Luxury: Braddon Tailors Trunk Show this Thursday

This is something of a public service announcement for any men or women in Canberra looking to get their hands on the best bespoke suits, ties and accessories that Canberra has to offer.

This Thursday 24 July, two Canberra companies are joining forces to showcase their impressive wears for men who appreciate the finer-side of mens fashion and who understand that first impressions really do last.

I will be joining Pip Morgan and Tarun Charker of Braddon Tailors, along with Jason Sergott of Henry Cater, and more than 50 Canberran gentlemen; and heading to the studio of Braddon Tailors for a unique trunk show of some of the best men’s winter fashion available in the nation’s capital.

As I have mentioned previously here and here, Braddon Tailors are Canberra-based designers dedicated to producing high quality, made-to-measure and bespoke garments using refined techniques and luxury fabrics. Established in 2010, Braddon Tailors focuses on timeless suits, not those that succumb to the fads of fashion. The label, founded by Canberra’s Pip Morgan and Tarun Charker, showed for the first time this year at Fashfest, and I was blown away by the collection.

Henry Carter Neckwear will also present at the trunk show with its hand printed and woven silk ties from renowned Como in Italy and Macklesby in England, as well as pocket squares, scarves and other accessories, all made using the finest silks, wools, cotton and cashmere. Henry Carter is based here and owned by Canberra’s Jason Sergott. Braddon Tailors is the sole stockist of Henry Carter products in the ACT.

The trunk show will be a great opportunity to view the latest in men’s fashion, but also to learn about the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of dressing professionally. “Some men are confused about basic rules such as sleeve length, pant length, how to combine colours and how to combine patterns,” says Pip. “Some are confused about what is possible to wear in a conservative work environment, what to wear at interviews, and how to marry jackets with jeans for a casual look. We’ll be on site to provide guidance and advice.”

While the trunk show features men’s fashion, women are obviously also invited. “Women love men in a great suit and tie,” says Pip. “We’re receiving more questions from women about what their partners should consider wearing, both in a professional and casual environment.”

As I have said, I’ll be at the free event, which is being held at Braddon Tailors studio, Level 1, North Building, 180 London Circuit, from 5.30 until 9pm this Thursday evening. You can confirm your attendance by calling 0414 751 828.
