While Kingsman: The Secret Service may look like a British version of Wanted (which are both based on comics by Mark Millar), the Saville Row-inspired collection made in collaboration with Mr. Porter proves that “manners (and clothes) maketh man“. Full of double breasted suits, black watch fabric and a myriad of gentlemanly accouterments all crafted by British heritage manufacturers, the collection draws directly from the costumes worn by the various actors in the film. With quite a few more offers than the Brooks Brothers Great Gatsby Collection, everything from keychains, eyeglasses, watches, cufflinks and pocket squares are available with subtle Kingsman branding. While I doubt the umbrella does all the fancy tricks it does in the trailer, I do know that I need…NEED that velvet blazer and black watch pants combo!

While Mr. Porter is well known for their exceptional taste in clothing, their pricing has never been, shall we say, modest. These higher-end price points won’t sway regular shoppers of the site, however fans of the film and newcomers to Mr. Porter will likely experience some sticker shock. All that being said, this collection certainly has me excited to see the film, if only to see these incredible ensembles put together on the big screen. This movie is basically the Dandy’s “Sex In The City” and I’m fine with that. Check out highlights from the collection below as well as the latest trailer for Kingsman below which is in theaters February 13th.
