King & Allen celebrate – The Suits of Mad Men
As the TV phenomenon that is Mad Men airs it’s final episode this spring, it seems appropriate that K&A takes a moment to honour the show that has brought us a host of style icons – from the Prince of Wales checked, double breasted Roger Stirling to the royal blue two-pieces of young upstart Pete Campbell, Mad Men inspired a raising of the sartorial bar never seen before by a TV show.

His tailored grey suits and impeccable style made him one of TV’s most celebrated rogues – a veritable shark in sharkskin. I’m sure Marks & Spencers will miss him dearly… sales of white pocket squares will never be the same again!
