Calum Best for House of Cavani
House of Cavani is excited to announce that Calum Best is one of the faces of our brand! We have featured quite a few celebrities and models in our suits, and Calum is next to join the ranks. For those of you unfamiliar with him, he's a British American television personality, and the son of famous Northern Irish footballer, George Best, and English model, Angie Best. Despite being born in the United States and growing up stateside for a significant portion of his childhood, where he actually began his modelling career in his mid teens in Los Angeles, California, he has made quite a name for himself over here in the UK and we're happy to have him on board!
He's smashing his career over here, having been in in reality TV shows like Fool Around With on E4, The Match on Sky One, Celebrity Love Island, which he won in 2006 on ITV. He's also been in Footballers' Wives, playing himself. There's been some travel shows which followed him around the world, a few stints in Celebrity Big Brother, he was on Celebs Go Dating and more!
Calum has done a lot of charity work and is involved in many different ones, currently being the patron of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics ("Nacoa"), a UK charity providing support to children affected by a parent's drinking. He's also no stranger to designing as he has his own crystal jewellery brand called Aura by Calum, which is unisex, and he's released own name fragrances in the past too.
With all of this under his belt, and the tabloids previous unfair portrayals of him in the past, you will be pleased to know he's nothing but a true gentleman, extremely polite, relaxed, and very easy to chat to, making our photoshoot with him a couple of months ago, a pure pleasure. It helps that he knows how to pose and looks good in all of the House of Cavani suits we put him in, making him extremely talented at his job.
We did the shoot at the ever gorgeous Manor House Hotel in Chippenham, just outside of Bath, and it was such a stunning location, as you can see, we ended up getting some perfect shots and the weather was definitely on our side that day. Now lets move onto the suits Calum was wearing and take a look at some of the picture perfect images as well.
First up, at the top of this post is our iconic tweed Tommy Suit in brown, paired with a light pink tie and pocket square. This suit is perfect for getting that Peaky Blinders look that everyone loves at the moment. It's also an ideal option now that the weather is cooler since tweed is warm. It's a very versatile option for the country look. With a subtle red and blue check running through it, it means you can regularly chose various different accessories to complement it.
Again, that classic Peaky Blinders vibe here is just perfect! This is the Albert Grey Tweed Suit, which is one of our best sellers here at House of Cavani, and it looks fantastic when worn with the light blue tie and pocket square, finished off with the matching flat cap, and our Kingston slim fit navy overcoat worn over the top. It doesn't get more Peaky Blinders inspired than this, all while looking modern and fashionable, not dated. There's something about this that's a classic, and Calum just rocks it.
The suit featured above is the ideal light weight Radika suit, which is a cream, shade with a subtle check on it. You can visualise this one being worn at Summer garden parties and really allowing you to stand out from the crowd. You can go with a navy tie and pocket square to keep in theme with the pattern, or jazz it up with something bright as cream goes with anything. One thing is for sure though, it really gives off that cool guy vibe and if you have the confidence to pull it off, you will be the best dressed man in the Summer!
David Beckham inspired this look here with our golden Lennox Beige toned waistcoat, paired with a Steele Blue suit. It's become quite iconic to have a different coloured waistcoat to your suit, and we recommend doing it this way! It's one way to stand out and make a more fashion conscious choice with a suit. Cream and navy is a great pairing, however, you can always go for different combinations such as grey with navy or even grey with black.
Another one of our best sellers, the Martez Brown, and Calum looks perfect in it. A darker shade of Autumnal brown with earthy tones to it, it's one of those suits that will literally suit anyone. It's one of our hottest selling three pieces for a reason! Again, as it's tweed, this can be used for a Peaky Blinders look if you love that! Otherwise, it's ideal for looking smart, but in a slightly more casual way. It also boasts a really nice fit and looks classic when it's on, you can't go wrong.
The suit above on Calum is our Miles suit, in a navy check, and it looks really good worn with lilac or light blue ties, to complement the cool tones of the fabric. If you're bored of brown and grey, this could be the perfect option for you! Plus, this colour works for the Winter as much as it does for the Summer, so it's an all round versatile suit for the entire year.
Now you're bound to have some festive Christmas parties coming up towards the end of this year, or even some New Years Eve celebrations, and what's more perfect than velvet? We put Calum in a House of Cavani Velvet Blazer in Wine, but styled it like a tuxedo, so he has tuxedo trousers, a white shirt, and a black bow tie. It doesn't get more festive and season appropriate than this! If Wine isn't your shade, we also have it in Black, Navy, and Green! This jacket is so beautiful that Calum even took it home with him after the shoot! Hopefully the paparazzi spot him in it soon, towards the end of the year.
And finally, we have the Connall suit in Brown, which has a subtle check pattern to it as well. We styled this one with burgundy because it's such a complementing colour to work with brown, especially during the Autumn season that we're currently in. It will easily work with navy, other shades of brown, and sometimes even something bright though, so don't be afraid to step outside of the box sometimes if you feel like jazzing it up!
So that's it, Calum Best for House of Cavani and we think he looks amazing in all of these suits, doesn't he? Which is your favourite? Just click the links below each suit to purchase the same pieces as Calum.
