Kiton | City Creek Center Mall

Kiton is world renown for being one of the most luxurious companies on the planet. We are so fortunate to have them in our store. So far, this brand has been a huge hit here in Salt Lake City. We have received our full Spring ’16 shipment and wanted to share images of what we have with you.  From sportswear to suits, we have something for every occasion.

13.2 Micon Suits

The diameter of a human hair measures between 65-85 microns in width – microscopically. The diameter of wool typically varies between 18-21 microns. Kiton, of course, working with the best of the best has suits of 13.2 microns. These fabrics feel like lightweight cashmere, but are in fact wool. With hairs so thin, they keep their durability while also maintaining the other identities of wool that people love.

Sport Coats

Let’s be honest, in today’s world the easiest way to stand out is simply by wearing a nice sport coat. Paired with jeans or slacks, dressed up or dressed down it’s the easiest way to make a statement. With Kiton, they like ’em loud and bright – drawing of their Neapolitan surroundings.

Sportwear

Few companies on the planet have the level of luxury that Kiton has in things that you can wear on the daily. Their leathers are unheard of, their fabrics so elegant and soft and of course to the comfort level is unbelievable. These pieces have been a huge hit for us so far this Spring. The first image shows a perforated leather jacket that is made from an incredibly lightweight goat swede. The details could be in an art museum. The second image is an all silk exterior, cashmere interior rain jacket that will actually wick the rain.

Remember, with Kiton, they only produce 17 suits and 26 sport coat in each fabric. Exclusivity is very important to us with this brand so quantities are incredibly limited. Step up your Spring game with these incredible pieces!

Santoni | Salt Lake City, Utah

When it comes to men’s footwear, few brands hold a candle to Santoni. Made in Italy from luxury leathers, they mold to your feet and keep you happy all day long – not to mention are likely to turn heads. Here are UWM we are happy to announce that we are now carrying a large selection of Santoni shoes that you will not otherwise find.
Since Santoni has become one of the most popular shoes in the world, you can find them in many different places. Knowing this ahead of time, we decided to buy Santoni a little different that anyone else. The styles that we carry in our store are more unique and not nearly as mass produced as what other stores carry.
We will be carrying a large selection of Santoni models in loafers as well. They make their loafers with a leather sole that has been infused with oils. These oils soften the leathers and make it so the show feels worn in from the first time you slip it on. With summer right around the corner, a lightweight loafer is just what the Dr. ordered.

Ermenegildo Zegna | Salt Lake City, Utah

    2000px-Ermenegildo_Zegna_Logo.svg (1)
We are so excited to announce the latest member of the Utah Woolen Mills Family – Ermenengildo Zegna! Zegna is one of the largest menswear companies in the world and we are so pumped for them to join our line up. Having never been sold in Utah, and also bring the first new account for them in 5 years, we think you’ll really love what we are bringing!
Starting in 1910, Zegna quickly gained popularity for their  beautiful fabrics produced by their mills. It wasn’t until 1966 that they hired in house tailors and began producing their own suits with their fabrics. In 1973 Zegna was one of the first Italian brands to internationalize their production, opening factories in Spain in 1973 and Switzerland in 1977. During the 1980s, the company opened flagship stores in sixteen different countries.
Enough about the past, let’s talk about the present. One of the things that Zegna has become most known for is their incredible sportswear. With incredible leathers and wools, cashmeres and merinos they are truly a brand you can wear every day of your life. We have decided to buy heavily in their sportswear (pictures of what is coming in the Fall will be on our blog soon).
Our official launch date of Zegna is going to be September 22nd in connection with another surprise (can’t give away all of our secrets, but we promise you are going to like this one). By then we will have their full line in the store – suits, sportcoats, outerwear, shirts and ties. We will also have available the following season swatches for MTM suits.

Ted Baker | City Creek Mall, Utah

Ted Baker has been in the fashion business for many many years. Known for their sense of humor, and playful fashion they are a brand that has taken the heart of many women. What most people don’t know is that the founder of Ted Baker isn’t names Ted, his name is in fact Ray Kelvin. Just like his design aesthetic, Ray thought the name Ted was much more fun that the name Ray. We are excited to be the only store in the City Creek Mall in Salt Lake City to carry Ted’s full line.
This most recent collection really played on rich fall colors and a modern twist on beautiful classics. We love the mix of patterns and prints and the beautiful lines they are packaged into. They have been a huge hit for us in the store as well. While many of these looks have disappeared, there are still a few looks left for the taking to carry you through the rest of the winter and in to the spring.
While many different brands have gone quite masculine in their looks, Ted stays true to feminine beauty and finds ways to be true to women. The silhouette of each piece, paired with beautiful fabrics has made this season one everyone has loved!
City Creek Mall, located in Salt Lake City, has many lovely stores – but we are a little bias to our selection and love what Ted Baker has done to update our selection as well. They bring London Fashion to Salt Lake. We carry their full selection of products from apparel to hand bags and accessories too!
It’s never too late to come in and check out our full selection of Ted Baker items. We are happy to tailor them to your specifications and make them look just how Ted (Ray) intended them to look. Come check us out on 59 West South Temple (the North West corner of City Creek Mall), right across the street from Temple Square downtown.

Double Breasted Suit | Salt Lake City, Utah

You may have seen glimpses of people online bringing double breasted suits back and we have got to say that we love the new look! Slim, trim, updated and fitted. We have a few models in the store with more to come – and of course we can always custom make you one! Let’s take a look at the updated version of the new double breasted jackets – where they come from and where they are now.

90’s

The 90’s are a great place to start if you ever want to easily see how far menswear has come. Take these double breasted suits for example. At this time, Pierce Brosnan was in peak physical condition but looks like he has never lifted a weight. Brad Pitt was in Fight Club shape, but again, looks like the kid we all picked on. A draping full fit never did anybody any good. If you are out there cringing at the thought of double breasted coming back, we don’t blame you if this is the image in your head.

These images make it pretty easy to see the dramatic difference between the two eras of double breasted. The button stance of the jackets is higher on the new version, the sleeves tapered, waist slim. They accentuate the chest how a proper suit should and highlight masculine areas. Isaia double breasted suits, as seen above in charcoal, has really been the front runner in terms of style. They are the most purchased high end double breasted jacket – and we may be a little bias, but are some of our favorites as well. Other contenders would be Kiton or our own Richards Street.

Come on in and try out a double breasted jacket and see what the update can do for you and your inner Bond.

Seven Fold Tie | Salt Lake City, Utah

What are your considerations when you want to purchase a tie? Price, color, pattern, width, and designer brand usually get more attentions. However, tie’s construction could be a very important factor. In general, there are many types of tie, today I’d like to introduce you the most classic and luxurious tie: seven-fold tie.

Unlike most ties, which are made with some pieces of fabric sewn together, the true seven fold tie was constructed from one large piece of silk, which was unlined and accordion folded in on itself 7 times. The edges are hand-rolled and hand-stitched. It is emphasized on all handmade process and pure silk material. That’s why seven-fold tie is so impeccable; it has a thicker feel, incomparable drape, a larger looking tie knot, and a more hefty weight.

Labor intensity and quality of material drive the tie’s high price, but a seven-fold shows its value when suitably worn. The lack of lining allows the tie to knot without binding and creates an attractive dimple that spreads luxuriantly down from the neck. It drapes perfectly and never takes on the awkward folds of a liner. Another great thing about the seven fold tie is that it has greater reflex than standard ties – meaning that when you untie your knot, the folds, wrinkles and creases with disappear much faster. There is something wonderful about handmade items and a a tie should also be handmade.

As Oscar Wilde observed, “A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life,” everyone should have a fine tie to put their best foot forward. Also, a necktie is one of the few items through which a man can reveal his personality or mood, so make a smart choice when choosing your next necktie.

At Utah Woolen Mills we are the only store in the state that carries 7 fold ties. Come in and check out our collection from Brioni, Robert Talbott, Dolce Punta, Italo Ferreti and Isaia!

Slim Fit Suits | Salt Lake City, Utah

          As we always emphasize, “fitting” is the most important priority for wearing a suit. In general, there are three kinds of suit fit: classic fit which is loose and comfortable, contemporary fit which is also comfortable but yet not loose, and slim fit which is tight and fit wearer close to their body. Along with the development of suits model and baggy clothing trends was gone in early 2000s, many people tend to wear a slim fit suit to show image of neat and agile and modern style.

 

            Today, it’s our pleasure to tell you what parts of slim fit suit are meticulous designed to differ from other models.

            Shoulder: A narrower point-to-point shoulder measurement. Cut to follow the natural line of the body. Smaller and softer shoulder pads also characterize the slim-fit. Create a modern and sharp outline.

 

            Arm and Sleeve: Narrow width of the arm with a higher armhole. Slimmer silhouette fitted through the sleeve. The jackets are usually shorter in length than their regular fit counterparts. Express a slender aesthetic.

            Lapel: Slim fit jackets traditionally have a slightly higher and narrower lapel with an upper gorge.

            Waist: Sharply tapered waist. Slim fit suits allow for a slimmer waist in jackets. Create a streamlined effect.

            Length and buttons: Offering the shortest length to make a sleek silhouette. Most slim suits will have a single-breasted coat with two buttons rather than three with a higher button stance.

            Thigh: slim-fit suit pants will always have flat-front design. Cut close to the body to create a neat line.

            Calf: Sitting closely parallel to each lower leg, with a thorough slim cut.

            Cuff: Generally hugging the ankle, ending in a small leg opening. Build a neat finish.

 

 

As you can see, there are so many details and designs in slim fit suits to create a modern and fresh look. Looking into the future of slim fit suits you will start to notice the same silhouette, with slightly larger features. Wide lapel widths, wide slack cuffs, and wider ties. This is a more Neapolitan style which has really been in vogue recently. Slim is in, and we are happy to fit you up!
