Though it may dismay sartorial purists, tailoring has undergone a quiet revolution in recent seasons. No longer is there only one way to wear a suit, in fact, you’re utterly spoilt for choice. Yes workwear tailoring will always have its place in the wardrobes (and offices) of men everywhere, however beyond the strictures of the suit for work putting on tailoring is ultimately what you make of it. A suit with a T-shirt? Sure. A blazer from one suit and a pair of trousers from another? Fine by us. For SS17 our suits come steeped in heritage and craftsmanship, giving you the very best sartorial backbone on which to experiment.
Now more than ever, when it comes to wearing suits men are ripping up the rule book and discovering that unlikely additions – such as sportswear – make the most stylish companions.
The most stylish way to go down the square route? Pass over Prince of Wales check in favour of bolder window pane check.
Pink is having a menswear moment, and even tailoring isn’t impervious to its charms. Try a pink knit and sneakers with a suit to dress up SS17’s most popular pastel.
The days of the suit as a straitjacket are far behind us. Now tailoring is arguably at its most stylish when paired in unexpected combinations.
Pattern on pattern may initially sound like a headache-inducing style move, but subtle checks and micro polka dots can in fact come together harmoniously.
For SS17 stripes have graduated from T-shirts to become just as canny a style choice when worn on tailoring and formal shirts too.
For those men who avoid pattern like the plague, textured weaves offer a much subtler (and much more touchable) alternative.
No longer is it the case that a suit needs a shirt and tie to feel complete. Try a white grandad collar shirt with your suit for an effortless new spin.
Leave your cardigan in the wardrobe, the coolest way to add warmth when wearing a suit currently comes in the form of the padded gilet.
