Suit and Tie: The Evolution of Mens Tailoring

Everyone knows a well tailored suit can do wonderful things for a man, theres just something about a well groomed man in a suit. So its no wonder the market for mens tailoring is steadily growing and growing and being approached by high street brands meaning whatever your budget you can always look sharp.
Most surprisingly perhaps, relatively cheap high street retailer New Look, who have just real eased their 'Downton' Collection as you can imagine, its a collection heavily inspired by British heritage so theres plenty of tartan, Herringbone, elbow patches and flat caps. Heavily cliched but the sharp tailoring does look impressive for the low price tags (£50 for a suit jacket, £18 for trousers) and will no doubt be a resounding success with the New Look customer.
Elsewhere in Europe, and a little more upmarket, we have Tiger of Sweden who have been making news recently after opening a store in Piccadilly recently and then casting Rafferty Law, 16 year old son of Sadie Frost and Jude Law, as the lead in a recent promotional film. In the short clip Rafferty Law plays the 'rebel' whilst modelling the Swedish companies sharp tailoring.
By the looks of things this is just a hint of whats to come for mens tailoring and I think its definitely one too watch to see what happens next. Below is the video for Tiger Of Sweden, let me know what you think!
