A History of Women's Tailoring: Part Two

In part two of King & Allen’s celebration of women’s tailoring, we continue our romp through the 20th century, highlighting the key suiting styles, as well as the people and events that had the greatest influence on them. Beginning with the austerity of World War II, we chart the rise of women’s liberation, and hemlines, in the sixties, through the excesses of the power-dressing eighties to the dawning of the new, 21st century.

Announcing the Winner of The King & Allen Photo Competition 2018!

Just over a month ago, we invited King & Allen customers to enter our annual Photo Competition. Entrants had to post a photo of themselves on social media, wearing a King & Allen suit, using the hashtag #shootthesuit and tagging us. The judging process was really difficult, with a wide range of fantastic pictures, showing off our customer’s sartorial flair. We narrowed it down to six finalists. It was then up to our Facebook community to choose the winner. We had hundreds of votes but eventually we had to count the likes and find out the winner!

The King & Allen Charity Appeal

As you may know from our Facebook and Twitter posts, King & Allen were delighted to be presented with a letter of recognition from the charity Mapis. They run a service called ‘Suit2Go,’ which provides suits to disadvantaged men, in an effort to help them back into employment. Although these men may have received advice on training and skills, very often they are disheartened with the interview stage, as they have nothing appropriate to wear.
