1 Piece/3 Ways: Essential Light Navy Suit

1 Piece/3 Ways: Essential Light Navy Suit

Every Articles of Style suit is designed so that the components can also be worn as a separate jacket, trouser, and vest.

We created the “1 piece/3 ways” series to give you some ideas on how you can style a timeless suit for different occasions; so you can get the most out of your garments and learn to build a sustainable wardrobe with style.

In this edition, Will shows you three ways to wear our Essential Suit in Light Navy.

1. Wedding Season

Looking for a way to make a classic "business suit" look more casual, cool and stylish?

Two ideas:

1. A band collar shirt

2. A contrast vest (in a textured seasonal fabric)

2. Business Casual

The trousers always get worn more than the jacket. That's why we recommend adding a second pair to your most basic suits.

These navy suit trousers, for example, can be the bottom-half of literally hundreds of different outfits. Pair them with any shirt, any sweater and any sportcoat to get started.

Here, Will wears them with a blue linen shirt and our wool/silk/linen houndstooth jacket.

3. Weekend Tailoring

A suit doesn't have to be all about business. 

Sometimes it's just about class and elegance.

Pair it with a polo shirt and a pair of loafers - if the suit fits properly and is well-made, you will easily be one of the best-dressed guys anywhere you go.


Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier
