Everyman’s wardrobe should include one great navy suit. It should be considered an “investment” depending on the individual budget and tailored to perfection in a polished “all-season” fabrication. But lets face it, the daily dressing needs of the 21st century male have shifted and most of us are no longer required to wear suits on a regular basis.
Though not needing to wear a suit should not deter you from purchasing a great suit (or several).The secret is all in how you use your suit(s) to help supplement and build your current wardrobe. The Modern Dandy took a classic 2 button navy suit and was able to create 5 distinct looks appropriate for a variety of end uses.
Dandy Tip: When wearing your suit as it was intended it’s best to keep the rest of your choices classic and refined. Showing restraint will pay homage to the fabric and fit of your suit.
Dandy Tip: By simply changing the blazer and tie from the previous image, this outfit quickly and effortlessly transforms from office wear to party wear. Using a Navy bow-tie creates a color connection with the pants and reinforces uniformity which is crucial in an evening look. The unique pocket square adds a sophisticated conversation starter.
Dandy Tip: Don’t be afraid of a casual fabric like chambray for the office. Pairing it with your suiting pants and a textured cashmere sweater helps create balance between relaxed and refined.
Dandy Tip: Using the navy suiting blazer adds sophistication to the coolness factor of this plaid button down and slim fit pant…Sophisticated AND Cool?Pretty much two great attributes to show off on any date.
Dandy Tip: Don’t be afraid of shorts paired with your blazer. Keeping the short tailored and above the knee is essential to making this look seem effortless.
