"The suit is the modern gentleman's armour" - Harry Hart, The Kingsman
We were thrilled when we were approached to provide a full set of cloth bunches for this terrific new action-thriller by Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn. If you can tear yourself away from the magnificent Colin Firth as he shows a young Taron Egerton around his civilian front, a rather magnificent tailor shop, you might just spot our distinctive red bunches.
Beyond our own little cameo, we were very pleased at the idea of a secret service set up and run by tailors with a thirst for justice. It's a tremendous film, and we'd urge anyone with or without an interest in the fine art of tailoring to see the film.
We're hard at work on our own new shop-front, perhaps we'll take a few cues from The Kingsman while we're at it...
