Icon of the Month – Brad Pitt

This month sees the release of By the Sea, the first film Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have starred in together since they met on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith – 10 years ago. Reactions to the film have swayed from one pole to the other, but what is in no doubt is that in the last 10 years the pair have transcended from attractive movie stars to cultural icons. From his cameo in True Romance, through the Oceans trilogy and up to and including Fury, Pitt has maintained a flawless image – the human personification of ‘effortlessly cool’. This persona is very much reflected in his suit wearing: he’ll wear a three piece with no tie, or a pocket square with no tie or even wear his tie loosened. It’s a marrying of a relaxed attitude and an attention to detail that works well for him, but could work equally well for the King & Allen customer. Ideal situations would be a smart but informal event, such as an evening wedding, a theatre trip or a date.

Below is a collection of our top 8 Brad Pitt suits from across the years…

The colour, the patch pockets, the scarf – this is a bold ensemble but it works brilliantly.

The bold pinstripes and peak lapels are 1930s, but the cut is very modern. The result is striking.
