“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.
