The 2022 Virgin British Academy Television Awards continued the very busy award season last night (Sunday 8th May 2022) as many stars and nominees attended the event at Royal Festival Hall in London. As Richard Ayoade hosted the ceremony, the famous BAFTA awards were handed out in categories such as Leading Actor, Entertainment and Must-see Moment. Before that, the red carpet was rolled out and we at A Hand Tailored Suit have selected some of our favourite suits from the gentlemen who were there.
Callum Scott Howells
Actor Callum Scott Howells was amongst the cast of the series "It's A Sin" in attendance last night as he was nominated for Supporting Actor in the show. For the event, he sported a smart Valentino mix-and-match attire consisting of a teal blazer that was double-breasted in cut, designed with peak lapels and a four-button front. The classic features of a chest welt pocket and two flapped pockets could also be seen on the item, along with the hint of white lining down the centre front edge. Underneath, a matte purple bow blouse is worn and tucked into a pair of plum straight-leg trousers, with the hem just brushing the floor.
TV presenter Rhys Stephenson looked dapper in a dark brown double-breasted suit, finished with contrasting satin detailing on the peak lapels and buttons. The jacket itself was constructed with a six-button front and two flapped pockets low down, the jets also cut from the same black satin cloth. With a welt pocket on the chest and slim trousers, his attire is finished with a white pleated evening dress shirt. A winged collar was the preferred choice for his classic black bow tie.
Comedian Munya Chawawa's show "Race Around Britain" was nominated for Comedy Entertainment Programme at this year's BAFTAs and on the night, he donned a pastel blue two-piece suit on the red carpet. The outfit had a cool balance of smart/casual as the jacket was designed with a two-button front and notch lapels, worn over his patterned open-collar shirt. The classic welt and flapped pockets were incorporated in the construction as the sleeves would feature four light brown horn buttons on the cuffs. The trousers were slim and finished with a sharp centre crease, whilst the hem fell to just above the shoes.
Dancing champion and "Strictly Come Dancing" professional Giovanni Pernice was ready for the evening in a sharp three-piece black evening suit with a contrasting black velvet jacket, as he and his 2021 "Strictly" champion Rose Ayling-Ellis won Virgin Media's Must-see Moment. The shawl collar was a matte finish to match the waistcoat and trousers, whilst the welt pocket was accessorised with a sharp white pocket square. Flapped pockets sat low down on the one-button jacket, finished with four buttons on the cuffs and the white double cuffs slightly on show underneath. The waistcoat was single-breasted and fastened with five buttons, the hem cut with a wide notched hem and mid-scooped neckline over his black studded dress shirt.
Actor Martin Freeman sported a dark grey single-breasted dinner jacket on the BAFTAs red carpet last night, the item itself designed with a thin and contrasting dark green velvet shawl collar with the button to match. The welt pocket was wide and accessorised with a folded white pocket square to match his white dress shirt. It was tucked into a black pleated cummerbund and styled over his slim trousers, these finished with a sharp centre crease and the hem just sitting on the tops of his shoes. With four dark green velvet buttons on the cuffs and a classic collar on the shirt, other details include thin flapped pockets below the waist and a black bow tie to complete the attire.
Choreographer and "Strictly Come Dancing" professional Johannes Radebe was in attendance at the BAFTAs as the show itself was nominated for Entertainment Programme this year. For his attire, he wore a modern cut tailored suit consisting of a cropped double-breasted jacket and very high-waisted trousers. It was dark blue in colour and woven with a check design with a matching dark blue shirt underneath, this worn open-collar and with a extra piece hanging down from this. The jacket front included four buttons, angled welt pocket and notch lapels with a boxy shoulder structure, the ensemble finished with the hem sitting on top of his shoes and a centre crease.
Owain Wyn Evan
Journalist and weather presenter Owain Wyn Evan was ready for the evening in a dazzling black dinner jacket and trouser combination, worn with a patterned shirt underneath. The jacket itself was fastened with a single light grey velvet button to match the thin velvet shawl collar and gauntlet cuffs that featured. The jacket was fully covered in sequins in a diamond-check design, including the accompanying jacket fabric belt. The trousers were tapered to the hem and covered the top of his boots whilst finished with a subtle centre crease for his evening outfit.
Actor Omari Douglas sported a white monochromatic Valentino look on the red carpet and to yesterday's BAFTA Awards along with his fellow "It's A Sin" cast. The jacket was double-breasted with a four-button front and wide peak lapels that were rounded on the point. Two thin double jet pockets were positioned low down on the jacket with a welt pocket on the chest and the shoulders slightly oversized for a relaxed feel. The white shirt was worn open collar with a neck tie for the accessory, the shirt itself tucked into his cropped trousers with a slight flare to the hem.
