We’re proud of our range of suits and tailoring on all levels, so it’s always nice when we hear people shouting about it too! Gabriel John of renowned London Tailors October House agrees with us and gave them top mark for quality and value over the weekend! See what he had to say in his own words…
As you savvy ladies already know, they’re quick and easy to buy with our Click & Collect service, or if you’re a busy bee our delivery service offers a convenient option in a snap. Perfect for interviews, summer weddings or a tasty slap-up dinner too!
So make sure your man knows where to get suited and booted in the very best (and at an affordable price!) and he’ll thank you. Leaving him room to treat you to that cute dress you spotted in our occasionwear range ;-)
From checks to chinos, and stripes to selvedge, the guy’s certainly aren’t short of style inspiration at Clothing at Tesco! However with so many trends out there, it’s no secret that picking the key additions to your wardrobe can sometimes be a tricky affair.
If you or that special guy in your life is in a bit of a trend muddle, always remember our top tip – try it on!

If your Dad is the man that has everything, then like me, you are probably struggling for what to get him this Fathers Day. I’ve given enough aftershave to fill a swimming pool, but this year, I’ve got my eye on a few things from Tesco…
Our wide range of gifts includes great novelty items such as Homer Simpson slippers and fun t-shirts, right down to a sleek selection of F&F Signature belts and wallets.
This week is flying by, isn’t it? It’s already Thursday which means only one more days left til the Bank Holiday weekend. The forecast isn’t looking great but we’re hoping you’re still going to make the most of the long weekend. After all, it’s the last one for a long time. To celebrate the extra day off, we’ve got some lovely Bank Holiday offers for you. For the ladies, we have maxi dresses for mini prices and harem trousers from just £8. And for the men, we have a fantastic suit offer as well as a buy one get one half price deal on polo shirts.
We even have a Bank Holiday bonus offer to help you make the most of the unseasonable – £5 off selected men’s coats and women’s trenches. Autumn/Winter fashion is going back to basics with classic styles and neutral shades, there has never been a better time to invest in a timeless trench.

With all this football talk over the last week or so, we’ve barely had a chance to mention Menswear Fashion Week in Milan. The likes of Roberto Cavalli and Vivienne Westwood have had such inspirational catwalk shows, giving us a sneak peek into what style conscious men will be wearing next summer. It all kicked off last Saturday with Dolce & Gabbana, who were celebrating their 20th anniversary in Menswear. With so many gorgeous menswear looks – and models – on the catwalk we were spoilt for choice, but our firm favourite in the office was Versace.
Inspired by their archives and photography by renowned fashion photographer Bruce Weber, the collection has a definite Eighties vibe. We loved the new suit silhouette, which was very fitted with slightly shortened sleeves and trousers rolled up at the ankle. As well as sleek and sophisticated suits, they also had some more casual, rockabilly-inspired looks with fringed leather and plaid shirts. The collection featured a lot of black but with splashes of white, aqua blue, pink and red which are refreshingly summery.
Here are some staple pieces you can use to achieve this look at an affordable price:
Invest in a dark navy suit, that you can wear with a contrasting collar shirt. You can also mix the jacket with a lighter shade of trousers, and for days when you don’t need a formal jacket, pair the lighter trousers with a checked shirt.
You don’t need to spend a million to look like a million dollars…
What better way to start a long bank holiday weekend than with a great big 25% discount! Perfect for stocking up on summer wear for the kids, holiday wear for the family or a summer dress for yourself.
Struggling to chose what to buy with your discount? Here are some of our new products for summer to help inspire you:

Everyone loves a man in a good suit. It’s a fact. (well, at least in our opinion).
So that’s why we’ve decided to feature some of our lovely men’s suits on the blog. We know you ladies love to get your men looking their best, so we are happy to help in whatever way possible! Be it for a wedding this summer or their everyday job, there is something for everyone.
The key to wearing a suit well, is in choosing the right one. There are many things to look for including getting the right fit and shape as well as the right colour, these tips from Ape To Gentleman (a great blog about male grooming) are a good reference. It also includes general grooming tips for every man…
Are you off to a wedding this summer? If so, do let us know what you wore and help inspire the masses looking for the right wedding day outfit.
For the boys at LFW the trench was still a very strong trend (as such a classic, elegant piece should be), as is the skinny jean, hooded coats and jackets, bowties, army-surplus type lace-up boots, vintage coats, cardigans and immaculate Savile Row tailoring.
It was very, very wet, and very, very cold but somehow the fashion pack still managed to dazzle in the style stakes at the London Fashion Week A/W 2010 collections.
After a slowish start on Friday (with the exception of the Hakaan show which had celebrities and fashion royalty packing both the front row and the runway), the off-runway action picked up on Saturday when some of London’s brightest young fashion stars held their shows. Mark Fast, Topshop’s Unique collection and House of Holland were all drawcards for the local and international fashion crowd who didn’t let the teensy fact that it was the weekend stop them from wearing sky-high heels, enormous fur coats and skin-tight leather. And it just got better and better from there on in.
My camera and I had trouble keeping up! And this season it wasn’t just the girls who looked completely fabulous, the boys were just as stylish. I really think that winter allows men’s style to shine, perhaps as it lends itself to beautiful fitted coats, and accessories like hats, scarves and gloves, all of which can take an outfit from nice to WOW!
Hottest fashion accessory of the week? The Umbrella (although I did spot numerous improvisations being used as protection from the rain including newspapers, magazines, handbags and scarves-you have to work with what you’ve got, no?!).
I’m off to Paris for the collections later this week-I will be keen to see if the trends I spotted in London carry through to Paris.
Wish me and my camera luck xx
