Again, our Spring merchandise is a tad delayed due to circumstances beyond our control, however, we wanted to give you a very small taste of what’s in Royal Hem’s Spring 2014 collection. Now, of course, we can’t guarantee this will be available on our site, but it just goes to show that Copen Group is truly upping the quality of its garments. We’re in love with the whole outfit, the blazer that has a great linen look to it, but has other materials to provide some extra structure, and the jacquard print pants.
Our last stop on Thursday was in Civitanova-Marche, home to Copen Group, makers of Royal Hem. Got some really great suits, blazers and outerwear, almost all from the Royal Hem line, and a few pieces from De Curtis and Romeo Gigli as well. Lots of heavy wools, including a number of tweeds and even some garment-dyed wools. If there’s one thing to note, it’s that production quality has gone up — better fabrics and better construction.
Interestingly, Copen Group has now started production on a full line of menswear for Baldinini, an Italian shoe company that some of you may be familiar with. Down the line there’s a good chance we may be able to grab a bit of that as well.
So that’s it folks. All in all it was a great trip. The merchandise should be headed to the States in approx. 2 weeks, and, G-d willing, up on the website for a debut in mid-August. If anyone out there wants an in-person preview, do feel free to hit us up and we can try and schedule an appointment once everything arrives (appointments are limited to those who have had a significant purchase history with us in the past — you know who you are).
In case you needed a bit of inspiration as to how to wear some of the more interesting items from Royal Hem, here’s a blogger from Italy showing you how to do it right, in a jacket nearly identical to the suit available on PEURIST for a meager $129 — less than our original price on lone blazers, and certainly less than any MSRP you will see for the piece.
Well it took a while for us to get back to the blogging world, but here we are folks. For those fans of the old Yellow Baggers blog, we are in the process of archiving the blog so it will be accessible for the future, but for now we hope that you will enjoy the posts here on PEUR postings.
We wanted to start off our first post by showcasing one of our favorite brands, Royal Hem. Now, remember that most of our brands have not really made their way into the States yet. So it’s rare to spot something we recognize in the media. But take a gander at the photo below.
To the left is former Scottish rugby player Thom Evans…and to the right, check out the hunting-inspired blazer from Royal Hem’s F/W 2012 collection (which we hope to have in late July/early August). I’d say Mr. Evans wears that blazer quite well, though, some of the styling may be a bit much, ahem, blue suede shoes (no complaints about the lovely lady by his side).
