The Royal Exchange Arcade boutique show us how to do 'modern classic' menswear
A man about Manchester needs a few failsafe outfits in his wardrobe arsenal: an occasion suit, smart work attire and casual clobber to take him from Spinningfields to the Northern Quarter on a Friday night. Simple. Though simple needn’t mean boring - never underestimate the transformative powers of a great pair of jeans, an exceptionally made blazer and a well-fitting shirt. Just ask David Beckham.
'If in doubt stick with the classics’ say Lanigan & Hulme, The Royal Exchange Arcade’s bourgeoning independent menswear boutique. They specialise in classic clothing for modern men sourced from reliable British heritage brands. We’re talking Hackett, Crombie and much more updated seasonally.
“We provide for all guys, whether young or old, who want great quality, well-crafted British clothes,” says co-owner Phil Lanigan, a talented tailor.
And they do. Whether it's jeans that can last the distant, a new wedding outfit or you’re investing in a made-to-measure suit, Lanigan & Hulme are on hand as Manchester's one-stop-shop for stylish men's clothing.
