A Royal Attire Tradition

Unlike the numerous speculations about how Kate Middleton’s dress will look like, like his father Prince Charles and his Uncle Andrew, Prince William is expected to follow royal tradition and wear a military uniform for the royal wedding.

It is reported that Savile Row tailors Gieves and Hawkes, which already supplies suits and uniforms to the royal family, have been chosen to design and put together the outfit for Prince William. But nothing has been officially confirmed . . . I guess we all just have to wait until April 29 to find out.

Derks Formals Dresses Toby the Dog for his Book Signing!

Tim Mohr from Derks Formals recently had an amazing time dressing the famous Toby from Toby Tales. Never having worn formalwear before, Toby was looking pretty sharp leaving Derks with perfectly sized cuffs and a handsome looking teal bow tie. At Toby’s book signing, people were raving about how handsome Toby looked!

We must agree that Toby was looking pretty sharp for his book signing. Toby is also coming in for another fitting for a vest and collar. So keep updated with our Derks Formals blog to see new photos of Toby in more formalwear!
