After Tyra Banks posing as Michelle Obama in September’s Harper’s Bazaar, Interview has pulled in Josh Brolin to rock the presidential trend for their latest cover. Josh is actually playing President George Bush in an up-coming film, titled ‘Bush,’ directed by Oliver Stone. However, on the cover he is photographed by Mikael Jansson.

I’m not the biggest fan of custom-altered off the peg suits, if you want a well-fitting suit then save up and visit a tailor.

Having said that there’s no denying that a personalised suit serves a purpose and is great for those who want the next step up from off the peg. Suitopia, a Swedish company, offer a service which includes embroidered initials, choice of fabrics and cut.
