I feel the weather is so cold right now it’s unbelievable. What scares me is that reports are saying it’s about to get even colder. I was born and raised in London, Ive always lived here, so you’d think I’d be used to it by now – I’m not. Tailoring is a passion of mine. […]
I was asked about what inspired the way I put my outfit together each day. I think through most of the getting dressed process subconsciously. My first thought is about who I’ll be meeting that day. Typically the older generation tend to be traditional & the younger generation contemporary. My style remains the same but […]
Evening wear is a key feature of December. We all get dressed and attend dinners, galas and AGMs. The Concilium Search AGM was one of the finest displays of evening wear. Morts & More were honoured to attend and witness the celebration of the years successes, and the plans for the future. We have been […]
Wearing a Knitted tie is a bold statement. A simple look, yet nonetheless bold. The reason for this is due to the normality and ubiquitousness of the silk tie with menswear. From wedding to the corporate world, the silk tie is a standard staple accessory. Most men are quite simple when it comes to the […]
For as long as I can remember, men have always worn suits. Ok let me not be blasé with my opening line. Since the 17th century the suit has been a staple of the male wardrobe. However it may not have been in the form that we wear now (picture long coats and cravats). The […]
Slim Lapels (Mike Ross) first started coming to my attention the good part of 6-7 years ago. They were pushed heavily by the hight fashion shops such as Next and Topman. Therefore the skinny lapel became a popular part of the younger generation suit wearers. As a result many class suits with slim lapels as […]
In our last post we touched on Collar Pins (Collar Bars), so in sticking with the old school vibe, we touch on mens suspenders (braces). More common than the collar pin yet still not a regular feature in most men’s wardrobes. The male suspender first came around in 1820 when men typically wore high waisted […]
If you’re on Instagram (which as of April 2017, boasts 700 Million actively monthly users) and you’re interested in men’s tailoring, then I would happily bet a large sum that you’ve come across an image of Daniele Zaccone. Also know as Danielre (by his Instagram handle), his images can be seen reposted and shared across […]
I’ve been seeing these downs for a while now and simply thought of them as a fashion accessory. That was until I actually walked into uniqlo and asked questions about the ‘ultra light down jacket’ they stock. I was told about its construction and mighty fill power (the stuff that keeps you warm).
Traditionally they were designed to protect the bottom of the trouser from wet, muddy floors during periods of bad weather. Some men may continue to wear them for that reason but it’s safe to say the majority wear them for the style.
