Today its all about the boys. I’m delighted to spotlight on Adam Waite who creates very stylish made to measure suits.
Nothing smacks of gorgeous more than some sleek lines and outstanding tailoring [ well unless they are in a Kilt and thats another story!]
So often the menfolk are a little left out in this Wedding Planning process but today I would like to address how to ensure that the male Bridal party, and especially the Groom can look sharp on the most important of days.
I am especially excited to focus on this exciting company that has in a few short years really started going places.
Adam Waite has 2 studio’s in London town [Chiswick and Saville Row] and 1 in my own fair city of Glasgow…result!
So I had a wee chat to find out the skinny on this fabulous up and coming brand…
Who are you, and what do you do ?
“My name is Adam Waite and I’m a Menswear Designer/Tailor. We specialise in Made to Measure and Bespoke suits, shirts and accessories for men.”
Why, and when did you start your Business ?
“I launched my label 2 years ago. After working in the industry for many years, I saw a little gap in the market for fashion-led tailoring, a change from the old fashioned gentlemen’s tailor, normally very formal and stuffy.”
What Inspires you?
“Well dressed people inspire me, I constantly people watch in London and keep in touch with current trends by reading international fashion press.”
What trends do you see coming through and does this influence your work ?
“At the moment we are seeing the Double Breasted Suit making a come back. It adds a real retro feel to tailoring and yes that comes through with our designs, in fact, it’s something we’re doing quite a lot of just now.”
What has been your favourite commission and why ?
“My current favourite commission is suit we are making for a Turkish Pop Star. He’s having a white cotton suit with 20cm wide lapels and skinny trousers! Taking some old and new styles and mixing them up to make a unique suit.”
What’s your greatest achievement ?
“My greatest achievement has got to be starting my own label. In just two years we have an extensive client base and we have two showrooms, in London And Glasgow, and have developed our range to include shirts, ties and handmade shoes.
“We’re really chuffed with how it’s going and pleased to be able to offer our tailoring to the Style Savvy Scots!”
What do you see as the future of your Business ?
“Well we hope to increase customers further and develop a ready to wear suit range to bring to the wholesale market fairly soon.”
“We have already been talking to a London department store to about this. And hopefully by end 2013 we will have our 3rd showroom in Paris!”
Thanks to Adam for sharing his really quite dashing and incredibly eye catching design on the Blog.
I am a sucker for a bit of colour so creating your own style statement on that most important day in such poptastic colour is great news for all our stylish laddies.
