Yorkshire heritage label Bucktrout Tailoring joins Moda Gent this season, bringing with it a range of British tailoring perfectly in-keeping with modern menswear.
Modern styles that respect the past – with one simple ethos, Bucktrout Tailoring has perfectly captured everything that is currently in demand in the menswear sector. Honed from decades of family experience in textiles - and located within a historic tailoring district - Bucktrout Tailoring is one to watch as it joins the menswear ranks this a/w 18.
“There’s a great deal of interest in the classic British style category both at home and abroad, and we think that the Bucktrout name and our heritage plays right into that aesthetic,” says creative director Katie Bucktrout. “We exclusively use British heritage fabrics sourced from Yorkshire and Scottish mills, and we’re all about creating modern styles that respect the past; our collections are timeless, and we’re committed to beautiful tailoring and quality at a fair price.”
Having previous owned a successful Harris Tweed Clothing label, the Bucktrout family put their name to a collection of modern menswear in 2014. The last year has been spent curating a heritage collection targeting the contemporary menswear market and – with the completion of a texturally rich offer of tailoring – their attentions soon turned to the national industry show.
“Moda Gent seems like the perfect venue for us, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our collection there,” continues Katie Bucktrout. “Over the last year, we have steadily increased the number of independent retailers we have in the UK and Europe, and have brought a small number of stockists on board in Canada and North America.”
Buyers will have the chance to see Bucktrout’s new heritage collection first at Moda Gent this February. Characterised by contrast under-collars, stitching, elbow patches, bespoke buttons, new linings and of course, the brand’s signature British textiles, it’s a multi-faceted take on contemporary tailoring.
“We’ve also rounded out the collection with new casual and outerwear,” reveals Katie Bucktrout. “Whether it’s casual confidence or buttoned-up refinement, our clothes help make a bold statement and signal an appreciation for tradition, attention to detail and classic style.”
See Bucktrout Tailoring first at Moda Gent season on 18-20 February, and look out for an exclusive Q&A with the brand’s creative director in your Moda magazine – coming soon.
