Polo: the Shirt of Kings
The long-sleeved Polo shirt is one of the more versatile weapons in a gentleman’s armoury. It can perform as a shirt mixing with tailoring for a handsome casual look. Equally it can serve as a sweater layered over tees or a collared shirt for leisure-time.
We are very pleased to showcase our footwear range for Autumn Winter 2019 from our partners at Paraboot.
The shoe company formed in the French Alps in 1907, the moniker coming later; a portmanteau of “Para”, The Brazilian port that shipped the gum rubber for the soles to the factory, and “Boot” a new-fangled word the Americans used for sturdy rubber footwear.
Planning our collection for autumn / winter 2019, the design team here at Timothy Everest thought long and hard about a more informal and all-inclusive shirt that could sit centre-stage in the selection. We realised the answer was right under our noses.
Our Cuban Shirt, based on the loose fitting open collar Guayabera from South America has become a summer staple for us, but with a little twist and thinking, it has been transformed into the ideal centrepiece for our Perfect Imperfection drop.
For our Autumn Winter 19 collection, we took inspiration from the world of pottery and ceramics and in particular the work by the British studio potters Lucie Rie and Hans Coper.
Both potters were known for their modernist approach, bringing bright colours, natural textures and abstract form into their work; an experimental practise considered very ahead of their time.
There’s nothing more quintessentially English in the summertime than a linen suit. Whilst there is certainly warmer weather attire that could be considered more formal, linen in all its slubby, rumpled goodness just gives the wearer such a comfortable ease, its hard to imagine summer weddings and sports events without it.
This season at Timothy Everest we have greatly expanded our formal Mayfair model shirt offering to include four different collar shapes.
To compliment our popular spread collar, those looking for a little more variety can now add a semi-spread, a button-down and a rounded club collar to their wardrobes.
We are very excited to have taken delivery of a new collection of bags and luggage from London based Troubadour Goods.
Founded back in 2011, the company’s aim has been to fill a seemingly obvious gap in the market – an assemblage of bags and accessories that seemlessly blend elegance with functionality. As co-founder Samuel Bail told us, “We wanted to incorporate elements you’d find on mountaineering equipment onto something you can use with a bespoke suit.”
Summer comfort doesn’t just have to be about lightweight fabrics. This season, we have chosen a cloth with a little more heft and drape for our popular button down Redchurch shirt, still offering the same summer ease and in an environmentally conscious biodegradable material to boot.
For such a sensible cloth, Seersucker has received something of a bad rap over the years; all considerations of its positive contribution to men’s wardrobes smeared by stylish misgivings. In its most popular colour way of pale pastel stripes it’s just a little too ‘fun’ to be taken seriously by most chaps. This season, at Timothy Everest, we’re making it our business to right this sartorial wrong rep.
It was the long hot summer of ’17 when we first introduced our Cuban shirt here at Timothy Everest and it fast became one of our perennial must-have items.Taking its cues from the Latin American Guayabera shirts so beloved by tourists and locals alike, our Cubans borrow the loose fit, open collar, straight hem and lightweight breathable fabrics for an irresistibly modern take on a timeless classic.
This month, we shall be returning to the wonderful Nordic city of Oslo to meet bespoke and made-to-measure clients old and new.Lee and Tony will be based at The Radisson Blu Plaza, in Central Oslo on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th April. If you would like to make an appointment, please contact us here for more information.
If there is one garment that exemplifies our ready-to-wear collection each season, it is our Washed Programme tailoring. It performs an almost superhuman sartorial feat; its special power an ability to unite the disparate parts of one’s wardrobe from smart to casual and all points in between.
Following on from the previous post about some of the recent film productions that we at Timothy Everest have assisted on, BBC2 are currently screening a brand new series which has been receiving a lot of attention.
Eagle-eyed small screen viewers have been treated to a full wardrobe of our Timothy Everest ready-to-wear and made-to-measur in the critically acclaimed drama MotherFatherSon, starring Richard Gere and Billy Howle in a searing study of power and loyalty.
We are cracking out the bubbly as we officially received our Emmy (Television Academy) Award for costume work on The Crown Season 2 ‘Dear Mrs. Kennedy’ episode.
In the hotly contested category “Outstanding Period Costumes 2017-2018” we helped beat out stiff competition from the likes of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Outlander, The Alienist and Genius: Picasso. We are extremely honoured to be acknowledged for the wonderful pieces for Jane Petrie and her incredible team on the show.
In a recent communique, we introduced the design inspiration for our current collection – the 2014 photo book A Perpetual Season from French photographer Grégoire Pujade-Lauraine.
Last week we caught up with Grégoire to delve a little closer into his influences and what makes him tick.
This season at Timothy Everest we have introduced a new style into our popular Spring Summer knitwear range.
Inspired by the Italian-American leisure shirts of the 50s and 60s, we have developed the Merino Long sleeve Button Through. Knitted from a super soft fine gauge 100% merino wool, this is a refined sophisticated take on a classic piece.
One of the surprise features for this year’s Comic Relief celebrations was a BBC short film entitled One Red Nose Day And A Wedding. Directed by Richard Curtis, the featurette reunited the cast of Four Weddings And Funeral 25 years after the original film with newcomers, the acclaimed actors Lily James and Alicia Vikander.
This season at Timothy Everest we have added a new style to our collection in the form of the navy wool linen blouson.
Rethinking and reworking the classic workwear jacket; we wanted to add practicality and sustainability into its design. Working with the acclaimed Northern Irish weavers John England we have developed a material with the rugged good looks of denim, but with additional functionality.
“I started making jackets when I moved to England at 15 years old”, Chris the Coatmaker tells us, “Made for everyone. Prince Phillip, Roger Moore, Tom Jones; Ralph Lauren both personally and for his customers…The work we do now is exactly the same as the work we were doing before. The lining, linen, taping. Exactly the same way as I started learning the trade fifty five years ago”
The inspiration for our Spring Summer 19 ready-to-wear collection comes from London-based photographer Gregoire Pujade-Lauraine’s 2014 book “A Perpetual Season”.

The Wonderful World Of Timothy Everest Bespoke:
The tailoring team here at Timothy Everest enjoy a challenge. We pride ourselves on our ability to give every custom order the care and attention it deserves and deliver the client a garment both unique and truly special. From time to time, our expertise is called on for some rather fascinating garments that go beyond the ordinary scope of tailor made suiting. To that end, a couple of long-standing customers recently requested that we turn our hands to making bespoke suede jackets.
As the clocks go back and the afternoons darken, the temperature plummets as if from nowhere. The surprise of our long, hot summer gives way to the inevitability of the northerly winds and frosty mornings.
We are pleased to re-introduce our patented Tailored Parka; the ultimate antidote to winter’s bite. Recut and refined, the tailored parka offers a sartorially smarter take on the wardrobe staple.
Despite its French-sounding name, Corduroy is a resolutely English cloth dating back to the 18th century and the beginning of the industrial revolution. In some parts of Europe, it still retains the name Manchester cloth; a reminder of its roots in “Cottonopolis”. Effectively a ridged velvet, corduroy is a hardy, yet soft fabric with a pedigree … Continued
