Build a Bespoke Wardrobe You Can Be Proud Of

If you wear suits for work, you should really have a different suit for every day of the working week. To some, this might seem like a lot, however, this allows you to rest your suits between wears so that they stay in good condition and therefore, last much longer.

How to Wear Tweed

We, at King & Allen, have always appreciated tweed. There’s something about this heritage cloth that appeals to us, as lovers of classic menswear.

Tweed is a stylish cloth for the modern man.

His style is very much a reflection of this desire to show his breadth of character. He’s prepared to take a risk and show some range, from conservative blues and greys to bolder checks and accessories.
