We made Iron Maiden’s drummer a dinner suit – and he trashed it immediately…
This is a photograph of Nicko McBrain, the drummer for Iron Maiden, wearing a King & Allen dinner suit for an amazing underwater photo shoot. King & Allen had donated the suit in support of a charity called Fresh2o, which aims to draw attention to the fact that over 4000 children die each day from contaminated water.
Nicko tried the suit on, and it fitted him perfectly first time. Delighted with his newfound sartorial elegance, he then jumped straight into the swimming pool where the shoot had been set up – destroying it immediately…
It was a shame to see a suit get trashed so quickly – but it was all for a good cause!
King & Allen was invited to attend an exhibition of the works, at Grace of Belgravia in London. Here’s co-founder Adam King with one of the signed prints that was available to buy on the night.

Linen has been used for many thousands of years. Indeed, flax fibres were found in a prehistoric cave in Georgia, dating from around 36,000 years ago! Nowadays, linen is a lightweight, breathable fabric that is particularly popular during the summer months or in hotter climates. It's also a vegan fabric, which is perfect for those looking for a suit free from animal products.Style Tips & Advice Weddings
