COVID has changed how a lot of people work, with many now working at home more. How has that changed the clothes that people are wearing?
Track pants and sweatshirts were great when people were working from home, but now they are returning to the workplace there is a new expectation on their wardrobe.
There’s no denying that feeling comfortable is at the core of what we wear and the shift back to the office hasn’t changed that.
Whilst tailoring is part of our DNA – COVID has pushed us to be even more innovative in a space we know very well.
We recently rolled out a merino ultra stretch suit that almost feels like you’re wearing a tracksuit, so far this has been picked up by our customers really well.
Stretch shirts and blazers fall into this too and over the next few months you’ll start to see more of these comfort items in our collections.
Another change we’ve seen since October 2022 is that events have returned, more specifically weddings.
Brides and grooms can now book their big day with confidence. On top of this there’s been over two years of catch up.
This also includes corporate black tie events and we’ve seen a surge in these over the past six months too. It’s fair to say we’ve been busy.
It’s great to know Kiwi men haven’t given up on suits, and still enjoy the opportunity to dress up when they have the opportunity to.
Even in tough times, when there are difficult decisions to make, it’s great to be able to find opportunities to come together and celebrate, when we can.
