The British spy adventure Kingsman: The Secret Service starring an immaculately dressed Colin Firth, is proving such a hit that it’s influencing fashion.

Over five million people have seen the film in South Korea, making it the most popular adult-rated film screened there to date. And, according to The Chosun Ilbo, after seeing it, people are heading to tailors and online stores to snap up double-breasted suits.

The Lotte Department Store has seen men’s formalwear sales jump 7% and AK Plaza reports a 9% increase in February based on last year’s figures. Crucially, double-breasted suit sales have jumped 64%. — AFP Relaxnews
