james bond suit skyfall

In the latest blockbuster Skyfall, Daniel Craig has been dressed by Tom Ford tailoring. Although the 2012 take is perhaps a little too tight and the jackets a little short in the body for the average man, there is no denying Bond looks amazing in it.
No doubt Mr Ford’s grey pinstripe suit and midnight blue dinner suit will sell really well but DON’T FORGET we will do a great job and it will cost a great deal less!

The three button jacket along with turn ups and pocket hankies in the same fabric and colour of the shirt all make an appearance as well as plaid suits in this truly brilliant Bond flick.
Probably the best sartorial lesson we can learn from these films is that, although smartly dressed in a suit, one should always aim to look relaxed in them.  Also worthy of note is that men are never more attractive to us women then when they are wearing a well-fitting, well-made suit!

Style Tips
The white moire braces with goat skin joints worn under Bonds dinner suit are by Albert Thurston
The Barbour jacket is ‘X to Ki to’ Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket

Autumn wardrobe 'weed'

Winter woolies on as we hit the Autumn!

Our minds are running to lovely tweeds, grey flannel, cashmere and prince of Wales check !

When was the last time you had a good sort out of your wardrobe? The answer is probably 'I don't know where to start'... Well don't fear we do!

Liz and I are offering a 'Wardrobe Weed' we have done this for several clients lately and they have been thrilled with the results.

Send some of the older pieces to the charity shop and then with some of our ID Bespoke tailored pieces mixed with a few good quality High Street buys... jumpers/cardigans, flattering jeans, waxed jackets/leather jackets scarves, shoes boots etc you will look and feel great about yourself.

You might need a complete overhaul or a few good pieces to fill the gap..Give us a ring we will discuss when, where and budget and get a good job done...

Sound good?
Move over Trinny & Suzanna - Liz and Sue are here!!

Wedding Season in Full Swing!

Liz and I love it, wedding season is in full swing here at ID Bespoke. Choosing a wedding suit can be a difficult process, but not at IDB, our grooms always look stylish, the wedding suit compliments the brides dress, each wedding suit is unique...and most importantly the finished wedding suit makes our IDB grooms look and feel a million dollars!!

finished wedding suit makes our IDB grooms look and feel a million dollars!

This season so far we have made grooms beach wedding suitsbeautiful groom and grooms men suits for Indian weddings, grooms country wedding suits, for those tying the knot in a country house or barn venue. Grooms wedding suits for Portafino, Tuscany and a French Chateau.

Oh and a particular favourite of ours, civil ceremonies where we get to dress two grooms, making sure each groom looks and feels special without looking the same!

We have just brought a few more bottles of bubbly ready for our up and coming consultations, so Liz and I would like to raise a glass to our grooms their wedding suits which are a perfect fit for every location and wish all the very best to each sylish bridegroom (you know who you are) and their partners.

Sue & Liz

PS Don't forget to flash the label when everyone compliments your suit!
