Acquascutum Ads F/W 08

John Emary opened up his first luxury menswear shop in 1851 and succeeded in developing and patented the first waterproof cloth in 1853.  Shortly after he changed the name of his company to Aquascutum, which means water-shield in Latin.

Fast forward to 2008, Aquascutum released its fall/winter 08 ad campaign shot by Mario Sorrenti and featuring Brazilian bombshell Giselle Bundchen and Maire-Antoinette actor Jamie Dornan.

The ads are beautiful.  I love the chemistry between Jamie and Giselle, eat your heart out Mr. Brady.  Nothing is better than a well-tailored grey suit and the suit Jamie is wearing is perfection. A grey suit is the most versatile suit you can own it works with brown and black shoes.  The black trench Jamie is wearing as he descends the escalator is very rich looking.
