Top Tailoring Trends for 2018
Tailoring is an art all men should learn from a young age. Classic and timeless is key however, trends are constantly changing. To help you out, we have taken leading model and entrepreneur Omar Borkan Al Gala through some of the best stores at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island Abu Dhabi to show you how to hit those trends.
1. Statement Detailing
It is the details that can really make a suit pop. A bright colour or bolder pattern on a cufflink, pocket square, pen, and watch, tuxedo lining etc. shows you are confident to give your own sense of style with tailoring. Montblanc have their bright coloured limited edition Beatles pen and an array of bold cufflinks while Dolce & Gabbana use opulent gold detailing and bold colours that lift any suit.
2. Bespoke & Personalization
Off-the-rack suits are a hard thing to wear right. Fit is everything and a tailors touch is needed for a true timless suit. The Emenegildo Zegna made-to-measure service at The Galleria promises a fit like no other, in the expected luxury fabrics. Berluti offer personalization across their shoes, belts and accessories and even the bespoke shoe, custom made for the ultimate in comfort and style.
3. Luxury Leather Accessories
It could be argued that high-quality leather accessories are more important that the actual suit itself. Omar loves the beautiful Officine Panerai watches with various exotic leather straps and the large selection of stylish footwear options from The Cobbler.
