It's been quite some time since I've seen such a stunning display and array of gentleman's dinner suits! Those attending this year's GQ Awards Ceremony in London provided quite the sartorial feast into which I most happily delved.
Though with so many to choose from I've selected a few of my personal favourite show-stoppers:. Gary Barlow, having truly established himself as a fashion inspiration to so many men has once again impressed with a simple and chic one button single breasted dinner with a and .
The use of a matching collar to the jacket but contrasting to the peaked lapels really gives some striking lines and shape to the overall outfit. I like how the skinny tie and satin buttons on the waistcoat, again bring out the darker black satin. With such a toned, slim physique a four button waistcoat looks really sharp and shows off a muscular chest, very tastefully!. Now on the completely opposite end of the scale we have Jimmy Carr David Walliams looking simply superb in their complimentary velvet dinner jackets. Again they've both gone for a single breasted, one button jacket with peaked satin lapels.
The smoking jacket style gives an elegant opulence that is finished perfectly with the addition of a black satin bow-tie. fabulous!. If you like the idea of a velvet dinner jacket but don't quite have the confidence to go for a bold Maroon or Green- why not stick to black like David Gandy? He's opted for a textured velvet jacket with satin shawl collar. The use of velvet really creates the look of a lounge suit. I can just picture the over-sized brandy glass being swirled in his hand! Needless to say a flawless outfit choice by Gandy.
The last time I saw Tinie Tempah he was arriving at the Olympic Closing Ceremony in a beautiful Phantom Series II Drophead Coupe! His recent entrance was no less exceptional with a shawl collar dinner suit, though unlike the previous suits he's gone for, this being a dinner suit he had flapless pockets. Tinie has gone for a cloth with a diagonally stripe in the weave, reminicent of a grosgrain and an overside bow-tie.
The key to the dinner suit is without doubt the satin lapel and flapless pockets. By keeping these two details constant you can really be creative with the choice of cloth, maintaining an incredibly dapper look!
Having been voted the Sexiest Man Alive in 2011 it makes sense that Bradley Cooper should look good in a suit. He stood out in his almost retro style dinner suit! The choice of a six button double breasted jacket is relatively unusual in today's fashions and the extra-wide lapels really remind me of the classic 40's/50's suits. Regardless, Cooper pulled this look off and definitely showed us that double breast is definitely not dead and buried. As bizarre as it may be to think of winter already, this is the time to start thinking about evening wear for the festive season. Up in Manchester I've already seen an influx of orders for dinner suits and overcoats. So if you've got any special events coming up and fancy taking a look at some cloths just book in at any of our studios or have a play online.
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!

We can tailor a garment down to a quarter of an inch of its life, allowing us to design the style you have always dreamed about at a price which won't break the bank. Below are a couple of pictures nicely supplied by Bal and Dal. What a lovely couple they make. They came to see us just before Christmas at an asian wedding show in Birmingham. After speaking to the both of them I realized we could definitely help and I booked them an appointment to come into our studio. Bal's suit took 6-8 weeks to make. We designed a one button single breasted three piece suit in a medium grey pure wool with hand stitched notched collar.
We added little touches to match with Bal and Dal's the wedding colours. The suit jacket had contrast piping in a ES silk electric blue as well as making a feature of the cuff stitching by stitching the last buttonhole in electric blue. We even made him a matching tie in the suit cloth. What a great look, very smart with a bespoke shirt which also had different styling attributes as seen below. We used a large paisley lining to go with the contrast piping with an individual label with their initials and wedding date. This made Bal's suit extra special for his big day. The bespoke shirt is cut half inch longer than the jacket sleeves to create the perfect look. As you move your arms your shirt cuffs will show for that perfect style. We added top stitching all around the shirt to match with the wedding colours and all the button stitching was made in grey with white buttons. The under collar and cuffs are also made in grey for a nice contrast against the white shirt. This gives little hints of detail without overpowering the whole outfit, it looks just great!

Ryan Giggs looks sharp is this sharkskin slim fit two piece. Again emulating power with his peaked lapels, one button jacket and slanted flapped pockets.
The phenomenal success of English boy band One Direction, after coming third in the 7th series of the X Factor, has culminated in a number one spot in America for their debut album Up All Night.The band, comprising members Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis, are now embarking on what looks like a sell out US tour to promote their album.
They have generated so much excitement, that some commentators have likened it to the Beatles first visit to the States in 1964, and the necessity for 20 bodygurds for each member on the tour!With 2.
35 million Twitter followers already, the boys are proving to be a music sensation, and they're also showing a great sartorially individual style in their choice of suits too.Maybe better known for their trendy casual gear, the boys have also been cutting a dash in a series of sharp suits. I have already noticed an increase in popularity in my Oxford, Reading and Camberley studios of their preference for an ultra-fitted cut. In the above picture of the band at an X Factor gig, from left to right, Liam is wearing a charcoal two button suit in a mohair cloth, with narrow notch lapels, straight flapped pockets and narrow flat front trousers .
Harry sports a black one button suit in a wool/silk mix, again with a narrow notch lapel and flat front trousers. Zayn has a black one button suit in a mohair cloth, with a narrow shawl collar, slanted flapless pockets and narrow flat front trousers . Louis has gone for a very on-trend maroon one button suit in a sharkskin cloth, again with a shawl collar and slanted flapless pockets, with narrow flat front trousers. Finally, Niall has chosen a dark charcoal one button suit in a mohair cloth, with shawl collar and contrast black trim, slanted flapless pockets and narrow flat front trouser. They have all chosen white shirts and skinny black ties to complete their outfits. In this picture, Harry has gone for a three piece single breasted suit in a mid grey mohair cloth, with a one button notch lapel jacket, four button waistcoat and flat front trousers, complementing it with a white shirt and oversize black bow tie! Zayn on the other hand has opted for a light grey double breasted suit in a mohair cloth, with peak lapels, straight flapped pockets and contrasting black buttons. All the boys have accessorized their suits with pocket squares. The 'Fab Five' certainly know how to look dapper and trendy on stage!

The 1 button jacket is something that we don't see too often, aside from the Dinner Jacket, yet it can provide a very smart look with minimalist, clean lines.
Dick Van Dyke, seen below, shows exactly how a 1 button should look. With the single button, the eye is naturally drawn to the 'X' shape that is created in the chest creating a look of pure simplicity.
If you prefer a separate jacket however, the 1 button style will also work equally well. A half lined linen jacket in navy or light brown would be extremely versatile, especially with the recent warmer weather.
