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.
As you may know, King & Allen have a great relationship with our favourite cloth merchant, Holland & Sherry. They are the world-renowned supplier of some of the finest, most luxurious cloths available. And this Spring, you could benefit from our Spring Cloth Offer, which we are running in conjunction with Holland & Sherry.Style Tips & Advice King & Allen News
The women’s suit has a long and storied history that is innovative, exciting and, at times, turbulent. When we think of the “power suit” we often think of it as being a modern invention, sported by caricatures like Gordon Gecko. But we believe that the power suit, itself a bold proclamation of strength at the intersection of fashion and politics, has a longer history when it comes to the story of women’s suiting. So here are some of our standout moments in the history of the woman’s power suit.Style Tips & Advice Celebrity Style Style History
