After 34 years as New Zealand’s leading menswear brand, we have revealed our feminine side. W by Working Style is a fresh new collection made up entirely of impeccably tailored garments for women.
Made in Portugal by one of the world’s leading ateliers, W by Working Style is a carefully considered, elegant collection of over 30 styles that are Made to Order.
Available in our Auckland and Christchurch stores, we have designed subtly different collections for each store, showcasing a range that is sympathetic to each individual region.
The perfect jacket is the base for the collection, with polished cotton, velvet, silk and tweed just a few of the fabrications on offer. The options really are limitless.
A truly unique proposition in New Zealand, women can make an appointment to meet with a W by Working Style consultant and play a key role in creating their perfect wardrobe. Over their beverage of choice they can hone their vision, trusting that everything will be taken care of to deliver contemporary tailoring crafted to their exact measurements and specifications.
We have also included local makers in the creation of the collection, with the brand’s very first New Zealand shirtmaker in charge of making a range for W by Working Style, including a tailored and boyfriend fit. It’s been wonderful to reconnect and build a relationship with them while highlighting their incredible craftmanship.
When you enter the world of W by Working Style, it is all about you.
We give you the tools and the power to create your own bespoke garments with the help of our talented
W by Working Style tailors.
Choose from a double- or single-breasted jacket style with the option of various collar and lapel shapes, alongside pant widths and lengths that work perfectly for you. Pick your fabric and your fit and design it your way.
The options really are endless with our Made to Order service.
1. Book an Appointment
Book a no-obligation appointment with one of our W tailors. Our collection and services are available in our Auckland and Christchurch stores. You are also more than welcome to pop into any of our stores at any time to view the collection and ask any questions you may have.
2. The Initial Fitting
During the initial fitting, our tailors will take the time to sit down with you and discuss your needs and preferences in order to guide you in the right direction. We have a wide range of fabrics and linings from some of the world’s most highly respected fabric mills to choose from, and our W tailors are here to guide you through the process. Select from the fit blocks displayed in store and we will then create your individual silhouette to ensure the perfect fit. Your measurements will be recorded in our system and relayed to our skilled ateliers in New Zealand and Portugal.
3. Review and Adjust
Your garments will be ready to be fitted around six weeks from your order date. You will be invited back in store to meet with your original tailor, who will help assess the fit and arrange for any further adjustments that need to be made. We appoint our own in-house tailors to complete the alterations to ensure these can be done promptly, and to our high standards.
4. The Finished Piece
Once all alterations are complete, your garments will be ready to be collected or delivered to your address. We love the opportunity to work with clients and allow them to experience the joy that comes from having bespoke garments created just for you. And now that we have your preferences and measurements on file, reordering is simply a matter of selecting your next design and cloth.
