The King & Allen guide to… Prince Of Wales Suits
There is a nothing more quintessentially British than Prince of Wales suits. To wear it is to wear an icon of British heritage – a timeless style that will be enjoyed and treasured for a lifetime.
Not only is it steeped in British history, but it occupies a very practical place in a gentleman’s wardrobe since it looks as magnificent in the office as it does at an event. Moreover, they have an air of great prestige, in part because of the history and in part because of its rarity. It’s very hard to find off the peg and almost impossible to have any choice of pattern if you do.
At King & Allen, we stock over 50 different styles and patterns. We have seen a huge surge in popularity recently for, not just the classic grey checks, but also for other colours (such as blue and brown). This is a suit style that goes beyond the plain solid colours but is not as business-focused as a pinstripe.
