Tuk Tuk AW14
British menswear company TukTuk was founded in 2009 and in the relatively short five years they’ve been going, they’ve established a distinctive style and going from strength to strength. Founded by Mark Scholes after relocating to Sri Lanka for work commitments, the new tropical surroundings he found himself in was to be the catalyst and beginnings of the brand. With £200, a head full of ideas and British designs, whilst being surrounded by local fabric; TukTuk was born.
Taking inspiration from as close as Manchester or as far as Tropical countries, TukTuk uniquely blend both elements with a close attention to detail. They use some of the best factories and fabric mills across Asia, some of which have been in business for more than 70 years. In the five years they’ve be going, they have built up an established market following within the UK and internationally.
For their Autumn/Winter 2014 collection they continue to fuse British tailoring with flavours of the Tropics. Their range of floral and pattern shirts are tastefully presented with plain and checkered options also. All of which are manufactured in selected quantities to maintain quality and keeping their options fresh and up to date.
TukTuk have moved on from their beginnings, so as well as their impressive shirts they also have a range of jackets, trousers and accessories available. All of which are made with the same attention to details that their shirting is. The current collection is available from TukTuk’s website, but we don’t think they’ll hang around for long so you better be quick!
