A Huddersfield-based tailor will be stocking UFC Champion, Conor McGregor’s, controversial suit complete with provocative phrase woven into the pinstripe.
The Irish MMA fighter wore the suit, which is made from cloth designed and manufactured in Huddersfield, when he confronted opponent Floyd Mayweather at a press conference before their much-anticipated fight which takes place on Saturday 26th August in Las Vegas.
Owen Scott Bespoke Tailors have been given the exclusive UK rights to the cloth by the manufacturer, Huddersfield Fine Worsteds (HFW), and will be stocking suits and accessories made from it.
Scott Hufton, Owner of Owen Scott, said: “Huddersfield has a renowned reputation for producing some of the finest cloths in the world so it’s fantastic to see that a Huddersfield product has reached a worldwide audience and gained the recognition it deserves.”
“We’ve been working with HFW to commission the same cloth used for Conor McGregor’s suit and we’re really excited to be able to offer the suits to our customers.
“Our initial plan was to offer a bespoke suit made in the cloth but, having already received a number of enquiries, we felt it was necessary to make some off the rack suits as well.”
Ahead of the fight on Saturday, off the peg and bespoke suits, as well as ties and handkerchiefs, are now available.
Currently there are only 100 suits available.
