Every season, a suit comes along that stands out for all the right reasons. For Autumn/Winter ’18, the Bodium in a tonal tan colour is our top choice in tailoring from our new collection. Impactful by design and colour, it’s a powerful player in statement-making suiting, but it’s the two-piece’s adaptability to work in both a super formal setting or as a rakish take on smart-casual that really makes it shine.
In any setting, the Bodium suit makes a smart impression. Wear it with confidence as an office-ready co-ord or adapt each individual piece to suit a more casual dress code.
For occasions that require a well-dressed, put-together polish, the Bodium as a full suit won’t let you down. As sharp as it is sartorial, the check pattern gives it a certain boardroom-ready edge, but with the right choice of accessories it also holds sway as a sophisticated option for winter-wedding dressing. When it comes to colour, stay within the lines and look to warm, rustic options to complement: the rust-coloured polka-dot tie is a perfect example of just how well this pairing works.
Brown is not the most obvious choice when it comes to suiting – most men will favour black or navy in its place – but it can be a refreshing relief from the mundane and there is a certain gentlemanliness to the warm chocolate shade. Take advantage of this neutral hue and pair with equally warm colours. The ecru knitted jumper and camel coat evoke the snug mood of autumn and winter, perfect for weekend downtime spent in cosy pubs or time spent in the countryside.
Wearing a full suit on a date is, well, it’s a bit much, particularly in those early stages. That being said, you can still incorporate tailoring elements for an outfit that’s impresses rather than intimidates. Take the Bodium blazer’s classic double-breasted style and slightly dress it down with a rollneck. Again, keep colours in mind: the chocolate option pictured is tone-on-tone done right. When it comes to trousers, you can either opt for a more formal pair, or, if you want to take it down a notch, swap them out for a pair of dark-wash jeans. And voila: you’ve got a date-night outfit that says you take pride in your appearance without coming across try-hard.
