Apologies in advance, but we’re terrible for name-dropping. Can’t help ourselves. It’s embarrassing, really.
In our defence, though, there are a lot of extremely stylish men who’ve been spotted in Percival this year. Kings of cinema, sport and social media are all flexing our playful take on classic menswear staples, and we love the way they’re styling our pieces.
Take a look at some well-dressed friends of the brand below.
“Joe! How are you mate? Yeah, we’re all good. Did you get the Workshirt and trousers ok? What’s that, you’re wearing them right now? And they’re the best things you’ve put on all year? Good to hear, mate, good to hear.”
Okay, we’re not who Joe Jonas is talking to in this picture. That conversation is entirely fabricated. What’s not made up, however, is the swagger our favourite Jonas brother has when he’s dressed top and bottom in Percival. Here, Mr Sophie Turner is wearing our Workshirt in tan cord with our Everyday Trousers in espresso microcheck. A good example of how to lean casual with pieces that walk the line between dressed-up and downtime.
The gaffer. The guvnor. If it was up to us, England manager Gareth Southgate would also be Prime Minister, our uncle and the first person the aliens speak to when they land. Obviously, he’d be kitted out head-to-toe in Percival, just as he was for the Euros this summer.
We may have mentioned this a few times already but before England’s most successful tournament since ‘66, Gareth approached us and gave us the chance to design his dugout duds. We jumped at the chance. Percival designed his complete Euros wardrobe, including his Navy Suit, knitted shirts, Sherlock overcoat and, of course, his Lucky Tie.
It’s the smile that launched 100m YouTube views. Not to mention the first drop of our AW21 collection. Yung Filly – musician, presenter, social media don and all-round good egg – helped us unveil our latest pieces at London’s suitably swanky Brydges Place.
He’s wearing some of this season’s versatile favourites, like the ever-reliable Sherlock coat in checkered Italian wool, our warm Flannel Workshirt and navy corduroy Outershirt. Not to brag, but we thought they looked very much at home in one of the capital’s most exclusive addresses.
Michael B Jordan
Another A-lister, another excellent Percival knit. Creed and Black Panther star Michael B Jordan is spotted here in our Cuban Knit in cream. We like everything about this look, but the gold accessories perfectly set off the shirt.
Another star in a reasonably priced shirt. This time, it’s Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, wearing our Pablo Cotton Knit in an autumn-friendly espresso tone. Not unlike Peter Parker, this superheroic layer works on its own or as part of a team, so feel free to style it over a tee or under a jacket if your style sense is tingling. Okay, we’ll stop with the puns now.
Most recently seen in Sherlock Holmes spinoff The Irregulars on Netflix, actor Harrison Osterfield has a touch of Dickie Greenleaf about him. You remember Dickie: the dashing Jude Law character from The Talented Mr Ripley, who looked especially good in a knitted shirt.
No surprise, then, that Harrison wears the heck out of our Waffle Short-sleeve Shirt. He’s got it buttoned up, but we think the style works just as well open with a tee or vest underneath.
