Icon of the Month – Daniel Radcliffe
While so many other child stars have gone off the rails or disappeared into obscurity, Daniel Radcliffe has managed to steer the post-Potter course exceptionally well, choosing very different roles and therefore avoiding the inevitable pigeon-holing. His style is very much a reflection of this desire to show his breadth of character. He’s prepared to take a risk and show some range, from conservative blues and greys to bolder checks and accessories.
Moreover, at 5’ 5”, Daniel Radcliffe is a role model for short men everywhere. His slim, tailored suits and tonal colouring serves to lengthen his body so that, while short, he appears perfectly proportioned.
Below is a selection of our favourite Daniel Radcliffe suits from across the years:
This suit just about made the cut because of the fantastic cloth pattern. The tailoring and fit look a bit ‘high street’.
A simple, smart 3-piece paired with a lovely navy wool tie.
A stunning 12mm chalk-stripe paired with a silk tie and white pocket square. Pure class.
A word of warning to short men – be wary of long ties! But the suit itself is lovely.
Excelent colour matching: the trousers to the tie; the jacket to the shirt stripes. No mean feat!
This maroon suit will not be to everyone’s taste, but the fitting is excellent and you have to respect the ‘nod to mod’.
Tonal greys against a three-piece worsted – and a 7 button waistcoat!
There’s an argument that Radcliffe is simply too young to pull off a midnight blue DB. But it’s still a great suit!
An increasing number of companies are adopting a less formal office dress code these days, with fewer businesses expecting their male employees to show up in a suit and tie. Instead, the new watchword is ‘smart-casual’. But where does that leave the suit lover?Style Tips & Advice Business Style
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.Style Tips & Advice Style History
