Somehow it’s June already (where has this year gone?!) and the wedding season is well and truly underway. For our Budget to Flush offering this week we thought we’d lend a hand to the men, and look at the ever-sharp 3 piece suit from High Street winners, to William Hunt Savile Row’s beautifully fine tailoring. With the power to make every man look accomplished, confident, modern and perfectly polished, a suit is something to consider, take your time in choosing. In the same way we speak of body shapes for women here at Style ME, the same goes for all men’s physiques. With our male clients, sussing out their shape and how they tend to dress it is still the first thing we do. Broader shoulders, softer bellies, thick legs, narrow waists…Not every body is the same. A single breasted, thin-lapelled jacket for example, slims wider chests, lengthens shorter torsos and highlights the waists of balanced bodies, whereas double breasted, heavily detailed or textured pieces add shape and weight to slighter top halves and slim, angular physiques.
Topman Luz “Watts” 3 Piece Suit – Perfect for a longer, leaner frame and best suited to Rectangular* or Trapezoid* shapes, this new navy 3 piece from Topman is a High Street steal, with sleek, slim pleated pants, a soft-to-the-touch finish and a figure-fitting cut. Sharp and contemporary, it’s an affordable, quality suit which can be worn altogether or as separate pieces for all occasions. Made from a structured wool and mohair mix, with a cool jacquard lining, it’s luxury on a budget.
REISS Positano Three-Piece One Button Suit – Our go-to for guaranteed sartorial brilliance, REISS are consistently great at catering for all types of male body shapes with their vast range of classic to totally trend-led pieces. Light baby blue tones, muted grey textured checks and soft summer linens make for a collection fit for all types and tastes. The classic one-buttoned Positano suit is one of the best mid-price off-the-peg sets we’ve seen, sporting a half-lined structured fit, high peaked lapels, a slim, sharp cut and narrow pleated bottoms. Contemporary yet timeless, add a crisp-collared white shirt, colourful tie and a playfully printed pocket square to finish.
William Hunt Savile Row Connery Charcoal Three Piece Suit – The suit of dreams, this William Hunt Three Piece is the epitome of expert, bespoke tailoring. Known for their ability to make the wearer feel a svelte 7 pounds lighter and 2 inches taller, each beautifully designed suit sports detailing of the accutest kind, flashes of bold, glamorous colour and masculine, body-conscious cuts. Flattering all body types, from the rounded Oval* to angular Rectangles*, the Connery’s fitted waistcoat with it’s silky paisley printed back slims and narrows thicker waists, whilst the intricate, busy detailing distracts the eye from thinner frames and sloping shoulders.
*To learn about male body shapes and how to dress them, from everyday jeans and tees to suits, shoes and shirts, come along to our next Men’s Styling Course this Friday 14th June.
