The Pure Wool Suit

suit men's style

Invest in a pure wool suit. Not only is its quality obvious to the eye, it also responds to the changes in your body temperature. It insulates you when it’s cold outside, and helps wick moisture away from your skin if you’re sweating. Also, wool fibres are more elastic than other fibres. They stretch and move with you, but when returned to the hanger, they resume their natural shape.

The Classic Shirt

You can never have enough crisp, white shirts in your wardrobe – they go with everything. When buttoned up, your shirt collar should neither be too tight nor too loose. Find your perfect size by measuring the circumference of your neck where the shirt collar will be, or make sure there is enough space inside the collar to comfortably fit one finger.
