The Summer Chic Suit

Here comes Spring guys time to ditch those wintry browns and dark colours, let in the light and get ready for the Summer, the linen and cotton suit is the look for the spring and summer months, normally in a light stone or medium tan is the best look but if you want a baby egg blue its down to you, a linen suit is often frowned up on as it normally gets wrinkled quick and the wearer ends up like they have slept in the suit, but thanks to modern technology linen Suits are normally mixed with polyester which means the suit now stays sharper longer, linen Suits were originally invented to be worn in warmer climates but never to be worn here in the UK, but as fashion changed so did how people dressed, in the 80s Miami Vice  a cop TV programme hit the screens, one of its main characters James “Sonny” Crockett  played by Don Johnson was famous for wearing stylish cotton Suits, he popularized, if not invented, the “T-shirt under the jacket look,  designers such as Vittorio Ricci, Gianni Versace, and Hugo Boss were consulted in keeping the male leads looking trendy, the show completely changed in how men dressed, and popularized Italian men’s fashion in the United States, pink, blue, green, peach, fuchsia, and other pastel colours became the colour to be seen in, summer style could now be suited but still cool.


Don Johnson as James “Sonny” Crockett

After the 80s and 90s fashion went through many changes again but classics looks never go out of style, welcome to 2015 the linen suit is back in vogue with more vigour and swagger,  but from where in the 80s the suits were more unconstructed & loose-fitting, the Suits of today are more suited and cut in a stylish fit, the colours are not as loud as the eighty’s but still very chic, the look of the suit is of one that screams summer time, you can dress the Suits up with a crisp white shirt & classy tie, for a more casual look you can go for a T-shirt in a pastel colour and some stylish loafers, don’t for get the shades and a dapper pocket square.
