LONG LIVE THE CLASSICS!
The Suitably brand is, and always has been about, the conversation between the new and the old. The Hampshire is a perfect example of this.
When Suitably started, we had a few friends that helped us along the way. The Hampshire iconifies one of these supporters who loved our style and message. He wanted a suit that would iconify his home ground that he would also be able to wear on the daily. Cue the Hampshire.
The Hampshire is unapologetically traditional. With a nod to classic style cues and generally delivered in a traditional English cut, The Hampshire is designed for the gentleman who wants to be loud (But in a way that is ever so polite). This multipurpose suit can be dressed up or down depending on the situation. The lighter accents tend toward the summer months however, this can be worn on any occasions.
Lighter colours work best to ensure the traditionalistic aesthetic in play. Stick with white or light colours such as fuschia or baby blue. Avoid darker colours and heavy patterns. Neither of these will work with the aesthetics in mind.
RECOMMENDATIONS: If you’re unsure stick with a white shirt. Failing that, lighter colours are your friends.
Don’t be afraid to go all out in this department. At the Suitably office, we’re quite partial to Paisley or floral print ties with this particular suit, however, most colours and patterns that stand our tend to work with these threads.
Darker browns and tan is definitely the order of the day with The Hampshire. Blacks come off too austere and anything light will ultimately look funny in contrast. Brogues look great in a casual situation however if you are in a formal situation, stick with some clean oxfords to help sharpen your look and keep the lines clean.
Whilst the Hampshire tends to lend itself to the summer months, its design allows for all year round dapperness. Follow up with appropriate trimmings and you’ll be the best dressed in any situation.
Easy to look after with unparalleled accessibility. This suit will definitely be a mainstay in your closet that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
