We would like to thank everybody for helping celebrate our 120 years of tailoring event last month.  We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the event, as I know we did.

I would like to thank Huddersfield Cloth for helping put on the night and also The Balvenie for continuously pouring rounds of delicious Old Fashions into the night.

I often have clients who ask ‘What is the best cloth to travel with?’

So here are my top picks and why these cloths are good for travel.

  • New fine worsted by Dugdale Bros – for a pure wool cloth this is a great cloth which has a slight ‘uptwist’ in the yarn which helps the cloth shed creases more readily and retain its shape over long periods.

 

  • Wool and mohair blends work very well as a travel cloth. The mohair helps the cloth spring back after being creased, our favourite wool/mohair bunches are from William Halstead and Dugdale Bros.

Demand for tuxedos remains strong throughout the year. If you are thinking of adding a bespoke tuxedo to your wardrobe here are a few considerations which will help you make the right style choice.

Our most popular style is the single breasted/single button with either a peaked lapel or wide shawl lapel. Pockets are finished with a straight jet with no flaps. Two vents or no vents at the back should be the only choice. Double breasted tuxedos are also a great choice.

 

Cloth and colour

We recommend a cloth with some body in a medium weight and a matt finish, this helps create a more distinct contrast between the cloth and its satin lapels.

Barathea is the most traditional cloth for tuxedos, it is made up of a wool and mohair blend.

The three colours are black, navy, and midnight navy. Our most popular choice currently is midnight navy.

Standard features for all of our tuxedos include black satin or silk grosgrain lapels, jet pockets and covered buttons.

The trouser outside leg with also have a matching satin braid.
