On Wednesday Oct. 18th – Surmesur (French Candian Clothier) hosted the “Men of MALA” at their Chicago location.

Surmesur created 25 customized pocket squares to honor the Men of MALA. Since its inception, Surmesur has been actively involved in the communities where they live and work, most notably by participating in events and fundraising campaigns. In addition, Surmesur encourages all of its employees go get involved in a variety of philanthropic activities in their communities.

Surmesur offers a unique shopping experience in four easy steps: choosing among more than 10,000 fabrics; selecting the cut and other options; having measurements taken; and fitting. The online design tool, The Studio, even lets you see your creation before you order it. You will receive your masterpiece four to six weeks later. If any adjustments are required, the in-house tailors will take care of them at no cost to you.

The event was sponsored by the luxury high end Scotch, Dalmore Scotch.

The legend of The Dalmore dates back to 1263, when Colin of Kintail, Chief of the clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III of Scotland from a charging stag. As a reward the grateful King, granted Colin of Kintail the lands of Eilean Donan, the motto ‘Luceo Non Uro’, which translates to ‘I Shine, Not Burn’ and the right to use the 12-pointed Royal Stag as the Mackenzie clan crest. The distillery itself was established many years later in 1839 by entrepreneur Alexander Matheson, who after 28 years decided it was time to pass the distillery onto new owners. Andrew and Charles Mackenzie came forward, and as members of the clan Mackenzie they brought with them the iconic 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem, the caberfeidh which has adorned every bottle of The Dalmore.

The event was the first partnership between MALA, Surmesur and The Dalmore Brand. We are looking forward to future collaborations.
