Relaxed tailoring

So the summer is not far away and there is a real feeling of impending warmth. You have some fabulous tailored suits in the wardrobe and a couple of pairs of shorts and of course the flipflops and the loafers but unfortunately the looks do not work together.  You still want to look smart in the summer months but a suit is too much and flipflops too little.  Tailoring is not just about tweed jackets and city suits it’s about so much more.  Softer construction, lightweight and half lined are terms used to create a less structured but sophisticated jacket without the confines of traditional tailoring.

The new summer blazer: High twist micro structures, lightweight and crease resistant give a sharp style or the traditional linen jacket both in heavy and lightweight for that Riviera look provide the ideal solution.  Tailored shorts and shirts in cotton and linen ensure style and breathability.  With numerous patterns and fits you can guarantee a look that is relaxed yet stylish.

Pastel shades are abundant again this year in the male and female wardrobe.  The contrast to the darkness of winter colour creates a welcome relief and perfect for the lighter weight fabrics.

Remember made to measure take up to 6 weeks so inow is the time to get that summer wardrobe underway.
