So it’s finally here! This has been a long time coming but we’ve finally finished our flagship new line and it’s a doozy!
We’ve noticed a big increase in people asking about country themed weddings, in particular tweed waistcoats and jackets. We always seem to have tweed bespoke stuff on the go but no-one offers it to hire meaning that costs can get ludicrous unless you’re happy with buying cheap plastic tweed suits that have been thrown together by a child (sometimes literally – not cool). So we wanted to answer the call for it and here we are – our new tweed range for 2015.
We went back to our roots with this one – my Father was born in Donegal, Ireland, so we thought it fitting that we would use 100% Donegal tweed for the range, meaning our customers would get the real deal, not some 80% acrylic sack cloth. Let me tell you, we’re glad we did. It’s beautiful, soft, vivid and not too heavy considering – even summer weddings can get the country look if they just opt for waistcoats and no jackets! We’re even going to put some cool usher packages together meaning the groom can go the whole hog with all the trimmings and the rest of the guys can dress down in plain slacks with open collared shirts and braces or maybe even waistcoats and bow ties!
The cut is high fashion without going overboard – slim waisted jacket, close fitting waistcoat with lapel and plain fronted trouser with a narrow leg. We kept the style pretty classical with its narrow notch lapel and slanted pockets to complement the shape.
The hardest bit was the colours! We didn’t want a base colour that was too green or brown so used a little of both and we think you’ll agree it looks great. We didn’t want to go with subtle colours so we picked blue for the accent check because it’s just huge at the moment. Don’t worry when it comes to colour matching bridesmaids though, this goes with anything!
The full package is priced at £189 to hire and includes a brand new shirt to keep and stock neckwear to hire. We’ll be offering split packages too for those that just want trousers and waistcoats or just jacket etc.
It’s also available at £699 to buy for everything, again including a brand new shirt.
Remember we also do full bespoke tailoring so if you’re looking for something really special then why not hire these for the guys and let us make you a tweed suit from scratch! We’ve been doing some really cool tweed outfits lately, pics coming soon!
For obvious reasons stock is limited so make sure you book early to make sure you get it for your big day!
Let us know what you think!
