One Grey Suit = Three Different Looks


When it comes to the grey suit people don’t exploit it to its full value, you need to look at it as being a desirable piece, rather than merely a functional suit. the way that you do this is first invest into a good suit with a good fit, then using key piece`s from your wardrobe, a grey suit can be chic with bags of panache if you get the style right.

Now the grey suit has been around over 200 years, grey suits used to be used for morning suits, these days we don`t see enough people exploiting the full value of the suit, the first bit you need to get right is getting the right suit, for get about these super small super slim numbers, fashion changes style does not, invest into a proper two button medium grey suit, not to dark not to light, forget about man-made fibers they make your balls sweat, you want Wool, Mohair, Cashmere, these are natural fibers that keep you warm in winter cool in summer, also due to their waxy fibers they are very water absorbent.

Sourcing your suit can be expensive & time-consuming, two tips scour the sales & company’s discount sites, if you’re not sure about your size they don’t charge in shops for trying on suit`s, go in find your size & fit take a picture on your camera phone of the label, then hit the internet or sales stores.

 How a suit fits is top priority, there are some simple key rules when buying a ready-made suit or off the peg to get a proper fit follow these rules.

1. Shoulders’ Because this is where the suit hangs, from the fit should sit on the shoulders, if there is any hunching it is to tight or to big.

2. Jacket closure’ if you get the shoulders right the jacket should close right, if you close the jacket and the front pulls on the button causing a big X on the front it’s too tight, if the lapels hang forward its to big.

3. Jacket sleeve’ When you put your jacket over your shirt sleeve ,there should be a half an inch between the shirt cuff and blazer sleeve, basically only 5 inches of cuff should be showing.

4. Jacket collar’ very easy to spot there will be a gap at the back of the collar, if it’s to big if it’s to small.

5. Jacket Length very simple stand tall put your arms down to the side, if the jackets below the hand its to long above to short.

6. The seat’ is your bum area, your trousers should just hang again if very loose to big too much hunching means to small.

7. Trouser break’ where your trouser end it is called the break, a proper fit will result in a simple dimple at the bottom, no dimple to short more than one dimple to long.

So are waistcoat/vest really stylish and practical, “YES”, look around & when I say look around, l mean read about men’s fashion on-line, read the latest fashion magazines there are thousands of articles & pictures to whet your appetite,  so who is wearing the waistcoat /vest & getting noticed for their style, first up is Mr Olly Murs he’s been voted by GQ as one of the best dressed men in the UK, his style comes from the high street, he love’s Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, Top man all iconic British brands, what this means to you as a savvy shopper ,you can get the same look at affordable prices, Olly’s style normally is a classic granddad shirt, Stunning waistcoat/vest then very tight trousers. He is a very stylish man, he does not follow any brand`s or style`s 70% of clothes he buys come from the high street, he will buy a certain item  then wear it in his own style.

Another lover of the waistcoat / vest is our Gary Barlow of Take That, another winner of GQ magazine best dressed man, he has a more tailored style than Olly Murs, he love’s tweed & check designs etc, but Gary ‘ s style again does not come at a cost.

The Classic Gent`s Wool Suit


When you come to buy your first suit it will be one of the biggest decisions you will make, it could be because you’re getting married or you are about to start a new job, or you just need one for future occasions.

Wool has been used for Suits since the 1600’s, we know this because people kept a diary. Suits them self’s have not changed much just the design & the cut its still two garments made from the same material.

So Why Wool

I bet you want to know why l am banging on about wool. Well first it’s not man-made so you wont sweat your nuts off in the summer or freeze in the winter. Because wool is breathable material it circulates air so it keeps you cool in summer & warm in winter. If your caught out in the rain wool can hold 20% moisture due to its waxy fibers so it’s also water proof to a certain degree. Also if you were out on the town partying in a cheap suit & some body chucked sambuca all over you then set you on fire it would be good night Vienna for you, but a wool suit would just smolder.

Wool fabrics are made from worsted wool or woolen yarns so they can be blended with cotton or silk even cashmere also horrible man-made fibers. there are many different weaves, there is Hounds tooth a twill-weave with light & dark threads or Barley corn kind of blurry corn triangles twill-weave, my favorite is herringbone it’s a twill-weave with threads running alternately to the left, but the best is the pinstripe weave mostly seen in grey or navy blue, there are many more but the most common is called Gabardine, it’s a twill rib it comes in solid colors also very water-resistant too.

The Fit

How a suit fits is top priority, for get about super skinny super short, your buying a 100% pure wool suit, may be it’s not the latest fashion, l know we all want to look good, but a wool suit could last you 10 years or more, are you going to be super skinny in 10 years ?. Tailors don’t talk about of style or fit but of ‘LINE’ & OF ‘BALANCE’ which means the hang of jacket. Because of mass manufacturing & advertising of designer labels, people buy into what they see, but you should bear in mind, you are not some Italian love God called Ghugie Ghugie who looks good in every thing that appears in magazines. You are you so when your investing into a suit buy one that fits you properly. There are some simple key rules when buying a ready-made suit or off the peg to get a proper fit follow these rules.

1. Shoulders’ Because this is where the suit hangs, from the fit should sit on the shoulders if there is any hunching it is to tight or to big.

2. Jacket closure’ if you get the shoulders write the jacket should close writ, if you close the jacket and the front pulls on the button causing a big X on the front it’s too tight, if the lapels hang forward its to big

3. Jacket sleeve’ When you put your jacket over your shirt sleeve ,there should be a half an inch between the shirt cuff and blazer sleeve, basically only 5 inches of cuff should be showing.

4. Jacket collar’ very easy to spot there will be a gap at the back of the collar, if it’s to big if it’s to small.

5. Jacket Length very simple stand tall put your arms down to the side, if the jackets below the hand its to long above to short.

6. The seat’ is your bum area, your trousers should just hang again if very loose to big too much hunching means to small.

7. Trouser break’ where your trouser end it is called the break, a proper fit will result in a simple dimple at the bottom, no dimple to short more than one dimple to long.

The Look

Lapels go for a notch lapel its simple but classic, l always advise go for a two button jacket. remember were not going hunting, so no patch pockets go for slanted or straight pockets with flaps, twin vents are normally for blazers & a double vent is for suits it’s really up to you, the trousers should be a flat front keep it streamlined and the bottom of your trousers should be plain no turn ups etc.

The Color

Now we’ve talked about the different weaves that wool can come in, but the color of a suit is very important the rule is keep it simple, think where are you going to be wearing the suit, if don’t work in the dig city stay away from pinstripe, and don’t go for silly electric blues and purples you’re not a pimp, to me you have two choices go for a morning grey & navy blue they will look good at work a wedding or an evening out, l know you can have black but we wear black at sad times and charcoal is for accounts & nasty bankers & MP’s.

So get on the net hit the streets and source out your pure wool suit.

This the wool trademark

This is the wool trademark

http://www.wool.com

When you are looking for your suit look for the Wool mark, like the one above this it will be found on the label in the inside of the jacket, if it does not have one simply moonwalk out of there fast.

Press a wool only with steam or a damp cloth

Press a wool suit only with steam or a damp cloth

Takeing care of your suit

Wool suits like any thing get dirty & will need cleaning at some point, but wool does not like heat as it breaks down the fibers, so only clean your suit twice a year this is done by dry cleaning don’t be a skin flint and use a coined operated machine go to a proper professional dry cleaners. Your suit will need pressing from time to time, never put a hot iron on the wool hang the suit up & steam it so the creases drop out, or get a damp tea towel put it over the suit then light press with the iron. When you’re not using your suit stick it in a suit bag keeps Hungary moths away, and just give it a good brush before & after you have used it.

I hope this topic has opened your eyes & your wallet not every one is rich in today’s society there is a to much of a throw away attitude because things are so cheap but cheap does not last quality does save your money invest wisely and you will have a wardrobe fit for any occasion for a long time to come.

My favourite blazers are made from tweed, its comes from Scotland & Ireland, lt was made by local people in their homes, tweed is a multicoloured carded yarn and twill construction you could call it a stubby coarse woollen cloth, the local used it for years to keep warm before the land & gentry noticed its great quality’s, a tweed blazer is not just one colour you will have hints of green & purple, so it will give your blazer a unique look, but most of all it will last you a life time.

Wool blazers are in tune with city folk, wool is great for Warmth it insulates protecting the user against heat as well as cold, it is water absorbent soaking up perspiration and circulating it back into the environment & it gets its water-resistant from its waxy fibre-coating. It is also hard to set alight & merely smoulder, it’s very hard-wearing responds well to steam irons, so if your after a year all-rounder a wool blazer is the one to choose.

Navy blue cashmere blazer
