These are, shall we say, interesting times. An era of bigly disruptions. But the more the world shifts around us, the more we value the strength of a uncomplicated suit that's expertly cut. And now that top fashion houses turn them out as reliably as heritage tailors, you're bound to find a style that works for you.

1| Get an edge.

Find a singular detail that will make your suit distinct. For example, a slick tie could be enough to make a statement.

2| Play to your strengths.

In every style decision, you have to highlight your positives. With the right attitude, you can even go as far as pulling off a subtle plaid print and command the room.

3| Go blue collar.

Tired of black? Go for a cornflower blue. It's a shade that looks good on just about everyone.

4| Take a closer look.

In most cases, the details you don't think about make the difference: the fabric, the stitching, the fit down to the last millimeter. Anything off can quickly cheapen your suit.

If you dare to mix and match, find the similarities. How about matching the fine red stitching of your suit with a bold red tie?


6| Know when to call it quits.

Blue suit, red tie, spread-collar shirt, and classic trench? Good luck improving on that one.
