Whether you are a business owner or a barrister, an entrepreneur or an investor, having a solid wardrobe of men’s business suits is essential.
Peaky Blinders is here, and the bit I get most excited about, is those Peaky Blinder suits and the whole Peaky Blinder fashion.
Autumn is a busy time for Colmore Tailors and fine tailoring. And in particular for sharp, well made evening wear. From made-to-measure (MTM) dinner suits to bespoke velvet tuxedo jackets, we make them all at this time of year. But with the lines of formal and casual becoming ever more blurred what should you wear to a black tie event?
You can also book an appointment for a bespoke or made-to-measure (MTM) suit at our home studio in Lichfield.
We moved into our Birmingham City Centre studio at the start of July and things are coming along nicely. Whilst all our changes may not be immediately apparent to the casual observer, the more eagle-eyed will notice subtle changes on a weekly basis. (save for the re-decorating job, which is a tad more obvious). These improvements will continue to be implemented and your feedback, good and bad, is always welcomed. For those of you that do not know, we are based just off New Street and overlook Temple Row. One minute's walk from Colmore Row and the Great Western Arcade
Believe it or not, but years ago Bespoke clothing was the norm. Ready-to-wear had not been thought of and Birmingham's streets were teeming with tailors. It was not uncommon to have a tailor on the corner of every street.
Over the years RTW has become more prominent, sacrificing fit (the most important part of clothing) and replacing it with speed and impulsiveness. Don't get me wrong, RTW has its place, but my heart will always be with custom tailoring, made to fit me and me alone.
