What’s New In Men’s Suits & Sport Coats – Fall 2013

Read full article  |  6 Comments

Somewhere along the sartorial timeline, hordes of men became convinced that blue and grey were the only acceptable colors for suits.   If you’re reading this, odds are you’re not stuck in that narrow mindset.  Still, we’d like to encourage those whose suit wardrobes are a bit basic to consider broadening their horizons, as well as assuage those who embrace color and pattern that we’ve got you covered.  This fall our campaign against the ordinary includes earth tones such as chocolate brown and olive. We’ve given brown a shot of elegance and formality by rendering it in a double-breasted pinstripe model, as well as a single-breasted version with subtle lavender stripes.

Men's Linen & Wool Two-Button SuitWhen it comes to natural fibers, there are really only a handful of options.  But when you blend them together, you create entirely new hybrids that combine the best of both worlds, and the result is often more distinctive—or even more practical—than the more typical purebred varieties.

Take wool, now and forever the king of suit fabrics.  But there’s a flipside to wool: Its ubiquity can also make it the anonymous pawn of suit fabrics, making you just another working-stiff in his worsted uniform.  But blend wool with silk and suddenly you’ve got a fabric that’s anything but ordinary, wonderfully textured and with lightness and visual interest that are perfect for summer… Continue>>

Men's Cotton & Linen Sport ShirtWith today’s high-tech lightweight wools, you can wear the same suit for most of the year and still be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you have to look the same, as your shirts, ties and other accessories can express the changing seasons through the use of color.

And at no other time is that more fun than in summer, when all the bright shades that first dawned in spring get amped up even more, and fun fabrics like madras and seersucker take their place in the sun.

Not only does season-specific color sharpen your look, it’s also a budget-conscious… Continue>>

In addition to providing a huge style boost due to their relative rarity, vests are also a terrific layering option in springtime. It’s easy to think of them as a fall/winter item you wear under a tweed sport coat, but during the transitional months you’re not wearing an overcoat, and a vest can give you just the right amount of added warmth.

Men's Three Piece SuitWhile many rules of dress have become antiquated, a certain logic will always influence menswear, and much of this comes down to questions of formality. Especially with business dress or occasions where appropriateness is favored, there are some basic guidelines that are worth following.
