10 best men's suits 

Ah, the suit. The best thing about living in 2019 is the suit is no longer something you are forced to wear to work and thus associated with a humongous inbox and encroaching deadlines. But rather, it’s freeingly something you can choose to wear, whisper it, for fun. Tailoring is having a resurgence in a big way, so we've done a handy round-up of the ten best suits to wear now. The freedom for where, and how, you wear them is yours.

1. The slim black one



HUGO Business Slim Fit Plain Jacket

 

Slim black tailoring was all over the Autumn/Winter 2019 catwalks – a real throwback to Hedi Slimane's revolutionary term at Dior Homme where he caused men everywhere to fall in love with a super-slim silhouette. It just so happens that slim black tailoring is hugely versatile – this suit is a case in point. 


HUGO Business, Slim Fit Plain Jacket, £259

 


2. The textured one



Tommy Hilfiger Tailoring Slim Fit Textured Blazer

 

Texture is key for giving a more casual look and also has wintery, feel-me-now vibes which we’re fully on board with. Pair this blazer with knitwear for a ridiculously suave get-up. 


Tommy Hilfiger Tailoring, Slim Fit Textured Blazer, £300

 


3. The slouchy one



Polo Ralph Lauren Blazer

 

Oversized, ‘80s suiting is a key trend in menswear but the risk is – unless your colleagues and friends know your style credentials – that you’ll look like you’ve unintentionally worn a baggy suit. So, the safer way to wear the trend is with a delightfully slouchy blazer. No questions will be asked.


Polo Ralph Lauren, Blazer, £285

 


4. The navy one



Calvin Klein Tailoring Fine Blazer

 

Navy is suave, classy and sophisticated, and it looks rather dashing with the colour wheel’s wintery favourites: burgundy and chocolate brown. We’re big fans.


Calvin Klein Tailoring, Fine Blazer, £300

 


5. The statement one



Twisted Tailor Floral Jacket

 

Statement suits, Harry Styles-esque, are everywhere. We’re been taking notes and as such are bundling this moody floral number into our wardrobe stat.


Twisted Tailor, Floral Jacket, £145

 


6. The charcoal one



Paul Smith Tailoring Flannel Jacket

 

Charcoal is an archetypal classy hue and flannel – with its pleasingly fuzzy texture – is the ideal winter weight for tailoring. It says business when you mean business, and social pro when drinks and gatherings are involved.


Paul Smith Tailoring, Flannel Jacket, £399

 


7. The velvet one



Twisted Tailor Jacket

 

Velvet was all over the AW19 catwalks (not literally, the floors were still floors) but this is wonderful news because a velvet blazer is ideal when all those Christmas parties come knocking at your door. We love this hue that looks straight out of a bottle of Merlot. 


Twisted Tailor, Jacket £145

 


8. The subtly checked one 



Skopes Hayling Wool Blend Suit Jacket

 

Checks say heritage like nothing else and with a whole school of thought in menswear currently dedicated to the Brummie pavements of Peaky Blinders, this jacket is right up that street. 


Skopes, Hayling Wool Blend Suit Jacket, £120

 


9. The black tie one



Skopes Barney Wool Blend Suit Jacket

 

Just as 2020 welcomes a new Bond film, we reckon that you should enter the new year on a similarly suave note. This Skopes number is very sophisticated indeed. Daniel Craig would approve. 


Skopes, Barney Wool Blend Suit Jacket, £165

 


10. The get-ahead one



Twisted Tailor Hemingway Slim Suit Jacket

 

There's no denying that a suit is an investment, so get one that’ll be bang on for next season now with this chalky blue number. Pastel tailoring was key on the Spring/Summer 2020 runways so you'll be joyfully ahead of the game.   


Twisted Tailor, Hemingway Slim Suit Jacket, £100
