Ambassadors of Style - British Ambassador to Italy

Posted: Jun 16 2015

Archer + Peyton are proud to provide the finest Italian production combined with a unique British twist of style for the men of the world.

As part of our continuous search for new styles, trends and insights we are pleased to announce our new blog feature “Ambassadors of Style”

In each instalment we will feature new Ambassadors of Style; people who are both leading in their field and representing the combination of Archer +Peyton attributes of style and quality.

Ambassadors are the primary link for nations with their friends and neighbours and they represent their country to the world. As hosts to Heads of State, International dignitaries and eminent members of society an Ambassador must not only be worldly in their knowledge but must also be elegantly turned out and hold an air of refinement to match their station: The finest suits, ties, watches, shoes and of course socks must therefore be a staple of any ambassadors wardrobe.

Our first Ambassador of Style is Christopher Prentice, the British Ambassador to Italy. Christopher has represented the UK in Washington, Budapest, Baghdad and Rome, his roles have changed but he has maintained his British style:

We like the light purple and blue striped tie combined with a dark grey suit and crisp white shirt. Elegantly contrasting with the Red, White and Blue in the background.

When walking on the red carpet is common place, a strong pinstriped suit paired with a burgundy, blue dot tie ensures that Christopher stands out as a man of caliber and composure:

When the Queen of England chooses for you to join the Order of St Michael and St George in her Birthday honours list, it is essential that you a dressed for the occasion. Red and Purple are colours befitting a royal occasion and Christopher has considerately chosen a navy suit to compliment:

Ambassadors enter office and must make first impressions as well as eloquent Parting Shots 

We think that Archer + Peyton’s Classic Long socks would be the perfect combination for an Ambassador.  


The socks featured above are all 100% EGYPTIAN COTTON and can be found at Archer + Peyton Classic Collection

Have an excellent week,

Archer + Peyton
