Harlequins is today (Wednesday 17th May) excited to announce that tailor T.M.Lewin has joined the Club as an Official Supplier.
The U.K-based tailor will provide suits for Harlequins players, coaches and staff to be worn on matchdays and for any off-field appearances.
Commenting on the announcement, Harlequins' Commercial Director Ned Wills said: “We are delighted to be partnering with T.M.Lewin, a national brand which is engrained in the history of fashion in England, as we are in rugby.
“Ensuring we have a professional look off the pitch is as important as our famous quarters are on it and T.M.Lewin offer a high quality formalwear, which enables us to achieve this very goal.
“T.M.Lewin reflects perfectly the amalgamation of heritage and innovation that we pride ourselves on at Harlequins. Like us, their roots are cemented here in London but both have an international appeal with mutual worldwide recognition.
“Partnering with T.M.Lewin is, literally, the perfect fit.”
Geoff Quinn, CEO of T.M.Lewin, added: “Like Harlequins, we have a rich and colourful heritage and we're very much looking forward to sharing the Lewin experience with both players and fans. Seeing the squad out there wearing our suits will be a proud moment for the whole team.
"Partnering up with Harlequins was an easy decision for us as there will be a healthy crossover of customers, supporters and reciprocal benefits.
"After speaking to both the players and staff we decided to create a look that was not only contemporary and smart, but could also meet the team’s varied demands, such as the changing room or corporate events. The outfit we’ve created with Harlequins is a great blend of traditional formalwear and modern fit that allows the wearer to be both comfortable and professional."
Alongside players and coaches, Harlequins’ staff will be wearing T.M.Lewin suits to ensure the high standards of uniformity and professionalism are maintained across the Club.
They’re not the only ones that’ll sartorially prosper from the new partnership, as Harlequins Members will also receive benefits - at various points throughout the season - that come with a 2017/18 Harlequins membership.
To kick off the new partnership, T.M.Lewin are offering a 20 per cent discount to all Harlequins supporters on their extensive range of products until Wednesday 7th June using the code QUINSTML20 at www.tmlewin.co.uk.
Like Harlequins, T.M.Lewin was founded in London in the 19th Century and all these years later both still call the capital their home. The tailor has more than 40 stores across Greater London with more in the South East of England.
T.M.Lewin pride themselves on delivering craftmanship, quality, service and value to all their customers. Noted as one of the industry's early innovators, T.M.Lewin were the first tailors to create the coat shirt, a prototype of the modern shirt so commonly bought and worn today.
With just under 100 stores in the U.K - and more opening in Europe, Singapore and Australia - T.M.Lewin continue to use traditional manufacturing techniques to ensure their attention to detail and quality of product is second to none.
