Whether he's covering Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" or performing an acoustic version of "Stay With Me" at this year's MTV VMAs, Sam Smith knows a thing or two about making us swoon over his angelic voice. Now we have one more reason to fall head over heels for the always well-dressed British crooner — he'll be performing on his 2014 North American tour in custom designed suits by Calvin Klein (one of The Hollywood Reporter's Top 25 Red-Carpet Designers). We're latching onto this, indeed.

Smith will wear slim-fitted suits in dark, muted colors (navy and shades of gray) designed by Italo Zucchelli, men's creative director of Calvin Klein, along with dress shirts and suede boots.

"When I wrote my record, I had to think very deeply about how I wanted to represent myself. I wanted people to focus on the music, and I wanted my clothes to marry my music and work hand-in-hand," Smith told WWD. "I also wanted to look classic, but look my age, yet at the same time, ageless." He added that Frank Sinatra was his fashion icon: "His style forced you to listen to his voice, but it was his clothes and style that helped make his music sound like dollar bills."

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter most recently sported the American fashion label while attending the 2014 MTV VMAs, where he was nominated for Best Male Video and MTV Artist to Watch.
