We’ve been waiting for the biggest music award show in the UK, and it has come and gone! BRITs 2013 has brought the music world together just for one night at the 02 London. As anticipated, all the celebrities turned up looking very elegant and sophisticated- with few exceptions; I can’t explain what happened. Perhaps their stylist isn’t on the same wavelength- you can make up your own conclusions. However, the gents on the red carpet at this year’s BRITs Awards are certainly not opting for subdued looks. There’s no doubt they’d have tried on numerous suits and considered countless accessories to finish off their desired looks.
First up, we’ve the man of the moment, Justin Timberlake. He arrived ahead of his performance sporting a classic grey two piece suit with peak lapels. He wore this with a brilliant white shirt with collar bar. The ‘Suit and Tie ’ singer finished off his style with a classic black tie which acts as a focal point and a printed pocket square. Although he looked a bit spooked out on the red carpet, this gifted and talented individual delivered a great performance on stage.Justin Timberlake hits the stage for his performance donning a dinner jacket in a reversal of the traditional black jacket with satin lapels. He opted for matt shawl lapels with gleaming jacket . To complete his look, he wore a white dress shirt with studs and oversized bow tie.
Pictured here, we’ve the JLS lads all looking very dapper in their three piece suits – look at their shoes too! It’s obvious these lads have paid attention to the details, just like their music. Despite being snubbed in the nominations, JLS made an outstanding appearance; displaying attributes of bespoke tailoring . In the mix, we have peak lapels , shawl lapels , notched lapels , slanted pockets and contrasting lapels and pockets. Their choice of fabrics reflects the versatility of their music- from tweed to checks and solid colour. For representing the best of British tailoring, kudos to their stylists!
And finally we have Ed Sheeran who wore a smart?! navy blue suit for the award show. I’ll let you draw your own conclusion on this one.
