Back To Business: Classic Suit Style

August 22nd, 2016

Let’s get down to business with the classic and unstoppable blue suit

There’s nothing like a classic blue suit. But you already know that.

Here’s an HSS-approved, office-ready look for the end of summer and into early fall.

Your shirt collar will always set the tone of your look. A forward point collar is perhaps the most common, though it can be made a bit more interesting via a collar pin. A spread collar is a little more daring, though still on the conservative side. And a cutaway collar, like the one worn here, is the most style-forward.

One question we get all the time is what color tie to wear with a blue suit. One of the best things about a blue suit is that it will accept just about any color tie – it’s very much a blank canvas. So the tie you choose depends a lot on the occasion.

For a business look, a navy tie with an unassuming pattern is a good choice. Going monochromatic always projects confidence.

Choose your shoes as much for the situation/occasion as your shirt collar. A cutaway collar always sends off some Italian vibes, so what better to match that than a pair of double monk straps?

Thanks, as always, for reading.
