Spring 2015 – Bow Ties!

bow tie cover page spring 2015

As we are all aware now it’s actually possible to go out without a jacket/coat in the UK now, which is good news – it’s spring time! So how do we go about tackling spring in terms of our wardrobe. Well first things, first, we insert more colour into our outfits. Next we start to slowly move our thick clothes, the wool/tweed suits only get worn occasionally. Now that we don’t wear coats anymore, people can see our shirt and tie a lot more, so it’s time to show off a little and boast some beautiful bow ties.

The best thing about bow ties is, they can be worn casually or to events (not to work though.) Most of the time bow ties are quite expensive if you are looking for something thats not just a plain boring bow tie. Here’s where I come in, check out My Tuxedo. Without a shadow of a doubt, My Tuxedo is probably among the best places you could buy retail suits & accessories for a great price.

Moss Bros Review

moss bros review

If I was to sum up this Moss Bros review in one word, it would be ‘brilliant’. What can I say, without a doubt I absolutely love Moss Bros Great company, great retail stores, great staff. Moss Bros know just what they’re doing. It’s almost like walking into a privately owned tailor for a bespoke suit. Obviously it’s not as good as going into a tailor’s for a bespoke suit but you get my point.

If I judge them based on their diversity of suits they would do very well. They have everyday work suits, evening wear and casual suits. Sometimes however, their diversity of suits lets them down as they have some crazy silver and gold suits – yuck.

The quality of their suits is pretty much standard as you’d expect from any standard high street retailer. Moss Bros’s designer suits are of a much better quality than the rest though. I bought my first suit from them 4 years ago, and so far, I am yet to rip or wear away any of the fabric in my suits.

If you’re anything like me, (I have a weird body shape), the majority of the suits you buy wont fit you (perfectly) as most suits are shaped for “normal body shaped people.” Great thing about Moss Bros is they 99% of the time have a qualified Tailor to make the suit YOURS!

Moss suits are consistent, they have very strong stand out suits and very nicely fitted suits. You know what you’re getting from them. You have the choice of hiring a suit or buying it, I have never hired a suit in my life but I know some people are into that so go for it if you need an emergency suit.

They have some luxurious brands such as Calvin Klein, Ben Sherman, French Connection, DKNY, Ted Baker, Canali, Zegna and Cerruti, these are all available in store and online. Not only do they offer fantastic suits at great prices, they also have extremely nice accessories and shoes. I will be selecting a few to write about in the future so stay tuned.
