Fifty Shades of Grey is the most hotly anticipated movie of 2015 and the star attraction is the eponymous Christian Grey who is already being billed as a style icon before the movie has even been released. His suaveness is unparalleled and it is a look that a lot of men will be aiming to replicate in the not too distant future.

If you've forgotten to make a restaurant booking this Valentine's Day, you can at least try to replicate the look of Christian Grey from the sure to be hit movie when you take your significant other to see it - here's how:

The Suit

The most iconic and important element when it comes to the style of businessman, Christian Grey, is, as you might expect, his suit and there are plenty of fantastic tailored suits to choose from that will help you capture his infinitely stylish look and impress the lady in your life this Valentine's Day. Brands like Hackett (as pictured above) offer impeccably crafted suits that are dripping in sartorial style and will have you turning heads in a manner that Grey himself would be impressed with.

Hackett is available at Fenwick Brent Cross, Colchester and Kingston.

The Tie

For anyone who has read the book, they will know that ties feature prominently to say the least and if you want to get the right look in the tie department, what better choice than the great Christian Grey tie which forms part of the Official Pleasure Collection from Love Honey. A tie will act as the cornerstone of a sophisticated look and when choosing this type of accessory, you need to ensure it matches the other components of your outfit - you'd never see Christian Grey with a mismatched suit / tie combo!

The Christian Grey tie is available now at Fenwick Bond Street.

The Knitwear

Needless to say, no matter how sartorially superior Christian Grey is, he can't remain in a suit the whole time and during his downtime away from the boardroom, he will likely be seen sporting something that boasts unparalleled style and simplicity such as the fantastically functional and fashionable pullover from John Smedley above.

The Shirt

Though, if the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is to be believed, Christian Grey spends more time out of his shirt than in it, one still needs to consider the shirt a staple of achieving the look of the uber-stylish anti-hero of the movie. A crisp, simple and wonderfully crafted white shirt is very much the call of the day in the shirt department and something like the slim-fit, Hugo Boss shirt with shark collar above ticks all of the right boxes.

Hugo Boss is available at Fenwick Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

The Sportswear

Keeping fit is clearly a chief objective of Christian Grey and his sharply tailored suits won't help him out much in this regard so a few items of sportwear are undoubtedly in order and if you're planning on a few morning jogs a la Grey himself above, the Fred Perry Hooded Sweatshirt above will be the ideal running companion.

Fred Perry is available in Fenwick Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle and York.

The Shoes

 You could have the dapperest suit in all the land but if you don't get the shoes right, it will all be moot and when it comes to capturing Christian Grey's painfully cool aesthetic, a pair of black leather shoes from Paul Smith will, if you'll excuse the woeful pun, a step in the right direction. Functional, comfortable and stylish, these wonderful shoes typify the luxurious nature of the Paul Smith brand and will help you accomplish your Christian Grey look with some considerable aplomb.

Paul Smith is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells and York.

The Grooming Set

Christian Grey is certainly one well kept man but that isn't something that just comes naturally and a first rate grooming routine will be part and parcel of looking just as good as he does. If it's the ultimate in men's grooming luxury that you're after (Christian Grey wouldn't accept any less) then it's difficult to look beyond Nubo and their stimulating skincare goods that will bring your face to life and leave you with skin that even Grey himself would be proud of.

Nubo is available at Fenwick Bond Street.
