In collaboration with Costume Designer, Penny Rose, Paul Smith supplies the universe’s most formidable alien-policing organisation with tailoring to suit their intergalactic work. Together, Paul and Penny designed custom pieces for five of the agency’s most illustrious men and women in black, as well as outfitting the wider cast of crime-fighters.

Previous instalments of the world-famous film franchise have cemented the MIB’s suits amongst the most iconic tailored garments in the stratosphere. Enlisting the help of Paul Smith — famed for tailoring for both men and women — seemed a natural step. For the new instalment of the film’s franchise, the MIB are elegantly attired with a nod to fashion, better tailored than ever before.


Together, Penny and Paul have designed tailoring for Agents H (Chris Hemsworth) and M (Tessa Thompson). Agent H challenges the constrictions of the MIB uniform with a colourful lining (a known feature of Paul Smith tailoring) and a pair of Paul Smith signature stripe socks that give an irreverent finish. Agent M wears a two-button double-breasted trouser suit. Both suits are made in Paul Smith’s A Suit To Travel In cloth, an all-wool cloth that has natural crease resistance, making the tailoring perfectly suited to keep the agents looking flawless whilst travelling through space and time.

Additionally, Agent O (Emma Thompson) makes a return to the iconic film franchise wearing one-off Paul Smith designs alongside High T (Liam Neeson) and Agent C (Rafe Spall) who also wear Paul Smith suits, a three-piece and two-piece respectively.
