Conor McGregor’s “Sartorial” Statement to Floyd Mayweather
After months of sniping at one another, UFC Lightweight Champion, Conor McGregor and .boxing great, Floyd Mayweather are finally going toe to toe on 26th August. That’s right – McGregor, who has never boxed before, will be fighting Mayweather, who is to this day, undefeated
Conor McGregor’s Profane Pinstripe
Not content with just trash talk, Conor McGregor showed up to the big fight’s press day in a suit that spoke for itself. What at first glance looks like a classic pinstripe is, in fact, a big “f*** you” to Mayweather… Woven over and over across the cloth of his three-piece suit.
Where can you get a “F*** You” suit?
It’s not the first time we’ve seen such a cloth, although it is certainly the first time we’ve seen it used to make this kind of statement!
The cloth used in this suit was woven by one of our cloth merchants – Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. It was made, bespoke, for Mr. McGregor from their Bedlam Super 130s cloth.
Holland & Sherry also offer a very similar cloth as part of their Signature Collection, where you can have your own name, company or slogan woven into a Super 140s cloth – strictly no profanities though! The wording in the stripe is clearly visible up close but is softly muted from a distance.
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
