Being guys with an athletic build that don’t exactly conform to the industry size norms, we were the first to test the fit, feel and style for the first time. We’re pleased to report that we were not disappointed. It’s moments like this that remind us why we started Hale, and why it was so important to involve as many of you as we could to make sure we created a set of clothes that we, and you, can wear confidently and without compromise.

Last week we held the first photoshoot for the new range, modelled superbly by Harlequins very own Henry Cheeseman, and captured beautifully by Ian Harrison. As a professional rugby player, Henry does not conform to the menswear industry ‘average’ size, and along with many of his team mates has in the past has often struggled with finding clothing that fits, looks good and is comfortable to wear.

As a professional rugby player, Henry does not conform to the menswear industry  ‘average’, and along with many of his team mates has in the past has often struggled with finding clothing that fits, looks good and is comfortable to wear.

‘Freedom of movement’ is our inspiration, driving us to create classic, elegant and perfectly fitting menswear garments for everyday use

Henry, along with several other premiership players, PTs and fitness fanatics, has always experienced problems with finding the right menswear. Too tight, too short, restrictive… often the solution was simply to compromise on fit, comfort or style – or just wear training gear. Together they have been instrumental in helping us define our sizing, fit and ambitions for our first menswear range. It therefore made complete sense for us to invite them to be among the first to test out the fit and feel of the final products, and see if they wanted to do a bit of modelling too…

The Hale Classic tailored Piqué Polo Shirt – Special finishing at key stress points including the upper arms provides the right balance of comfort, style and fit. Henry is modelling a size L Polo in Clean White

We couldn’t be happier with the final shots. We think they’re looking awesome. The tees, polos, shirts and jeans not only fit beautifully (in all the right places) but look and feel good too. Using high quality cotton coupled with meticulous attention to detail, our clothes compliment stronger body shapes with just the right amount of stretch to provide flexibility in key problem areas such as the shoulders, upper arms, legs and thighs.

As always, we’d love to know what you think… There’s so much more to show you all, and we’ll be dropping more information around pricing, sizing and pre-orders very soon.

So stay tuned…
