For our second instalment of The Suit of the Week, we’re going for something to complement our bold, fuchsia-striped Shirt of the Week from Tuesday.
We’ve chosen a royal blue pinstripe from Holland & Sherry’s Intercity line. The fabric is 370g in weight – very versatile and can be worn most of the year. I love a pinstripe because it immediately shows that the wearer means business. Bob was once a banker in London in a previous career, and the pinstripe suit was de rigeur for the City gent.
It needn’t only be for the bankers, though — why should they exclusively enjoy the pleasure of wearing what I think is one of the smartest styles in classic menswear! And the mid-to-dark blue colour we’ve chosen looks so sharp. Not too dark, not too light, just right!
As ever, it will look very smart in the one- and three-button single-breasted styles that I am partial to, in addition to working very nicely in Max’s signature double-breasted style. Together with our Shirt of the Week, it will make a knockout combination. Conservative and old-school enough because of the pinstripes, but also elegant and assertive with the bold fuchsia stripes. You’re going to love this combination! BTWB/MM/YS
