The Best Shirt For You

In addition to a well fitting suit, a bespoke shirt can really pull an outfit together but this crucial detail is often overlooked.

Here at the Hidalgo Brothers also offer our clients a bespoke shirt service with a perfect cut and fit designed to compliment and complete their look.

Whether you need a stiff collar and double cuffs for a formal evening event or a rounded collar and single cuff for an informal event our shirts guarantee that your comfort is paramount. We also ensure the cut and fit will be perfectly suited to your style and body shape to ensure an effortless style is achieved.

Our tailors will help you choose the best fabric and advise on different colours and designs; whether your preference is for bold solid colours, checks or stripes, every choice you make will ensure that you stand out as an individual and exude confidence.

Our expertise can help guide you choose the best shirt that is suited to your body type. We’ll also make sure it looks great with the cut of the suit you will be wearing it with and how different colours can compliment your skin tone and personality.

If you’re looking for originality we’ll help you enhance your shirt with subtle touches such as monograms, mother of pearl buttons or one cuff slightly bigger to accommodate a large watch.

We offer the finest cloths and linings made in Britain including our exclusive designer fabrics from Holland and Sherry, Dormeuil, and Dugdale Bros. & Co. Clients who prefer their suits to be made of foreign fabrics can choose from our select stock of Italian cloths and linings, including luxury fabrics from Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana.

We know how important first impressions are and will help you create a the best suit for you. Call us today on 020 8616 3397 to schedule an appointment or just come and see us at 2nd Floor, 13 Savile Row, London, W1S 3PH

Panama Hats Hidalgo Style

still-life cappello panamaWith Panama hats being originally produced in Ecuador we at the Hidalgo Brothers wanted to start offering our clients “HB” branded Panama’s. With this in mind we are now expecting our hats to be ready for sale from early summer.

Being one of the world’s most recognisable headwear it’s not surprising that the creation of Panama hats has been added to the UNESCO Intangible Heritage List. This is because the making of these hats is considered a rich, intricate part of Ecuadorian heritage. Despite being from Ecuador, Panama hats got their name as most were made in Ecuador and then shipped to Panama where they were shipped to the rest of the world.

Even though a Panama hat has a similar appearance to the fedora, the two styles actually have nothing to do with each other. While the most common style of Panama hat has an appearance similar to the fedora, the appearance isn’t the important part. When someone refers to a Panama hat, they are more specifically referring to the style in which the hat has been made. These hats are woven from straw, traditionally the Carludovica palmata plant.

As a Panama hat refers to the production style instead of the fashion style, this means that you can get a Panama hat for just about any occasion you care to mention. However, due to the straw-like appearance of a Panama hat, they’ve mostly come to be associated with tropical fashions.

Your Guide To Shopping For A Complete Suit

How to buy your suitWhen it comes to buying a suit there’s a bit more to it than simply choosing a style or a colour. Suits feature a number of components so you’ll need to choose the main function and consider whether you’re looking to buy a complete suit, if it’s for work, special occasions or for another purpose. It’s important to work out what you need before you make your appointment with your tailor so we’ve provided you with the ultimate suit shopping list to make sure every detail is taken care of.READ MORE

London Tailors: What Makes a Man Truly Stylish?

What makes a man stylishTo many, David Gandy is the ultimate male supermodel. Men want to be like him, and women dream of being with him. And he’s not just about good looks—he’s also got the brains to match that well-chiselled physique. Gandy writes about men’s lifestyle for daily newspaper The Telegraph, and in one of his articles, he delves into the issue of what makes a man truly stylish. He cites Paul Newman and Steve McQueen as men who, “because of the people they were, with their confidence and inherent coolness, their powerful characters made whatever they wore instantly stylish.”

Suits: A Ladies’ Opinion

Suits: A Ladies' OpinionWhy a sharp suit will make you stand out from the crowd

A ladies opinion matters, while this is not something that all men will (happily) admit, we all know it’s true. Those of you lucky enough to have a style savvy lady in your life that you can turn to for sound and straightforward sartorial advice will know how much of a god send that second opinion can be. To see first hand evidence of the ‘ladies opinion’ all you have to do is a quick Google search of David Beckham in the pre-Victoria days. Not quite the style icon he is today with a bit of posh persuasion!

For those men out there who are still on the hunt for their style maven to help guide them in the right fashion direction there is help here to deliver some wise womanly wardrobe words to live by.

  • Ladies love a man in a suit, and a suit can make or break a man. A well fitted, quality suit pulls off a look that says you are confident, you’ve got it together and know how to look after yourself. Investing in a bespoke suit is a step towards success, it may sound shallow but first impressions do count and when it comes to ladies a sharp suit sends a first impression that will last for all the right reasons.
  • Take style risks, but don’t go crazy. A little flair shows that you aren’t dull and that you are confident enough in your own skin to know what works for you and what doesn’t. But taking that too far says you have no class and are perhaps a little showy. A dapper suit paired with an interesting patterned pocket square and classic black lace ups is a yes. A pinstripe suit paired with a shiny shirt and silver shoes is a big no no, it screams look at me, when all you need to do is whisper it.
  • Know your own style. While, as a woman, it is nice to be asked for an opinion, there is nothing sexier than a man who knows himself and his style. Get yourself clued up on what works for you and what doesn’t. Get to know your measurements and what colours compliment you. Understand how to put an outfit together, and avoid just wearing your clothes the way they were styled on the mannequin. Think about what shirt, shoes, belt, tie/bowtie and watch compliment your suit and you will then be able to mix it up and keep it fresh.
  • The best advice I can give you is to never let anyone talk you into wearing something that you don’t feel comfortable in. There is nothing more unappealing than someone who doesn’t look comfortable in their own skin, and confidence is the key to pulling off any look.

Keep these tips in mind and visit The Hidalgo Brothers of Savile Row for expert styling and advice that means you will never go wrong.
