George Bryan ‘Beau’ Brummell

set the standard for mid-19th century men’s  fashion.

He was a fashion visionary and risk taker.

Having introduced the suit and tie, which

became a staple in menswear,

he has secured his spot in the annals

of fashion history.

Creative director of Alexander McQueen –

Sarah Burton

offered a distinctive, modern take on men’s suiting,

for autumn/winter 2013.

Reminiscent of a  Beau Brummell approach

to men’s fashion,  the collection is:


avant garde

out of the box

classic  material with unconventional patterning

and in instances unique silhouette /styling.

The effect is immediate.

A man wearing a statement suit attracts attention.

So gentlemen, what are you waiting for?  …
