First things first – why are the pictures on Yoox.com of such poor quality? They make Asos.com’s pictures look like a Rankin masterpiece. I wouldn’t usually complain about these things, but when it comes to this Dior Homme silver suit, you need high quality pictures to make a decision.

Just last night, the city of London was buzzing with the excitement of celebrity; that of the glorious Kate Hudson and heavily scent-sponsored Matthew McConaughey.

If you’ve been inspired by Cheap Monday’s
Kotsym range but can’t wait until they decide to bring the collection into
stores, then you’ll love this Endovanera
cropped jacket
. It has a fit similar to the Cheap Monday suit and is made
of 100% Pima cotton, which will make it a joy to wear. Well, as much of a joy
as wearing a suit can be. I’m not promising an orgasmic experience here.

range. Featuring suits, trench coats and the ubiquitous check shirt, the
detailing on the items is what they’re hoping will set them apart. The asymmetrical
buttoning on the trench coats is similar to 70’s leather jackets and the suits
are very slim fit.

The next look to make our list is the awkward length. This was a hard one to put into this feature as some do manage to pull it off but not everyone is Terence Koh and it only took a look at the local fashionisto’s crash and burn outfit of Kriss van Assche-style combat with tight tee to know that this was one to be hastily put down.

We’re all going to need a suit at some
point in our lives, so why not get one on sale? Dries Van Noten are
a brand we’ve featured before and for good reason. Suits in general are pretty
timeless, unless you get one with skulls on it or something, so you’re safe in
the knowledge that they’ll never be out of season.  DVN suits are tailored impeccably, leading to
a very flattering fit.
