For a long time the men’s clothing market gravitated around the two basic colors of the sartorial canon: blue and gray. And this is still today the dress in its most traditional and versatile form. But it can often be boring too. There are situations where wearing a blue suit can be functional and important. But we may also have the desire to convey our personality through a dress.
One of the alternatives we can imagine is to wear a colorful suit or a suit with patterns. In addition to being trendy, these suits open the way to a spectrum of sartorial shades that certainly can satisfy the most varied taste and the way of being , but that cannot always be particularly practical. It’s not necessary to parade on the catwalks or red carpets to wear it, but it can be useful for informal appointments or simply to revive our wardrobe.
The alternative: a checked suit
In general, few things promise to empower tailored clothing like a cheked suit. Whether it’s a tartan or a Prince of Wales, the all-over pattern is a surefire way to stand out. To be more formal, we can choose patterns with thinner lines and tonal colors, but if we want to bring out the look as a whole, the most important thing could be to use brighter colors.
The men’s suit that I wear in this post from the COLLUSION brand is part of a coordinated set from light fabric with a bright blue and green checked pattern, whose trousers have a drawstring waist and a comfortable fit and an oversized blazer single-breasted model with padded shoulder straps, peak lapel, two-button closure and a large and comfortable model.
