Menswear Winter Suit Guide

With Christmas and New Year around the corner; full of plenty social events and festivities it would be silly to not have a suit guide in place.

The suit has many ways to make a man feel empowered; be it the tailored fit, the sleek cuts or simply the smart, elegant, dapper notion that it carries; we blame the glossy pages of GQ.

Whether your festive calendar is full or antics with work pals, or dinners with family and the significant other, this guide will sure you turn up in style.

The fit

The fit is one of the key factors in suit purchasing; get it right and you’re guaranteed to sway a few heads, get it wrong and you’ll end up looking like a boy in a man’s world.

Fitting tips:

  • Shoulders: a good suit should always look like it’s hugging your shoulders; not slouching or falling off of them
  • Arms: your shirts sleeves should end just above the wrists; so the shirt cuff is peeking just pass the suit jacket
  • Body: the jacket of your suit should contour your body, so get tailoring. By doing this you add shape and accentuate your shoulders, for a strong sleek look

The style: fabrics, print & texture

Looking good has you feeling good, there’s no doubt about it. If this is your first suit, you may be unsure of which fabrics and styles to opt for

Fabric tips:

  • Wool suits remain a firm favourite material for the modern gent; with its highly adaptable nature to temperature change, ability to wear well, and gives off that slight suave shine which you’d find in most suits on the market
  • Tweed is a great fabric for Winter that offers a timeless appeal to the gent wearing it. Tweed makes a fine winter suit choice as it’s thick, warm, water resistant, and durable. Tweed suits are heavier than your average and quite coarse to touch; if you don’t mind this feel of fabric then tweed is definitely the way to go to make a classic statement.
  • Herringbone is heavy, warm and durable, much like Tweed. What makes it different from Tweed is its distinctive zig-zag pattern. The thickness of this suit and its finer patterned detail give this an appeal of depth – perfect for the slimmer male.

Colours

  • Oxblood is such a great choice for the festive season; vastly adding character to your formal attire. Oxblood is a deeper shade of Burgundy, it holds a command of presence and attention whilst keeping that formal essence.
  • Cognac a much amber caramel alternative offering a neutral colour that is more modern and stylish than your traditional brown number. Cognac is perfect for adding a modern-day twist without being too over the top.
  • Green this colour is perfect for creating a statement which doesn’t look or feel forced. Hunters Green holds a classy alternative to your traditional Khaki tones, looking reserved and deep.

WHAT TO WEAR TO A FUNERAL.

Nobody wants to think about it; in fact a funeral is the last thing you want to be arranging an outfit for. But it’s life and it happens, there’s no way of avoiding it.

If you find yourself one day having to attend a funeral and are unsure of what to wear, it’s important to note that the kind of attire you wear depends on the culture, relationship to the family/person who has passed, the religious belief and where it is being held.

Remember you’re dressing out of respect for the person that has passed, so it’s important to dress in a respectable, smart manner. ‘New Girl’s’ lovable character Schmidt recently said; “I wanted to look fantastic for your father’s funeral, now I have nothing but the schmatta on my back”.

The typical attire for a funeral is the ‘traditional western attire’. This referring to a Christian ceremony, where a man wears a black suit and white shirt with a black tie. You could even consider a three-piece notch lapel suit in a conservative pinstripe with either a tie or even a bowtie, perhaps.

Colours are usually kept to a conservative palette – this doesn’t just mean black, colours from: maroon and navy are often alternatives. AVOID bright colours and bold fashion statements for any type of traditional ceremony – it’s a safe bet to ask the family if they have any dress codes they’d like – in remembrance of the person who’s passed.

Consider the time of year when planning what to wear. If the ceremony is outside and it’s warm, short-sleeved dress shirts can be worn under your suit. If the weather is a little colder then opt for a dark overcoat, which can be worn over the suit.

A church ceremony means it is important to remember that your jacket must be kept on throughout. Avoid unnecessary accessories; make sure you looked well groomed, clean and tidy and you’ll be dressed perfectly for the occasion
