Winter 2020, our brands, styles and colours, and the upcoming 2021 wedding season at Gabucci

Ali talks about this Winter season at Gabucci, Christmas gifts and about the 2021 wedding season.

We’re still doing bright colours when it comes to shirts. And the sizes, again, we go up from sizes Small to 4XL. So there’s always something to buy for him, for a surprise.

Ali

At Gabucci our role is as ever to make you look as good as possible and now that extends to online as well as in store sales. A big part of that is to provide you with advice via email or phone to help you find exactly the right clothes that fit perfectly and are not going to be seen everywhere. This goes for buying for yourself or as a gift for someone special.

Much of our stock is unique to us where source our fabrics, choose the patterns, trimmings and buttons and have the garments produced in Europe, mostly Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany to create our own distinctive short runs. We keep the colours warm and use distinctive patterns and contrasting trimming on many items to create unique and stylish clothes to be proud of. 

Where you are able to visit us, we tailor them in-house to fit you perfectly, otherwise we can change fit as a postal service where required.

In addition, we stock the latest collection of iconic Claudi Lugli shirts and hand made John Smedley knitwear and in particular their wonderful Merino wool garments to keep you warm this winter and the coming spring. We are adding more to the range over the next few weeks too.

If you would like to find out more, come and visit us if you can or if not use our contact form to get in touch or give us a call.

Where do our suits and knitwear come from?

We’re very proud at Gabucci of the clothes we sell, whether produced for us or from brands like John Smedley and we are particularly proud of how they are made.

It’s important that natural materials are used and clothes are produced sustainably and with as little impact on the environment as possible. Key to this is the humble sheep, key to much of Britain’s past wealth and heritage and a familiar site in our local Cotswold hills.

So this video is dedicated to the beginnings of most of our suits and knitwear, the sheep and the start of the process of creating a wool garment.

Spring and summer 2020, our summer crease free jackets and options for summer trousers here at Gabucci

Ali talks about the new season in terms of lightweight summer jackets that are easy to look after and extremely practical.

Gabucci is all about colour and fit, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be casual.

Ali

At Gabucci our role is to make you look as good as possible but we also want to make sure the clothes we sell suit you and your lifestyle too.

We are well known for sourcing our fabrics and choosing the patterns, trimmings and buttons to create our own distinctive short runs. For summer collections we also add a range of jackets that look indistinguishable from linen but are much easier to care for and wear casually. And we match these with summer trousers, shorts and jeans to provide a casual staple that will last for years. 

As with our suits, they are usually colourful and individual with delightful touches to make the clothes special. And we can tailor them in-house to fit you perfectly though with a more relaxed fit and stretch materials in the trousers, these can be more suited to wear off the peg.
