In the movie Colin Firth plays a James Bond-like 'Kingsman' espionage agent 'Harry Hart', code-named 'Galahad'. During a mission in the Middle East in 1997 a fellow agent was killed saving the team and Harry tells his widow if she ever needs help, for her or her son, to call him.

Fast-forward several years and a grownup 'Gary "Eggsy" Unwin' is an unemployed, aimless youth getting into trouble with the cops. After being arrested for stealing a car he calls Harry for help and is introduced the secret world of international espionage, Saville Row tailored suits, evil masterminds and bullet-proof umbrellas.

Feeling like he owes his father a debt, Galahad suggests that Eggsy would be a great candidate for Kingsman training.

Galahad believes "The suit is a modern gentleman's armour. And the Kingsman agents are the new knights", and that's why he's always impeccably dressed in the movie, sporting classic British gentleman's attire.

Jackson) world domination plans.
