Tips for Being a Modern Gentleman
Checks, stripes or plain?
When deciding on the patterns of your first suit, plain fabrics would be your best pick. Why? Style starts with simplicity; when a suit is not tight, but well-fitted, also paired with classic details - Even a plain patterned suit is a simple, yet stylish choice for you.
When getting a made-to-measure or a bespoke suit. It is important to avoid rushing in the process; since you will learn more about your own preference for suit-cuts and fabrics over time. Therefore, you are less likely to have buyer's remorse in this case.
Herringbone is also a good choice because it adds playfulness in a plain fabric, yet retains its formality.
Because of the movies "Kingsman: The Secret Service" and "Kingsman: The Golden Circle", Pin-striped suits, especially double-breasted, have became a lot more popular. However, I would recommend saving the Pin-stripes for the more formal occasion; since a Pin-striped suit gives a sense of high formality. Not only that, the suit can only be worn as a full-suit generally and cannot be broken up as separate pieces; which makes it less versatile, unless you have a wide collection of suits.
Many customers seem to like checked patterns, but there are wide varieties of checks to pick from. One of them would be the "Glenurquhart Plaid"; which was created by Edward the VII - hence the name "Price of Wales Check". Another popular choice would be the "Windowpane Checks"; the checks are formed by minimalistic and simple lines, along with ones that are different in size and colour. One can never have enough Windowpane suits because of the versatility that they bring! [GRAND OPEN] 1st Nov 2018
