Buying a Suit in 2016: Part 1

Looking into investing in a new suit? Though trends come and go, there are a few classics that you can purchase that will keep your look modern, not trendy. Here are three suit types to consider in the next year to keep your style timeless while on point.

1. Double Breasted: This class act of a suit is back and looks great on most men. If your height is 5’7 or less this may not be the best look for you.

2. Gray 3 Piece Suit: Gray is certainly trending right now but never considered trendy. You can wear gray with anything and looks great on all skin tones.

3. Peak Lapel: A classic more formal style of suit that is most often seen on tuxedos. It can really class up a navy suit like this one.  Pair it with the double breast and you cannot go wrong.

How to NOT Wear a Tie to Work

Hate wearing ties? There are ways to get away with it in some offices.  However, before you get too excited, some offices have a strict dress code and a tie is a must. If this isn’t the case for you but you tend to throw one on anyway because you aren’t sure how to style yourself without a tie, this is your lucky day. Here are some ideas how you can NOT wear a tie to work.

The way to achieve the look is to make sure you are adding at least one interesting accessory or detail.

That may be a silk scarf with a crisp striped dress shirt and suit.

Another interesting look can be created with a simple rounded collar style. It will certainly show off your attention to detail and a tie isn’t necessary. Start your custom round collared dress shirt with us by clicking here.

Or just adding a pocket square with a bright white shirt and well fitting suit may be enough. This guy gets bonus points for the matching briefcase and shoes.
