Want to know how to stay warm and still look smart?? Read on…

September 14th, 2011 No comments

Looking smart usually comes at a price (and it’s not always to do with your wallet.)

As the colder weather draws in, the want for layers increases. But just chucking another t-shirt on under your shirt is never really an option. It ruffles up under your shirt, or it doesn’t look or feel right.

So here is your help for finding those extra layers and different items of clothing to help you stay warm whilst keeping your sharp, sophisticated look.

Now it all begins with what’s underneath.

Suitsmen have a range of underwear, which also includes the Wolsey Classic Therrmal Underwear. Available in the natural colour, they have mock interlocked fabric and are brushed inside to trap air and retain heat.

To match the Classic Long Johns, we also have the t-shirts and vests.

Matching the Long Johns, the Wolsey Short Sleeved Thermal T-shirt has the traditional mock interlock fabric with the brushed inside to trap air and retain heat, keeping both your upper and lower body warm.

Suitsmen now also sell the same thermal t-shirt with the Morley label. Not only is this exactly the same item of clothing, but it is also the new rebranded name of Wolsey.

Now if short sleeves are not for you, and you want long sleeves under your shirt, Suitsmen also sell the Wolsey Long Sleeved Thermal Vest. This, again has the same features and fabric as the short sleeve versions, it just has a bit for cover for your arms.

Having all the thermals on will not stop the cold if your suit lets out the heat easily. We sell a range of heavy weighted suits, perfect for the colder climates and seasons.

The smart outer layers.

Our heaviest being around the 510g mark, this is ideal for the colder months.

Examples consist of the Torre Men’s Lounge Herringbone Suit.
This single breasted, two buttoned suit combines a classic and timeless feel, whilst keeping in the priceless heat.
It also comes with Teflon protected material, helping to keep your suit looking its best for longer.

We also have the Men’s Herringbone Morning Suit from Torre. This again is one of the 510g suits, not only ensuring warmth but comfort and sophistication with the one button jacket being made from 100% Wool.

It is also available in three colours, Navy Herringbone, Black Herringbone and Grey Herringbone. However, the grey only comes in a 420g weight.

The next weight down from 510g is 450g, with the Brook Taverner Morning Suit.
Made from 100% Pure New Wool, this one buttoned, double breasted tailcoat originates from the 19th Century.

Warmth can be found in any suit, whether you are opting for one of the heavier weight jackets to keep out the cold chill, or are more of a thermals fan. You can find a suit to suit your need, with the accessories to go along with it, keeping you warm AND smart!

What Trench Coat For You??

September 13th, 2011 No comments

Which Trench coat??


Choosing the right Trench Coat for the coming winter months is on the ‘to do’ list of nearly every man.

But it’s ‘which’ Trench Coat that has them pondering over the various types and styles.

Now all Trench Coats are similar but the ones that offer that little bit extra are the ones that catch your eye and add that bit of sophistication to your look!


Suitsmen offers a range of four Trench Coats, a style to suit everyone.

From the Grenfell range we have the Russell Trench Coat and the Windsor Trench Coat. Both are the ideal travel raincoats.

They are hand made in Britain and are of exceptional quality.

Made with 100% cotton, these coats always hang nicely, are always comfortable to wear and offer FULL protection from the elements.

Both have features including an integral belt with a leather buckle, buttoned centre vents, epaulettes to deflect heavy rain and an extra brass neck catch for extra weather proofing, plus a lot more extras including a variety of colours.

However, the Russell Trench Coat has one feature that puts it just ahead of its brother.

Instead of housing a 100% cotton lining like the Windsor, the Russell has a zip out wool lining which hangs to just 4 inches of the bottom of the coat. Not only does this add an extra layer to help in the colder climates but it also adds to the look, feel and the sophistication of this handmade coat.


If all of that is just what you need, but is out of your price range, then the Brook Taverner Derwent Trench Coat will be the ultimate choice.

Not only does it have many of the same features as the handmade Trench Coats; the removable wool mix lining, centre vent for easy mobility and knee length for that protection against the weather.

It is made of 59% cotton, 34% Polyester and 7% Polyurethane, Teflon coated and shower proof, and is available in black, navy and honey.

This coat becomes the superb value trench coat.


Now for those with a more ‘wild side’ the Woodland Leather Black Trench Coat may be just the thing.

This trench is full length offering all the protection that is wanted.

It is made with 100% of the softest NAPPA leather in the classic black, has a full polyester lining including reinforced buttons.

The quality and style of the Black Leather Trench Coat will give an edge to anyone with one.

With the colder months moving in fast, it’s time to start thinking about which trench is the one for you.

Whether its handmade sophistication or the ultimate a style gained from 100% leather, there IS a Trench Coat for everyone.
