A Suit That Fits Blog
The Number One Suiting Resource

As we are flying through one of the most patriotic years Britain has seen for quite some time, all eyes were on Wimbledon yesterday - be it for the strawberries cream or the sport itself.Following on from Royal Ascot, this was another great occasion for bringing out some suiting masterpieces - hence why I have rounded up a few of my favourites:.
Firstly we have Andre Agassi with wife Steffi Graff - not only both tennis stars but also both in great ! Agassi has gone for a daring single breasted with notched lapels straight squared pockets.
And while we're on sporting stars I just couldn't miss out Ryan Giggs' dazzling blue suit. It is very similar in tone to Tom Cruise's infamous electric blue suit in Mission Impossible 4. It's such a statement colour this summer and looks great with a crisp white shirt. If you're looking for a brighter blue suiting cloth take a look at our VBC range, it's a beautifully lightweight cloth made from a Mohair mix.
Further evidence of the Blue craze is James Middleton seen here at Wimbledon. James has raised the tone even further with this sky blue suit. I'd definitely recommend getting a sample of our light blue linen if this is a look you'd care to try!
Keeping my eye on the many suited gents at Wimbledon this year I've noted that the notched lapel is definitely dominating as spectators have gone for a more relaxed style not requiring the sharp effect of a peaked lapel.
For the ladies - white is most definitely the colour! A bright white cropped jacket is perfect for the summer and is so easy to accessorise with any outfit. Wimbledon is such an essential British tradition and along with the strawberries and cream really signifies the start of the summer. It's a perfect excuse to put away your wintery black and grey suits and step out in something a bit more colourful. Pop in to Manchester or any of our studios and have a look through our extensive range of cloths to find the right colour for you!
We currently have the summer spectacular that is Wimbledon to enjoy for the next two weeks, come rain or shine.
There is no specific dress code as there is at or the , both of which I covered recently. However, this shouldn't mean you don't look your best.
For the blazer, navy is a summer classic. Go with patch pockets and light colour buttons to reinforce the casual nature of your outfit. Avoid the white trim to the lapels unless you want to be confused for an umpire.
I like white trousers - chinos or jeans are perfect. If you prefer a slightly darker shade then tan or khaki will work really well with a navy blazer . For shoes, a pair of casual loafers, sockless of course, will really help you pull off the effortless summer look.
