Guide On Purchasing Men's Suit
Summary: It can oftentimes be extremely difficult to find the perfect suit for your special occasion. Francis O’Callaghan explains from 10 + years of experience how to find yourself the best possible suit.

To become a hitman is something we generally reserve for films such as James Bond, The godfather, and Pulp Fiction. The nature of the hitman is to be unassuming while having an air of authority about you. To blend in with the background but when you step out-out into the foreground you garnish respect and stop people, well, dead. You get what I mean. And what man doesn’t want to leave an impression like that?

In the article below you’ll find the rules for purchasing a suit and wearing it in a killer way, literally! There is constantly the risk of following the trends that retailers encourage you to buy into. But any good hitman knows trends aren’t for him. The ultimate hitman requires a suit that maintains its timeless elegance no matter what the situation is. Perfectly fitted – not too short or tight – he needs space to maneuver. With all his of movements, whether travelling the length and breadth of the country or being a man about town, tracking his targets, he needs a suit that remains fresh looking. Any suiting with a non-crease quality is perfect.

When researching for this article I stumbled upon the rather fitting comparison between purchasing a men’s suit and the role of a hitman. Both try to be slick while maintaining the approachability which is essential for the likes of 007. 007 ensures that he doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb, he tries to maintain a level of class without drawing the attention that would be associated with bright, flashy and swag attire. It is a skill in itself to find the perfect combination between class and quality in a men’s suit. I am going to talk you through an experts guide to buying a men’s suit.

Suit Colours

When buying an entry level suit, always aim for dark and navy charcoals but never black. Black is predominantly associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery. A mysterious color associated with fear and the unknown (like black holes). Usually has a negative connotation (blacklist, black humor, ‘black death’). Denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color.

Bear in mind that the color will generally be the foundation of your suit wardrobe as you open up to different fabrics, prints, and fashionable cuts. If you’re looking for a suit to wear to an event, occasion, or for generally professional purposes it is generally considered most appropriate to go for a relatively neutral color which has no negative connotations associated with it.

The best color for suits

During this piece, I am going to talk through the most versatile and flexible suit color so that it is easiest for every man with every budget to prioritize. These are the most popular colours based on the 10+ years of experience that I, personally have had in the men’s formal wear industry.

Without further ado, let’s jump into it! Have a watch of the video below courtesy of Real Men Style.

9 Suit Colors men should consider

The number one best color

  1. Navy Blue Men’s Suit

All stores specializing in men’s suits will carry navy-blue colored suits.

Navy suits are perfect for the guy who wants to fit in, he wants to be recognized not for what he puts on but for the effort that he puts in.

Another advantage to a navy suit is that if a gentleman wants to get it customized he can include a few fashion forward details because the color is so simple and straightforward.

The cost of suits

Before I Launch into talking about the cost associated with the different models, there are a couple of truths that you need to know about suits. 1) You need at least one. 2) Its going to cost you. Exactly how much it is going to cost is up to you. Thanks to technology, inexpensive labor, and the free market, you can get your hands on a high quality suit for less than €300. There are also suits which you can drop €1000 on, it all depends on your budget.

Importance of the right suit

Your suit/tuxedo could be more influential than you could ever imagine. It could be the suit that helps you to land your first job, which will no doubt turn into a fulfilling career. It could be the suit you decide to wear on perhaps the biggest day of your life (your wedding), which eventually turns into a satisfying marriage. No matter how or why you purchase your suit, it’s usually for a very good reason, so there’s no reason to squander the opportunity without doing the due diligence.

Be sure to watch this space for future updates on the guide to finding the ultimate suit. Please include any comments in the comments area and I will try my best to make sure that I accurately answer all of the questions to the best of my ability.

Fashion Tips For Men To Look Stylish All Summer Long
As a general rule of thumb, women tend to focus on fashion more than men. In fact, most men don’t really pay attention to what they put on in the morning after they roll out of bed. Putting a little bit of time and effort into your appearance, however, can go a long way toward boosting your confidence and helping you get ahead in life. The summer is not long, so we want to give you some advice about stylish looks to wear this season, take your wardrobe to the next level, and get ready because it will go further than just men’s swimwear inside your luggage. Check out the following summer fashion tips for men to get some ideas and inspiration on how to upgrade your look:

1. Invest in a high-end watch

One way to instantly elevate your style is by investing in a watch with a beautiful, classic style. Today, there are a lot of high-tech watches and devices on the market – look no further than Apple watches or Fitbits for examples of wearable technology. Over time, these trends are likely to fade. High-end watches with a sleek, elegant style, however, will remain fashionable forever. It is worth investing in a watch that you can wear for many years to come.

2. Purchase a couple of button-down shirts

Button-down shirts are a great option for the summer. Typically, they are made from lightweight, breathable fabrics. They also fit relatively loosely, allowing the air to flow underneath them. A casual white button-down shirt is a great choice for most summer days. To keep the look from being too formal, leave the collar unbuttoned and roll the sleeves up a little bit. You can pair a shirt like this with everything from jeans to shorts.

Button-down shirts
For the evening, a casual button-down shirt in a classic shade of navy blue is a great option. This can help you stay cool while at the same time allowing you to look your best. If you want to add a little bit more excitement to your look, consider choosing a navy shirt with a pattern. Paisley and polka dots are both great choices.

3. Buy a pair of boat shoes

Flip-flops may be comfortable but they don’t do a lot to elevate your style. At the same time, however, you obviously need to find shoes that will keep your feet cool. This is where boat shoes come into the picture. Not only are these shoes really comfortable to wear but they also are a little bit dressier than flip-flops. They are the perfect choice for casual summer days since they can keep your feet cool and comfortable all day long while at the same time allowing you to look fashionable. Quality leather sandals can also be an option, try Sole Trader for more info on this trend.

T-shirts are the go-to choice for most men – with good reason. They are extremely comfortable to wear. At the same time, however, they are quite lacking from a fashion standpoint. Baggy and shapeless, they tend to leave you looking like you didn’t put much thought into your appearance. One way to get around this problem is by purchasing Henley shirts. At the most basic level, these are simple T-shirts. The primary difference is that they have buttons at the neck. Despite their simple design, they can go a long way toward making you look stylish. As long as they fit well, they can also help make you look more muscular and well-toned.
