Winter dress coats are a must, such as a pea coat which can cover your suit, keep you warm, and look great with a scarf. Dress in layers for additional weather protection.
Ian on Event Etiquette: Always check the dress codes on the invitation to avoid being impolite. Lounge suits refers to a suit worn with a shirt and tie; Black tie requires a white dress shirt, black bow tie and an evening suit or jacket.
Jason on Waistcoats Since the world cup it seems that waistcoats are a new invention! It was actually first introduced in to the English court by Charles the second in 1666 and before the invention of the wrist watch- it was a garment that was also used to hold your pocket watch. Wearing a waistcoat is an excellent way to turn a standard 2-piece suit in to an outfit of style and luxury, especially for special occasions such as weddings
Billy on Braces: Using Braces with your Garment can give you that classic elegant look and also allows to give your trousers a clean finish. You can also use braces in a tone or print to match your tie to finish your outfit.
