Improve the performance of your suit with Aquarret™ technology.
King & Allen customers can rest assured that their suits are stitched to such a high standard that if they look after them and rotate them regularly they will last a number of years. But what if something goes wrong? A coffee/red wine spill could ruin a suit completely. A considerable amount of time, money and energy (from both you and us!) could be tarnished in an instant. That’s why it gives us great pleasure to introduce, in conjunction with Holland & Sherry, Aquarret™ Technology. Aquarret is a brand new approach to cloth protection that can be applied to almost the entire H&S collection – and tailored by us to create the ultimate bespoke garment.
“Aquarret is a specially developed finish that forms a high performance stain resistance around the fibres of the fabric without affecting the luxurious feel of the cloth.”
This is not the spray on protection which is only effective until the first dry clean – EVERY FIBRE is encapsulated. Clever stuff.
Aquarret uses nanotechnology to ensure that coffee or wine that’s poured on the cloth will simply bead up and roll off. Even ground-in stains can be removed by a specialist dry cleaner – ensuring that the cloth stays looking newer for longer.
For a small surcharge Aquarret can be applied to almost the entire King & Allen cloth range. This is because each cloth length is cut especially for you (‘bespoken for’) so the process is applied at source. If you’re looking for a workaday suit that you want to last well we highly recommend this remarkable technology.
We realise that making your suits last longer could actually be bad for business as we will not see you so frequently! However, at K&A we have always aimed to provide the best value for money of any tailor – and we believe Aquarret will only enhance this promise.

November is World Vegan Month, when vegans around the world celebrate their lifestyle choice and champion others to do the same. And it seems more and more of us are making the switch. In 2018, there were 3.5 million registered vegans in the UK, up from around 540,00 in 2016, according to a study by The Vegan Society, which just happens to be celebrating its 75th birthday in 2019.Style Tips & Advice Celebrity Style
When it comes to style superstars, there is none more seminal, more chameleon-like and more innovative than David Bowie. As you may remember, we included the iconic star's ever-evolving look in our recent blog post on the suits that rocked. That’s why we were over the moon when Professor of Film and Cultural Studies, Dr Will Brooker, approached us to make a copy of Bowie’s legendary mustard-yellow suit.Celebrity Style King & Allen News
Creating the perfect suit starts with a high-quality fabric. That’s why we work closely with renowned luxury cloth merchant, Holland & Sherry, to make sure we have the world’s best possible cloths available for our clients. While we place great value on traditional methods – for example some of Holland & Sherry’s pattern weaving hasn’t changed in 200 years – we also believe in keeping one eye firmly on the very latest bespoke tailoring technologies.Style History King & Allen News
