1 Piece/3 Ways: Olive Stretch Cotton Suit

1 Piece/3 Ways: Olive Stretch Cotton 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 we show you three ways to wear our Olive Stretch Cotton Suit.

1. Business

Olive is an underrated color in men's suiting. 

It had a moment - somewhere in the late 80s/early 90s - but the fits were so oversized and wack back then that the olive suit actually caught a bit of a bad rap.

Today, a well tailored olive suit can be a stunning and refreshing look - one that is surprisingly versatile and easy to wear. Pair it with khakis, creams, browns, oranges, clay grays...any neutral earth tones, really.

2. Business Casual

Here's an easy combo to create a stylish "business casual" outfit for the Spring/Summer:

- Cotton suit

- Poplin shirt (2 buttons undone)

- Linen cardigan (also 2 buttons undone)

- Suede loafers

- Tortoise sunglasses

*All in earthtones

3. Man On The Move

Stretch cotton is a casual take on a suit - and it's designed to move. 

So pair it with a  simple knit sweater and an even simpler pair of sneakers - and you are ready for just about anything.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier
