At least our measuring isn’t this hard!

January 28th, 2014 No comments

How hard is it to measure yourself for a Made to Measure Suit?

What would your answer be?

 

So hard it’s practically impossible.

I’d be able to do it but I don’t know if I could get the measurements right.

I wouldn’t know where to start? I don’t even own a tape measure.

I’d give it a go; it can’t be that hard right?

 

mad 300x168 At least our measuring isn’t this hard!

Measuring is not this hard!

 

Measuring is not as hard as it seems, and with our help you cannot go wrong!

 

Our Measurements

All of the measurements we need are asked for on the website with clear instructions, diagrams and videos of how to measure and where abouts on your body to measure. We also give an estimate of what we believe should be close to your measurement.

 

(These estimates are made from calculations including your Height, Weight and Chest measurements – they are generalised so not necessarily right for you, but they won’t be far out)

 

Tricks and Tips

The main things that go wrong with measuring are simple and very easy to do.

1)      Measuring too tightly. You don’t need to pull the tape measure tight; it should be loose enough to fit a finger between the tape and yourself. You should be able to move it.

2)      Follow the diagrams and measure around the body part shown. Taking your thigh measurement just above your knee is not taking your thigh measurement.

3)      If you have any other information you want to pass onto us, for example how high you want your waistband, or how long you want the fly, there is an additional notes box near the checkout. You can even add photos of you in your favourite clothing with that items measurements, to show us what fit you like.

 

Have a Go

So it’s not hard to order Bespoke by measuring yourself at home! So take a look on the website www.rupertthetailor.co.uk and find the perfect item for you. You can order FREE swatches and take a look at the materials as well as receive a FREE tape measure.

 

There is no reason for you to say no! Just give it a go. You’ll be amazed how easy it is.

 

Don’t forget we are open 9am to 5pm and can be contacted by phone on 01335 361287, by using the online chat on the website or by emailing here.

 

You can also contact us through our Facebook Account, Twitter Page and Pinterest Boards. These are also regularly updated with information and new products!

The Wonders of the Imagination

December 19th, 2013 No comments

 

Due to being able to make anything you want. Yes anything. We have had some stunning creations make their way through the office.

 

An amazing Zoot Suit in a grey and blue Prince of Wales check. This was the first Zoot Suit I had seen, and I was in awe of its design. They are something you don’t see every day, and I couldn’t wait to see it in the flesh, or material I suppose.

 

The next suit through the door that caught my eye was a stunning bright crimson red Morar Needle Corduroy Suit. Perfect for this festive season!

 

DSC 8264 200x300 The Wonders of the Imagination

Corduroy Suits are available in Jumbo Corduroy and Needle Corduroy

DSC 9445 200x300 The Wonders of the Imagination

 

We also had a Gentleman who wanted something completely different from anything on RupertTheTailor.co.uk, he wanted shorts. Bright red shorts! With a matching Portland Nehru Suit Jacket. So that’s what we made him, and it was perfect, he looked amazing!

But my favourite of the year has to be the Double Breasted Festively Coloured Silk Patterned Waistcoat that a Son has bought his Father for Christmas! It’s so bright it added a golden glow to our office – literally. Utterly amazing, and I hope he loves it!

 

IMG 7619 200x300 The Wonders of the Imagination

Colourful Patterned Waistcoat

 

Our Tailor pulled out all the stops for this fantastic present. The covered buttons were made out of the waistcoat material and matched perfectly, and as you can see from the photos below he has matched the pattern up exactly where the Double Breasted front overlaps.

 

After a quick chat with the Son, we decided that just choosing a matching lining back with a waist adjuster would be the perfect match, any other colour may have been a little over powering.

Are You Ready?

December 10th, 2013 No comments

 

Christmas is only 15 days away now, and the shops are becoming the most daunting place to go on a weekend.

 

The hustle and bustle down high streets, fighting through the mass to get to the shelves (or even in the shop door). Finding that everywhere you go the item you need is constantly sold out! – You didn’t realise it was actually that popular.

 

You start to dread the weekends coming up to Christmas, just for the factor of having to go out there again, the frustration of getting stuck behind another of the world’s slowest walkers, or those who feel it’s perfectly find to stop dead right in front of a streaming crowd.

 

Have you ever tried to fit between cars in a parking lot with 700 bags of shopping – it’s pretty much impossible.

 

So SuitsMen have decided to make your Christmas, this Christmas, the most relaxing, by letting us worry about getting the items you want to you. All we need you to do is choose what you want.

 

bonfireimageboxnew 300x157 Are You Ready?

Stress Free Christmas

 

“What about delivery charges?” we hear you call.
Simple – there are none, and you get it in 3-4 working days. (Or next day for a tiny fee)

 

“What if it’s not the right thing?”
No problem, Freepost returns mean easy refunds and exchanges.

 

So there really is no reason to go on fighting through the crowds. Queuing at the tills, or searching that fifth shop for that one item which is strangely hard to find. Just buy everything you need from us!

 

We have everything from Men’s Suits and Jackets to Coats and Trousers. Colourful Shirts with colourful Ties. Assortments of Socks and Underwear. Bags and Bow Ties. Wallets and Waistcoats.

 

Order online through www.suitsmen.co.uk or call us on 01335 361287 and we can place your order for you over the phone.

 

Like our Facebook Page to keep up to date with new products, offers and promotions you won’t hear about any other way.

The Anchorman Suit in Stunning Red, why Rupert The Tailor can help.

November 25th, 2013 No comments

Ron Burgundy is a style icon, not because of his amazing hair and traditional mustache, but for the flamboyant colours he displays through his clothing choices.

Now any fan of Anchorman will know about the Red, Blue and Brown Suits, those who have never seen the film, well firstly you NEED to watch this masterpiece, secondly take a look at the images below and you will know what we mean by style icon!!

RB 6 300x198 The Anchorman Suit in Stunning Red, why Rupert The Tailor can help.

Pale Blue Suit from Anchorman

From the films and images we can see that Ron goes for the traditional 2 button single breasted suit, with 2 front flap pockets and a standard breast pocket.

The bold blue suit has pick stitching around the edges of the lapels, and the red suit has different cuff buttons, with a fold over flap and button rather than the standard cuff buttons.

The hype around the 2nd Anchorman film has been heightened by the Red Suit once again making an appearance in the Official Trailer as well as the brand new 70+ adverts for the US Dodge Durango.

RB 8 300x133 The Anchorman Suit in Stunning Red, why Rupert The Tailor can help.

Taken From Anchorman 2 Official Trailer

But there has been a change!

The addition of a matching 5 button waistcoat! Not only does this add another classic dimension to the already eye catching suit, but it makes it classier and more sophisticated.

Have you ever wanted to be a little like Ron Burgundy, have a suit in pale blue, red, burgundy or brown to be a bit different from the rest of the crowd. Or do you want another colour all together and make a statement in purple, yellow or pink?

Finding these on the high street is nearly impossible, but here at Rupert The Tailor we have every colour under the sun, with over 100 to choose from we can make you the perfect Anchorman Suit.

We can make anything you want, in any style and any colour.

All you have to do is call us on 01335 361287, email us here, have a chat with us on our online chat on the website or just order online at www.rupertthetailor.co.uk

Why do socks wear out so quickly?

November 13th, 2013 No comments

Do you remember the days when socks used to last for so much longer? And they were warmer in winter.

Well, it’s not because you have a Rose Tinted view of them, but because socks have indeed changed.

The old style warm, longer lasting socks were not only made in Britain, but they were also made using wool. Wool is a wonder fabric. It keeps you warm in winter, and cool in Summer. This is because as a natural product it holds air pockets to insulate, and wicks away sweat to keep you cool.

 

RupertTheTailor 178x60 Why do socks wear out so quickly?

So what’s changed?

Well, socks today are made using cotton. Cotton wicks away sweat, but does not insulate as well as wool and the cheaper the sock, the lower the quality of cotton. This means that the staple length is shorter which means that the cotton wears out quicker. Well, we all know how long a sheep’s coat is, and so how long a length of wool is so it is not surprising that a wool sock will last so much longer.

Fortunately it is still possible to find wool sock. You do pay more for them, but they last so much longer. We have developed a short sock and a knee length sock at Rupert The Tailor. The Rupert The Tailor Red Top Sock and the Rupert The Tailor Shortie Sock, these are made from wool nylon, in a huge range of sizes (After all, it’s no good having a sock that’s too big or too small, that’s just uncomfortable).

It’s not just a plain sock either, as we have added reinforcement in the heel and the toe and made the toe seam the best available.

IMG 5358 200x300 Why do socks wear out so quickly?

Rupert The Tailor Red Top Socks

A bit about the toe seam

For many years, a linked toe has been considered the best to have. It is almost invisible, and requires someone to literally pick up each loop in a sock toe on a needle. That’s usually 168 on every sock. As you can imagine, the chance of missing one is very high, and the cost of doing it, well, that’s high too.

So we use a lock stitch. It’s the more practical method and ensures greater strength. The disadvantage is that you can end up with a large seam right on the top of your toes. Our socks dont. We have improved the seam so that it is just as strong, but much flatter. The best of both worlds.

So treat yourselves or a loved one to a proper sock this Christmas. After all, it’s going to be a cold one!

 

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions by phone on 01335 361287, by email here or by using the online chat on the website.

 

(These socks are also available on the Rupert The Tailor sister site SuitsMen)
