Mixing it Up: Mens Suits

0 Comment

It’s no secret that we love suits. Men’s Suits make getting dressed simple, instantly transforming you from the everyday guy to the dapper gentleman. We know all there is to know when it comes to the sharpest styles and must have trends. When it comes to dapper dressing for Autumn/Winter mixing it up is the way forward.

The classic Three Piece Suit is still our suit of choice to achieve the ultimate tailored, sophisticated look but this season we’re adding a bit of personality by switching up the must have waistcoat for mix-match style at its best.

Playing it safe…

Not one to make any ‘out there’ style choices? Not a problem this trend can still work for you. One of our favourite mix-match looks is teaming a simple grey waistcoat with your go to Black Suit. We’ve teamed our Lambretta Slim Fit Black Suit with a simple plain Grey Slim Fit Waistcoat to add a touch of individuality.


Daringly Dapper…

Feeling a little more daring? Then you’ll love our new Harry Brown Slim Fit Charcoal Grey Checked Men’s Suit. The charcoal check will add some flare, add a plain waistcoat to create the mix-match look without adding too many clashing patterns or prints. Instant Dapper Cool.


A suit not for you?

The trend still can be. If you favour a more casual approach then why not apply the mix-match look to your Blazer. Why not opt for a heritage look and team with an understated navy waistcoat for a casual style that will take you effortlessly from business to evening. Our Blazer of choice for this more casual look is our Broadstone Bros Brown Herringbone Check Tailored Fit Blazer.


Some rules to follow when deciding on a men’s suit…

Regardless of how you achieve your mix and match look this Autumn/Winter there are some key rules that still have to be taken into account:

– Always find the right fit! No matter how you choose to mix and match your look, fit is paramount. An ill-fitting suit or blazer will immediately ruin any attempt at dapper style. Here at Slaters we can help you with fit with our FREE alterations service available in all of our stores nationwide.

– Consider your materials. When mixing and matching it is always good to try and achieve a like for like. While different textures work to create an individual and interesting style, be mindful of the overall look you are trying to achieve.
