A great suit is a statement of self-confidence, no matter where it takes you – to a cocktail party, a bar, a friend’s wedding… Who knows, you might even wear it to the office.
Introduced this spring, Canali’s Kei suit has been exceptionally well received. Men enjoy the sharp silhouette, natural shoulders and contemporary cut of the trousers. Wear the jacket as a sports jacket – it still looks right. Fall fabrics like this grey exaggerated glen check have a richer feel than spring and summer choices.
Samuelsohn’s signature Ice Wool fabric is an extraordinary combination of performance and luxury. Temperature-shocked, the wool acquires a natural resiliency that makes it water- and stain-resistant and improves its memory, so the shape bounces back. Seen here, an Ice Wool wool-and-silk blend in a blue-grey mélange.
A suit is a long-term investment – think three to five years. Keep the look fresh by deploying your options, jazzing it up or dressing it down with different shirts and a variety of accessories such as ties, pocket squares and boutonnieres.
The beauty of a three-piece suit is its versatility, whether you’re at the office or out on the town. A tonal charcoal windowpane adds visual richness to this example.
Why yes, that is a Mont Blanc pen! You’ll find an extensive selection of Mont Blanc belts, cufflinks, wallets, pens and bags online at harryrosen.com and in the Mont Blanc shop-in-shops inside Harry Rosen’s Yorkdale store in Toronto and Les Cours Mont Royal store in Montreal.
Buying a suit begins with test-driving different styles from several brands until you find the one that meets your specific needs and makes you look and feel your best. Your Clothing Advisor can guide you to the most natural fit, requiring minimal alterations.
This season marks the first full collection designed by Alessandro Sartori, now the creative director of Ermenegildo Zegna, Z Zegna and Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. A genius at giving heritage fabrics a very contemporary feel, he offers a rich grey tonal overcheck for this sophisticated suit. It’s the Torino model – cut with a fairly slim silhouette, semi-roped shoulders and peaked lapels.
Exceptional comfort is this suit’s secret, thanks to a pamperingly soft virgin wool and mohair fabric woven to provide a stretch effect to the ultra-slim fit. It feels as if the suit is almost conscious of your shape. And then there’s the colour – a deep aubergine that makes a statement at the office or at play. One caveat – the shirt and tie are best kept neutral.
A Munro suit can look youthful and modern; it can look authoritative and professional, too. This charcoal glen check with a blue overcheck is one of hundreds of fabrics available – so much more interesting than plain grey.
The beauty of Munro’s CustomMade program is the ease with which you can reinvest. Once your measurements are on file, you need only choose a different fabric for your next suit. Then comes the fun of deciding your own styling details, from shoulders and lapels to the lining, buttons, monogram, surgeon’s cuffs…whatever you want.
