2-Second Rule 13 Standout Suits & Sports Jackets that are Sure to Impress

First impressions are everything. Make sure you make the right statement when you walk into a room.

Two seconds… That’s all the time you have to make a first impression

When you’re confident about the way you look, it shows. And few things reveal a man’s self-confidence as surely as a statement suit or jacket. We’ve gathered some examples that go well beyond everyday tailored clothing and dressed them up or down in every conceivable way. Versatility is also a quality of a great suit or jacket, so you can rely on it to work as hard as you do.

Suit Up & Stand Out

A plain knit and chinos become the understated background for a statement jacket. Let the jacket sing solo, taking the coordination in a very sophisticated direction.

Open New Windowpane

How to stand out from the crowd? A jacket patterned with crimson and white windowpanes on a navy background should to the trick. Add a shirt with a check in a much smaller scale and then a tie with diagonal stripes spaced very far apart. It’s a postgraduate lesson in pattern coordination.

Classic Suits, Revisited

With these suits, the fabrics are the story. Canada’s Samuelsohn uses the finest Super 150’s wool from Italy’s Vitale Barberis mill, while Canali’s mid-grey windowpane offers amazing versatility. Looking for something slightly bolder? You can’t go wrong with a masculine yet refined double-breasted suit.

"Some suits simply call out for a shirt and tie! Pink and grey is a classic combination for a gentleman in the summertime."

New Blues for Summer

A blue suit or sports jacket doesn’t take itself too seriously—especially when it comes a notch above navy and mixes in a handsome check. Reach for one this season and wear with confidence.
