Hello my lovely people!! Becoming a champion is about practice and persistence – and a lot of talent. And to celebrate those skills, Allen Solly is celebrating what it means to be a winner and the spirit of Tennis. Taking it back to the golden years of 1970s tennis, Allen Solly collection is all about breathing new life into the classics. We decided to reissue back two of the most iconic tennis looks, the ever green suit look and the semi formal waist coat look.

 In terms of the suit look;

The margin for error when it comes to wearing a well-fitting suit is long and wide, especially if the one you’ve been pulling out for events or matches in between is either too long or too wide. Few of us are blessed with the model build to be able to wear an off-the-peg version without needing a few nip and tucks from a tailor (the suit, not us).However, much like visiting the barbers for a trim, it pays to be armed with knowledge – in this case knowing what good fit looks like. Here’s an instance to help you direct yourself or your tailor next in case you think of giving your tailor the best canvas to work with.

In terms of the second look;

It’s no secret that when it comes to the world of menswear, I’ve got a bit of an obsession with tailored pieces. I dream about suits all day and can’t help applauding the perfect break on a pair of trousers or a sports coat that fits in all the right places. The great thing about tailoring is that it can emphasise or conceal areas of your body as required and when worn correctly is able to adapt to a wide variety of social situations. The waistcoat is capable of doing just that. It transcends occasions and dress codes with ease, yet still offers enough room to experiment with layering. During the summer, I wear one as an alternative to a jacket as it keeps me looking respectable while providing some much-needed breathing room and circulation around the neck and arms. In the winter, on the other hand, I often use an odd waistcoat with my suits – a navy worsted wool suit with a brown tweed waistcoat, for example – to add depth and texture to formal looks. So stay tuned as I bring to you; some exciting looks for the upcoming three more rounds of this series.
