3 essential suits every man needs

3 essential suits every man needs

Whether you’re an aspiring Don Draper or all your friends are getting hitched, owning more than one suit is a necessary part of every man’s life. Looking beyond the black suit you bought for your mate’s wedding 5 years ago, here are the 3 essential suits you should own.

Navy suit

Features:

Slim fit
Single breasted
Two button closure
Flat front pants
Mid-weight fabric- Super 100’s

This will be your staple, your go-to and the suit that your practically live in. If you’re going to ignore the rest of this blog and stick to owning one suit, make it this one.

Dressing for work will be a breeze with a navy suit; simply add chestnut brogues and a white shirt for summer, or layer it up with a charcoal jumper for winter.

Need a suit for racing season? Your navy suit will be there for you. It will works well with bold, contrasting colours, so don’t be afraid to jazz it up with floral patterned shirts and bright pocket squares.

Finally, if wedding bells are ringing, your navy suit can be pared with tonal patterned shirts, a yellow floral lapel pin and even a slim black tie depending on the nature of the wedding.

Grey suit

Features:

Slim fit
Single breasted
Two-button closure
Flat front pants
Mid-weight fabric- Super 100’s

The trick to buying the right kind of grey suit is all about sorting through fifty shades of grey until you find the right one for you. The charcoal side of things is more suited to winter while light greys are perfect for summer. You’ll want the perfect in-between so you can wear it all year round and pair the pants with different coloured blazers.

A grey suit with a navy tie and white shirt is your ticket to a crisp, clean professional look. You can spice it up with a navy, mini-geo patterned shirt or add a touch of maroon for winter styling.

Dinner suit

Features:

Slim fit
Single creased pants
Contrast lapels
Single button closure

You may not wear your dinner suit every week, but trust us, you’ll be thanking the heavens that you bought one when that black tie invitation invariably rolls around.

When buying your dinner suit, think James Bond suave. We love the look of contrast sateen lapels and a single, crisp crease through the front of the pants.

Depending on the occasion, you might want to invest in a dress shirt with pleats or a bib. For something a little more pared back, a simple bow tie or skinny black tie with a French cuff shirt will do the trick.
