When it comes to movie premiere dress codes, it would seem that—contrary to popular belief—Jon Snow actually knows everything. Opting for an autumnal-hued Percival polo and a pair of pressed tailored trousers, Kit Harington embodied an image of laidback luxury as he celebrated with cast and crew at the premiere party of his latest film Baby Ruby following the 2022 The Toronto International Film Festival.
Experts in cultivating said louche vibe, Christopher Gove’s British brand, Percival, has been steadily infiltrating some of the most enviable wardrobes in show business, from Chris Evans’ to The Rock’s. And now? Game of Thrones alumni.
Designed, as always, in Percival’s Hackney studio, and made by master knitters, Kit’s Everyday Knit is characterized by its tight, finely woven knit construction contrasted only by its silver-tone popper fastening. Speaking of the piece, Percival’s founder and sole designer Christopher Gove says, “We bring back these knits every year in fresh colors and the Toffee looks great on Kit. They’re so versatile in how you can wear them, able to be worn buttoned up or comfortably layered over a vest or T-shirt.”
When it comes to styling, Harington kept things classic and poised, sealing his look’s lofty Parisian feel with his signature scruff and tousled locks. Impeccable grooming aside, it was in reaching for the pair of navy linen trousers and low-top white trainers that he created a sleek ensemble that can be easily be emulated. The trousers we’ve picked out below from Raey and Reiss make for particularly effective dupes thanks to their similar pleating and lightweight construction, while Common Project’s Original Achilles sneakers and Everlane’s white Forever trainers happily stand in place of Kit’s pair.
But what’s so special about the chilled-out offerings of Percival, we hear you ask? Despite the label’s relatively short lifespan, Percival has since grown itself a cult following with its colorful collections and rich, knit constructions, proving to be just as popular across the pond as on British soil. In fact, the label has become all but synonymous with smart-casual images of everyday cool—something which seemingly strikes a chord with even the most discerning members of the MCU…Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, and Andrew Garfield are all fans, FYI.
With that in mind, readers shouldn’t be shocked if Percival’s Everyday Knit pops up in other celebrity wardrobes, either in Kit Harington’s favored toffee, or its other, equally seasonal, forest green option.
