THE SMART WAY TO SUIT UP

Our top 10 tips for keeping your look fresh, interesting and always sophisticated.

The tailored suit has been around for at least two centuries, and in that time, everyone’s come up with their own set of rules for how to wear this essential piece properly. At INDOCHINO, we honor the tradition of meticulous tailoring and will always champion the value of a perfectly fitted garment. However, we also believe that traditions evolve over time and that every man should have a little fun with their daily suit armor. We’ve compiled 10 tips for the modern gentleman on how to keep your suit always looking hip, bold and sophisticated.

1. EMBRACE THE MID-TONES
Take a slight departure from your classic navy ensemble. Mid-tone blue suits are a versatile option if you’re planning on wearing your suit to the office and social events.

2. PATTERN ON PATTERN
A tie in a vibrant print pairs well with a micro-patterned shirt in a complementary color scheme.

3. KEEP IT CASUAL
For Casual Friday at the office, ditch the shirt and tie look and wear your suit with a button-down collar instead.

4. KIND OF BLUE TUXEDO
A midnight blue tuxedo echoes the elegance of classic black but differentiates you from the crowd.

5. MOVE LIKE A SHARK
If you’re looking for a suit that travels well for quick business trips, choose a fabric like Sharkskin that is wrinkle-resistant and breathable.

6. A HINT OF CUFF
Suit jacket sleeves should end right above your wrists, exposing around half an inch of your shirt cuffs.

9. YES, GOING SOCKLESS IS ACCEPTABLE
In warmer weather and more relaxed occasions, it’s completely acceptable (if not advisable) to go sockless with your suit.

10. TRY A DOUBLE-BREASTED BLAZER
The double-breasted blazer is a powerful look. Add peak lapels to your jacket for extra bravado.
