Due for release tomorrow (20th September 2017) in the UK, Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle once again stars Taron Egerton as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin and Colin Firth as Harry Hart.
As with the first film in the series, Kingsman: The Secret Service, there is a great attention to style and design in the clothes the characters wear.
The Velvet Smoking jacket Tuxedo is once again in evidence. This time however, it’s Garry ‘Eggsy’ Unwin wearing one in a rather startling Tangerine Orange.
Fans of the film franchise may well recall Harry Hart (Colin Firth) wearing a Navy Blue Velvet Smoking Jacket. He completed the look with co-ordinating Tartan trews in the first film.
Colour is not the only difference.
Colour is not the only difference in the two Velvet Smoking Jackets used in the films. There are also differences in lapel styles.
Eggsy’s bright Orange Smoking jacket has Double Breasted peaked lapels. These lapels combined with the startling colour of the Pumpkin Velvet and the sharp fitted look of the jacket are perfect for the younger more fashion conscious style of Unwin. The jacket conveys perfectly the gregarious, cheeky and confident personality of Unwin.
Harry’s Navy Blue tuxedo on the other hand has a shawl-collar and the Velvet was a more muted shade of Navy Blue. The fit was also slightly more relaxed, perfect for the refined look Harry’s character requires. The pairing of the jacket with tartan trews suggests that whilst Harry is refined, there is nothing ‘ordinary’ about him.
