Brendan his thoughts and update on the Cinema Audio Awards

"Since discovering IDB or 'the Ladies' as they are affectionately referred to by my wife and I, I have found the high street second best in many aspects of shopping for clothes. 

 I had a stunning suit made for my wedding day! The basic ideas we had for colour and style were further honed by Sue and Liz to meet our exact needs. I have had numerous shirts from IDB a number of which were chosen by Sue and Liz themselves based on their experience of my style wants, personality and job requirements, and all costing less than a designer high street brand. 

 It's always very comforting to know that when I buy form IDB the advice is based on principals of style not 'here today gone tomorrow' fashion tips."

Cheers Brendan!

Casino Royale eat your heart out

The lovely Jeff in response to our last blog sent us this email and pic:-

6'9" of Gorgeousness - a phrase that I have not heard since the days of wandering into Nightclubs after Saturdays on the field.  How times flies by.  Must say the Jeff Moore specials are wonderful - for a bloke who wears clothes hard, they are extremely durable and look good, either repairing the outboard in Cornwall or at dinner in Le Manoir.

ID shirts are the only shirts I own buy 11 today - I have!!!

PS The jackets are simply superb be it tweeds or blazers.

PPS Thinking about it the dinner jackets are very exceptional too - but so are the suits.

Busy getting Ready for the Sale this Weekend

Well Easter has come and gone and boy have we been busy getting ready for the Sample Sale this weekend and next (10/11  and  17/18 April). As well as organising our amazing special offers on blazers and summer suits.

It is so easy to get summer dressing and grooming wrong! Liz and I are totally agreed (along with most women of taste) that three quarter length trousers, T shirts with slogans, any T shirts unless you are sporting a six pack, too short shorts, too baggy shorts, most short sleeved shirts (with one or two exceptions) are a total and complete no no in the style book.

Shirts should always be of fine cotton long sleeved and rolled up or folded back, trousers such as tropical wool, linen, cotton, chinos and linen jeans (always in dark denim) would be great..........Mens legs should only be seen in the garden and on holiday!

A great summer look is the indispensable blazer, with either a polo shirt, fine wool/linen/silk crew neck, a beautifully cut fine cotton shirt, which can be made with a collar which is not designed for a tie therefore sitting just right within the jacket. We have some fab florals which are bang on trend at the moment, as well as some beautiful linens, plain or striped!,

 Have you thought of a collar less shirts for that high summer look! We are thinking of calling them the Jeff Moore Specials as our good friend and another fav client 'Jeff'  6ft 9" of gorgeousness has ordered so many and loves them, god bless him!

 We have also made some beautiful tailored shorts, for the lovely Keith, worn on the right occassion or on your boat, they look sharp especially with a pair of trendy deck shoes.

In conclusion we have summer sewn up in IDB World.................Liz and I look forward to seeing you over the next 2 weekends........Just give us a call. and join us for coffee...............may be you will come away with a bargain.

PS If you missed our recent Newsletters and would like to have the them emailed to you, just send us you e address...
