Pulling out the stops for sartorial moment of the year, Justin Timberlake turned up at the 2013 GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden wearing an exquisite, heavily-embroidered three-piece tuxedo by Tom Ford.
Hair swept back and blue eyes sparkling, Justin was papped at the high-profile event wearing what might be one of his finest suits, a nice change from the standard black tuxedos he's been wearing lately in support of his new music.
Everything about his suit spoke elegance from the jacket's fan-like stitching to the satin shawl collar to the slashed, satin-lined pockets to the white buttons of the waistcoat (cleverly contrasted with the shirt's black buttons). The rumpled silk bow-tie added the finishing touch. Although Timberlake didn't win an award, it was fitting that he attended the event wearing a Tom Ford suit since he presented Ford with the award for Best Designer on the night. Justin even managed to outshine David Gandy, who wore a less interesting suit yet still managed to look formidable with his piercing eyes and heavy build.
The most interesting thing about Ford's own tuxedo was its unusually wide satin lapels and satin cuffs. The fashion gods must really have been smiling on the opera house last night because Pharrell Williams also showed up to collect his Performer of the Year award wearing a black, stylishly crumpled tuxedo by Lanvin. How many excellent tuxedos can one opera house contain?. .
With the explosion of One Direction in the last few months in America all eyes are on this band. Most pop groups have a main person, someone that all the magazines focus, someone that everybody swoons over.
For One Direction that person is Harry Stiles. The fresh faced singer stole the hearts of adoring fans in the UK and U.S.A but here at A Suit That Fits we've got our eye on one thing, it seems that while everyone is falling for Harry, his stylists are in love with tailoring.
Here we see him wearing an over-sized bow tie. This type of neck tie has a youthful, playful feel but paired with a three piece mid grey suit it looks like Harry Stiles is going for a more serious suiting look.
This fitted black shirt shows of his slim waist and worn with a cropped grey Jacket that is cut very slim to show off his modern take on traditional tailoring.
It is great to see such a young gent flying the flag for suits. Harry Stiles loves the very slim tailored suiting. He normal sports a two piece but has been know to wear a waistcoat on occasion.
Earlier this month we saw our friends across the pond show off their sartorial glory at the Golden Globes.
We mainly saw an array of fantastic tailored (tuxedo in America). Below are a few of my favourite suits.
Chris Plummer, who won best performance of an Actor in Beginners, opted for a very traditional midnight blue dinner jacket with peaked lapels.
Peter Dinklage, who won best supporting role in Game of Thrones, had a fantastic bespoke all black dinner jacket with notched lapels. But opted for a more modern look with a black tie , rather than a bow-tie .
Adam Levine and James Valentine, of Maroon 5, looked equally dapper. Levine sported an all black dinner jacket with white shirt and black bow tie. Valentine went for a black dinner suit with peaked lapels and a blue shirt with bow tie .
Our very own home grown comedian, Ricky Gervais presented the whole ceremony and wore a loud maroon number with peaked lapels. He went for an open shirt look for the evening.

Walk the streets of Bow and surrounding East London and fashionistas are opting for bright block colour or contrasting prints, bold high-top trainers and a statement bow tie.
The is now more Tinie Tempah than Timmy Mallet. British countryside chic is also big news, even crossing into city style. Racing green quilted jackets, tweeds, checks, flat caps, wools to corduroys and with the all important .
Thought the bow tie's place was only in formal wear then take a look at some of these stylish celebs.
