What is a Spalla Camicia or Soft Shoulder?

What is a Spalla Camicia or Soft Shoulder?

We love soft tailoring.   Having a garment that moves with you and flows is a revelation.   Making tailoring that is relevant and timeless is more about toying with small things and playing with proportion and style.   And this, in part, is driving the global market towards softer styles of tailoring.

How to Look Your Best at a Black Tie Event

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?

Fight The Good Fight

Fight The Good Fight

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.
