To coincide with their spring/summer collection, Suitsupply has released a couple of lookbook-style images that provide an interesting take on summer tailoring for those that want to stand out.
Both outfits showcased in the lookbook utilise the same key pieces: a double-breasted blazer worn with tailored cargo trousers – a combination that has been seen regularly at recent fashion weeks.
The overall look creates a stark contrast between one of menswear’s more formal pieces of tailoring and the cargos, which are usually reserved for only the most casual of affairs. To prevent the pieces clashing, the DB’s feature a relaxed cut that is complemented by a slightly neater fitting, tailored trouser leg.
The first outfit utilises classic, seasonally appropriate tailoring – pairing a navy blazer with light stone trousers. The blazer has a worn, lived in aesthetic that when paired with the utilitarian cargos gives the outfit a more relaxed, casual air.
The outfit is finished with a bow tie and a pair of camouflage double monk straps that could have been stolen from the wardrobe of Nick Wooster:
The second outfit takes an altogether bolder approach. This time the cargo trousers incorporate an allover, on trend camouflage pattern.
Although the rest of the outfit is dialled back slightly in order to let the statement trousers take centre stage, the camo print only serves to emphasise the contrast between the tailored top half and casual, military inspired bottom – meaning you will need rock solid confidence in order to pull it off:
The Suitsupply spring/summer 2013 collection as a whole is exceptional – the brand produce excellent examples of tailoring, whether your are looking for traditional suiting or unusual separates that will bring new life and a touch of flair to your formal wear.
