What matches your personal brand – a suit or a suite?

1 December 2013

It’s fair to say that dress codes have changed dramatically in recent years and generally we see a more casual approach to dressing. Perhaps this is most evident in the workplace where we see a diminishing amount of men wearing shirt and tie, or even a suit. Is it a bad thing? No, it’s fashion, and fashion changes all the time. However, just because you’ve hung the pinstripe in the back of the wardrobe doesn’t mean you no longer have the need for a good tailor.

In fact, we would argue that you have an even greater need now that you have the freedom to really express yourself! What you wear says a lot about you. It’s one of the first things people notice when meeting you, and the first impression is the one that lasts. It also demonstrates that you look after yourself, you take pride in your appearance and how others view you – it is very much part of your ‘personal brand’. Handmade clothing will add a touch of class to your appearance, but it’s more than that – there’s the ‘feel good’ factor too.

Simply knowing you’re wearing good quality clothes that truly express your personality will immediately raise your confidence, this reflects in your posture and demeanour, and your approach to those you meet. Yes, there are good garments on the high street, but do they really make you feel special? There’s nothing quite like handmade clothes – garments that have been crafted specially for you – they have soul.

It may or may not be a suit; it might be a jacket, waistcoat, blazer, shirt, coat, trousers, or indeed a combination of them. The choice is yours, we will create a suit or very flexible suite specially for you. At Andrew Brookes Tailoring, acquiring tailored clothing is much more than simply taking your measurements, quickly choosing a cloth, and being on your way until it is ready. We want to get to know you; what you like and what you dislike, we need to get a real feel for your personal brand. Only then can we make garments truly individual and special to you.

So, our particular brand of tailoring is about making clothes that perfectly fit more than just your body, it’s about making clothes that fit your lifestyle and bring out the very best in you.
