It was once said "never brown in town", the mild indiscretion of wearing one's tweed in the city or brown shoes with a navy blue suit; times change and along the way so can sartorial advice.
Brown in Town takes it's inspiration from traditional British tailoring, but, as our name would suggest, we're not adverse to breaking with tradition in order to achieve the perfect look for the individual. Whether that means wearing tweed on your wedding day, or brown-coloured brogues with a blue city suit, we cannot deny that some of us look good in such colours.
Foremost your personal tailoring service, Brown in Town also like to offer advice in dress and on the accoutrements we think no gentleman should be without. And so, to accompany your bespoke suit, we also offer shirts and ties, pocket squares and handkerchiefs and even umbrellas - to protect your finery from the elements.
Brown in Town was founded to establish a traditional tailors and outfitters in Bristol, sympathetic to the requirements of the modern gentleman. We offer an extensive range of some of the worlds finest cloths and materials from heritage brands such as Harrisons of Edinburgh, Fox Flannels, Porter & Harding and Harris Tweed, to name a few.
