The insiders - Part One

09.03.12

Take three members of the Reiss creative team, ask them to wear their favourite tailored looks and style them in their own unique way. The results show an individual spin on each look and sharp attention to detail - needless to say, they wear it well.

About the Shoot

This month, with our attentions firmly focussed on tailoring, we have asked the most sartorially-pleasing members of the Reiss creative team to show us their approach to the sharper things in life.

Presenting much more than just a suit, these guys have a strong understanding of how to wear their tailoring with panache. There's no boxy fits, ill-fitting trousers or naff ties here. With a strong sense of style and the vision to express it without question, they piece together sublime suited looks.

Whether the preference is clean, uninterrupted lines with minimum fuss or fanfare, or a more texured approach, where prints, colours and accessories come into play, each look holds its own merit as it mirrors the person who has created it.

Not that there isn't an element of trends infused. Double breasted blazers, tailored shorts, and those all-important micro details (pocket squares, a slither of sock, buckled shoes, tie pins etc...) which sing the season's tune.It's these fascinating details, which layer so seamlessly, that create a flawless look that's unique to the wearer.

Telling their own little stories, building depth to an area of menswear which is so often taken for granted and creatively left in the dark.

Not so for the Reiss contingent, tailoring is a passion. And they do wear it rather well.We hope you enjoy part one of our tailoring feature and be sure to return next week for more stylish men in stylish suits.
