  • White – Pick this up when it’s officially summer. Make sure that a white suit is a custom fit and tailored  to your shoulders and tapered at the waist; it is a great pick for weddings. Furthermore, keep your shirt and tie extremely simple to don the look.

  • Brown – Chocolate Brown breaks the monotony in a wardrobe full of suits. Add a pocket square on a brown suit with the same coloured tie.

Once you have made the choice of colour for your suit and shirt, you now have to pick the fabric for the same. The quality of the fabric determines its cost, however, the way you carry your suit is the most important factor.

  • Cotton – Cotton is the most durable suit fabric. It does well for summers as well as springs.              
  • Polyester – When you need to cut costs, grab a polyester suit. It doesn’t wrinkle, but it doesn’t breathe well either.
  • Linen – Linen suits are most commonly worn for beach weddings. If you ever want to adapt a vintage look, blindly pick a linen suit! A sky blue linen suit paired with a chocolate brown belt, striped shirt and suede shoes is a signature look. You can even wear a brown linen suit with a white or an orange shirt for a contemporary look.
  • Velvet – Velvet is one of the most luxurious fabrics. Pick this one for a cocktail party or an event where you need to stand out. However, this fabric can be worn in very few situations; it’s only recommended when you want to be the centre of attraction.

  • Wool – It doesn’t wrinkle and when it does, the wrinkles fall out quickly. A perfect wool suit for work will be 80s wool. For a luxurious attire, opt for 100s wool and for a smooth suit, the 120s one.
