One of the most popular questions we’re asked is ‘How can I look like David Beckham in a morning suit?’ Let’s face it he stole the show at the Sussex’s Royal wedding, making the traditional morning suit a contender once again for modern weddings. Read on to find out how to look like David Beckham in a morning suit!
David Beckham’s morning suit was made by Dior Homme designed by Kim Jones. According to their press release, he wore “a Dior Homme charcoal grey super 130’s wool morning coat and pants, a light grey super 150’s wool double-breasted waistcoat.”
A deeply traditional look, updated to a more contemporary style. The key to David Beckham’s morning suit was his waistcoat – a subtle dove grey, contrasting nicely with the monochrome of his suit and shirt and of course the flattering fit of the suit.
David Beckham’s bespoke morning suit was a lightweight charcoal grey wool. If you’re looking for a suit hire service; our suggestion would be to go for our navy Balmoral morning suit . The navy is as dramatic as David’s dark grey but a little softer on the skin tone. Made from 100% wool Italian Barathea, at nearly half the weight of a high street hire shop morning coat, it’s perfect for staying cool on a hot, Summer’s day.
Our navy Balmoral morning suit is teamed here with our exclusive dove grey double breasted waistcoat from our hire suit service. Our waistcoat features the same narrower lapel as David Beckham’s, a more modern cut that sits much neater under a morning coat.
You could of course add your own little touches to this look by changing the tie or waistcoat colour to make it individual to you.
Finally, it’s essential to consider the fit. David Beckham’s morning suit was a closer fit and a more flattering shape than is traditionally worn.
The jacket and trousers of our Balmoral morning coat come in super slim, slim and regular cut to give a much superior fit than traditional hire stores. When you wear a Whitfield & Ward suit, you won’t feel like you’re in a hired suit!
