If you work in an office dominated by a smart casual dress code, you may find yourself actually wanting to wear a suit from time to time. For these people, Mad Men has become compulsive viewing. Not just because it’s a great show, but it harks back to a time when men actually wore all three pieces of their suit to work. Today’s average rucksack carrying, shirt and no tie wearing office worker could do with taking a few style tips from Don Draper (pictured left).

Burton linen summer jacket

By admin on April 1st, 2008

burton jacket suit.jpgBurton’s SB2 jacket is a great summer alternative to pinstripe or plain navy but is dark enough to avoid comparisons with the man from Del Monte. It’ll look great with a cobalt blue or coral tie, but equally good teamed with similar neutrals.

The jacket will set you back £69 which is a good price considering it’s 100% linen, the matching trousers are an equally reasonable £30. Suits on the high street never looked so good.

Cheap Monday’s Kostym range

By admin on April 1st, 2008

Cheap Monday look set to keep on branching out with their KOSTYM
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.

After H&M’s buyout of the company it’s interesting to see the brand move into suits. Topman are pretty much the only company specializing in tight suits and it’ll be interesting to see if H&M start stocking Cheap Monday in a select few of their outlets in order to compete. If you can’t wait that long you can order some of the Kostym range from Alter.

Driesvan_suit_sale_2

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.

The dark grey colouring allows it to be
worn in a casual manner with a pair of Nanny states if need be, whilst still
being smart enough to wear to the office. Available from Browns, the sale cost is £285, down
£280 from £565.

David Beckham dons slim fitting suit

By Isabelle on January 8th, 2008

David Beckham’s outfit leaves a lot more to the imagination than his
recent underwear ad for Armani
and I must say I quite like this look.
It’s very a formal outfit but the fitted proportions make it more
wearable and I love the silhouette it creates.

Some of my Shiny
colleagues were shocked by the tightness of the kecks but they’re so
well cut he can get away with it. His shirt sleeve garters are a nice detail and I love the high-cut waistcoat. It’s just a shame I can’t heap any praise on his wife’s ‘highlighter pen’ outfit. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge picture.
