In the past a bespoke suit was considered high-end. Today, it’s a new cult of our time. A man’s best business card is a style that represents his personality. And a bespoke suit is the best way to look impeccable in every occasion of your life. You can’t judge a book by its cover, but it’s also true that your outfit tells a lot about who you are and it’s essential for your business.
A bespoke suit expresses your personality and talks about your style, helping you to succeed in your job. The most beloved suits in business are the double-breasted a the two-button, in blue or dark gray, even if in Italy and Europe men use to wear also the brown color. Despite of the Anglo-Saxon saying “no brown in town”! Black is another story, because it is considered too strict and rigid for business.
As always, details and accessories complete the suit and make it unique: ties, pocket squares, watches, pins tell so much about who we are and what we want. For these reasons is important to have at least one bespoke suit in your wardrobe. Because of comfort and fit, a tailored bespoke suit is invaluable.
