The World Cup Suit was made exclusively by Marks & Spencer for this year’s games. It’s been such a success that it’s almost sold out – a classy style in a neutral colour makes for a timeless piece.

M&S have been the official supplier since 2008, but this time round the suits have unexpectedly sold in record time, meaning M&S will need to make a hasty stock replen! A spokesman for M&S said: “The World Cup suit has been in store and online for a couple of months now. We’re delighted that customers are backing our style credentials and backing the England team too. “It’s selling really well for us and we’ve got plenty more on the way for customers.”

Hurray! Now all you need is a sophisticated pair of shapely, black dress shoes to complete the look. We’re more than accomplished when it comes to formal wear and our style of choice has to be Groom Hi Shine Black. An elegant and simple cap toe oxford, strong leather uppers finished in a hi shine coating for that extra polished look and a quality rubber sole. Teamed with some funky socks (we love Happy Socks), a crisp white oxford and a complementary tie, you’ve got the look down.
