The classic navy suit. Your starting point in the sartorial world.
There’s a saying. “A man only needs at least three good suits. One in charcoal, one in black and one in navy”. There is some very sound logic to this saying and as such, if you’re just starting your menswear journey, a good navy suit is one of the best first moves you can make.
Stylish, versatile, and flattering. A navy suit is professional without being severe. This model features a traditional Navy fabric with a smart texture that helps catch the light. Works well in the office, formal occasions, and acceptable in almost any occasion that requires a suit. If you don’t have, or intend to build out your menswear wardrobe, this is an essential that will treat you well for years.
Infinitely versatile. The traditional pairing choices for a navy suit is white, light blues and pinks (in that order) however beige, mint and lilac are also creative shirt choices that can help to move your style forward. When thinking about shirts, think about the image that you’re trying to present and use that as the basis. We recommend that you keep your patterns subtle and we’re big fans of micro checks and stripes to help keep things streamlined
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.
Traditionally, black shoes were seen as the only option but in modern day, brown is an acceptable swap-in. Ensure that if you go with brown that you keep it quite dark so as to match the formal nature of the cloth.
This suit will work in almost any occasion that a suit would be required. Be warned however that as a standard suit colour, you may find yourself getting a bit lost in the crowd (that may not be a bad thing in some instances). If you want to increase the formality factor but with the same versatility, consider our charcoal option as your next step up in formality. Whilst not ideal, this option is dark enough to be an acceptable option in sombre events such as funerals.
