Bored of your suits? Here is how to style them

Learn how to give your suit extra flair with bespoke tailoring house Knights & Lords

Bored of your suits? Here is how to style them
Men have long suffered limited style options when it comes to suits. Thanks to bespoke tailoring, that is no longer an issue. We speak to UAE bespoke tailoring house Knights&Lords to find out how to style a suit:

Bored of your suits? Here is how to style them
1. Combine classic with modern:

\nOpt for a classic double-breasted jacket with light weight fabric and turn up the bottoms of your trousers for a modern look. Pair that with slip-on shoes.

2. Colour:

\nChoose suit jackets in vibrant colours like pink or lime green, but choose a patterned or textured fabric like mid-sized window pane chequered fabrics to keep a masculine look.

3. Fit and cut:

\nTry a shorter double-breasted suit with a drape cut or try a deconstructed suit with semi lining for less formal occasions.

4. Customisations:

\nChoose a contrasting lining colour in your front breast pocket to have it rolled out as a pocket square as an option or have the first button-hole on your sleeve in a different colour complementary to your lining colour.

5. Accessories:

\nMatch your ties and bow ties to your pocket square and fold your square in a way that attracts attention, like a rose fold. You can also try a flamboyant pair of socks or shoe laces that match the shade to your pocket square. Top that off with a hat for extra flair.
