Melbourne social/professional men’s networking group, Suitably Connected, is holding its first event of the year with the iconic British clothing brand, Sunspel. The new (and only international) Sunspel store in Fitzroy on Gertrude Street will be staying open late this Thursday, February 19 for an evening with new and existing Suitably Connected members. The Sunspel team will discuss their ethos of everyday luxury and all guests will receive a 10% storewide discount.
Established in 1860, Sunspel has dressed numerous celebrity ambassadors. Most recently, Sunspel collaborated with Daniel Craig for the James Bond classic, Casino Royale. Additionally, Christian Bale famously wore Sunspel in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the charity, Wear For Success – a group that helps dress, groom and coach disadvantaged men and women in their pursuit of full-time employment.
Mike Chambers, Suitably co-founder, said, “Working with Sunspel sets the tone for 2015, which is set to be exceptional for our members and for Wear For Success, the charity we support. Sunspel is a pioneer of British craftsmanship. Its products are among the best in the world and the new store is the perfect place for us to kickstart the new year.” Suitably Connected recently hosted networking events with Oscar Hunt Tailors, Brooks of Melbourne, Holgate Brewhouse and iconic Melbourne menswear store, Henry Bucks. The networking group is known for its innovative fundraising events and this will be no exception.
