I’ve been thinking how I could switch it up a bit style-wise, whilst shooting in North Wales. I spend a lot of time in the mountains, but i’m not at the point of buying lots of mountain coats and boots just yet. So when I had an opportunity to work with Moss Bros on a custom-made tailored suit, I took it! I’ve used Moss Bros’ Tailor Me service before, and found it was quite good for the price. With suits starting at £279 with a 21-day lead time, you can’t go wrong. This time round I opted for a nice navy cotton 3-piece in a slim tailored fit. The blazer is a double-breasted style with wider lapels, shortened the sleeves, added patch pockets (which are quite unusual on blazers, but I like it!), and contrasting paisley lining and embroidered monogramming to finish. I usually put my name and a special date or occasion so I’m reminded of the reason I bought the suit. This one was simple, Snowdonia 2020 for a new move away from the city. With the trousers, I didn’t choose the matching slim fit sizing as I like mine looser at the thigh, with a nice break at the bottom. These ones were a size W34 and cinched in at the back to fit my waist and i’ve also cropped them so you can see a bit of sock and shoe. Oh and almost forgot, instead of the usual belt loops, I chose side-adjusters to keep it looking minimalistic. Plus I like to wear t-shirts and rollnecks so this makes it look more clean. I did also add a waistcoat but thought it looked nice without in these images.
All in all, I think it came out pretty well, and fit-wise it was almost perfect. With all the customisations, this suit came out to just under £500.00, and would be an ideal option for anyone looking for something of great quality and speedy delivery for both special occasions or just everyday wear.
