Skinny suits are the most modern of fittings and perfect for anyone looking for a slimmer silhouette. Just make sure it's not too tight in the chest for your build.

Take your black skinny suit, ditch the tie and opt for a printed shirt. Keep the look relaxed and add a vest underneath. Finish off with classic Chelsea boots for a rock-ready look, ideal for a night on the town.

relaxed and versatile

Slim suits are a great option for giving a more bespoke appearance in your tailoring. By being a little more fitted than a classic suit, slim suits can also offer a more streamlined finish.

Don't be afraid to keep your tie off but tuck in the shirt to keep it a little more formal. If you really want to modernise your look, unbutton the top two buttons on your shirt and throw on a pair of clean white trainers.


For a classic finish, stick to the regular fitting suit. The only thing to be careful of here is excess bagging where the trouser meets your shoes.

Keep it all traditional if you're heading to the office and match your suit with an appropriate tie, some classic formal shoes and a simple
non-printed shirt.


Once you've decided on your suit colour, it's time to match your shirt properly. This guide will show you how to do it with ease.


The rules for tailoring in the 21st Century are becoming more and more relaxed. Get yourself a tailored bomber and match it with a smart roll neck and some cropped trousers.

This is perfect for smart events that aren't strict on their dress code and nails the modern aesthetic perfectly.
