Slick and suave suiting is on the agenda this week as we bring you the top five suits of the week as worn by Zac Efron, Ryan Sweetman, Joey Rudman, Kyle Newman and Jonny Weston.
For his red carpet appearance, Zac Efron chooses a patterned two piece suit. The subtle pattern reveals itself upon closer inspection to be a segmented and geometrical design that combines both rigid honeycomb and flowing camouflage shapes. The colours on display here are that of intertwining black and navy resulting in a traditionally coloured ensemble with contemporary design detail.
Cut in a relaxed fit, Efron’s suiting hangs from his physique comfortably. We can see that his bespoke blazer, left unbuttoned, hangs strong from his shoulders before finishing just below the waist and with sleeves stopping appropriately at his wrists respectively. In a similar fashion, his tailored trousers feature a sharp singular pleat on each leg and are hemmed correctly to thus finish at the ankle.
Standing over six feet tall (and towering over wife Kelly Cuoco in the process), Ryan Sweetman no doubt visits the tailor for suiting that fits his frame perfectly. In this instance, he wears a navy two piece suit that is cut from a luxurious crease free fabric. Sweetman pays careful consideration to colour combinations here and successfully pairs his suiting with a similar navy shirt and complementary brown leather shoes.
The cut of Sweetman’s suit adds to the effortlessly sophisticated aura that his suiting exudes. As his garments are made according to his measurements, the perfect amount of material is cut to avoid both creasing and excess fabric and also meaning that not one area is too tight or taut on his torso.
Appearing dapper and sleek in a two piece suit, Joey Rudman defaults to a slick black fabric which is with keeping in the dark suit palette colouring we have witnessed this week. His unbuttoned patterned shirt recalls the past summer heat and the grey and white intertwining colours provide an alleviating visual break from his darker suiting.
His tailored trousers raise an important decision to be made when it comes to made to measure suiting – should you choose to have belt loops or not? The choice is yours and Rudman has chosen to have them on this occasion. The light weight of Rudman’s suiting lends itself well to the slim fit of his apparel. While his fitted blazer frames his back and shoulders, it still retains a quicksilver appearance with its varying fluid lines and angled creases that capture and reflect the light.
Proving that colour combinations can be varied and subdued at the same time, Kyle Newman does so in his two piece suiting. Wearing a navy blazer with khaki green chinos and a maroon shirt, Newman utilises colour to create a unique ensemble. While keeping the major garments of his outfit to stock colours (such as his bespoke blazer cut from a navy fabric that provides a solid slant outlining his shoulders and his khaki green chinos which are cut close to the leg for a streamlined fit); the addition of the maroon shirt, which features white polka dots, is neither jarring nor distracting.
It is interesting to note that he has upturned the legs of his chinos possibly because they were originally too long for him. This may reflect a thinking in that chinos cannot be altered or tailored when in fact they can like any other pair of trousers. Completed with a navy pair of boatshoes, Newman in his totality models a contemporary smart-casual look.
Jonny Weston’s two piece suit is cut from a jet black fabric that is so inky and fluid-like that it could be a painting. Take a look at the two flap pockets adoring the blazer for example – they are etched perfectly against the overall blazer. The fabric used in his suiting gains this painterly characteristic as it is cut from a high thread count material that results in an accomplished finish. In tandem with this, razor sharp bespoke tailoring is also at play to ensure the fabric achieves this justified finish.
Weston’s black suiting receives a contrasting flash of light from his grey shirting and silver tie which when worn together serve as a welcome contrast to the aforementioned black. His tailored trousers retain the absolute darkness as seen with his blazer and in this instance the creases caused by his leg movement appear as inky ripples instead of simple wrinkles. Weston’s choice of suiting material elevates his ensemble to new heights of sartorial artistry.
