The Princes Trust, Hawes and Curtis & FarmAround Goes Back to Nineties Prices!
Hawes and Curtis, quintessentially British shirt makers to the glitterati for a hundred, fashionably sartorial years for the likes of – The Duke of Windsor, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable and Bing Crosby – have teamed up with The Princes Trust to raise money to help more disadvantaged young people find work or start their own business.
A new collection of impeccably tailored, elegant men’s and ladies shirts, plus ties, cufflinks and elegant pocket squares has gone on sale this week, with a distinctive new label featuring Hawes and Curtis and The Prince’s Trust. The collection will be available for three months. Proceeds from sales of the collection will be used to benefit the charity and help more disadvantaged young people into work, education, setting up their own business or training.
The Experts on A Gentleman’s Evening Attire
Hawes and Curtis was started by two forward thinking gentleman’s outfitters, Ralph Hawes and George Frederick Curtis, in the Piccadilly Arcade in 1913. Together, they famously created the ‘Windsor Knot’ for the then Prince of Wales and later the backless evening waistcoat. In the 1930s, it was noted that Mr Curtis was quite the authority on modern, elegant evening dress and prevented a lot of gentlemen for exhibiting unsightly bulges in their evening dress!
Fast forward to 2016 and Hawes and Curtis is run by entrepreneur, businessman and CEO, Touker Suleyman. Back in 2002, Touker rescued the ailing, heritage menswear company for the princely sum of one pound. Today, the company has been successfully reinvented with 25 shops, outposts in Dubai and Germany and a loyal, global following. Commenting on the venture with The Princes Trust, Touker Suleyman said: We are proud to support The Prince’s Trust in its continuous efforts to give more of Britain’s young people the chance to fulfill their potential.”
The Princes Trust Celebrates Forty Years of Helping Young People into Work
As The Prince’s Trust celebrates its fortieth year of helping young people into work, Tara Leathers, Director of Funding for the Prince’s Trust said:
“We are very proud to partner with Hawes & Curtis for this exclusive collection. This year we are celebrating 40 years of helping young people move into work, education or training. 825,000 young people have been supported by The Prince’s Trust since 1976. But our job is far from over; there are still many young people who need support to turn their lives around. Our collaboration with Hawes & Curtis will raise vital funds for The Trust as we support 100 more young people each day. We are hugely grateful to Hawes & Curtis for creating this very stylish collection and for their enthusiasm and commitment to our work.”
