Harveys Menswear Share The 3 Things You NEED In Your Autumn Wardrobe
Throw it back to 1999 and the town of Sevenoaks looks quite different. Heck, there was even a 13th century cattle market still taking place every week! Businesses have come and gone in this quaint corner of Kent… but not Harveys Menswear, which stands where it’s always stood. This independently owned boutique remains a mecca for premium men’s clothing and accessories. Can you imagine how many fashion movements this store has lived through?
This year, the menswear industry was valued at a staggering £448 billion worldwide, with £15.4 billion of that figure generated in the UK alone.
From Suits To Streetwear, A Cut Above The Rest
There are a few reasons why Harveys Menswear stands head and shoulders above the crowd.
Our favourite is that every item you can see across their two floors has been meticulously curated by owner, Rick Staplehurst. Rick certainly knows his way around the world of men’s fashion, having been in the industry for over 16 years.
As well as the day-to-day running of the business, Rick attends fashion trade shows – most recently, ‘Pitti Uomo’ in Florence, Italy – and is a regular at the showrooms of various brands. Of course, his far-reaching industry network helps too. The result? A totally curated edit of luxury and quality menswear.
In-House Styling And Tailoring
Rick has been integral to the growth of Harveys Menswear since he joined the team in 2017, before eventually buying the business and taking full ownership in 2020. His business acumen and bonafide eye for style have taken Harveys Menswear to the next level.
Quality comes before all else and the designer brands stocked here reflect this: BOSS, GANT, Canali, ETON and PAIGE to name just a few. Aside from clothing, you’ll find an exclusive collection of accessories – belts, pocket squares, ties, sunglasses – and footwear.
Personal shopping and styling
Harveys Menswear prides itself on its personalised experience, which runs through the entire fabric of the business. Personal shopping and styling advice are part of the service, to help you find your own unique savoir-faire. Private appointments are available for wedding and groom parties too for a more intimate experience.
A few alterations and customisations can transform an off-the-rack suit into something seriously sharp. Harveys Menswear have an in-house tailor and offer an alteration service to give you the perfect fit that brings out your individuality and ensures your suit will last longer. There’s even a same day service if you’re in a hurry!
Men! Here’s 3 Things You Need In Your Autumn Wardrobe
To mark Rick’s 3-year anniversary as owner, we stopped by and asked him to select three must-have pieces for the AW23 season. From casual to commuter, leisurewear to luxury, suits to streetwear, here’s Rick’s edit:
The knitted polo shirt – for understated elegance.
BOSS – GORILLO Dark Blue Structured Cotton Regular Fit Knitted Polo
Rick says, “Let me tell you, knitted polo shirts are going nowhere. The polo is a year-round hit and a staple in every wardrobe. Anything with the BOSS label is instantly a bestseller, for very good reason.”
The blue suit that takes you from leisure to luxury.
Canali – Denim Blue Micro Check Fabric Modern Fit Suit
Rick says, “Canali is a luxury Italian fashion house that has continuously impressed for over 85 years. The craftsmanship in every Canali piece is extraordinary. What I love about this suit is its modern fit and stylish denim blue colour.”
Street style that makes a statement.
Psycho Bunny – RYE Graphic Tee in Chambray Blue
Rick says, “Psycho Bunny is all about self-expression. These cool and casual t-shirts combine luxurious fabrics with vibrant colours and exclusive designs so you’re sure to be turning heads for all the right reasons.”
