What Suits You?

As I take my fashion to new heights, I slowly but surely am transitioning from more of a trendier style to something more traditional and classic. I will admit ripped denim and over sized sweaters are so much easier to put together. Often I found suiting to be boring until I started having fun with the way I would put my outfits together. This particular suit maybe a lot for the “average”  man but hopefully this post inspires some out there to take more a risk with their suiting.
img_3538Typically I  normally do a sports coat and a pair of slacks or denim like the look from my previous post. I chose this suit A.  I am absolutely in love with the color and print and B. to show how this suit (though more out there then the regular suits gentlemen would wear to work) can be done for everyday and while still be taken seriously.img_3543The suit is a deep purplish blue with a burgundy plaid print. I paired it with a burgundy merino wool turtleneck to help make the plaid pattern on the suit to pop and be more noticeable. The thread count is a Super 150 which makes more of a special occasion suit than your everyday.  The higher the thread count the finer the wool! For my shoes I went back to a chocolate brown Chelsea boot. You can also do any loafer of your choice but with it being so cold in my are a boot was the best option. The boots are suede which adds some more texture to the actual outfit itself.img_3539The scarf was a last minute addition because I felt like the look was complete and needed a little more oomph. The scarf has hues of Reds and purples which adds another layer of color. The scarf also helps to make the plaid pattern more noticeable and ties the whole look together. This scarf is light and is a cashmere/wool blend. Making it warm enough to do its job but not heavy for it to layer over top of your suit and under your overcoat.
img_3541The bag that I am carrying is called the Over sized Vendome. It looks is inspired by the Vednome building. The bag itself comes in two smaller sizes which is a handbag for women. But the over sized version can be utilized by  both sexes. This version only comes in two colors the brown that is pictured and a black. Its structure and size make it perfect for a weekend bag and a great holiday present for him/her.
img_3540After shooting this look I feel more inspired to post more suiting looks and to venture out with my style. Keeping you guys more informed on thread counts, what suits are good for everyday and how to add more pizzazz to your works suits.  If you anyone has any questions as to where I got these pieces from and the price leave a comment on this post of write me directly. If there are any gentlemen out there who is having issues deciding how to wear any particular pieces and want me  to create a look and post it  to my blog feel free to reach and let me know! Hope this post served you well the men out there to play more with your suiting.
