“When I think about formalwear, I can’t help but think about Humphrey Bogart rocking that ivory shawl-collar dinner jacket in Casablanca. He’s the epitome of effortless cool, and it’s such a timeless look that it went on to inspire countless other ‘fits in film and real life including Sean Connery’s James Bond two decades later.

I’ve opted for the classic shawl collar with the wider bib shawl style for a little more flair. I’m also partial to a more expressive bowtie (which matches the energy of the lapel). Finally, I know cummerbunds aren’t getting any love these days, but it’s truly the secret sauce that ties the outfit together in an elegant way.”

Adam Percival, Director of Made-to-Measure

  • Lapo Elkann

“While browsing through Instagram for inspiration, I stumbled upon a photo of a man posing in front of a green camouflaged Ferrari, adorned in a matching green tuxedo. It didn’t take long to realize this man was Lapo Elkann, the grandson of Fiat chairman Gianni Agnelli, one of the all-time style icons.

What draws me to Lapo is his unmistakable swagger. Regardless of current fashion trends, he wears suits in his own bold, expressive, and consistent manner. As pink is my favorite color, choosing this look was an effortless decision. Lapo Elkann effortlessly owns bright, colorful suits, a style that is uniquely his—and now, mine as well.”

Jin Hwang, Visual Presentation Leader 

  • Man wearing a patterned sport jacket
  • Lino Ielluzi

The 'Italian sartorial' vibe, epitomized by Lino Ielluzi, Milan's haberdashery owner, has deeply influenced my style. I first spotted his standout look on The Sartorialist, where he exhibited his usual sprezzatura, devil-may-care style that usually involves a double-breasted jacket.

Taking his cue, I've gone all out with a houndstooth double-breasted jacket, a navy double-breasted waistcoat, matching summer-weight trousers and, finished it off with double-monk-strap shoes. The trick is balancing the boldness with solid colours to create a polished look that’s not overwhelming.”

  • David Beckham

“I've always admired David Beckham's laid-back style and the way he seamlessly mixes casual with a hint of edge. I’m always keeping an eye on street style in general as well, which brings me a ton of inspiration. I’m especially into the layering in these street-inspired looks.

To capture this aesthetic, I’ve opted for a hooded custom trench with a snap front closure. What sets the coat apart is the intentional oversized fit, allowing room for layering as I’ve done here. I’ve paired it with custom-stretch cotton pants (with no crease) to capture these chill, yet refined vibes.”
