Angelina Jolie worked her magic with the women’s tuxedo again this week when she attended the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. Promptly thereafter, she was made a Dame by the British government in recognition of her humanitarian efforts. Surely one of the most fashionable Dames going, no? Jolie invited husband Brad Pitt along on this occasion and Pitt looked cool in a black and gray checked suit (although his “puddling” legs in the images below suggest the fit wasn’t exactly perfect). Whereas Jolie wore a Saint Laurent tuxedo and heels, Pitt’s suit was by Salvatore Ferragamo.
It’s not very often we see Pitt in a finely-checked suit. He’s usually seen sporting solid colors. If you like what you see, I’ve found the perfect fabric in the A Suit That Fits fabric range: a grey, pure wool featuring a Prince of Wales design. Style it with two jacket buttons, a notched collar and four cuff buttons for some Pitt-style simplicity. Keep things cool with some horn-rimmed sunglasses. When we fit you for your custom tailored suit, we’ll make sure your pants aren’t puddling as much as Pitt’s are here: your suit should fit you perfectly.
