Taron Egerton as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin wears a bright Orange Velvet Tuxedo Smoking Jacket in the latest Kingsman 2 film – here’s how to get one just like it.

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.

So, which colour would you choose?

Should you find yourself wanting a tailor made unique velvet smoking jacket then we (travellingtailor.co.uk) have a wonderful selection of coloured and patterned velvets to choose from. From Tangerine to Hot Pink, Navy Blue to Turquoise, Silver to Calypso Red and of course black, all shades are covered.

You can choose the lapel design to suit your style, from Double Breasted peaked, Shawl or standard notched.
Just to finish the look, TravellingTailor.co.uk also has a large selection of Tartan’s should you wish to add a waistcoat and or trews to your Tuxedo.

How to get the Harry Styles ‘Two Ghosts’ yellow double breasted suit that everyone is talking about.

Saturday night saw the (ex) One Direction singer Harry Styles debut his latest single ‘Two Ghosts’ on TV. From his self-titled ‘Harry Styles’ album the track featured on the Jonathan Ross show on ITV.

The tabloids and fans of Harry have gone into a frenzy on twitter over the stunning bright yellow suit he wore on the show. The show was first aired on Saturday 02/09/2017 on ITV.
Not only was the suit different because of its bright yellow colour but it was also double breasted. This is something that you don’t see that often on TV these days. Unless it’s a repeat of a sitcom from the early 80’s !

About the suit.

Known in the trade as a ‘button 2 show 3’, the high fastening double breasted jacket featured dark buttons that stood out on the bright yellow fabric of the suit. Button 2 show 3 means that there are 3 sets of buttons on the front of the jacket with two being used to fasten the jacket.
Real functioning cuff holes completed the exclusive look of the suit that was obviously made to measure specifically for Harry.
So, how can you get a ‘Two Ghosts’ Yellow suit similar to the one worn by Harry Styles?
TravellingTailor.co.uk carry a large selection on cloth samples from various mills throughout Yorkshire and England. From stripes to checks and through to plains. One of these bunches carried is a Super 120’s selection of plain wools in various shades. There are 3 yellow shades to choose from, with Bright Yellow being one of them.

August, think of fun in the sun and your Winter wardrobe from TravellingTailor, think of Flannel

TravellingTailor.co.uk – flannel fabric for a new winter suit.

As the rest of the UK sets off on their Summer holidays, the Cricket season gets into full swing and the Premier League football season is yet to start, it’s time to start thinking ahead about your Winter wardrobe.

With a travellingtailor made to measure suit taking around 6-8 weeks to be ready for you to wear, now is the time to look at fabrics for your new Autumn/Winter suit. Any suit commissioned in the next few weeks should be ready for the end of September or the beginning of October. Just in time for the dark colder months.

Tweed suits are always popular in the darker colder months due to its weight and has been a mainstay of ‘fashion’ for the last few years. Here at TravellingTailor.co.uk we have a wonderful selection of Tweed patterns to choose from.
Whilst Tweed is great for those less formal events, it might not be right for the business or corporate look. This more formal requirement is where Flannel comes into the picture and it’s all set to become the ‘hot’ fashion look.
Just this week one of our major suit fabric suppliers introduced is to a whole new pattern bunch dedicated to Flannel’s.
Plains, stripped and checked Flannel in a variety of colours and shades. From Prince of Wales to Window Pane checks, business stripes and slightly more casual pastel plains, this bunch has them all.
Why not contact us to discuss your new winter wardrobe and a Flannel Suit?
