Show them you mean business (But are also not against a boozy lunch)
The Grid embodies the classic Australian business suit for the modern-day. With an aesthetically pleasing blue with a complimenting check design, the grid provides structure and sophistication to your look. Great dressed up with a pocket square and tie in the formal office setting, or dressed down with an open neck on the casual moments. If it tickles your fancy as well, you can also dress this up with the right accessories in order to make it work in more formal situations.
See that client, seal the deal, then ditch the tie and grab a beer as you wind down at that one rooftop bar that you like on a late Friday afternoon. The grid will work in any situation that you need it to.
There’s not a lot that won’t work well with this piece. Pick something that you will find easy to pair with your tie as combinations of this nature will be important. Remember that the occasion that this is being worn in will also dictate your combinations. The grid has a lot of texture in it already so if you’re planning on wearing this through during the work week, perhaps stick with solid colours as opposed to something too patterned or heavy to make sure that you’re not overdoing it.
Tie choices heavily depend on your shirt, however, there are some combinations that definitely stand out. Blue suits require a bit of thought when picking a tie. Standard blue on blue combinations look great however ensure that the balance is just right (Don’t go too bright or dark with either colour. Try to keep them in the same colour space). If you need help with this, get in touch with our staff and we’ll be happy to provide advice.
Can be worn with both brown and black shoes. Remember that black shoes will typically be seen as more formal. If you’re trying to tone down your formality, or come across as a little warmer, a chesnut or burgundy would be an excellent choice.
Whilst we believe that this is mostly a business-focused choice, this garment is one that has the ability to be dressed up to match the occasion. The lighter blue tends to lend itself to the warmer months however, it would not be entirely out of place in autumn or winter.
