Icon of the Month, Sam Smith

English singer-songwriter Sam Smith has had an incredible year. Last week alone the 22 year old scooped up all four of the MOBOs he was nominated for and the Q award for best newcomer, and with the Grammys and the Brits fast approaching he’ll no doubt be placing more strain on his trophy shelf in the near future.

Prince Harrys Style. 6 of our Favourite Suits

Harry has always been our favourite royal. As the second-born son of Prince Charles and Diana, free-spirited Prince Harry is able to have a more laid-back approach to life, compared to his brother, William. Whilst his royal duties don’t necessarily lend themselves to having a uniquely stylish wardrobe, Harry is excellent at toeing the line between modern and traditional with classic tailoring. To celebrate his recent engagement to Suits’ star, Meghan Markle, we’re taking a look through the Prince’s tailored wardrobe…

Adam Thomas’ Wedding Suit: How We Designed the Suits for Their Country Manor Wedding

This Summer, we had the pleasure of tailoring a wedding suit for Emmerdale actor, Adam Thomas.

An Unexpected Style Icon: The Best of Prince Philip’s Suits

Today is the 96th birthday of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who is the oldest male member of the British royal family in history. It is well known that he is not a fan of birthdays – he sent this rather funny message to someone who shared his birthday last year – however, it seems only right to make him our icon of the month.

Roger Moore: The Best of His Bond Suits

The team at King & Allen were very sad to hear that Roger Moore, the actor who played James Bond for the longest, has died at the age of 89. Whilst many Bond enthusiasts don’t consider Moore’s style as Bond to be the most classic, there is no doubt that his suits were very interesting. He was never afraid of wearing something a little “trendy”, which resulted in some of the most fashion-forward, and therefore dated, suits in the Bond series (Safari suits and flared trousers, anyone?)

The James Bond Guide to Black Tie

Have you ever looked at James Bond in a dinner suit and wondered, “Why don’t I look like that in a DJ?” Well, if you’re like most men who get unexpectedly invited to a black tie event, you probably head to the formalwear hire shop to rent an ill-fitting, synthetic dinner suit or throw on a black suit and be done with it. So, that might be why!

Icon of the Month: Barack Obama and his Tailored “Uniform”

Barack Obama needs very little introduction here. In the 8 years that he has been president of the United States, he has been widely respected for his leadership globally, but we’re not here to talk about that. We want to talk about the wardrobe that has made him one of the best-dressed politicians in years.
