Sat at my laptop late on Friday afternoon last week and the phone rang, it was a long standing customer of ours from Laurie Hopkins Menswear.
“Michael, I need your help! My son needs a suit for next Saturday and he’s got no time, he doesn’t finish work until late this evening, he’s away tomorrow and has no time next week due to work commitments, is there anything you can do for us?”
Me: “Of course there is, let me have his mobile number and I’ll arrange to see him and get a suit sorted for him, no problem”
That’s how I found myself measuring a customer for a ready to wear suit on Sunday afternoon, he chose one, it’s ordered and the required alterations booked in.
Today (Tuesday) I have delivered my customer’s new suit, fitted and ready to wear for the wedding on Saturday.
Two phone calls and one visit, a new suit sorted and ready for delivery, that’s the idea of TravellingTailor.co.uk, we take the stress out of Menswear.
Why not give us a call on 01484 511088 to discuss how we can help you with your Menswear requirements in Yorkshire and Lancashire?
You could be forgiven for thinking that with a name like travellingtailor.co.uk we are all about made to measure suits, jackets and trousers; we’re not, we also specialise in ready to wear garments as well as offering a shopping buddy service.
Our shopping buddy service does exactly what it says, Michael will accompany you on a men’s clothing shopping trip for either half a day or a full day, you choose.
With over 30 years of experience in the men’s ready to wear clothing sector he can advise you on what looks good on you and what you should be wearing, all you pay for is his time (and travel expenses).
There is no pressure to buy, it’s your choice, all Michael will do is offer suggestions and probably encourage you to try garments that are different from what you might normally choose but ultimately, the final decision is left to you.
This week has all been about Ready to Wear Menswear at TravellingTailor.co.uk and men’s trousers to be more specific with me visiting clients on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday to discuss their specific trouser needs.
On Monday I visited a client in Liversedge to deliver some men’s ready to wear trousers to him. This particular client had complained that he was unable to get trousers that had a sufficiently long enough fly since many trouser manufactures had gone down the road of the fashionable short rise.
I managed to provide him with a pair of Navy and a pair of Camel colour Douglas & Grahame San Remo Poly/Wool trousers that had the more traditional slightly longer rise but not the high rise style that a certain reality show judge wears!
These trousers are machine washable at 40˚C and come in a variety of colours including, Navy, Black, Charcoal, Mid Grey, Camel, Petrol Blue and Brown. They are available in sizes 32” – 48” Waist and cost £64.95.
Why not contact Michael at TravellingTailor.co.uk to discuss your trouser needs.
With a name like travellingtailor.co.uk you could be forgiven for thinking that we only provided the good people of Yorkshire and Lancashire with made to measure suits but that’s not the case, we also offer a large range of ready to wear suits, jackets and trousers, all available on a stock service basis and all from various suppliers.
Take today for instance, I have visited a customer at his home in one of the outlying villages around Huddersfield to deliver him a third pair of trousers to a Digel Super 100’s Suit that he bought from Laurie Hopkins Menswear early last year.
The fact that the suit was on a stock service meant that despite damaging one of the pairs that he originally bought in an accident at work, in effect he could still wear that suit because I could get a replacement pair – the accident didn’t result in a total write off of a very nice Super 100’s Digel Menswear suit, all it cost him was the price of a pair of trousers.
Stock service ready to wear suits are available in a variety of fabrics, styles, fits and sizes, why not telephone us to discuss your requirements?
