Tips for Men's Festive Wear

Dress According to the Occasion


The choice of attire is usually dictated by the dress code. For weddings, the dress code is often black tie or formal. Formal attire entails a smart, official suit with a bit of room for experimentation with colors. For instance, during the summer season, linen suits or lighter shades are appropriate. A 'black tie' dress code signifies a smart and subdued suit, typically in dark gray, black, or navy blue.


For birthday or graduation parties, opt for a dress shirt, smart trousers, and perhaps even a blazer. You can skip the tie in this situation. The dress code for corporate events is often determined by workplace dress etiquette. If you're unsure about what to wear, it's always a good idea to seek advice from the event organizer or consult knowledgeable salespeople at clothing stores.


Men's Suit Trends


Currently, lightweight and slightly looser-fitting suits are the trendiest and most popular. As summer approaches, the colors lighten up, with beige, green, and various shades of brown dominating the summer color palette. A navy suit is always a reliable choice.


We encourage you to boldly experiment with different suits and colors. It's important to consider what message you want to convey with your attire. The suit should reflect your personality. A suit looks best when the wearer feels confident and comfortable in it.

Guide to Buying a Suit


When choosing a suit, consider its purpose, fit, and your personal style. Do you wear suits often, and do you own several? Do you prefer subtle colors, or do you like to incorporate unique elements? However, the most crucial aspect is that the suit feels comfortable. If you wear a suit daily, it's essential to consider its durability. If you don't wear suits frequently, opt for a versatile suit suitable for various occasions.


Pay attention to the fit when buying a suit. The fit of the shoulders, sleeves, and trousers is paramount. A well-fitted suit makes the wearer look stylish and confident. The jacket should fall smoothly on the upper body, without forming wrinkles at the top.


The length of the sleeves is crucial; too short sleeves give a childish impression, while too long sleeves make the entire jacket appear oversized. The sleeves should elegantly reach the wrist bone, with about 1cm of the dress shirt visible underneath. This not only looks good but also protects the jacket cuffs from dirt.


The trousers should fall neatly over the shoes without wrinkling. Nowadays, slimmer trousers are slightly shorter than traditional trousers. With narrower legs, the trousers don't drape over the shoes as much, so they're often kept slightly shorter. With classic wider legs, a slight break at the front is acceptable. If you're unsure about the fit of the suit, it's worth consulting professionals. Even small alterations can make a big difference.

Ties and Bow Ties Complete the Look


Ties and bow ties can often be interchanged. Funerals and formal events often dictate the use of accessories based on their dress code. If the dress code isn't specified, the wearer can decide which to choose. In recent years, bow ties have been favored. This summer's trends will see a lot more ties. For more casual events, such as birthdays, graduations, or corporate gatherings, a dress shirt alone is often sufficient. However, it's better to be slightly overdressed than underdressed. Therefore, we recommend playing it safe. Tip: It's a good idea to pack a tie or bow tie just in case.


Suit Tailoring


The most crucial aspect is that the shoulders fit perfectly. Everything else can be easily adjusted by a tailor. However, a suit doesn't always need alterations. Often, you can find a well-fitted off-the-rack suit. If alterations are required, they usually involve shortening sleeves and trousers. Depending on the location, shortening trousers costs around 20–30 euros, and shortening sleeves costs about 40–60 euros.
