Whether you wear suits daily or reserve them for special occasions, you likely have one that you consider your all-rounder – that dependable set that keeps you looking and feeling sharp.
Either way, your formal roster will need a refresh every now and then, and that fail-safe two-piece will require a successor. Taking our cue from the reliable clothing in question, we thought we’d outline what you need to look out for as you begin your search.
While there are many things to consider when choosing your new suit, fabric and colour are ideal starting points. When it comes to material, consider a blend that includes natural yarns like wool or cotton. A weave with a high percentage of natural threads has beneficial properties, like being equally breathable and warming – ideal if the two-piece becomes one of your rotational favourites all year round.
Naturally and for good reason, black is a smart, classic choice but you’ll find you get just as much wear out of navy and grey. Opting for dark, versatile tailoring gives you the opportunity to play around with your styling. You can easily alternate between patterned and plain shirts, as well as Oxfords, loafers and trainers. Though if you prefer to keep things minimal, a tie and pocket square are the easiest way to add a subtle point of difference to a dark suit.
Of course, shape is important, too – it dictates exactly how neatly it sits. Depending on your build, you can opt for a regular or slim fit. If you prefer something a little more exact you ought to try our made-to-measure service.
