One of sports most controversial athletes at this present time and the UFC’s Irish poster boy Conor McGregor is not only an influential figure in the sporting world, he is now taking the fashion world by storm, through his love for high-end fashion and in-your-face outfits, specifically through his bespoke one of one suits. Suits have become part of the Conor McGregor’s image, with a focus on press days often switching to what he is wearing, rather than the up and coming fight. McGregor has been known to spend thousands on bespoke individual suits, with David Heil, CEO of David August, serving as his personal suit-maker in order to create some beautiful pieces.
And for those interested in acquiring the three-piece wool suit, David August will be releasing this limited edition garment, but it comes with a hefty price tag of $6,500. As stated on the company website, the bespoke suit is made-to-measure, with an estimated completion time of 12-15 weeks. According to CEO David August Heil, he was bombarded by calls and messages from clients requesting for the said look, and it was a demand he was just unable to ignore. “We’re only producing a limited quantity, which will be numbered and signed by myself so it will be an exclusive group who own this style,” Heil said in a statement in an interview with GQ.
In the build up to McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather, some of Connor’s most suave and edgy outfits have been seen. With the standout piece so far being covered in the text ‘f*** you’ rather than your tradition pin stripe, the mixture of style yet disrespects within this one specific outfit caused social media to go into meltdown. Conor has openly said about the ‘McGregor Suit Collection’, which everyone originally took as a joke however soon came to the realisation that he was being deadly serious, is this something, which we would like to see?
I’ll leave you to decide.

Tis the season of blessings and joy, and there’s no excuse to just throw on a Christmas jumper that you dug out from the back of your closet that you got from your mum or significant other from last year or could even be the year before. Whether you’ll be roasting chestnut on the open fire or down the pub with your mates, we here at Clothes Make The Man are going to make sure you are prepared for the season’s events ahead and have your Christmas wardrobe covered.
Christmas Office Party
Dressing the part and knowing what to wear can sometimes be a tricky issue, should it be super formal or super casual, or somewhere in-between? A no brainer and the key piece of fashion advice when dressing, you should wear what the occasion dictates. If there is a dress code or theme to the party, then stick to that.. A perfectly tailored suit that’s easily adaptable or semi-formal blazers and trousers will complement cocktail looks. Keep things classic with dusky navies, subdued cobalt and muted greys. Stick to tailored suits that are fitted, but not too tight. Keep blazers figure hugging, fresh and modern and alter pants to just skim the top of the footwear.
Fitted dress shirts are proper, classic and safe in whites or powder blues. With that in mind, a modern or brighter patterned button down shirts can give a new edge to your outfit, provided they are not too over the top. Build on the colour of your suit with complementary shades that will look presentable and well put together.
Great shoes should not be overlooked or underestimated. A traditional round toe leather Oxford is timeless and the shoe of choice for that smart attire look. Upgrade your style in authentic leathers and switch things up with different textures like brogue punch holes. Loafers can be considered if the event is less formal but keep them relatively classic with colours in and black, navy or brown.
Whichever style Christmas Eve you tend to have, it’s also a good time to chuck on some fresh threads and look your best. This night is one of the best times to get together with friends and have a good drink down your local or have a more traditional family gathering and a takeaway or head out for a meal, casual attire would suit best, but it’s important to add a bit of a bit of swagger too. Pieces we recommend are overcoats and roll neck sweaters that will keep you warm, these can paired with smart trousers and smart looking trainers.
Start the day of right with with these pair of White Company Pyjamas, will make sure you get a good nights sleep for the big day, and feel the warm cheerful christmas spirit with your family.
