The King & Allen Guide to: Designer Suits

A ‘designer suit’ by definition is one that has been created by a designer, but the phrase has become synonymous with fitted, stylish, modern suits. At King & Allen we define a suit as a ‘designer suit’ when all the contributing factors that go into it have combined successfully: the fit is right; the cut is right; the cloth is right; the style is right. The suit has elevated beyond the realms of a practical work tool or a smart outfit for events. The suit has distinguished itself (and therefore its wearer) to a higher, more stylish level.

What does a bespoke tailor wear to his own wedding? Part 2

My journey began in Primrose Hill, at the beautiful house of one of London’s true modern dandies – Guy Hills. Guy runs a very unique cloth company – Dashing Tweeds. The house is a true reflection of the brand – the lounge was adorned with beautiful furniture upholstered in his cloths and downstairs was a recently built penny farthing bicycle, next to a cardboard box full of ‘Dashing Tweeds’ hand-made flat caps and customized Converse All Stars. Next to that: rolls and rolls of the most innovative and creative cloth designs I had ever seen. One particular cloth stood out to me, and I had made up my mind before I left the house.
