5 looks inspired by Icons of Style - Steve Mcqueen

WIN_2127-Edit_3000px90q.jpg


In the second installment of this series, we share our two cents on the well documented style of another Hollywood icon, Mr. Steve Mcqueen. Described as the King of Cool by all the leading men’s fashion titles, he certainly radiated a rare kind of masculinity. Combined with his good looks and well considered clothing choices, he truly incarnated timeless men’s style.


A single breasted topcoat style rain coat is often times called a Mackintosh or just simply a Mac. Charles Mackintosh, a Scottish chemist invented a waterproof sealing technique by merging two fabrics and coating them in liquid rubber. This is how the first true raincoats came about.

Steve Mcqueen popularised the style in the movie Bullitt, playing one of the most stylish detective in movie history. Given its simple cut and the protective fabric its made of, it has a place in virtually any men’s wardrobe.

5 looks inspired by Icons of Style - Steve Mcqueen

WIN_2123-Edit_3000px90q.jpg

We looked through all the iconic images of Mcqueen's screen and personal life, then selected some favorite looks to interpret them in true SARTORIALE style. Each outfit revolves around an iconic piece of menswear, from tailoring to sportswear and shows how these pieces are still relevant today.

The Three Piece Suit​

Famously worn in The Thomas Crown Affair, three piece suits became the hallmark tailored style worn by Mcqueen. A grey three piece is subtle, restrained and sophisticated. If you don’t have one in your wardrobe yet, a vest can seem to be superfluous, in reality it’s a great piece to wear in the office. Worn on its own, it still signals professionalism and style. While the suit coat doesn’t serve a purpose behind the office desk, wearing only a shirt and tie will always feel undergrad. This is where the vest comes in the picture. Not just a great look, when worn on its own, it also signals professionalism and style.


In todays dress down world wearing a three piece is probably the best option for special occasions. Easy to style and when its well tailored incredibly flattering. The classic combination of a crisp white shirt, dark tie and properly polished black shoes always works for formal outings. If you are brave and handsome you can pull it off sans tie, but only when the invitation says party.

When building your tailored wardrobe, a tweed sportcoat in brown or grey should be on top of your list. While a navy blazer reigns as the most popular option for a separate jacket, tweed should be your second choice. Water repellent, hard wearing and warm, it can be worn instead of a light coat in fall.

The looks worn by Mcqueen are great testament to the many ways one can fit tweed sportcoats into their style. We love the chambray shirt/knitted tie ensemble in The Cincinatti Kid and the brown version with a navy turtleneck in Bullitt. For a more contemporary take on this classic style try to layer a white shirt and a round neck sweater under the jacket with khaki chinos and desert boots.

The Leather Moto Jacket

On the more rugged end of classic menswear, a leather jacket is hard to beat. In one of his most famous roles in The Great Escape, McQueen wore a classic A-1 flight jacket, first commissioned by the US army. Later the style was replicated by many menswear brands, like Schott or Valstar.

For the look we created, we were inspired by a series of pictures of McQueen, which were made during a motorcycle race in the Mojave desert. His jacket is already nicely broken in, showing off the characteristics of a good leather piece. Thedi Leathers collaboration with Legendary Motocycles is based on a similar model, highlighted in our look. With some wear and care it will only get better with age.

Waxed Outerwear

Another British invention (like Mac coats) to fight incremental weather is waxed canvas outerwear. Originally only worn for outdoor pursuits like hunting, waxed jackets today are acceptable in the city too. McQeen wore his off screen, as an alternative option for motorcycling. If you loose the goggles, the field jacket style (Barbour International) is also a great city option. Wear it with dark selvedge denim and boots like the vintage piece we styled for this article.

Revenge of the Stripes - Part 1.

WIN_2449_3000px90q.jpg

After years dominated by all kinds of checkered fabrics, stripes made a big comeback in the last two seasons. From classic pinstripes to the wildest rowing stripes, there is a style for everyone.

We like to wear them best as suits, therefore we selected some favorites from our current assortment. First up is a wool/cashmere flannel chalkstripe from Cesare Attolini, an excellent day suit for the winter season. We paired it with a knitted wool tie from Turnbull and Asser and dark brown oxford shoes from John Lobb.

Revenge of The Stripes - Part 2.

WIN_2498_3000px90q-2.jpg

On the conservative side, a thin and dense pinstripe is hard to beat. It gives an extra layer of visual depth from close up, and it's easy to match with other patterns. We chose a double-breasted Brioni suit for an example. The olive green tie and dark brown Silvano Lattanzi oxford shoes soften the formal appeal to great effect. Otherwise, you can always stick to the foolproof combination of a white shirt, dark tie, and black shoes.

The Revenge of the Stripes - Part 3.

WIN_2461_3000px90q.jpg

Following up on our recent theme, this is what we would call a ‘Presidential Look’. The deep navy, single-breasted suit with peak lapels from Cesare Attolini features a strong, ‘Triple Stripe’ pattern. The outfit comes together with a dark red Turnbull and Asser foulard tie and Silvano Lattanzi wholecut oxford shoes. A serious statement, done in a tasteful manner.

The Revenge of the Stripes - Part 4.

WIN_2465_3000px90q.jpg

A classic yet striking look, double breasted chalk stripe suits were donned by such strong personalities as Churchill or Onassis. The d’Avenza take on this tailoring icon offers the right balance of power and understatement. The subtle foulard patterned silk tie from Kiton adds to the conservative appeal while the Silvano Lattanzi oxford shoes will surely empower its wearer.

The Revenge of the Stripes - Part 5.

WIN_2477_3000px90q-2.jpg

Earth tones and predominantly brown tailoring was in the center of attention in menswear lately. Given the warm, natural appeal of these colors, they work better in the current, casual era. This worsted wool single-breasted suit from Sartoria Castangia features a pale blue pinstripe. A great option for sartorial aficionados, easy to dress up with a tie or wear it ‘en vogue’ with a turtleneck layered under it.

Check out our latest arrivals from the storied Italian brand, Colmar. Masters of technical winter gear, they outfitted many winter sports icons like Alberto Tomba.

We received a great range of down-filled parka coats from the company, all of them feature removable fur trim and duck down+feather filling. Being cold is out of the question in these handsome winter jackets and coats.
