This Thursday 20th May sees the official launch of the England Football team suit launching exclusively in M&S stores.
Official tailor since 2007, Marks & Spencer has created the official FA suit to specifications set by England Manger Fabio Capello. Created though collaboration between Savile Row tailor Timothy Everest MBE and M&S, the team sourced the finest British fabrics and finishes as well as tailor-making each suit to perfectly fit every player. The result is a classic suit which will complement a variety of shapes and sizes and is a wardrobe essential worthy of every football fanatic.
The two-button single breasted jacket is sculpted to a modern British block with sleeve head roll shoulders for a classic fitting, slim silhouette. Additional styling details include narrower lapels, slanted pockets, four button cuffs and a decadent red puppy tooth check lining. Trousers are flat fronted and half lined providing added comfort, superior fit and an elegant modern shape. The four-button waistcoat gives added style kudos and maintains the refined look.
This timeless and versatile suit is smart enough for the boardroom as well looking contemporary when worn after hours socially or for that special occasion. The suit is cut from 100% wool fabric in a black and white micro birdseye weave. This high quality British fabric is sourced from the famous Alfred Brown Mill and proudly woven in Leeds, England.
Richard Price, Menswear Director says, “The FA and M&S are both great British institutions so we are extremely proud to continue to dress the England team as they travel to South Africa this summer. The M&S official FA replica suit is an extension of this great partnership allowing everyone to feel like that can be a part of this exciting experience.”
Timothy Everest MBE says, “Working on the design of the Official FA suit is a real honour and I’m delighted with the suit which fits the brief perfectly. We wanted the look not to detract from the team’s goal, but to give them something that was representative of modern British style whilst feeling elegant and comfortable”
The M&S official FA replica suit is available in two fittings; regular for a classic shape and slim fit for a sharper more streamlined fit and is available from 90* M&S stores nationwide and online. The jacket is priced £120, trousers £79 and waistcoat £35.
