Icon of the Month – Tom Hiddleston
You have to feel sorry for Tom Hiddleston. Just as his rumoured romance with pop royalty Taylor Swift hits the tabloids, the global political stage implodes and no one pays a blind bit of notice. Still, we’ve all had a difficult month…
Regardless of ‘Hiddleswift’ column inches, there’s no denying that the young British actor’s star is on the ascension. After the global success of The Night Manager, Hiddleston is the bookies’ favourite to be the next James Bond (currently 2/1). This is in part thanks to some outstanding suit wearing, both on and off the show.
Tom Hiddleston’s Suits
Just like the incumbent Bond, Hiddleston wears suits that compliment his blond hair and blue eyes – focusing on mid-blues and light greys: always in two button, single breasted. Like so many of our Icons across the years, Hiddleston loves a waistcoat, and although he’s no trend setter, everything he wears is simple, smart and fits beautifully. If you like your tailoring elegant and understated, he’s definitely one to watch.

As you may remember, we included the iconic star's ever-evolving look in our recent blog post on the suits that rocked. That’s why we were over the moon when Professor of Film and Cultural Studies, Dr Will Brooker, approached us to make a copy of Bowie’s legendary mustard-yellow suit.Celebrity Style King & Allen News
