DRESSING FOR THE OCCASION
Looking your best for special occasions can be difficult, knowing what to wear is stressful in itself. Whether it’s your own wedding or you have a long-anticipated job interview, we are here to take the stress away by guiding you through the most appropriate options. Robert Old offers seasonal collections of ‘ready to wear’ tailoring options from which you can select from prestigious brands such as Belvest and our very own exclusive Robert Old ranges.
Deciding what to wear for your wedding day is just one of hundreds of decisions that both bride and groom have to contemplate and it can be a minefield of tailoring faux pas when it comes to picking an outfit. At Robert Old we are here to guide the Groom and the wedding party through styling an outfit that suits your special occasion.
Nowadays groomsmen are too often adorned in rented tails with matching block colour accessories. In most cases they do not fit and nor are they flattering. We encourage a more personalised approach that is individually ‘tailored’ to your wedding.
If you aren’t the formal type and would prefer a more casual occasion add some fun with a linen, wool and silk Jacket in a seasonal shade with pair of tailored cotton trousers in a complimentary colour.
A TIP FOR WINTER
What better in winter than to wear an outfit created using vibrant British Tweed. We suggest a three piece made to measure suit, trousers finished with turn ups and topped off with a knitted tie.
GO FOR THREE
Often a two-piece suit may not feel special enough, so why not try a waist coat. With more grooms choosing this we would say it is ‘fashionable’. The advantage comes when the formalities have passed and the party kicks off in the evening the jacket has been ‘carefully hung’ and festivities are well under way. A waist coat can provide a smarter look whilst not being over the top. Looking sharp at work or those special events it pays to look the ‘cut above’ field.
MADE TO MEASURE BUSINESS SUITS
In business the casual Friday look appeared to have become so popular at one point that it threatened to become casual Every day; recently however there has been a defiant resurgence in professionals returning to tailored suits. The benefits of wearing a well-tailored suit mean that you not only look the part but that you stand out against the sea of unbuttoned shirts and scruffy ill-fitting chinos. A beautifully tailored suit is a particularly helpful confidence booster for an important interview which could well kick start your career. Whatever your level in business we can at least make you look your best, you will have to do the rest!
Break the Mould
Don’t be afraid to step away from conventional colours such as charcoal and navy, depending on your profession you may have room to stamp your personality on what you wear.
To make your investment worthwhile when ordering a made to measure suit, we advise ordering a second pair of trousers which will add longevity bringing a better return on your investment.
EVENING WEAR / BLACK TIE EVENTS
Special occasions are more easily enjoyed by looking and feeling your best, be it a formal dinner or a star-studded film premiere. At Robert Old, we stock a fine collection of classic tuxedos from designers such as Belvest and our very own Tailored-in-Italy range. However, if you desire something extra special why not consider creating a ‘made to measure’ one-of-a-kind outfit, such as a velvet or jacquard jacket and contrasting trousers that will certainly make you stand out from the crowd?
TAILORING FOR THE RACES & COUNTRY ATTIRE
Country attire does not need to be an excuse to dress down. Here at Robert Old we host a large collection of guest cloths which are available to you from the likes of Harrisons of Edinburgh, W.Bill, Fox Brothers, Joshua Ellis, Hardy Minnis and many more. From a heavy weight Shetland overcoat right the way through to a light weight cashmere sports jacket, the options are endless.
