As Christmas fast approaches, we take a look at some male models for our top five suits of the week. In this way, you can envision how your made to measure custom suiting will look in the no doubt many photographs that are taken over the festive season. Here we take a look at some super suiting as worn by supermodels Sean O’Pry, Simon Nessman, David Gandy, Jon Kortajarena and Gabriel Aubrey.
With his grey bowtie and navy scarf on display, here we see a great example of formal and practical winter suiting for the colder months as worn by Sean O’Pry. He wears these accessories alongside a deep navy bespoke suit and white fitted shirt.
In his seated position, we see that O’Pry’s suiting can accommodate for his movement as the garments still hang comfortably and respectfully in place. This is attributed to the made to measure aspect of his suiting here – as this is cut to his personal measurements, he is free to move about naturally and enjoy the adaptation of his suiting that leaves a stylish and functional impression.
His colour combination is balanced well here and the smattering of pattern detail is perfect for the festive season. By alleviating the dark bespoke blazer and tailored trousers with a lighter grey polka-dot bowtie, white pocket square and navy and white polka-dot scarf; O’Pry ticks all the boxes of sharp and practical winter suiting for the modern man.
Safe in the knowledge that winter months are obviously the colder ones (in most climates); Simon Nessman wears a jumper with his two piece suiting. The black colouring of said jumper is worn with a dense grey suit and lighter shirt and pocket square forming a colour palette that is drawn from winter colours; albeit with a splash a formal lightness thrown in for good measure.
In this standing position, we really see how his bespoke tailored garments fit Nessman well. His bespoke blazer provides a solid and deliberate square shape to his shoulder and upper arm area which brings across a sense of masculine presence.
In a similar vein, his tailored trousers hang poker-straight from his legs to reinforce his natural height and stature. A neatly buttoned shirt, patterned tie and his use of the jumper means that Nessman has assembled a comfortable and subtle formal ensemble perfect for the winter months.
Bringing a tailored overcoat with him into proceedings this week is David Gandy. He wears this black tailored overcoat over a navy two piece suit, white shirt and dot-patterned navy tie. As is appropriate for the season, all of these colours are complementary of the current winter season.
This picture of Gandy is the visual epitome of how function and practicality are achieved by made to measure tailoring and suiting. It is undeniable that Gandy looks sharp and dapper here, but it cannot be denied that his suiting works for him in a practical manner while still looking stylish.
We see this evidenced by the tailored overcoat which does not drown out either his suiting or his silhouette, his tailored trousers which drape straight down the leg without the fabric gathering and obscuring the sharp singular pleats on each leg and also by the wrinkle free, stock white shirting that binds and finishes his overall look.
For those who like to add some fun and utilise some brighter colours into their winter suiting, Jon Kortajarena provides a visual example here. By pairing the rarely seen (aside from wedding and tuxedo suiting) white pair of tailored trousers and a frosted berry coloured bespoke blazer; this is winter suiting that channels the glistening snow instead of the dreary skies.
The interesting white trousers find place in the winter months and festive season as they inject and add to the sense of fun that comes with Christmas proceedings. Due to their high visibility colour, it is that bit easier to spot blemishes such as creases in them. However once these are made to measure as Kortajarena’s are here, the only creases that appear are as an unavoidable result of natural leg movement.
His frosted berry coloured blazer is cut from a soft fabric that appears comfortable when worn. Like with the white tailored trousers, the light colour here adds a heightened visibility to the design details on display with the blazer such as the flat breast pocket and button detailing at the sleeves.
For our final entry into our top five suits of the week, Gabriel Aubrey makes an appearance in his bespoke two piece suiting that features a narrow pinstripe pattern on both his bespoke blazer and tailored trousers.
This is a very suave and sophisticated look as worn by Aubrey and is a perfect ensemble for the more formal events that one may attend over winter. A litany of straight lines and clean angles are seen here on his bespoke blazer (flap pocket detailing and peaked lapels), fitted shirt (crisp collar and wide tie) and his tailored trousers which feature a sharp pleat.
A semblance of shine is achieved with his look that emanates from the iridescent fabric of his tie, his leather belt and belt buckle and also from his leather dress shoes.
