This week, Roseberry Tailoring have been delighted to see some of our work featured on the front and back pages of the national newspapers, sports pages such as Sky Sports News and over many different places on Social Media. Ann Budge, owner of Heart of Midlothian Football Club, commissioned a beautiful jacket to wear when addressing the fans at the opening of the new Hearts FC main stand at Tynecastle.
A number of weeks ago, we received a telephone call from Ann Park, head of Commercial Operations at Tynecastle to ask would we be interested in working with the club to help create something special to mark the occasion. Ann had revealed at that point that the club had commissioned an official tartan, and that it would be nice if we could help create a showpiece using the tartan for Ann Budge to wear on the day the new stand was to be unveiled.
Our next step was to work with the club on a design befitting of the wearer. We had a fantastic time discussing ideas and exchanging pictures of likely styles, and in the end, the below style was chosen. We were excited by the final design draft, and we began to work on making the design a reality. The process took a few weeks to complete, but when the final product arrived, it was better than we had hoped. After a couple of tweaks to the fit, we delivered the garment for the final time ahead of the match to mark the opening of the new stand.
We’d like to thank Heart of Midlothian FC, Ann Park and Ann Budge for placing their trust in us to work on such an exciting project. The jacket looks fantastic, and I’m looking forward to seeing it on many more occasions in the years to come.
