You’re here to take names and everyone in the room knows it.
With an aggressive thin pinstripe that throws back to the 20s and 30s, the assassin is a serious suit for when you need people to know that you mean business. The extremely dark charcoal combined with the contrasting white buttons and stripe help to create a monochromatic look that stands as assertive, aggressive, and elegant. Whether you need to make your point in the boardroom or, you need to let people know that you’re at the top of the food chain, The Assassin is one that will make sure that you’re taken seriously when it’s most needed.
Sticking to a monochromatic colour scheme is the best way to make this one stand out. That is to say, using a white shirt in order to make the high contrast pinstripe really pop is ideal. Failing this, going the other way and electing for a “blackout” look with a black or dark grey suit can also be effective, albeit quite dark in nature.
Similar to the shirt, the tie should also be quite dark in order to assist with the chroma of the outfit. This can be achieved with something in black, or, something in a darker shade. If you are wanting to use any colour in the outfit, you would be better off doing that in the tie so if you are planning on lighting this one up, That would be your best option.
This suit would only work with black shoes. Aim for something with a higher than normal formality such as an oxford, or double monk strap.
This is an intimidating choice for someone that wants to stand out. Be aware that the assertive nature of this suit may not be appropriate for all occasions and isn’t for everyone.
