Ballet dancer demonstrates that a suit should not restrict dancefloor moves

A good suit does not restrict your movement is the message in a new campaign produced for tailors Oscar Hunt by Melbourne based production house Wildebeest.

The two-minute dance video shows professional ballet dancer Chris Rodgers-Wilson’s classical training facing off against Oscar Hunt co-owner Jules Lichtenstein’s freestyle moves. Both men are dressed in made-to-measure suits designed to reflect their own personality.

Filmed at Melbourne’s Northcote Town Hall earlier this year by production company Wildebeest, the clip displays the flexibility of the Oscar Hunt’s made-to-measure garments.

Oscar Hunt’s GM Chris Edwards said the video was the best way to show how there is no right or wrong when it comes to personal style.“Our business philosophy has always been centred on individuality and that’s something Oscar Hunts prides itself on delivering,” he stated in a company media release.

“These are two polar opposite looks, tailored-made to match the bodies and movements of both individuals,” he continued. “We thought there was no better way to demonstrate the durability of precisely-tailored menswear.

“And while we don’t necessarily recommend the extreme dancing displayed in the video when wearing a suit – the video shows that a well-tailored suit shouldn’t restrict your movement or your ability to bust a move.”
