A garment bag is just a garment bag, right?

Sorry, wrong.

Many look at a garment bag and think “Yep, that’ll do”. Those in the know are going for ones by Briggs & Riley.

These guys have taken luggage and reinvented it from the ground up.

Not only do their garment bags look great, they are practical and last a lifetime.

garment bag corner guards

The lightweight shell is tough and most of all protects your clothes, but is also light weight. If you have a limited weight allowance when you travel, you can take more with you.

The reinforced corner guards will protect your luggage and its contents. Handy with today’s less than delicate baggage handlers at airports.

garment bag expander

With the handy zip-free content expander you can expand the capacity of your garment bag by up to 34%. You can collapse it back down at the press of a button. Handy for keeping the contents snug without squashing them.

garment bag outsider handle

The outsider handle means that none of the capacity of the bag is taken up with the handle or the mechanism.

This means that you have a flat surface for packing inside and also the you do not lose storage space – very clever.

garment bag built in wheels

You can easily remove the wheels of the Briggs and Riley garment bag for maintenance or swapping.

Not that you should ever need to swap them. Briggs & Riley make the toughest nylon wheels to last for many years.

The Briggs & Riley garment bag is one of those purchases you will be glad you made.

When you spend a lot on your wardrobe, it is worth spending on the right bag too. Better garment bags keeps your clothes looking better. Consequently, you look better.

A man of style would always make his style look effortless.

Gents’ Style

So now that you’re here, what do you want to do?

You may have been expecting more but at the end of the day it’s quality not quantity that counts.

Here, wherever we feel the urge, we will produce some unbelievably amazing content on the subject of men’s style. We are, after all, stylish men who enjoy nothing more than congratulating ourselves on how good we look in our latest tailored shirts and long sleeve polo shirts.

Clothes, as the saying goes, make the man. And none more so than handmade suits and shirts. Tailor-made, hand-made, custom-made – all essentially the same thing. The real difference is between bespoke suits and made to measure suits.

Made to measure suits are made to an existing pattern and adjusted to fit the client’s size. These are absolutely adequate for the majority of men and look superb – every bit as good as a bespoke suit but for a fraction of the cost.

A bespoke suit is completely made from scratch for the client. Every panel, seam and stitch designed with the shape, style, posture and gait of the wearer in mind. Bespoke suits take the longest to make, requiring several fittings. Bespoke suits are ideal for men with an asymmetrical shape – a dropped shoulder, uneven hips, a curved spine, a shoulder injury etc. When the body itself is unique, the suit too needs to be unique.

Then of course there are the incredibly lucky people who actually fit an ready-to-wear, off-the-rack suit. These people are genuinely rare, however most people will buy a ready-to-wear suit and settle for it being ‘an okay fit’.

When you get into custom clothing you will start to fully appreciate the difference. But until you venture into this world, you cannot appreciate the difference.
