Jason Manford’s Guide to Dressing for a Wedding

Recently the stand-up comedian Jason Mansford posted a rather funny homage to the life cycle of a wedding suit on his Facebook page. We thought we’d share it with you.

Here’s Jason’s post:

When trying on a wedding suit in a changing room you have to prepare it for all the evening’s eventualities!

 

 

1) the ‘that’s right, I’ve been invited to the day do AND the night do’ look

 

2) the ‘I’ve had my second puddings now where’s the dance-floor’ look

 

3) the ‘dancing should be a personal statement, and that statement is “Jason’s had a Baileys!”‘ look

 

4) the ‘I really should’ve left an hour ago’ look

 

5) and finally the ‘what did that @#?%$ just say?’ look.

 

 

Of course all King & Allen customers are impeccably well behaved at weddings, but I’m sure we have observed some of these stages from afar!

Hype For Pinstripe

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern. But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.

Peaky Blinders: why we love Aunt Polly’s suit style

The new Peaky Blinders series is back with a bang and we’re not just talking about the storylines. As ever, Tommy and his crew look as sharp as the razor blades the real-life Peaky Blinder gang were rumoured to stitch into the peak of their flat caps.
