As of this autumn, Austin Reed will welcome a new face to its ranks in the form of Spooks star Rupert Penry-Jones.
The actor has signed on to star in the brand’s forthcoming ad campaign, and was chosen for his ‘sophisticated model looks; natural charm and innate sense of style.’
“Rupert is an extremely talented and accomplished actor, his natural style and ability to relate to our core customer makes him the perfect ambassador for the Austin Reed brand,” said Nick Hollingworth, chief executive of Austin Reed.
He certainly has the ‘model looks’ to carry it off, it is any wonder why he wasn’t nabbed earlier.
