Greetings! May I firstly introduce myself. My name is Elizabeth and I am the new Manageress at A Suit That Fits, Manchester. I'm now chomping at the bit to get into the studio and get moving - finally opening on Saturdays! So anyone looking for a suit or even just wanting to brainstorm some ideas please pop in for a chat soon! Now I won't lie to you, 'I loves a bit of Gavin Stacey I does!' And as all avid fans know it was actually Smithy and Nessa (writers James Corden and Ruth Jones) that made us fall in love with the show through clever writing and impeccable comic timing.
As lovable and witty as this lager-loving Essex boy is, I think we can all agree that the horizontal striped polo shirts and sports don't do Corden any favours.
However, since the end of the Gavin Stacey we've got to see the far more suave and stylish side of Corden which really hit me at this years Brit Awards - just look at the difference!. Donning a classic black three piece suit, James has gone for a five button waistcoat with notched base which elongates his upper body, worn underneath a relatively understated one button jacket with straight flapless pockets. By keeping it simple and using clean lines it's far more complementary - the wide peaked lapels make it extra-sharp and mirrors the sharp angles of the jacket's shoulders. I'm definitely a sucker for those little design features that really add to the overall creation - like the matching five buttons on the front with five buttons on the cuffs.
Top it off with a neat round collared shirt and monochrome tartan tie and voila! Even a snappy tie-pin to make him a proper British gent. Corden knows that keeping it simple is his best formula, even when going a bit more casual with black jeans shirt, a well-fitting charcoal jacket and (one button and notched lapel) works for me! Though, we would never want to suppress his fame and fortune winning cheeky-chappy personality. His new role as presenter of quiz show 'A League of Their Own' is a perfect demonstration of his love for a t-shirt jacket combo. This can be happily paired with smart or casual jeans. Note the extra-slim lapel giving it an extra modern edge. As modelled by James Corden, investing in a well-fitting jacket in any of the classic options; black, navy or grey will serve you well! Whatever your outfit, whether in trainers or heels it will never look out of place and be incredibly versatile.
For those not wanting to be too extravagant, or just looking to get a taste of tailoring this is a fantastic way to start. The 'Little Black Jacket' is an absolutely wardrobe essential for both men and women just come and see me in our Manchester Studio and find the perfect fit for you!
