We are always available to meet customers in town, either at our club, Quo Vadis above the restaurant of that name in Dean Street in Soho, or at Holland and Sherry's showroom in Savile Row. You can call me on 07816 855533 or email email@example.com to arrange an appointment
To make something interesting is what we do & we like to think we do it rather well. For something to be interesting, it has to be envisaged, designed, created, displayed & adorned, this is what every one of our products meets.
For example, our shirt designs are based upon the idea of initial print image, that is then scaled, coloured, base cloth considered, then sent to the Como area of Italy for printing. This is then sent to our shirt making workrooms in Europe, where our individual shirt designs utilise the fabric to its very best means. Every element of detail is considered & nothing left to chance, from the colours of threads, composition & thickness of our buttons, to the gently fitted bodies on our shirts, to the way our collars sit perfectly upright whilst not feeling like you're wearing a neck brace. The new & exclusive shirts are then sent to us on a 4 to 6 weekly basis, in a multitude of designs & colourways, but in such limited quantities, no more than 36, sometimes as few as 1 per size! The chances of you bumping into another wearer of your identical Blaqua garment (unless you attend any one or number of our splendid events), are as likely as finding a hen's tooth under your pillow.
So as our shirts are unique, so too are the handmade matching ties that we offer for most of our designs, that are made in England. Then we move onto our cufflinks & what works of art they are. Our business started as a cufflink design company many years ago, making for many of Britain's fashion & clothing brands, from the iconic Tommy Nutter, to the flag bearer that is Paul Smith, to the bohemoth that is M&S. We also starting making under our own label that was stocked in a number of the world's best department stores & boutiques. This allowed us to nurture our skills coupled with our ever present design flair to move into shirts, ties, footwear, leather goods & eventually tailoring.
Where our progression will end, is uncertain, but I have a feeling it could be eternal!
