Chester Barrie is, for the sixth year in succession, the menswear sponsor of The Laurence Olivier Awards and the brand was worn by many of the nominees and presenters at yesterday’s ceremony.Chester Barrie was honoured to have dressed Adam J Bernard who won Best Actor in Supporting Role in a Musical and Jason Manford who hosted the evening; both wore a classic black dinner suit. Best Theatre Choreographer winner Matthew Bourne opted for a blue Jacquard Jacket. Beautifully redolent of the style of the 30s film star, jackets are strong on the shoulders and cut to the hips, creating a striking silhouette. Chester Barrie concentrates on upholding its formalwear reputation by making men look their best when it matters most. In a celebration of all that is glamorous in the world of menswear Chester Barrie takes classic looks and adds sparkle and modernity. At the heart of the collection is the classic black Chester Barrie dinner suit, fashioned with peak lapels and jetted pockets it is a style that will stand the test of time. On the evening Chester Barrie dressed Adam J Bernard, Alfie Bow, Tim Minchin, Andrew Langtree, Ben Forster, Charlie Stemp, David Fynn, Jamie Lambert, Julian Clarey, Matthew Bourne, Nathan Lane, Paul Thornley, Sam Archer and Tom Hollander.
