We’ll admit it, suits aren’t for everybody - but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not for you. Tailoring has had a serious image overhaul, moving away from its dreary officewear reputation (you know, the badly fitting dark grey polyester types we’re talking about) to become a any day, anywhere menswear essential.
For real, it’s even taking over streetwear as the runway trend to know for SS19 with even brands formerly championing the sports look now favouring refined cuts and silhouettes - and it’s not just Saville Row styling either. For spring and summer, suiting has loosened its collar (and, in some instances, gotten rid it of it all together) and gone expected with fresh colour, comfortable retro fits and modern styling. Some designers even ditched the shirt underneath, implying a suit was literally the only thing to be seen in this season. Thanks to brands like ASOS, the men’s modern suit trend is something we can achieve away from the runway too.
From their own direction ASOS Design offering to contemporary tailoring brands such as Twisted Tailor alongside the classics, they’re our go-to for tailoring you’d want to wear both on and off of the daily commute. Looking to fix up for the season ahead and give mens suiting a try for summer? Here’s four ways to smarten up your steez right now.
ASOS Are The Best Place For Men’s Suits On The High Street
Affordable, trend-led and a far cry from the stuffy officewear of yore, ASOS are making the case for spring tailoring right now
1. Inject Some Colour
With the weather warming up (please last), we’re already getting a sweet taste of spring. And what says spring like a bold burst of colour to signal the end of a cruddy winter? We’re looking to light spring greens, paired with box-fresh white trainers. It’s not for shrinking violets, but who wants to be one of those anyway? With pinks, reds, blues and more, there's no escaping that ASOS have the best colourful mens suits, hands down.
2. Act Your Beige
A great way to make a suit feel more relaxed is to steer clear of black-tie and sterile grey. For a look that’s smart without feeling stuffy, you can't go wrong with a rich neutral palette. Gatsby inspired biscuit, camel, stone – whether solid colour or flecked with checks – is especially revitalising. Think of it as your favourite men's camel coat, but for now. Keep it traditional with a brown oxford shoe or switch out to Converse hi-tops or leather sneaks for something a bit more caj.
3. Perfect Your Pinstripe
If you find some of this season’s designer runway prints a little clownish, look to classic prints that have been revitalised for now like a modern stripe to give yourself a point of difference. We love the trend for wider pinstripes - is this particular green number the best men's pinstripe suit on the high street? You'd be hard-pressed to find a worth competitor.
