We recently partnered with the luxury men’s brand Bonobos for their Fall Style Challenge. We were given a choice of a few lifestyle shots of their blazer and men’s suit line and asked to design a coordinating fashion board. We chose The Nottingham Blazer for it’s sophisticated and approachable style. Our style story starts with a successful dad that has a fashionable wife, young daughter and newborn son. This is a perfect combo for holiday family pictures or parties.
Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design states “Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion.”
Fenton’s simple suit tips to find the right fit:
• Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
• Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
• Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.
