Men's Suit Details: Do's & Don't's

Tracy Xavier

Just my take on pocket squares, lapel pins, ties & tie bars

Fashion forward merlot suit with floral lapel pin and poof fold pocket square. Beautiful colors that compliment each other, formal slant with lapel detail, lends itself to a poof pocket square style.

Tie Bar

Nice choice on the clean line, modern tie bar. Pocket square color choice is good but a straight edge would have been a more modern look.

Tie & pocket square match up

The blue tones in the pocket square and tie are not from the same blue family, and the flouncy pocket square is a bit much and looks messy.

Two tone, suit & tie

Cool green suit with a same cool feel pop of color tie.

Thin ties are more flattering than wide on shorter men

Color scheme good, tie choice bad. Thick woven ties that are wide do not work and the length is too short. It should touch your belt buckle.

Without a tie, just an open collar shirt and suit. Informal cotton straight edge pocket square works.

Summer light suits

With light colored suits, a subtle pocket square is a good choice, having interesting details, draws in the eye.

Don’t shy away from colors & prints

Especially if you are going with a solid color suit….go for it.

5 Ways to Channel Lauren Bacall’s Unforgettable, All-American Style

Tracy Xavier

Great article from Vogue

Certainly the crisp white shirt had one of its finest moments ever when Bacall wore it with a circle skirt in Key Largo. And who else but she could have given the beret an American accent, redefining it with a houndstooth suit in The Big Sleep? There was, alas, only one Lauren Bacall, but here are five ways to channel her unforgettable style.

I love fashion illustration, such an artistic way to view a bit of history. Some of our favorite names in the accessories industry are: Hickok, Anson, Swank and Wembley. If you are a fan of the retro narrow tie like Shaun Evans from Endeavour, hunt for the Wembley tie.

South China Morning Post: Fashion & Beauty

Meet Esther Quek, Dubai’s most stylish girl-about-town – who is actually from Singapore

With her bleached blond pixie cut and bold style sense, fashion maven Esther Quek – the editor of CitizenK Arabia – is shaking up the style scene in Dubai and beyond, but still dreams of eating wanton mee in her home country.

Much like the identity of the quarterly magazine she edits, Quek’s style is contrarian, assured and unshrinking. With her sharply tailored suits, fearless styling and gravity-defying platinum locks, she’s a paparazzi’s dream and an endless source of inspiration to her legion of Instagram followers.

A fearless lady, Esther Quek is the distinguished group fashion and beauty director of luxury publications in the Middle East, namely The RakeRevolution and contributes frequently to Condé Nast Traveller. Hailing from Singapore, this veteran stylist and journalist has immersed herself in fashion and publishing for nearly a decade. Esther is a regular on the international fashion circuit, and has been heralded as one of the influential style icons working in fashion today. Her sense of style and undeniable charm has seen her grace the pages of many fashion titles including Vogue and Style.com.   Her illustrious career has flourished as she has continually proven herself to be an integral part in shaping fashion and the images of her global followers. As well as a style expert in the realms of fashion, beauty and lifestyle, Esther is respected for her creative work and comprehensive knowledge of the luxury world. After taking the bold step to move to Dubai, she makes her exceptional taste and expertise accessible to her growing audience. When she's not in the front row at fashion shows, Esther likes to travel to beach resorts, hunt for vintage dresses and watches, or find tailors who can create a perfect suit.

Legal attire: the confidence of the suit

Tracy Xavier

While researching fashion in the professional world of attorneys, I ran across this article that really expressed our views on the subject. Inside the wardrobe of legal drama Suits

Suits1.jpg

Jolie sources much of the cast’s wardrobe from vintage and department stores in Toronto, where Suits is filmed, and makes trips to New York and Los Angeles, visiting consignment stores for one-off pieces and details like ties, cufflinks, collars or shoes that make the characters feel invested, she says. “It’s harder and harder to find really great pieces but I scour those stores all the time to see what’s different, to see what I’ve missed.”

 

Lawyer fashion evolves to reflect personality and tradition

For the women on Suits, Andreatta says she uses a lot of consignments. “The clothes are recycled, which is wonderful, and they’re insanely good quality. I find Dior, Chanel—and I use a lot of it—but it’s consignment.”

Andreatta suggests scouring vintage stores and online sites to add personality and to find designer pieces at a fraction of the cost. “Never be afraid of tailoring: Don’t be afraid to take it in and cut it up. If a jacket is too long, don’t be afraid to cut 5 inches out of it. Or you could cut a lapel down” to update a look and fit, she says.

Andreatta began her career styling attorneys more than 20 years ago, when she and a friend would take racks of clothes into law firms and talent agencies. She says times have changed—the palette has expanded, allowing lawyers more license to inject fun elements into their wardrobes.

“Women lawyers I meet want to wear the items from Suits,” Andreatta says. “You want to look beautiful but not provocative. Even seven years ago, women were dressing to fit in, to challenge men—and that was their way to compete with their colleagues. Now, it’s stronger and more to their benefit to just be women.”

Female attorneys aren’t the only ones who can find areas of self-expression through fashion. On Suits, Andreatta allows the personality of the male characters to shine through in a variety of ways. She adds romanticism with a decorative pocket square; others are dressed in vintage ties or bespoke, Savile Row-style suits.

How buying vintage and gently used can save you big bucks and up your style game

Tracy Xavier

If you are the type of person that has honed in on your personal style, you should seriously consider stocking your accessories wardrobe with vintage or gently used items. When you shop on line at the big box stores, you are limiting your style options. Their focus is on the new trends only. If you have a good sense of what style you like and look good in, there is no better option for you than vintage as well as gently used. Not only does it lend itself to helping you achieve your personal style but you can save money while doing your part to recycle.

Below are a few examples from our collections from our Men's Etsy store: Modern Renaissance Man and Mr & Mrs Renaissance store.
