Portraits: William Osborne Details: Sartorialee
England take on Slovakia tonight in their final group game at Euro 2016 – knowing victory will secure them a place in the last 16 in France. Sartorialee puts his spin on the new England suit that Marks and Spencer Autograph have created for the players (and fans), a blue cloth tailored-fit suit that will see you stylishly through Euro 2016 and way beyond. Boasting a tailored-fit jacket that both flatters and defines the shoulders, chest and waist and trousers that follow the same flattering cut through the line of the leg for a stylish crisp look.
Made using British worsted cloth from Leeds-based mill Alfred Brown, internal detailing includes a navy jacquard repeat print outline of a football pitch, with a single gold-embroidered star on the inside pocket closure – defining the only time in their history England have won a World Cup. They have yet to bring a European Championship back to English soil, but we live in hope.
The suit is available in a tailored fit in store at M&S (search for: T150537A & T150538A), with slim fit (search for: T150537F & T150538F) and big and tall fit (search for: T150537L & T150538L) available online.
The players are wearing a navy blue, red and white club tie with their official ensemble, but just to show the suits’ versatility beyond the tournament, I’ve chosen to pair it with a Drakes Shantung silk tie in beige, orange and navy with a paisley pocket square by Farah.
Jacket £115; trousers £84 with waistcoat option for an additional £64
