I was recently approached by the Savile Row Company to review two shirts from their collection. In the interest of a fair review, I chose one from the casual collection and one from the formal. “The Savile Row Company is a global online retailer of fine luxury goods with a focus on menswear, but also spanning across accessories, footwear and womenswear”. I was always familiar with the brand having seen their shirts in numerous stores like TK Maxx and various menswear shops. When I knew that they had a standalone website I couldn’t wait to choose from a wider selection than I had previously seen. (more…)
I was recently sent this fantastic bow tie by the people at My Kind of Tie for a style post. I was sent the London floral bow tie. It looks pink, but that is the effect that is given off from the red and white silk woven together to make the bow tie. The blue flowers compliment either colour so it is a winner either way! The bow tie retails at €15 and there is free next day delivery to Irish customers. Given that the bow tie is called London, I decided that a dapper London look would be best for this post. The venue I chose for this shoot was the fabulous Faithlegg House Hotel in Faithlegg, Co.Waterford which is a short drive from where I live. I thought it was the perfect setting as the grounds look beautiful in autumn and the interior has a high-class feel that you would expect from any venue of it’s stature.
Welcome to another edition of Style Stories. I am really excited about this blog post, as I got the chance to quiz one of my style influences. As you can see from the title, it’s Brendan Courtney.
