From Brawlers to Barristers; Joe Black Menswear


Joe-Black-1

The thing we dig about Joe Black, is this Macky Clan sailed form Scotland before New Zealand had electricity or proper sewers! Much like our beloved StigofStyle, we’ve got a chap here who had a definite purpose in life, and used his talents well.

In a frontier settlement both raw and refined, Joe tailored a clientele ranging from brawlers to barristers in garments to service them through life’s landmarks. From seduction to deposition, baptism to wake. With a glance of his eye, Joe could discern the measurement of a man without a tape. And his humour earned him the nickname so enduring few remember how he was called before Black.

The Joe Black suit fit is understated, stylist and anything but trendy – leave that to the stylists. His tailoring is not skinny where you’re suffocating, it’s relaxed. The suits lightly padded shoulders give a more masculine silhouette and a shorter cut jacket gives a modern look. Work will require a two-button suit, for play, the shawl collar tuxedo will pronounce your walk like you’re Joe Black yourself.
