A SUIT THAT MEANS BUSINESS
Business suits are a set of garments made from the same cloth. A two-piece suit consists of at least a jacket and trousers. Whereas a three-piece suit includes a waistcoat underneath the jacket.
We will focus here on the two-piece suit as it’s the most commonly worn by men in the office. A three-piece suit is now mostly reserved for weddings or very formal occasions.
THE RICHNESS OF DETAILS
Clearly, your office style should send a powerful message to your coworkers: you’re smart, efficient, ambitious, and ready to maximize your potential.
The secret to a successful office wardrobe for men is in the details. It is in the quality of your suits’ cut and fabric. It is in the fit of your shirt and its finishing touches. And how well you’re able to pull it all together in an attractive and compelling way.
Master the finishing touches of your garment to design a piece that is absolutely yours. That is the secret to obtaining a business professional attire!
THE SOPHISTICATED WATCH POCKET
Furthermore, add a watch pocket to your trousers. Originally thought of as a safe place for men to store their watches, it has become a great addition to give your pants a unique and sophisticated look. Perfect for a professional business ensemble.
FUNCTIONING BUTTONHOLES FOR A FUNCTIONING BUSINESSMAN
Then, using functioning buttonholes will add depth to your custom look. Originally known as “surgeon cuffs,” functional buttonholes remain a fundamental and identifiable element of a well-tailored jacket. Our stylists suggest negligently leaving the last button undone to mark its difference from ready-to-wear.
PICK STITCHING TO COMPLETE A CUSTOM LOOK
Finally, finish your custom suit with pick stitching to tie your business professional look together. Pick stitching is the tailor’s final touch, like the signature on a painting. It adds an extra “finished look” to a custom suit. Designed to blend seamlessly into the suit, or to involve a contrasting colour and add visual interest.
MOST OF ALL, MAKE SURE YOU STAND OUT
One of the main advantages of choosing an EXEL fabric for your next suit is that you will be one of the few people in the world to actually own one. Dormeuil makes approximately 300 yards of these premium fabrics, which allows for the creation of about 100 suits worldwide. Yes… it is that limited.
THE PERFECT BUSINESS ATTIRE: BURGUNDY IN THE SPOTLIGHT
It’s not easy to obtain a business professional attire all while trying to stand out from the crowd. A burgundy suit will make you stand out in a room full of black and charcoal colours. With its vintage feel, burgundy is the perfect choice for creative minds. This colour represents nobility, passion, and good taste making it a must-have this season. Combined with an off-white, pink or blue striped shirt, it creates an original yet modern look you can easily wear from the office to the cocktail party.
A wise decision for those who like to stand out from the crowd.
