At first, Hector seems like the ultimate English gentleman: masculine, confident, and soberly dressed. However, part of that assumption stems from the way he clashes with the more eccentric and scruffy-looking Freddie, a relationship that changes drastically in season 2. Actually, Hector has a very relaxed way of wearing a suit. He looks comfortable, and wears more casual styles than many of his peers — paler, and often made from thicker, softer fabrics, which fits in with his past as a sportsman and a soldier. Hector is happy to look conventional and has never really thought about dressing any other way, whereas Freddie’s new appearance of conventionality is just a veneer he puts on for his own purposes. — Menswear and The Hour: 50 Shades of Grey Suits.
