Menswear Fit For A Socialite - Where It All Began

Revival are delighted to bring you the ultimate late 1930s - 1940s replica suit... this is how we went about it

Revival Vintage Shirts

In 2015 we developed a range of authentic cotton 1930s and 1940s style mens shirts.

Vintage Style Shirts

We have been delighted with the feedback and are now proud to offer a choice of around 20 styles at any one time. We have spotted our shirts at events around the country but also know they have been used in TV, film & theatre productions so they really must look the part. Towards the end of this year we are introducing a couple of premier cloths with superior detailing to form part of our prime Socialite range plus some new stripes and colours for our standard set.

Revival Go The Full Monty

Monty Burton Tag

Buoyed by the success of our shirts alongside our own label trousers and waistcoats we started to think seriously about going the 'full Monty' with a complete men's tailored suit. What better affirmation than when we were fortunate enough to purchase a stunning original 1939 Monty Burton wool suit. Not only that by sheer chance we came across a local Huddersfield manufacturer of bespoke suits when we visited a neighbouring business. Thereafter the birth and subsequent production of our Socialite suits for men was a foregone conclusion. For a company more attuned to producing a modern cut, with a couple of tweaks along the way they have made a superb job and we can't wait to share them with you. Our suits really are the ultimate choice for a guy who wants to feel at the top of their game 40s style.

It includes a beautiful double-breasted jacket, notchback trousers which are exact copies of the original with all the precise features of the Burton such as wrap-around pockets, functioning wrist buttonholes and stripe sleeve linings. We have included a double-breasted waistcoat in the set which looks superb in its own right. This version of the Socialite suit was featured in The Chap Magazine's article on lounge suits and we agree that it's a fantastic choice for wedding attire.

Bespoke - Worth The Wait

Our expert tailors weave their own pure wool cloths so while we have selected the classic navy pinstripe if you are prepared to wait the 6-8 weeks average wait time you can select from a choice of alternative cloths or personalise your suit with a wealth of other features on offer. These include linings with photographic images, embroidered sentimental messages or dates, built-in hankies, Columbian stitching etc.

Below Mark wears his waistcoat with a personalised photographic lining.  You can book an appointment for a suit fitting and discuss bespoke options by calling our showroom in Huddersfield 01484 422255.
