The Double Breasted Suit You Can Afford

Double Breasted Suit: How To Style It

The double breasted suit has made its’ way out of the 80’s and into the twenty-teens with slim fits and killer prices. This one from H&M is one of my recent fav purchases. I like to keep things simple and classic by styling it with a tassel loafer and slim sweater (in a festive pattern, of course). Try and keep things monochromatic by layering it with a tonal sweater and black loafers.

Give Your Navy Suit A Spring Refresh

With Spring officially showing up to the party (once we get through this random 24 hour snow sitch that is currently happening), it’s time to start thinking about giving your navy suit a bit of a refresh for Spring. While we are always advocates of investing in new staples like suiting, we say hold off for a bit and update the pieces worn with your suit. Swap your crisp white and blue shirting for shades of pink and yellow. With neckwear, have a little fun. Go for a throwback club tie (with the old school crests and shields, like Preston is wearing here) and try mixing gingham with stripes. Trust us, it will work. As for the bottom half, we’re expecting to see temps above 60 which means no socks in our book.

The 2016 hustle is on and we’re facing with some of our favorite Haberdashery pieces. Give the holiday sweaters and plaids a rest for a hot second and opt for festive suiting separates. We’ve been feeling the mix of waistcoats, slim blazers, and dark denim. If you can battle the cold sans socks, we say go for it. Happy 2016, guys…let’s do this.

August is one of those tricky months in terms of getting dressed everyday. In the beginning of the month, it’s all about tank tops, floral print shirts & the hopes of lazy beach days. As August comes to a close however, we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t snap if we saw one more ounce of seersucker or tropical prints roaming the city. Our minds are saying fall but our body temp is saying Summer. The key to transitional style & getting fall vibes during summer temps is all about color. With suiting, keep your tropical wool suit handy (in this case, the J.Crew ludlow) and go deeper with the shirt, shoes and belt (think maroon, dark grey, olive, navy, etc). Oh, and btw – feel free to stay sockless until the temps drop to festive sock level.

One of our favorite ways to wear a killer summer weight suit jacket is with our favorite white jeans. Keep the look tonal and slick by keeping the shirt & tie combo tonal and stay fresh south of the ankles by opting for a classic white court sneaker. Try this look on a NON summer Friday at the office…we bet you’ll like what happens.

We’ve added some extra milage to our classic navy suit for Summer by swapping out our striped & standard dress shirts for florals (and we couldn’t be happier about it). Opt for floral shirting based in dark rich tones that easily pair back to the suit and you’re golden.
