On the show this week, Graham continued with his more muted suit colours in a light grey check. He added more colour and glitz with a rich chocolate-coloured shirt, a feather-patterned copper-coloured tie, and a pocket square that tied the two shades together. Check out his outfit in the clips below.

On the show, Patrick looked well-dressed but informal in a dark grey wool slim-fitting single-breasted suit with notch lapels and jetted pockets. He kept it relaxed by donning no tie and wearing the collar of his light blue shirt unbuttoned.
