Nevertheless, this easy-going season may convert to a clemency in terms of dress code as everyone is out and about looking their best, there is no excuse for careless apparel. So, how does the modern day gentleman dress sharply for the office, a meeting, or an event during the hot summer season you might wonder? Every place of work will have diverse dress code guidelines, mainly when it comes to summer, but over-all, you should always follow the same rule: no matter the weather, it is always important to look sophisticated, proper and, if you please, fashionably elegant. To follow are some great tips to help you out this summer in terms of finding custom summer suits that will be dapper and stylish.
Suits are an indispensable component of the modern man’s wardrobe. Nonetheless, one tailored suit does not fit all, and that rule applies to seasons, too. In order to get yourself the most paramount of summer suits, it is particularly vital to pay consideration to the suit’s structure. The construction of a suit will govern its weight, feel and ability to breath. Choosing an unlined or half-lined suit will allow for much more aeration and coolness, however you may have to sacrifice some of the suit’s structure. Caring for the material your tailored suit is made of will also aid in a great way to keep you cool, as lighter-weight cloth and a looser weave in the fabric will offer more airflow and reduce heat. Next we can look at the best fabrics for custom summer suits.
During the winter months, tweed, wool, and cashmere tailored suits are appropriate, as these fabrics not only looks more structured and professional but also keeps you warm. During the summer, however, you should switch out these heavy suits for breathable, lightweight fabrics such as linen. Linen is a classic material for summer and it has been so for hundreds of years. It is one of the most popular textiles for summer suits due to its lightweight and breathable knit. It is naturally made from the fibers of the flax plant and it has a visible weave and a pronounced natural texture that feels and looks great. It also wrinkles quite simply, which is part of its unforced charm. However, if you plan on wearing this suit to work, you may want to try a linen blend that is made up of cotton or wool to minimize the wrinkling. Cotton on its own is also a great option for summer suits. The cotton tailored suit is one of the most adaptable of choices, because it permits you to have a sophisticated yet pretty casual look that is exceptionally summer-friendly. The fabric is quite stiffer than your wool suiting cloths but it is also cooler.
When you have selected your summer fabric of choice, the next reasonable step is color. Believe it or not, some colors are made for summer and others just aren’t. Understandably, navy, charcoal gray, and black tailored suits should always make up the foundation of any man’s formal wardrobe. Lighter colors such as khakis and light grays will help you out in the summer by reflecting heat instead of absorbing it. Summer is also the perfect time to start introducing color, vibrancy, and boldness into your closet. A sister shade to the tried and true charcoal gray, light gray is a color that will work quite well with pretty much any other fabric in terms of a summer suit. Try a light gray suit with a bold colored tie and pocket square for an elegant look that is seamless for work. Move away from the gloomier navy suit staple and be daring enough to try out other shades of blue. Baby blue is a great color to try on this summer and it goes best with linen for a classic summer look. This eye-catching, yet still polished shade is perfect for adding a youthful and fun flair to your look as a whole. A go-to color for summer and spring would definitely have to be khaki. The khaki suit is textbook for any daytime event. All the same it is highly advised that you avoid wearing this color in the evening because it can look a little out of place at a formal gala. Men can wear red too, and yes it looks just as good. If you already have a strong collection of basic suit shades in your closet, maybe a red custom suit should be your next move! It really has been making its way more and more in to fashion catalogues and also on the runway. Dare we say this bold shade is here to stay? A good friend of red that will also pair well this summer would be maroon. This rich and saturated color will work quite beautifully for a summer suit and it will also effortlessly transition into your fall wardrobe.

Floral prints are huge in menswear all around the world and this is a trend we love for summer. This season, the floral print movement takes an upscale attitude by assimilating itself into suiting.
