Oliver and James Phelps with David Brooke


THERE was nothing Weasley about the Phelps brothers when they joined other stars of the latest Harry Potter film on the red carpet last week.

For Oliver and James Phelps, who play the Weasley twins in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, were dressed in made-to-measure three-piece suits made by Harpenden tailor Mathieson & Brooks (M&BT).

Founder and director David Brooke said: “James and Oliver’s image is so important for them and I was really excited to be asked to design their suits for the premiere.”

David first worked with James and Oliver when he made the celebrity team captain’s golf trousers for the Samuel L Jackson Shooting Stars Benefit 2010 in Switzerland.

Oliver Phelps said: “I always try to look smart when going to interviews and premieres but I have real trouble finding a suit with long enough arms. Working on my suit with David, we were able to get the measurements just perfect. It fits like a dream and the detail is incredible.”
