Kingsman Suit

“The suit is the modern gentleman’s armour. The Kingsmen are the new knights.” – Harry Hart

I’ve been obsessed with the Kingsman suit styles ever since the first movie launched in 2014. One of the main things I loved about both films was how they brought traditional tailoring onto the modern cinema screen with style and panache, with subtle nods to established style elements intertwined with contemporary designs. I was a huge fan of Eggsy’s suit, the crisp cut and suave details meant it stood head and shoulders above any other movie suit in recent years.

Having said that, I’d never really been brave enough to try and style a double-breasted suit and felt the look might end up feeling a bit dated when I wore it. However, thanks to the gentlemen at Scotch & Rich, who gifted me one of their suits, I was able to style the look out and took a wander around London to see how it feels and wears in the heat of the city.

The spring/summer months hail the beginning of wedding season and thus the opportunity to up your style game from every-day suit to a look that highlights the importance of the day, and encapsulates your personal style and character. Hardy Amies were kind enough to invite me to go in and style a new outfit which would work at any wedding. I achieved this by using classic themes with modern tailoring styles to create a sharp outfit any man can pull off.

Men's Style: Summer/Autumn Casual Styling

The transition between Autumn and Summer is always tricky to navigate when it comes to outfits. Cold, crisp mornings give way to warm afternoons in the sun before cooling again into chilly evenings, so putting together a style that suits these elements can be difficult to pull off. What you need is something that is light enough to be comfortable to wear when things get warmer but not so thin that you’ll feel the cold when a strong wind picks up. So, I put together this outfit as a way of crossing two seasons with one look…

Jack Wills - Bloomsbury Suit Autumn Tailoring

With the recent cold snap that has descended on the UK, I decided to put together a tailored outfit designed for all your seasonally-transitional needs. To help me with this, Jack Wills decided to offer me one of their new Bloomsbury suits to use in my outfit. So with the mercury slowly falling and the sun getting lower, I hit the streets of London to see how my new look stood up against the UK’s somewhat temperamental weather

Men's Suit Style - Grey Suit & Red Gingham

Summer tailoring has always been something of a problem for me. Often it takes bold use of colour, accessories and clever detailing to create an outfit that looks effortlessly dapper and suitable for the summer season. Fortunately, with the help of Hawes & Curtis, I had the opportunity to create three different tailored looks for summer that only use one suit but incorporate different elements and accessories for different styles. You can see them below and leave a comment with your feedback on the outfits.
