Romance

Romance is defined as “A mysterious or fascinating quality or appeal, as of something adventurous, heroic, or strangely beautiful.”

Our greatest desire at Loring & Co. bespoke is to bring back the qualities of romance that
somehow gets lost in our day to day routines. So, we encourage you this season to recapture that “strangely beautiful adventure” with a romantic dinner, a walk in the moonlight, or a special date with someone you love.

We’ll do our part by offering you a custom designed hand delivered Gift certificate to someone special. We also have beautiful gifts in stock that we wrap and deliver. One more thing, if you place your order by February 12, we’ll give you our gift of 20% off.

Gift certificates are only redeemable for merchandise or custom orders fro Loring & Co. bespoke.

What Makes Custom..Well, Custom?

Yesterday we featured a glimpse of bespoke clothing and what kind of look it can create. Besides looking your best, why would you want to create custom clothing?

The number one reason is fit. Today’s clothing manufacturers use a fit model to create sizing, and then generate thousands of copies of sizing to that model. Ironically, they are selling to humans of which no two are the same size. Just because two people have a size 38 chest doesn’t mean their waist or shoulders are the same. With our Loring & Co. label, we have successfully fit gentlemen of all sizes because we measure every inch. Biceps, inseams, outseams, hips, waist (even for a coat). The point is, when you try on your custom garment, it fits as it should.

It is not uncommon for one of our clients to try on their first custom shirt and say, “I look really in shape in this.” A common misperception is that “custom” or “fitted” are synonymous with “too small” and “too tight.” The fact is that proper fit accentuates your body. Even guys that aren’t in their, shall we say “high school shape,” find that custom clothing has a slimming effect.

Beyond fit, are the options custom offers for your clothing….More on that tomorrow!

Black Tie Optional

In six weeks, we will be ringing in 2014. Can you believe it? Coincidentally, it takes five weeks for one of our showstopping custom made-to-measure tuxedos to arrive. That means it’s time to get on it!

We have an incredible selection of fabrics for both suits AND formalwear. One of our favorites here at the shop is this navy tux with black lapel. Add your unique touch with a pocket square, suspenders, and classic black bow tie. (Don’t worry, we will make sure you know how to tie it- free of charge).

After New Years celebrations comes a parade of events in Nashville. We promise to have you looking your best for #BalletBall, #SymphonyBall, or #SwanBall!

What are you waiting for?
