SS08 Aftermath.

Friday, 17 August 2007


The men’s SS08 fashion shows are over, what’s in the goodie bags from the shows have been taken advantage off and the focus is now on the AW/0708 stuff making its way into the store. Now it’s time to wake up the dead by examining the biggest trends we saw on the catwalk.


Biggest trend of them are trousers reaching down just a decimeter or so above the ankle, little longer than Capri pants. I like the looks I’ve seen so far, especially those involving colored socks which are heavily exposed. I almost feel like taking a pair of my trousers to a tailor and get them shortened. The father of “short pants” if off course Thom Browne who is a New York based designer/tailor and has been designing these types of pants for quite some time now.


Aluminum colored jackets were quite popular during the 90s and have slowly begun reappearing along with metallic colored clothes. Transparency should also be mentioned as well which is quite amusing since I have during these rainy days seen quite a few people wearing transparent………*make a guess*…………..rain coats!!!


Either way I doubt that any these trend will become a commercial success. If I know fashion right my guess is that transparent and metallic coloured clothes won’t be cheap. In high fashion stores everything that’s not made out of plain cotton come at heart breaking prices.

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.

Yeaup! I was at that Pink Elephant show. It was a pretty nice collection. One the the hottest items was the white track jacket made from those fancy fabrics that came out towards the end of the show. Good stuff.
