Surmesur/Harry Rosen/Hugo Boss event Wed.,May 21st, 2014@Multiple Locations
By Alvin Wong+Bill Kwan
It was the reopening of the Boss Shop at the Harry Rosen flagship store with the theme” Daring feats meets daring Fashion”. The private Customer Cocktail event with an appearance by Hugo Boss skipper Alex Thomson and hosted by fashion icon Glen Baxter. The Passed food was a variety of seafood consisting of lobster and prawns. Also a grilled halibut and butter lettuce with crispy shallot was served. Music was provided by DJ-Daniel Buchman and Nate Wize of Bello Sound. The invited audience was in line for prizes such as: a 300 Sailing Notebook, 300 Boss Man Fragrance, Autographed Hardcover Sailing Book and Regatta Watches. The Harry Rosen reopening was a great opportunity to view the new and improved Harry Rosen flagship store.
The Surmesur event was across town in the east part of the city and they didn’t disappoint their target client at this store showcase. The store had Passed food, multiple open bars and Sharp Magazine involved in this event. The packed tailor store with courteous staff were on hand to serve the crowd in this outlet. The price of the tailored suits, shirts and accessories are reasonably priced and as a smaller non mega store like Harry Rosen, some people may find this store more of their style. Either way, both of these male clothing outlets are at the top of their game in the retail fashion field. Loyalty aside and comparing apples to oranges, both have great clothes, great service and a good reputation. I would shop at both stores for different reasons and would welcome some more edge in their clothing wear.
