3 elements to the perfect suit & shirt combination

 

It’s spring, and with the change to warmer weather comes the invites to engagement parties, weddings and race days, all of which require you to be wearing your finest. We’re here to make sure you’re ready to step out looking your best by nailing these 3 elements.

1) Tailored Suit

Every man should have a tailored suit in their arsenal. This is by far, one of the best investments you will make in life. A tailored suit not only portrays the ultimate sense of style, but it’s also a power play. A tailored suit essentially says, you know what you like and you’ll go and get it – it’s confidence in cloth.

2) French Cuff

The French cuff is a thing of beauty. It allows you to show off your cuff links that should no doubt match your suit, while at the same time giving that timeless colour contrast as it slightly pops out at the bottom of your suit sleeve.

A French cuff is always on point and will never date, however if you’re looking for an alternative cuff that doesn’t require cuff links, yet still screams sophistication, a James Bond cuff will do just that. Folded back but still using buttons, the slight rounding to the seam corner is perfection.

3) Italian Collar

An Italian collar, while very classy, does require a strong tie game. If you’re not a tie wearing kind  of guy then stick to your traditional collar.

The Italian collar is cut back, almost lining up horizontally with the shoulder line. This aspect allows you to wear a windsor knot and show off it’s detail. Go a step further and tailor the neck line of your shirts so that you don’t feel like you’re being chocked to death.

Alright guys, let’s suit up.
