Dressing for your Day is an exciting proposition; we love the idea of more diversity in our working wardrobes and the opportunity to express our personal style.

Here is what we are developing to assist you in managing DFYD, we can assist you in creating a total look or with reinterpreting your existing wardrobe.
Soft Tailoring - Removing heavy canvas creates a softer profile. Minimal shoulder pads, floating canvas, patch pockets, unlined & half lined construction create Blazers and Coats perfect for Business Casual look.
