  4. The Finest Women's Shirts


    We’re going to let you in on a secret…

    Well, not really a secret, but something that often gets forgotten in the mists of time.

    Back in 1940, when the Wakefield Shirt Company was formed, before we even came up with the Double TWO shirts brand, we had a very different product.

    The idea had always been that we would manufacture men’s shirts. That was Isaac Donner and Frank Myers aim. But there was a war on. And most of the country’s men were away on the frontline.

    It was also very difficult to get hold of cotton due to shortages. There was however lots of viscose rayon material available. This delicate, lightweight fabric was being used to make parachutes for the military. Mr Donner and Mr Myers decided they could use this silk-like fabric to manufacture blouses and women’s shirts.

    This worked well as women were now going to work in Britain’s factories and needed shirts to wear to work.

    So while we have for most of our almost 80 year existence being renow

  8. The Evolution of Ties


    Love them or loathe them there’s no question a tie is a sure fire sign of formality and elegance.

    But with the modern workplace a much more relaxed environment in terms of dress sense, are ties in danger of dying out altogether?

    We take a look back at the history of the tie and examine how it fits into the modern day man’s wardrobe.

    The birth of the tie

    There is much debate about the origins of the tie and how it came to be the fashion piece it is today. Was there ever a functional use or has it always been solely a decorative accessory?

    Even going back four thousand years to Ancient Egypt there is evidence of the use of neck wear been worn. Ancient Tribes around the world seem to have all worn something around the neck, with very little other clothing.

    If you’ve ever seen China’s Terracotta Warriors they are all depicted wearing a piece of cloth tied around their necks, with different type’s seemingly denoting rank.

  10. Our Guide To Business-Casual Dressing


    The latest dress code, hot on the heels of smart-casual, business-casual is a concept born in the American workplace.

    It was the product of small, predominantly male companies that spent more time in front of computer screens than sat in meetings, speaking to people.

    Business-Casual gained in popularity with the introduction of ‘Dress-Down Friday’ in most American offices. A day that promoted inclusivity, where for one day of the week everybody got to dress as badly as each other!

    Yet, despite all the American hype, the roots of casual Friday can actually be fou
