When Daniel Craig stepped out for the premiere of 'No Time to Die,' wearing a pink, double-breasted, velvet tuxedo jacket, it caused a sartorial moment that we haven't seen for some time. At King & Allen, we have been fans of the pink suit for a number of years, so we were over the moon to see James Bond himself embracing this vibrant and multi-faceted colour. Read on to see how you can incorporate more pink into your suit wardrobe and how to get the Daniel Craig look...
The Full Pink Suit
We just adore this pink suit, worn by father-of-the-bride, James. With a contrast grey waistcoat (with a subtle pink check) and a polka dot lining, this was a fantastic look!
There are so many different hues of pink to choose from and the fabric choice will often affect how the colour looks in different lights. For a bolder look, you might go for a velvet (like Daniel Craig) and for a more subtle, laid-back look, you could try a linen suit in a lighter pink.
If you're not quite ready for the full pink suit, you might want to consider having a pink waistcoat, jacket or trousers, paired with a more subtle colour. You can then highlight the pink through the lining choice, buttonholes or a pocket square. This is an elegant, unique look that allows you to be daring!
Having just a splash of pink can really liven up a more subtle, traditional shade. The best way to do this is through accessories, such as a pink tie or pocket square. This isn't just for weddings, as a pink tie can make a splash with the right business suit and goes really well with a dark navy.

The lining of the suit is often overlooked but, at King & Allen, this is often one of the most fun moments for our customers. 'The lining choice is a chance for you to show some flair,' says Jake Allen, 'even if your suit is quite plain, the lining can really liven it up and show off your individuality.'

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
