THE STANDOUT SUIT
When incorporating tailoring into your spring wardrobe, opt for a vibrant suit that’s much more weekend than workplace, says menswear editor Ian Wright
While traditionalists may raise an eyebrow at a suit worn with a T-shirt and sneakers sans socks, those in the know are big fans of taking tailoring out of the office and employing suits away from their natural habitat. This suit’s versatility means it comes into its own when you’re not at your desk, the slim-fitting cut ensuring it can simply be combined with casual pieces in a look that feels completely current. Particularly apt for warmer evenings, this style is easily smartened up by switching to brogues or Derbies (remembering to grab a pair of invisible socks along the way) – but box-fresh white trainers and a pristine T-shirt are the ideal partners to team with such a vibrant electric-blue tone, and will recharge your wardrobe in a flash.
