The Royal International

July 12th, 2012 No comments

The Royal International Horse Show or the RIHS is one of the most prestigious Horse Shows in the world.

Held over 5 days (17th – 22nd July 2012) and with competitions putting some of the best riders in the country together, it is certainly worth watching.

Capture1 300x187 The Royal International

Whether you are there supporting a friend or idol, or if you are there for a day out with friends to enjoy the atmosphere, shops and exciting competitions nothing could perfect more than the outfit you wear.

Now some will think that the equestrian world revolves around Tweed and Wellingtons.

This isn’t entirely true.

You will certainly see tweed.

But if you are unsure of what to wear and need a bit of help, SuitsMen have put together some items that can make you look great, keep you warm and dry whilst looking stylish.


Now tweeds don’t have to be shooting coats and flat caps. Why not try the couple below from the Brook Taverner collection.

The Ayr Scottish Tweed Jacket is made from Pure Saxony Wool with a classic fit it is a gorgeous single breasted jacket. Matched with dark, smart trousers you can’t go wrong.

Ayr 199x300 The Royal International

The Porthleven Jacket is 100% Pure New Wool and available in the subtle Gold Check or Olive Check. Perfect or this event.

If you prefer to stay away from the traditional tweed colours try the Coverack Jacket. Again 100% Pure New Wool with a tailored fit, it is perfect, especially when it comes in Grey Herringbone and Olive Herringbone

However here at SuitsMen we suggest the Brook Taverner Cotton Twill Jeans, available in four colours and made from 100% Super Soft Cotton.

Or why not try the Gurteen Hadleigh Corduroy trousers, 100% Cotton and made of a classic wale cord.

Now at the RIHS it either shines with sun or pours down with rain. And we want you to be prepared. So we have put a couple of the John Partridge collection coats below.

The Brooke coat is a military inspired lightweight coat, great for the sunny days where you need a slight cover up.

Brooke 2134 208x300 The Royal International

Mayfield Hall Photoshoot

March 1st, 2012 No comments

A big thank you to Mike for letting us use Mayfield Hall near Ashbourne for our latest photoshoot.  Mike has the most stunning Bed rooms available.

Mark Amy Mayfield Hall 030  200x300 Mayfield Hall Photoshoot

British Made Trench coat

Very comfortable, and a glorious specification. The Lord of Mayfield (Mike) offer Bed and Breakfast, have a look at his website for details

Some of the pictures should show the true elegance of the Hall, but there is nothing like a visit to fully appreciate some of the finer features. Inside the Hall, the panelled bedroom has a fireplace that is dated 1608 and beneath the Hall are cellars and passages reputedly dating from 1157.

This Time Debbie was involved, and her ability to put colours and styles together, has I think revolutionised what we can offer.  Theresa will shortly be writing about some of the matching outfits we put together this time, and our next Shoot in April, we will be putting together more outfits for you, so you can be sure that items you select from our site will match nicely.

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.
