Leicester City Football Club’s rise to the top has been a popular talking point up and down the country. Nobody could’ve predicted the team’s ability to overhaul the big guns for the number one spot, 31 games into the season! We’ve received so many questions about our suit sponsorship with the club, and in this blog post, McCann Bespoke’s tailor, Alex Katseph, reveals the ins and outs of their chosen suit design – giving you the opportunity to get the look.

The Suit

The outer fabric of the jacket is an Italian Super 100s material in British Blue. This finer wool material undoubtedly feels nicer and fits just a bit better than a lower grade of wool. We’ve embroidered the left breast pocket with the team’s emblem and completed the jacket look with smoked mother of pearl buttons. The team opted for wider notch lapels, Alex explains the benefits of this look; ‘This gives a contemporary look with a nod to traditional suit styling. We’ve opted for something a little wider than a regular width lapel because wide lapels are extremely popular right now – with fashion weeks across Europe further proving that.’

The lining within the jacket has been chosen to represent the team colours, this look has been created by using contrast stitching and piping, completed with a hand-stitched McCann Bespoke label. So, how do each of the players differentiate their suits when they’re in the changing room? Each suit has the name and squad number of each team member embroidered inside the jacket.

The Tie

The completely bespoke tie is made from the finest silk. It was designed in-house to have the club emblem woven into the bottom of the tie, a subtle and personable touch!
