The Suit & Performance Shirt


“The power of a suit. You know I actually just had several conversations about the power of a suit with a few new friends I made in the menswear industry. And the consensus is the following: a suit is a modern man’s armor. Women love it, men respect it, and you feel empowered.

The beauty of a suit is that it allows any guy to still give it his personal touch – the suit makes the guy, as much as the guy makes the suit. And that’s a lethal combination. Out of the array of colors and fabrics you can pick, the grey suit is easily the most versatile.

I paired mine with a plaid shirt, giving the look a little bit more texture, and then added a hint of color with a bordeaux tie. The pocket square, specs, watch and “manbag,” if you will, are kept achromatic, keeping the look overall very straight forward, with somewhat whimsical accents to bring it to live. And make it mine.”
