THE SUIT SPECTRUM

09.02.17

A new open-minded approach to men’s tailoring means that for SS17 the suit takes on a variety of different guises

SHOP WORKWEAR

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 men's suits and tailoring collection comes steeped in heritage and craftsmanship, giving you the very best sartorial backbone on which to experiment.

SPORTING HERO

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. Add a bomber jacket to your ensemble to join the rebellion.

 
SQUARE ROUTE

The most stylish way to go down the square route? Pass over Prince of Wales check in favour of bolder window pane check, impeccable on a classy navy suit.

 
THINK PINK

Pink is having a menswear moment, and even tailoring isn’t impervious to its charms. Try a pink knit and sneakers with a dusky rose suit to dress up SS17’s most popular pastel.

 
MIX AND MATCH

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 like a textured blazer or black t-shirt.

 
PATTERN PERFECTED

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 - don't dismiss the style possibilities of printed shirts.

 
STRIPE SEASON

For SS17 stripes have graduated from t-shirts to become just as canny a style choice when worn on tailoring and formal shirts too.

 
WONDERFUL WEAVES

For those men who avoid pattern like the plague, textured weaves offer a much subtler (and much more touchable) alternative, especially paired with a modern fit suit.

 
WHITE COLLAR

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.

 

ULTIMATE UTILITY

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.
