Armitage in Burberry, details?

Based on Ilaria Urbinati’s tweets that Richard Armitage did his Into the Storm publicity in Burberry, both morning and evening, after a little research, Tree and I have concluded he was wearing:

Burberry Slim Fit Wool Silk Suit, retailing for $1995.00 USD. This was Tree‘s discovery. Wool. Wonder what John Standring would think.

and in the morning, Burberry Nappa Leather Bomber Jacket, retails for $1500.00 USD. Lambskin. Wonder what John Standring would think.

Burberry denim jeans would have run him ca. $300.00 USD. $250-$350.00 USD for a Burberry dress shirt. $150.00 USD for a Burberry polo.

We assume he got a deep discount.

  1. Thanks for the credit. For some reason I find this subject fascinating 🙂

  2. It’s nice that he supports British design/design houses (whatever you call them).. Even though I’m not British I think it’s nice.

  3. He has a Burberry coat (if I am recalling accurately) that I think he wore in some photo shoots as well as to the 24 Hour Play event in London–I really liked that, too. And yeah, it’s nice he’s wearing some British designers. 😀

    • That plaid suit from Dec 2012 was also British.

      And yeah, the heavy wool coat from Nov 2010 was Burberry. 1300 GBP retail at the time …

        • I was in the minority in that I liked the checked suit- I thought it did wonderful things for his thighs and bottom!

                • Gosh, didn’t they appear especially crystal-clear-blue on some of the pics from the NY-Premiere? Don’t tell me it was photoshop!!! LOL
                  Ah, you know! The Germans and their “Vereinswirtschaft” (Vereinsmeierei- a special word for you Serv!!). Count me in. I’m no member of any “Club”, but that one sounds promising, and negotiating the statutes will hopefully prove to be reasonable fun. As the associates are living all over the world, meetings would not be all too often……. 😉

  4. Rather expensive clothing that’s made in China or Thailand. Kinda puts a twist to that made in Britain label. Is it just me or does that suit look like it’s a size too small. ^_^

    • English suits are supposed to be slim fitting (that said, Armitage does not have the ideal body for the English suit silhouette, which is always nipped in at the waist and very narrow across the thighs). So the suit is right; that’s the style.

      Yes on frustrationg over where (and under what conditions) this stuff is manufactured, although in the last three years Armitage has had at least one piece on that I believe was either made to measure or bespoke.

      • When I read that he wore Burburry I checked their webpage right away, to figure out whether the suit is from their current collection. My immediate reaction was: Look at that spindly legs of this skinny/beanpole-thin young boy! Richard may have looked like that when he was in his teens, but now……. No way!!
        It’s suitable for this fashionable young lads/boys (not men!) that are definitely not all too (grown up 😉 ) into workout and manual work/sports….
        What’s a bit odd is that RA is (mainly) really, really slim that even sometimes he appears almost fragile. Still he has those strong (wonderful!!) thighs and therefore from time to time he looks too tightly squeezed into his clothing (to be comfortable…. my imagination!)
        OTOH it gives us gaping ladies a lot to contemplate about his obvious features. Woof…
        For me nothing special about this particular leather jacket, besides that it seems expensive and of dubious origin (as you mentioned!), however it’s soft look and feel must be rrrrrr…. most tempting. Pretty sure Richie must own quite a number of this kind of jackets by now….

  5. Poor John would be stunned.
    I may be biased 🙂 but Richard looks way better in this suit that that …boy on stilts 😉

  6. My, but they had to cut the thighs considerably fuller on Richard’s suit, didn’t they? 😉

    • This a ready to wear piece — so I assume they’d found a pair of trousers that fit correctly around the largest part and then altered the rest of the garment to fit. Explains why the lower part of the pant is so much baggier on Armitage than it is on the model (for instance).

      • Speaking of those legs demanding more fabric, I never thought I would find a man’s thighs so—so alluring, and then Sir Guy strutted into my life and all was lost. I really hate the look of body builders—I just don’t find that attractive at all, male or female. But Richard’s natural physique, oh my.

      • There is an adequate German expression: “Hungerhaken” (size zero/stick – lit. translated: hunger hooks) suitable for female or male models looking like this…

    • I thought the exact same thing about the model. It’s like, here’s the suit on a boy (model) . . . and here’s the suit on a MAN (RA).
