Moss Bespoke

Thursday, 11 December 2014

"Moss Bespoke - Designed by you, tailored by us."

Haven't you always wanted a suit that nobody else has? Your very own suit, unique to you. We know what you're going to say; Yes of course, but I don't have enough money or time to create one. With our Moss Bespoke service, time and money isn't an issue.

To simplify the process of how Moss Bespoke works, give the following a quick read.

A consultation and fitting with one of our suit experts takes between 30-45 minutes, you can either ring or pop in-store to make an appointment  at one of our 30 specialist bespoke stores -

At your appointment you will be guided through the simple process:

Your Cut

We will measure you and help you decide on the best fit for you, taking both style and comfort into account. Jackets come in one or two button options with either centre or side vents and a choice of notch or peak lapels. Similarly, pockets can be straight or slanted for a more slim-line finish, and trousers come either flat front or with pleats, depending on your cut - the choice is yours.

Your Cloth

You then get to select your cloth. Our broad range of cloths are separated into four collections;

- Specially selected, from £295. (+ waistcoat £90)
- Fine, from £325. (+ waistcoat £95)
- Luxury, from £395. (+ waistcoat £110)
- Deluxe, from £495. (+ waistcoat £120)

There are over 100 cloths to choose from so you'll be spoilt for choice. You can then choose a lining that matches your colour scheme or accessories which is key to subtly making the suit your own.

Your Details

Once you've chosen your cloth the fun begins: choosing all the little details that are unique to your suit. Horn or shell buttons, working button cuffs and even coloured buttonholes are personal choices that make the suit your own. A hidden monogram in your inside pocket, with the initials of your loved one or your wedding date, can provide a stylish souvenir of your special day.

You'll receive your suit within 8 weeks of you fitting and any final adjustments can be made in store prior to collection.

As we're currently in Sale this couldn't be a better time to get the Moss Bespoke experience. We are offering 100% wool 2-piece bespoke suits from our Fine cloth range from only £200.

Just to finish, as an added extra for those who are looking for an extra special service. By appointment we can arrange for a Moss Bespoke evening for you and your friends. Enjoy refreshments while a team of style advisors take you through the fitting and selection process.

We hope to see you in-store soon.

Best Dressed Men of 2014

Wednesday, 03 December 2014
What a year it's been. Gripping TV Series, awe inspiring films and historic moments of sport. It's also been a great year for a handful of fellas and how well they've dressed.

Here's a selection of our favourites:

In no particular order, we'd firstly like to take our hats off to Steve Buscemi. Good old Stevey boy and his styling team have been consistently impressive when dressing the character Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson in the HBO crime drama Boardwalk Empire. 2014 marked it's finale but Nucky Thompson's style will never fade from our minds.

Bringing it closer to home, we have Cillian Murphy who plays Thomas 'Tommy' Shelby in BBC2's Peaky Blinders. Similar to Boardwalk Empire, Peaky Blinders is a crime drama with an impeccably well dressed cast. As our attention is normally focused towards Tommy Shelby we highlight him as the best dressed character. What is also interesting is the fact that Tommy doesn't always wear a tie but still makes himself look ever so suave. The series would have also brought the rounded collar shirt back to popularity.

Now we're bringing you back to reality and looking at some of the chaps who keep it stylish on an a day to day basis.

Firstly, we pay homage to the one and only David Beckham. Becks would easily make this list every year. Well, maybe not when he was wearing sarongs. But nowadays he is the main person to look to for style tips. Be it casual or smart, Becks wears it phenomenally well.

No David, we raise our glass to you.

Next we jump back over the pond and give Ryan Gosling a pat on the back. Ryan makes looking good effortless. His outfits are simple, not eccentric and balance smart with casual. This means Ryan is ready for any event and any photographer whilst ultimately feeling & staying comfortable. 

If you don't want to dress to the nines but still want to look smart take notes from this guy.

Now here's someone who has not only dressed well in his day to day life but played a character this year in a film which is just as good, if better dressed. Who are we going on about you ask? Leonardo DiCaprio of course. The Wolf of Wall Street may have been released at the end of December in the US but it did not grace the UK cinema screens until January 2014. Therefore, we can highlight how dapper Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is. Belfort was a rather outrageous character in the film. But, putting his antics aside he dressed extremely well.

via The Guardian.
Keeping in the states, next on our list is the handsome Bradley Cooper. Throughout 2014 Bradley attended many awards and when on the red carpet he certainly scrubbed up well. He was also brilliantly dressed in his most recent film 'Serena'.

Here he is saying; 'Hey look, Moss Bros. including me in their best dressed list." Yes we have Brad, yes we have.

via The Guardian.
Now we're jumping back over the pond but to Spain to commend one of the coolest guys in sport; Xabi Alonso. Alonso's style is contemporary and not too flashy but he still looks ridiculously suave. Here is is rocking a cream suit whilst leaning on a vintage car. Coolness level 100%.

via Twitter.
Finally we end back in England with Eddie Redmayne. Eddie's style is perfect. He never fails to have his tie properly fastened and wears his suits incredibly well. He has a subtle eccentric style but never goes over the top and always downplays it with simple accessories which make every outfit he wears look awesome. Take note fellas, take note. Here's Eddie recently in a lovely tartan 2 piece.

via Daily Mail.

Obviously there could be many more men we could add to this list but we had to keep it short. If you want tips on how to dress, keep a close eye on what these guys are wearing.

It's Party Season

Thursday, 06 November 2014

And so we reach November, which means one thing -  the start of the Christmas season. TV ads, shop windows and dark night start the countdown and the nation gets excited for 6 weeks of shopping and parties.

Getting the right outfit for your Christmas party that is in keeping with the dress code and your personal style is important, especially if you are trying to woo that special someone. Remember that everyone looks good in a suit and black tie needn't be boring. Follow our guide below and choose the outfit that's best for you.

1. Know your shape.

Whether choosing hire or buy, our dinner suits are offered in slim, tailored or classic fits. Those with athletic and fuller figures may feel most comfortable wearing a suit jacket with side vents, this gives more movement around the middle which allows the jacket to sharpen the contours of the body. Similarly, pleated trousers give that much needed space around the thighs and seat to ensure you don't rip them during a tequilla-infused dance off.

If you have a leaner build, opt for slimmer cuts for a more streamlined look. Narrower lapels, darted jackets and flat front (no pleats) trousers will help you achieve a sharp and attentive style.

2. Hire or buy?

This is probably the most popular question our style advisors get asked and our answer is simple. If you need to wear a dinner suit (tuxedo) more than twice a year, it's worth making the investing in buying one. If you only ever need one for the annual Christmas party and the odd wedding, take the hassle out of the occasion and just hire it. If you know your sizes or have hired from us before, you can even now order online and have it delivered straight to your office. Simple.

Some understated options, such as the French Connection (tailored fit) and Ventuno 21 (slim fit) are available to hire or buy. If you are looking for something a bit more adventurous, the new Moss London collection offers some more seasonal options to buy, such as velvet dinner jackets and tartan dinner suits.

3. The right accessories.

Bringing a look together harmoniously is the job of accessories. Whether to highlight a particular design feature or divert the attention from elsewhere, it's all in the detail.

Always try to keep the width of your bow tie in proportion to that of your lapels, but don't feel compelled to wear black. If you do wear black, choose something with a self pattern such as our Moss London black lace bow tie or Moss 1851 black paisley silk bow tie or with interesting textures such as leathertte or velvet. Braces are also a great addition to great eveningwear (as historically, dinner suits do not have belt loops) and can rightly or wrongly give an element of fun. Finish with a pocket square that accents your glasses, cufflinks, or mod.

4. Great shoes.

Shoes are another important element and the rules have changed in recent years. Years ago, patent shoes used to be the only acceptable option, but recently there has been a move towards softer dress shoes, such as those in suede, velvet or ostrich. Even if none of these options do it for you, choose your smartest black shoes and treat them to a date with the polish and fluffy cloth. Apple polish liberally and cover evenly, leave to stand until dry then buff in a circular motion.

Enjoy the party and don't make a fool of yourself. Even if you do, at least you'll look good.

You still don't have your fancy dress for Halloween sorted, do you? Be honest. We'll leave the judgement and mockery up to your mates (or your significant other).

As long as you've got a suit in your wardrobe, you're ahead of the game - surprise zombie attacks notwithstanding. With the right attitude, and accessories, you can use it to impersonate a whole range of dashing, devilish gentleman. Here are three of our favourites, with Moss Bros. ensembles to match.

Patrick Bateman, American Psycho.

This pathologically handsome character is the fictional embodiment of everything that could go wrong on a Tinder date. He's a killer dresser, too. To pull off the look, pair a navy suit, striped shirt and red-patterned tie with a dead-eyed stare and a business card. Blood spatter optional.

What to wear:

Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather.

We're making you an offer you can't refuse. Be the classiest man at any Halloween 'do in a wing collar shirt, bow tie and black satin lapel jacket. Practice your New York Italian affectation in the mirror before you leave, and don't forget to tuck a red rose in your breast pocket.

What to wear:

Clark Kent, Superman.

Dressing like this iconic alter-ego is a snap; all you need is a plain white shirt, grey jacket and simple tie that can be pulled dramatically aside when it's time for the big reveal. What, don't own anything emblazoned with the Superman logo already? For shame!

What to wear:

Of course, any excuse to get a new Moss Bros. piece (or two or three) is a good one. At, we always have a reason for you to get shopping, whether it's Halloween or not.

Don't get too scared, enjoy.

Top 10 Best Dressed Characters In Film

Monday, 27 October 2014
For years movies have touched us in different ways with their witty banter and one-liners, to the characters we fall in love with or wish dead. However, it is often overlooked at how much the clothing of a character defines them. Therefore we've selected a top 10 of the best dressed characters in film. Across three weeks we will post our Top 10 list. The first week will be 10-8. The second week will be 7-4 and the 3rd week will be the top 3. Let us know who you think should feature in our list and who shouldn't!

In 10th we have Austin Powers. An unusual choice you may say. He's eccentric and the colours he wears are loud. But, he still manages to pull the look off. Must be his Mojo baby. Brightly coloured suits are actually coming back into fashion. If you browse our Moss 1851 Occasions Collections you'll see some amazing brightly coloured suits from Ketchup Red to Burnt Orange.

We can't go through the best dressed characters in film without mentioning a certain someone. In 9th it's Bond, James Bond. Well tailored suits, popular with the ladies. Most men aspire to be him and he's the definition of Suave. To get the Bond look, you should opt for only the finest tailored suits. Never eccentric, just keep it simple and elegant.

You may recognise our 8th best dressed character. He's very important. He has many leather-bound books and his apartment smells of rich mahogany. You guessed it. It's Ron Burgundy. Why? Well, minus the beautifully groomed hair and moustache, Ron Burgundy is always dressed to the nines. He does wear some fairly eccentric outfits but all are very well tailored and he always looks sharp. Kudos Ron.

The most recognisable best dressed characters. Their famous walk out of the cafe along the road is lodged in peoples brains for life. And so is their suits. Simple black suit with a black tie and white shirt. In 6th it's the Reservoir Dogs.

Now in 5th we have an entry that could potentially surprise you. But, the person that plays this character is also extremely dapper off the screen. It's Mr. Ryan Gosling who plays Sgt. Jerry Wooters in the film The Gangster Squad. This movie depicts Los Angeles in the 1940's when gangsters and police fought for control over the city. The best thing about the film is the suits. And Ryan sure knows how to wear a suit.

Number 4, Jude Law in The Talented Mr Ripley. Law plays Dickie Greenleaf a rich and spoiled 

millionaire playboy. But this playboy epitomises the word 'suave'. Even is his casual wear, Dickie makes himself look smart. This is one character that shouldn't be overlooked.

Now we get down to our top 3. This was a very hard decision so any of them could take each other's slot. For now we've positioned them as follows;

In 3rd, Al Pacino as The Godfather. Apart from striking fear into the hearts of anyone who crossed him he also manages to dress impeccably well. Italians are known for fine tailoring but pulling it off isn't always that easy. The Godfather makes it looks easy.

In 2nd, Denzel Washington as Frank Lucas in American Gangster. Denzel portrays a ruthless gangster in Harlem who also dresses to perfection. His suits are beautiful and his tie always perfectly knotted. There is no doubt that Frank is the smoothest dresser we've seen in a movie for a long time.

And the person who takes the top spot? Mr Steve McQueen in the Thomas Crown Affair. We're not going to bore you commenting on why we picked him as the best dressed character, this picture sums it up;

Before we finish there are many others that should make this list, here are a few honourable mentions;

- Robert De Niro, Casino.
- Samuel L Jackson & John Travolta, Pulp Fiction.
- John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever.
- George Clooney & cast, Ocean's 11,12,13.
- Jamie Foxx, Django.
- Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf Of Wall Street & The Great Gatsby.

If you know of any other characters that you believe should be in this list or shouldn't, let us know on Twitter @MossBros or find us on Facebook.
