Men's suit jackets and trousers are a timeless and elegant cornerstone of the smart wardrobe but a well-cut suit jacket deserves a life of its own. With a little fashion creativity, it can mix up your office or smart casual looks.
Give extra life to your business suits by pairing well-tailored men's suit jackets in seasonal dark greys with your navy or black suit trousers. Leave off your tie and wear your shirt open-necked or swap it for a lightweight crewneck jumper. This relaxed business casual look takes you easily through the day from informal meetings in the morning to evening dinner dates. A smart single-breasted blue suit jacket doubles up neatly as a blazer. Wear it with light coloured men's chinos, casual shirts and loafers for weekend lunches with the family or add it to distressed jeans and a white T-shirt for nights out with the guys.
To create a retro mod vibe pick men's suit jackets with narrow notched lapels and double flap pockets or shiny designs in a daring shade of bright blue. Team with drainpipe jeans and crepe soled shoes before heading off for a night on the dance floor. With the Christmas party season on the horizon team the velvet and satin collars of black tuxedo jackets with tailored black trousers and formal shoes. If the black tie dress code isn't too strict stand out from the crowd in bright red bow ties and matching pocket squares.
