Widnes Vikings Bespoke Suit Fitting

Posted: Jul 31 2014

Last week the Chess London team spent an afternoon with the Widnes Vikings as they had their first fitting of their made to measure suits. After meeting with the players previously, our designer measured each player in order to create individual suits that fit each player perfectly, because we know that one size does not fit all when it comes to athletes.

After watching the guys train, we had the opportunity to chat with the team whilst they tried on their bespoke suits.

Each suit is made from fine British wool, fully lined in luxurious fabric and with each players' name handwritten on the inside pocket. The white shirts are made from 100% super-fine Italian cotton that has a little stretch which is ideal for the players who build their muscles daily. The shirts also have concealed buttons beneath the collars in order to keep them crisp.

 We can't wait to see these guys play at the semi-final on August 10. They will look every inch the athletic gentleman in their bespoke suits, shirts and ties. We are behind you all the way, good luck guys!
