Look sharp, whatever the weather, writes Annmarie O'Connor.
Summer suiting is a hot trend, not least because of its cool factor. Purveyors of the look like David Gandy, Michael Fassbender and Chris Pine have made a signature out of lightweight linen or mix and match blazerchino combos.
What’s more, the high street has followed suit (pardon the pun) with their own fair-weather fashion offerings. Find your fit below with our tailor-made edit.
Single-breasted styles are a safe bet for most men. Tall and slim? Option a double-breasted suit for serious style points
MIX AND MATCH
This season’s suiting memo is relaxed. Use accents to create fresh combinations: pair a t-shirt and boxfresh trainers with sharp tailoring or tapered joggers with suede monkstrap shoes.
CUFFS ARE KING
Shirt cuffs should be visible between a quarter and a half an inch under a jacket sleeve. As for trousers cuffs? Aim for a ‘no break hem’ especially with a sockless loafer.
WATCH YOUR TONE
Tonal dressing (wearing different tones of the same colour) creates the illusion of length and is a surefire hack for looking put together.
Always tweak ‘off the rack’ with the help of your tailor to ensure the perfect fit.
