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.

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.

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.

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.

The eagerly awaited arrival of our new photo-shoot photos is finally over. I have never seen a disc unwrapped and loaded onto a computer so quickly. Rupert The Tailor staff crowded round the computer screen to take a look at our new collection of Rupert The Tailor Suits.

And they are fantastic (If I do say so myself)

Our suits looked stunning on our model Richard, and the photographer Simon Mackney was brilliant, finding the perfect locations and getting the unique shots that we wanted.

Our own Debbie Kennedy (who I’m sure some of you have spoken to on the phone when ordering) went along to help and be a stylist for a day. Which, from the photos, you can tell she was an expert at.

I have put a collection of the photos from that photo-shoot below, including the Pale Blue Boston Double Breasted Suit, the Findhorn Jumbo Corduroy Suit in Chestnut. The amazing James Morning Suit in Black with a stunning Regal Red Cravat and Handkerchief and the Copperfield Tailcoat in Purple – you can also buy this as a suit!

It’s not all about suits!

August 30th, 2013 No comments

 

Rupert the Tailor’s items have been so popular we have decided to expand the range and start our very own collection of Rupert The Tailor (RTT) Shirts.

 

We have heard from a number of our customers, that finding a shirt that is off the rail but that fits you properly is a hard task. Whether the neck size to chest measurement ratio doesn’t work, or your arms are just too long for the regular shirts.

 

It could be that you just want to have something that little bit more personal about your shirt to make it truly yours. Like a monogram on the pocket or cuff.

 

Well that is where our shirts are the perfect solution; we have used quality cotton to ensure fantastic feel and texture as well as comfort. We have designed all of the shirts in a simple way to best suit their occasion and material but all of this can be altered in the personalisation stage.

 

Business Shirts

Our business shirts consist of the Ballantyne and the Branson, these are the short and long sleeve versions of one another and are designed in a gorgeous blue and white herringbone and self-stripe. Designed with a cutaway collar, left breast pocket and single cuff (or not with the short sleeve of course) this is the perfect office shirt to keep you looking smart and sophisticated all day.

Branson and Ballantyne Shirts

We also have the classic Dimbleby Oxford shirt, made in 100% Cotton in 3 colours (White, Blue and Pink) with all the details of the oxford shirt including the button down collar.

Formal Shirts

We have a variety of formal shirts all available in 100% Cotton in Black, White and Navy. The traditional Waugh standard collar shirt with a pleated front, the Hubble Wing Collar with a fly front and double cuffs for that clean crisp look, and the Khan Mandarin shirt, this is perfect when matched with a Nehru suit and is very popular for almost any occasion.

Morning Suit Facts and Features

July 23rd, 2013 No comments

 

The Morning Coat, or Tailcoat has changed throughout the years, not only in its style but where and for what occasion it is worn.

 

A Little History

Going back to the 18th Century it is shown that the Tailcoat was greatly influenced by the uniform worn by the British Naval Officers, it was also very similar to a riding coat which was split at the back to accommodate the horse but still cover the rider.

 

It was initially called the New Market coat, and was generally worn during the Morning riding activity hence its other name the Morning Coat.

 

Moving through the 19th Century, the Morning Coat became less formal and more casual daywear. It was still less formal than the traditional Frock Coat and was considered to be less elegant and sophisticated than it is thought of today.

 

Despite its low reputation the Morning Coat had slowly evolved over the years, to become a main part of every gentleman’s wardrobe.

 

Mark at Langley Priory 009 200x300 Morning Suit Facts and Features

Franklin Morning Suit

 

Around the 1900’s the Morning Coat was a well-used garment for formal and casual occasions. It was teamed with trousers in grey striped for certain events, but the popular choice, which is still available today, is to team the jacket with the same material for the trousers and make a suit.

 

The Morning Coat over took the Frock Coat in the use for formal occasions completely around the 1930’s where George V attended a show in a Morning Coat instead of a Frock Coat, and many decided to follow his style. Another is when King Edward VII abolished the Frock Coat as court dress and replaced it with the Morning Coat.

 

Therefore the Morning Coat became the garment for formal occasions. Its style slowly changed further by popularity with a single button and peaked lapels.

 

However this was short lived, as after the war its popularity fell and it was then only seen on grooms and the upper classes. Due to the factor of grooms only wearing the item once on their wedding day the option to rent became available.

 

The Morning Coat continued to fall in popularity and is now only worn at formal occasions (weddings) and at certain Horse Races like the Royal Ascot.

 

The formal and elegant garment had lost its style and popularity with the modernising world for day to day wear. However it has held its own in the choice for Grooms and formal weddings.

 

Features and Styles

The traditional Morning Coat can be worn in various ways, for weddings and formal occasions, a matching or slightly contrasting waistcoat can be worn, light grey is a popular choice.

A more ‘fancy’ design or bolder colour could be chosen for an event like the Races.

 

It consists of peaked lapels and a single breasted one button front that meets in the middle and curves away to create the tails behind. There are 2 ornamental buttons on the lower back, these were originally used to button the tails up out of the way when travelling on horseback.

 

Mark at Langley Priory 007 200x300 Morning Suit Facts and Features

Franklin Morning Suit Tail View

 

It can be worn with matching trousers or formal wear or with grey or striped trousers for masonic or other formal occasions.

 

There are no lower hip pockets on the Morning Coat to keep the look as clean and as elegant as possible, but there is a top breast pocket.

 

Rupert The Tailor

We have created a number of our own Morning Suit and Tailcoats at Rupert The Tailor, take a look at them below with their brief explanations.

 

The Franklin Morning Suit

This is made from 100% British Wool and has all the traditional features of the morning suit, with a matching waistcoat (you can choose a contrasting colour like grey as shown in the photo) to add something a little different to the overall look. A stunning suit for a fantastic price with the perfect fit.

 

Mark at Langley Priory 004 200x300 Morning Suit Facts and Features

The George Morning Suit and the Edward Morning Suit

These two Morning Suits are very similar apart from the colours; we have designed one in Bold and Exotic colours (George) and one in subtle pastels and creams (Edward). These are perfect for matching to wedding themes or for a Wedding abroad. Both are available with matching or contrasting waistcoats, you will be spoilt for choice with over 100 colours to choose from.

A fact or two about Corduroy

July 18th, 2013 No comments

 

A little info
Corduroy is a classic material, made into suits, jackets and trousers it can be worn for any and every occasion.

Corduroy is still very popular, especially among academics and doctors. You will always see a professor at a University in a Corduroy Jacket. However it is becoming harder to find in the high street stores, and corduroy suits are now also rare online.

Traditionally Corduroy is considered to be a casual fabric, the trousers worn with a casual shirt, or the jacket with chinos. But this is now not the case, it can be worn as smart or casual, it’s all down to how to dress it and which Corduroy you buy.

 

Mark Yeldersley Chestnut 1 200x300 A fact or two about Corduroy

Findhorn Jumbo Cord Suit

 

Quick Tip: Style or Smart?
It is believed that elbow patches are all a style feature, added to give a jacket characteristic or to give it an aged look. However there is a valid reason for the adding of these extra patches to the jackets.

Corduroy looks better the older it gets, however it does shed and when the elbows wear thin and the rest of the jacket still looks fantastic, patches were added to prolong the life and add new character.

 

Which Corduroy?
Corduroy is known by its vertical ribs or Wales (this is Anglo-Saxon and means “to mark with stripes”). These Wales vary in thickness depending on the Corduroy.

16 ribs or Wales is known as pinwale or fine Corduroy, this is great for suits as the thinner cord brings a sleeker and thinner look.

8 ribs or wales is known as a wide wale or jumbo Corduroy, this is great for suits or trousers.

The thicker the wale, the more casual the item will look, the colour also tends to be richer in the thicker Cords, but that doesn’t mean the fine Corduroy is dull (it’s not our Rupert The Tailor fine Corduroys are stunning!)

Also, the thicker the man the thinner the Corduroy should be, Jumbo Corduroy adds volume whilst Needle Corduroy slims. A skinnier guy might prefer the Jumbo Corduroy to add that extra big of umpf.

Caldley Needle Cord Trousers

 

Quick Tip: Washing
Remember to always wash your Corduroy on the wrong side!

 

What to wear when?
For the smart look…

A Needle Corduroy makes a fantastic suit; its soft look is perfect with a shirt and having it in a mole or tan will make you stand out against the black, greys and charcoals.

Take a look at our Rupert The Tailor Morar Needle Corduroy Suit

Morar Needle Suit

 

For the in-between smart and casual look…

A casual Needle or Jumbo Corduroy jacket is perfect, matched with a smart shirt and chinos to complete the outfit.

Our Rupert The Tailor Kinloch 8 Wale Corduroy Jacket is perfect for this.

 

Mark at Yeldersley 201 Corn 200x300 A fact or two about Corduroy

For the casual look…

A pair of comfy Corduroy trousers teamed with a casual shirt is the perfect outfit for those family events.

Take a look at our Rupert The Tailor Caldey Corduroy Trousers here.

 

Mark at Yeldersley 151 200x300 A fact or two about Corduroy

Caldley Needle Corduroy Trousers

 

Quick Tip: Cord or Velvet?

Velvet is basically Corduroy without the wales, so don’t forget that a black Needle Corduroy blazer could be mistaken for a black velvet sports jacket, to stop this choose navy or a thicker wale.

The Nehru Suit, Facts and Tips

July 12th, 2013 No comments

There are many different styles of suit, from the traditional Double Breasted and Single Breasted to the not so common Nehru.

 

The Nehru Suit is a classic Asian style; it is longer than a regular jacket, with a mandarin collar and traditionally has no vent. It also has 5 or more buttons down the front for fastening.

 

Mark at Yeldersley 050 200x300 The Nehru Suit, Facts and Tips

Pelham Nehru Suit

 

The significant difference between the Nehru jacket and a normal suit jacket is the collar. A Nehru suit has a mandarin collar which is a short and stand up collar that doesn’t have lapels. As the collar covers up any place to display a shirt beneath a Mandarin shirt would be the ideal item to wear with this suit.

 

The Mandarin shirt has a similar short stand-up collar, that is done up by a stylish button at the top, you can get these with single or double cuffs, and some even come with changeable top buttons so you can make it smart or casual for any occasion.

 

NehruSuit Bold Teal 200x300 The Nehru Suit, Facts and Tips

Harrison Nehru Suit

 

Nehru Suits can be worn for any occasion, they are smart and sophisticated for formal events or weddings, but can also be worn for family occasions and casual outings.

 

You can even pair the jacket with a different pair of trousers to tone it down for the causal look.

 

It is getting harder to find the Nehru suit on the high street and in stores, this is why Rupert The Tailor has designed their own version, take a look at that below. It is available in the traditional colours, in smart pastels or exotic bolder colours(see links below).
