The British Are Coming

Gieves & Hawkes is coming across the pond and into our own backyard. That’s right! Over 200 years (243 to be exact) of Bespoke goodness is about to be on our shores.  Not only is it one of the oldest Savile Row tailors, it is also tailor to the Royals!

The thing I really love about this company is that even though they are almost as old as the history of the Bespoked suit, they also have a very modern and contemporary approach  (now thanks to their new CCO, Jason Basmajian), there is much less stuffiness here than one might expect.

Bergdorf Goodman will be the brand’s exclusive retailer (looks like a trip to New York.) They will offer off-the-rack suits, separates, outerwear and offer bespoke and made-to-measure services.

Here’s what we have to look forward to:

Nick Wooster

Last week I mentioned Nick Wooster in my blog The Haircut for Spring 2012 and I would be remiss if I didn’t give him his own separate moment so here we go…
Nick-the man-Wooster…who thinks of your Dandi wardrobe as a garden (I get that), former men’s fashion director of both Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman‘s, is now creative director for JCPenney (can you believe it!?!  Ellen and now this!)  All I can say for JCPenney is that they have just raised the bar of their Brand and I can’t wait to see what this company, one of my own stomping grounds for many years, creates with this style Dandy at the helm.
This man is what a dapper Dandi strives for. He layers like nobodies business, has a sleeve tattoo in this sometimes highly judgmental and conservative world of fashion (believe!) And has swagger and impeccable taste and tailoring to match.
