A GENTLEMAN’S SUIT
A GENTLEMAN’S SUIT
A gentleman’s suit is said to be the most masculine outfit of them all. A man can express himself and impress others with his suit! For millions of men across the world the common denominator that identifies them is a suit. It is undisputed: A suit embodies seriousness, respect and awareness for style. And without consciously noticing it, we somehow respect a man in a suit more than would be the case in any other outfit. Perhaps this is because such men appear to be more self-confident. It’s no wonder that serious bankers and lawyers are wearing suits even in the middle of the summer, with outside temperatures of 35 degrees. Of course, a men’s suit is also a sign of adaptability and conservatism and is an essential part of a world which is mainly ruled by men.
About three meters of fabric, some clever unseen internal shaping elements, lining, buttons and several meters of thread are the simple raw materials that are required to produce the jacket and trouser combination that will be seen wherever men gather.
A suit is versatile. When a man wants to look anonymous, he can wear a suit. On every continent, the sober suit is the chosen dress code of presidents and diplomats, business leaders and lawmakers. At its most classic a suit embodies respectability. Yet it also provides effective camouflage.
As the bedrock of a stylish man’s appearance, a suit defines what his shirt and tie, even his shoes will look like. The suit remains the universal choice for those who dress for success.
A suit offers endless stylistic possibilities before we start to factor in the most essential ingredient, the fabric.
TYPES OF FABRIC
Fine wool or heavier wool, cotton, linen, silk, mohair, polyester mixes, velvet, corduroy, stretch fabrics, stripes and checks. Who can dare say that the suit is boring?
A suit remains the ultimate centrepiece of a stylish man’s wardrobe.
