As the Official Outfitter for The British & Irish Lions’ 125th Anniversary Tour to Australia in 2013, Thomas Pink has created an exclusive menswear collection to mirror the Lions formal wear.
Hong Kong RFU rugby players, wearing various items from the collection, mingled with VIP guests at the Hong Kong luanch this week. Guests sipped the Thomas Pink Collins cocktail concocted by Boujis mixologist, William de la Praudière, while the Boujis Club Managers displayed the sartorial elegance of their Thomas Pink uniforms, making the connection between Thomas Pink, the Lions and Boujis apparent.
Thomas Pink will provide the finest players of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales with the official formal wear looks for the tour, including the emblematic blazer, tie and unique evening wear that epitomizes the British style of the iconic Jermyn Street based shirt maker.
Signature items include: a velvet smoking jacket, vintage print merino wool and silk scarf as well as stocking fillers such as gold plated cufflinks, socks, ties and boxers. The Lions Collection by Thomas Pink is now available to purchase in both Thomas Pink stores in Hong Kong.
