To the uninitiated, the world of men’s tailoring – in particular having a made-to-measure or bespoke suit made – is a little mysterious. While the fundamentals of the process are the same, the environment we’ve created and our very special team are worlds apart from the old-fashioned ‘stuffy’ image of tailors that comes to mind[…]

As a tailor and champion of impeccable style, I truly feel very strongly about jacket length and need to get this off my chest. I rarely rant (publicly) so this post is my way of ridding the world of this awful fashion faux pas. When I see a gentleman wearing a jacket that is too[…]

When you mention the words ‘suit hire’ people tend to envisage an ill-fitting, poorly made and maintained suit that looks as though twenty people wore it in the past week alone. Previous experiences, either your own or of someone you know, may have left you with some doubts as to whether it really is a[…]

While it isn’t always the first colour you think of when it comes to suits, I have completely fallen in love with it. Summer or winter, green just works. To clarify, I’m not referring to bright lime or fluorescent green: I’m smitten with shades of sage, jade, deep forest and emerald. Initially, it can be[…]

Alexandra and the team are delighted to have opened the doors of the new Shoreditch store. We’ve been asked for over a year now why we don’t do hires in London, so we have responded with our new, sophisticated Shoreditch store.

It’s well and truly wedding season. For those of you attending the nuptials of your nearest and dearest, it’s time to up your style game. The outfit you choose says a lot about your relationship with the happy couple and shows respect for the importance of the occasion. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have[…]

It’s one of the most anticipated sport, and social, events in the UK; and positively encourages the excessive quaffing of Pimm’s, champagne, and strawberries and cream. Yes, you guessed it – Wimbledon is on. Steeped in tennis history and tradition, dressing the part for Wimbledon is as important now as it ever was. Unless you’re[…]

There’s no place to really pull out all the fashion stops like Royal Ascot (20 – 24 June). It’s the pinnacle of class and style so, understandably, they enforce strict dress codes and issue their own style guide. While elegance and sophistication are the order of the day, that doesn’t mean you have to hide[…]

Still searching for a gift for Father’s Day? Fashion and accessories are always a solid gift choice for Father’s Day. A good quality item is something your father (or husband) can cherish for years.

We are quickly approaching that most frustrating time of year when the seasons swing with wild abandon between the crisp winter and the watery, yet pleasingly warmer, spring. Occasionally we may be graced with the sun…maybe. So how does one dress in this madness? Layering! The trick to layering, particularly for business wear, is that[…]

To celebrate the launch of the new line of limited edition Alexandra Wood shirts, we continue our month of shirt advice and inspiration. You probably don’t give it much thought.
