Icon of the Month – Idris Elba

Idris Elba deserves Icon status on the strength of this photograph alone. At 6ft, 3” he pulls off this double-breasted suit perfectly, reaffirming what we’ve said many times before in The Stitch – that if you’re tall and well built a double-breasted suit is definitely worth considering.

As well as an actor, he’s also a (proper) DJ, a rapper and can produce and direct. He’s also tipped to be the next Bond – a role he would no doubt excel in.

Elba’s wardrobe is as versatile as his acting talent, which, considering he played both Stringer Bell and Nelson Mandela, is quite a statement.

But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.
