Icon of the Month Special – Nick Wooster

Every month in the King & Allen e-magazine, The Stitch , we feature a famous person who dresses well. In the latest edition we celebrate a person who is becoming famous because he dresses well. Nick Wooster is a style blogger and retail advisor based in New York, whose ability to consistently put a great outfit together has made him a ‘street style’ star, culminating in a mention in this very blog in an article above about accessorising a suit.

Below are our Top 10 examples of how Wooster cuts a great dash, using combinations of cloth, cut, colour and, of course, clever use of accessories:


10. What we love:

  • The cut and length of the jacket.
  • The dichotomy between the conservatism of the charcoal suit and the shoes/short trousers.

What we don’t love:

  • The shirt sleeves look so long and baggy that they’re actually affecting the fall of the jacket sleeves.
  • The sunglasses.



9. What we love:

  • The colour combination
  • The fold of the pocket square
  • The short tie pin

What we don’t love:

  • The cut of the jacket on the shoulders
  • The length of the tie



8. What we love:

  • The cut of the jacket
  • The contrast coloured buttons
  • The rope head sleeve

What we don’t love:

  • Nothing!



7. What we love:

  • The Look – a modern take on an american WW2 pilot
  • The gold collar pin
  • The combination of shirt, tie and tweed colours.

What we don’t love:

  • The sunglasses



6. What we love:

  • The balance of summer smart and summer stylish

What we don’t love:

  • The shoes – the look would work much better if they were brown.



5. What we love:

  • The cut of the jacket
  • The milled finish of the cloth
  • The tie bar (and the way it makes the top of the tie slightly protrude)
  • The brave combination of striped shirt and checked tie

What we don’t love:

  • Nothing!



4. What we love:

  • The use of three different tweeds (note that the tie matches the trousers) and the juxtaposition with the casual blue shirt.

What we don’t love:

  • The length of the shirt sleeves – shocking!



3. What we love:

  • The unique colour of the suit
  • The subtle blue hue of the pocket square
  • The button downed collar on the shirt

What we don’t love:

  • The matching tie and suit
  • The sunglasses (again!)



2. What we love:

  • Everything! This is a perfectly executed winter business suit in chalk stripe flannel.

What we don’t love:

  • Nothing.



1. What we love:

  • The layering – a heavy wool suit combined with a thin navy cardigan – perfect for a crisp autumn day.
  • The fact that the patterns on the jacket and tie should clash – but don’t.
  • The glasses – finally!

What we don’t love:

  • Nothing.
