The Kingsman Look
Phillips’ Philosophy: “The Kingsman aesthetic is built with Saville Row tailoring in mind. That is in their DNA. Saville Row is where English tailoring was born, which is its own special type of silhouette. Our thought process was to create a modern take on that Saville Row shape, because Matthew thought that, classically, the jacket was overly long and overly broad in the shoulders. If you go to Saville Row now, you get one of two things: either a traditional, old-fashioned looking silhouette or an overly modern silhouette. We wanted to find a middle ground.
“For the shirts we went to designers on Jermyn Street, where the best shirts in England are made. That is where all of the gentlemen go. Then if there was ever a chance to add an accessory we took it, because that means hiding more gadgets!”Back to top
