Posted by RegentTailoring Admin on

When it comes to choosing the right flask and the right drink to put in it, Regent's here to help you use your melon... The inside of a melon – yessir, whenever you sneak a swig from your favourite trusty hip flask, remember that this is where it all started when, in the Middle Ages, folk would carve out the insides of fruits to store their liquor in for carrying. Indeed, this quirky, semi-secretive and crafty spirit has been borne through the evolution of the hip flask across the ages, where it's now become a beloved, intimate and crucial item...

Iconic Look

Posted by RegentTailoring Admin on

Regent takes the inspiration for our 'Iconic Look' from the likes of Steve McQueen and James Dean: legends whose style never goes out of fashion and whose look is instantly recognisable. We believe there are four key pieces every man should have in his wardrobe: the Baracuta G9, a classic crew neck T-shirt, a pair of selvage jeans and a pair of desert boots. Each of these items carries a great history and has been worn by many gamechangers within the fashion and film industry. The Baracuta has been around since the 1950s: it is simple, neat, comfortable and smart....

Regent is open

Posted by RegentTailoring Admin on

Salisbury has continually been in the headlines over the past few weeks, and certainly not for the reasons it deserves to be. The attack on the Skripals was frightening and terrible, but the way our city has banded together to deal with it has made us here, at Regent, all the more proud to be part of such a vibrant, resilient and fascinating city. People have been, perhaps understandably, reluctant to visit Salisbury in the wake of the Skripal case and the city's business and trade has been suffering as a result – a result that seems especially unfair and...

The Ivy League

Posted by RegentTailoring Admin on

The Ivy League look has had an enormous influence on the fashion industry and remains one of the most distinguished styles around today. At its heart is the desire to present oneself as ready to engage with big ideas and move the world forward – two principles commonly associated with the group of elite American colleges (such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton) from which the fashion takes its name. There, college students developed the idea of the Ivy League look from both British and American men who, in the 1920's, instigated the trend for combining casual and sporting attire. From...

The idea behind a capsule wardrobe is to own a few timeless items of clothing which are interchangeable, good quality and long lasting, which can then be augmented by one or two more seasonal items.

A Family Affair - My First Experience At Regent

Posted by RegentTailoring Admin on

My first experience of Regent was three years ago, when I just fourteen. I remember that it started with a conversation with my dad about the possibility of having a suit made... The occasion was my father's second marriage, which was naturally hugely important for the whole family. Not only was it the marriage of two people, but the coming together of two families. It was because of this that my dad decided to treat the boys of the family to a bespoke suit from Regent; there were four of us, including me.
