The classic black suit is smart and flattering. It means business. Whether you’re after a contemporary slim fit, or a classic wool suit for winter, chances are you’ll look the part in one of our black suits for work, a formal occasion, or even your wedding.
An absolute classic, a black suit is the most popular and recognisable formal-wear option available. The variety within this suit category is wide, but one thing is for sure, an all black suit is a wardrobe staple that every man should invest in. The black suit will, regardless of style or fit, be appropriate for countless occasions, and needs little done to it to stand out at formal events. Are you wondering when to wear a black suit? The classic black suit is a particularly good choice for special formal situations, such as weddings and funerals, as these are traditional occasions where a black suit is an appropriate choice. However, a black suit is equally fitting for parties, formals, dates and any other evening activities. During the daytime, you should let lighter coloured suits take the stage. The classic combination of a black suit, white shirt and black tie or bowtie, is an everlasting favourite. Playing with accessories, like pocket squares or cufflinks, is a great way of adding some personality to this traditional outfit. Equally, slim ties are great for a modern twist and coloured or patterned ties liven up the suit for occasions where that is appropriate. Black shoes are of course the obvious choice of footwear, but feel free to change up the style of your shoe depending on your outfit. Black suits are available in regular, tailored, slim and skinny fits and the cut will determine how versatile the suit is. A slimmer fit is modern and makes the black suit a more formal choice than regular fit alternative. The tailored fit is great for more traditional situations and is a good choice for weddings, or as the “go-to” black suit. You should also consider what fabric you’d like your suit to be constructed from. A wool suit is a sophisticated and beautiful option, perfect for an elegant expression and a great choice for the cooler months. A lightweight material on the other hand, makes for a durable and easy-to.wear suit that you can feel comfortable in at any time.
