Find Your (Individual) Suit Style

To find the style that says 'you' more than any other, consider two things: which cut works best for your body shape and how easily will it slot into the rest of your wardrobe?

  • Single-Button Suit

    This is the most slimming, not to mention contemporary, type of suit. The deep cut of the lapels streamlines your silhouette.
  • Two-Button Suit

    Versatile and easy, a two-button suit is the foundation piece for a number of outfits. Designed to be worn with the second button undone, it’s an everyday staple. Casual & oh-so effortlessly cool.
  • Double Breasted Suit

    An enduring classic, the generous cut complements both casual attire and more formal ensembles. The double-breasted suit is a decidedly masculine option. Think Cary Grant in a black & white classic...

Changing Seasons, Changing Textures

A well-dressed gent considers the fabric of his suit carefully. Wool for the winter months and a lightweight cotton or linen mix for the summer months.

  • Plain weave

    Designed to have the same weave on the front and back, the plain weave is carefully constructed and lightweight in feel.
  • Herringbone

    Instantly recognisable, the herringbone weave has a striking chevron finish. Hard wearing and long-lasting, this ever-popular fabric is an easy way to make a statement.
  • Pinstripe

    A trusted classic, the pinstripe suit is neatly defined and elongates the body. Usually designed with two contrasting yarns, the finish is simple yet effective.
  • Prince of Wales

    Also known as ‘glen plaid’, this distinctive check – usually in soft, muted tones – incorporates stripes and cross-sections. A bold look best teamed with neutral shades.

One Little Magic Word: Fit

To find the style that says 'you' more than any other, consider two things: which suit fit works best for your body shape and how easily will it slot into the rest of your wardrobe?

  • The jacket should sit comfortably across the shoulders and back without feeling tight or pulling in any way.
  • When the jacket is buttoned, the lapels should not gape.
  • The jacket sleeve should end at the wrist bone. For extra style points? Leave half an inch of the shirt cuff visible for a stylish contrast.
  • The trouser leg should rest on the shoe and the fabric should not fall more than once.
