An expert tailor will visit your home or office driving a Mini Clubman
It’s a meeting of two top British brands – in the Middle East. Mini and Ascots & Chapels have announced a unique partnership, launching a new visiting tailor service in the UAE that will see one of Ascots & Chapels’ expert tailors heading to appointments in a Mini Clubman.
The collaboration combines the heritage of the world-famous Mini (first launched 60 years ago in 1959) with Ascots & Chapels’ 148-year history at the forefront of luxury men’s couture, inspired by traditional English tailoring. Both brands are steeped in the very essence of British style, creating the perfect partnership.
Ascots & Chapels is based in Mayfair, London, with multiple locations across the UAE. It specialises in hand-crafted clothing, with manufacturing facilities in Dubai.
Gary Sweeney, brand and style director at Ascots & Chapels, says, “I had this idea of a boys’ night in, where men can get together at a friend’s home over a couple of drinks and a cigar, and have their favourite tailor swing by, or a guy can call us to his office and have himself measured and select fabrics at his convenience.
“In order to do this, my first idea was to ‘brand up’ a nice vehicle, and instantly Mini came to mind. The new Mini Clubman is well crafted and smartly accented, exclusive and yet attainable. This fits exactly with our vision.”
With its unique dual-opening rear doors, spacious boot, great performance and iconic appeal, the Mini Clubman is the perfect vehicle for the Ascots & Chapels tailoring team when attending private client fittings and events.
