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

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.

Brown also shows up in our country-gent inspired sport coats, such as our Pure Wool Windowpane Sport Coat with English details such as side vents and ticket pocket, and a particularly distinguished tan with brown windowpane double-breasted Sport Coat that is Duke of Windsor all the way.  Few woolens have the drape and texture of flannel, but we’ve taken care to craft a lightweight version more appropriate for moderate autumn temperatures. Made of fine Italian flannel in classic pinstripes, it comes with dapper collar trim and lining, not to mention half-canvas construction.

Three-piece suits have made quite the comeback, and our Wool Flannel Chalk Stripe Three-Piece Suit is a power suit that commands attention. The jacket comes with angled hacking pockets (plus ticket pocket), while the vest comes with lapels for extra swagger. And if you can’t get enough of vests, we’ve got stand-alones in more patterns than ever, including stripes, windowpanes and checks.

One need not be limited to woolens for Fall though. The plush look and feel of cotton corduroy – pants or a cool, military inspired sport coat – provide a rich and comfortable choice.  As for pants, consider something unexpected like our Wool Sharkskin Pants, or our luxurious Wool & Cashmere Pants in shades of olive, rust and amethyst.


  1. Suits are great, I feel more comfortable in them than in jeans.

    I am in the market of a new suit, I work in the funeral business and mine is getting worn out. I am a larger guy, 300lbs, and was wondering if I could wear a Three-piece or is that a no no for large guys?

    Thanks for answering my question.

  2. Thanks for the great question, Douglas! A larger gentleman can certainly wear a three piece suit. A single breasted jacket with a vest will help create a slimmer look. We offer a Suit Separates Collection, available in four colors, which will allow you the option of a two or three piece suit. We also have three beautiful suits that are part of our Holiday Collection.

    I too am a big man 245lbs. Do your suits have a full cut or are they designed for the smaller man?

  4. Thank you for your question, Charles! Our suits are generously cut and should work well for you.

    Please keep in mind that we do offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are unhappy with the fit of the suit, you may certainly return it to us for an exchange or a refund of the purchase price. We included a return form in every package and you can print a return label from our website.

  5. I have purchased three types of blazers from yours in the last three months, two are double breasted ventless and the other is a three buttons middle vent. The hands appear too large, my tailor had to do some amendments. You should look into this please.

  6. Thank you for your feedback, Kole! We are sorry to hear that the hands were too large; however, we are happy that your tailor was able to make the adjustments for you. I have forwarded your comments to our Merchandising Department and we will definitely take this under review.

    We apologize for any inconvenience you may have been caused. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact us again!
