Purchasing your next suit is always an important investment, you want to pick the right cut, color and fit that can easily transform from ‘boardroom ready’ to ‘client meeting mingling’. Here are our top three tips to getting your suit situation sorted:
1. THE FIT – a perfectly tailored suit can make all the difference! Baggy and oversize is out and a more fitted cut is in! Opt for a slimmer style suit and take it to your tailor to perfect the fit. Pay careful attention to your sleeve and pant leg length, no one wants to look like their suit shrunk in the wash!
2. THE COLOR & FABRIC – to ensure your suit goes the distance, look at a tone more inline with your shirt colors and accessories. We suggest going for a rich navy or dark charcoal as it’s hard to go wrong when teaming back colors with these! With the colder months lying ahead of us, invest wisely in a wool blend suit. This will cut the chill in winter but also see you through to the warmer months as the fabric can breath. Sometimes it’s worth spending that little bit extra for a suit you can wear year round!
3. THE STYLING – get comfortable with dressing up and dressing down your suit! Putting on a shirt and tie is a no brainer so think beyond this! For the winter months have fun with layering colorful cashmere sweaters and sleek puffer jackets! You’ll stay stylish and warm all at the same time! Also, think about additional finishing touches such as pocket squares, leather belts, cuff links, tie pins and socks! It’s the attention to detail that could make the difference between sealing the deal or not!
