Local Heroes: Remus Uomo


When you mention the brand Remus Uomo, you instantly think; chic, stylish, masculine, Italian.
Remus Uomo is all these things, but it has its roots firmly in Northern Ireland.

The modern and stylish offshoot of menswear wholesalers and retailers Douglas & Grahame, Remus Uomo has been bringing Italian tailoring to the UK for many years and has been a stalwart in many Northern Irish men's wardrobes - I remember getting a Remus Uomo wool blazer to wear for my confirmation.

Not one to rest on its laurels or to allow changing tastes and trends to pass them by. the company has expanded with an exceptional state of the art showroom and business centre at its headquarters in Carrickfergus.
They recently held a press conference to showcase the Summer 2015 collections and invited local press, bloggers and stylists to see the new ranges.

The new summer collections marry traditional tailoring technique with a modern colour palette and silhouettes.

The focal colour for the season is vibrant blue, with shades of inky navy and washed aqua to complement it. Introduce this colour to your wardrobe for the summer, maybe at a wedding or event, and it will be a bold, fresh and interesting change from the usual grey or black.

Italian styling is applied to update and refresh some iconic menswear like grandad collared shirts, Harrington jackets and Macintosh coats

 Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the event, but they were kind enough to forward me on a press pack and the opportunity to call into the flagship store in Belfast to see the new collections in person and I couldn't resist taking a few candid shots of my own.

that amazing blue in the flesh (or should I say in the fabric)

The store has a devoted wedding section and many of their suits are MNM (mix n match) meaning you can pick up an extra pair of trousers or just buy separates for a more versatile wardrobe.

Thank you to the team for their support and the editorial images. You can't go wrong with a visit to the store if you have an event coming up for some affordable Italian sartorial style with a true Irish twist.
