Elba’s combination with the brand continues to succeed as the parent company SuperGroup operationg income reportedly reached the £63. 9 million point in 2o15.
Here’s what Elba had to say about the company last year:
“I love clothes. I’m 42 years old now and I wear clothes that I can be comfortable in, that will look good for a long time and that I can wear from set to a dinner party to a club. Functionality and a sense of durability were the key things for me.”
“Look, I’m no fashion guru, but I think I know how to dress and I think I know what a man wants to look like. That’s all part of being an actor and choosing costumes, knowing how something will make your character look and feel.”
“The fact that I could actually influence how people dress is a dream.”
In 2015 he was named one of GQ magazine’s 50 best dressed British men and was awarded an OBE in January
