Winter is a difficult period for the suit lovers. Snow, slob and cold are not inviting to wear suits and formal shoes for work. I do think though that’s worth to look good at work even in winter, so today I would like to share with you my proposal of a business attire for cold days.
this is not a very formal outfit and most likely you would not wear it for very important and serious business meeting because of certain reasons which I will mention underneath but it will work perfectly as an every day business attire and you certainly can wear it for a less formal, especially internal meetings in the office.
The predominant element of this outfit is a beautiful, original plaid suit. Its color is a mix of different shades of grey (from very bright to anthracite), and the checkered pattern is made of different shades of beige.
This suit is the main reason why the whole outfit is not suitable for the official meetings with clients or business partners. Checkered pattern decreases the level of formality of the suit, so does the fabric – thick, irregularly woven wool. Despite this I find this suit a great alternative to classic, plain suit, especially for fall and winter. This is single-breated suit, with classic but fitted cut. It has notch lapels with classic width of 8 cm. As for RTW garment it looks very good andfits very well (some minor corrections had to be made – shorten the sleeves and legs)
Other elements of the outfit are: white shirt made of pure cotton with a very soft touch, silk handkerchief with floral, oriental pattern and beautiful, silver pin in the shape of a feather. A tie a an interpretation of the Glenurquhart check. It’s made of wool so it has a thick but soft touch and the pattern gives it a depth.
On the top of that, to make the whole outfit lighter, I wore nice cufflinks in the shape of Spitfire fighters.
Last elements to mention are black monk shoes and cool wool socks in the houndstooth pattern – one of my favorites 🙂
Despite a very characteristic pattern, the plaid suit is an interesting alternative for those who like and know how to play and mix the patterns and colors. There is one rule though – one bold pattern is enough. Other elements of the outfit should be much more descreet and play the secondary role.
