You know the drill, we select a suit and show you four ways to style it so that you can explore its full potential. This time we focus on the brand new Abbott suit. It's a sure-fire crowd pleaser with its classic navy and timeless check, but to reap the rewards of this dapper suit, you're going to need to know how to wear it. Trust us when we say, there's not just one way! So if you have already bagged this one or have it waiting on your wish list, take note of these unique looks...
Who can resist a cosy knit in the Autumn/Winter months? The good news is you don't have to, because a roll-neck knit and blazer is a winning combo. Not only will you stay warm as the temperature plummets to single figures, you'll also be perfectly suited for the smart casual dress code. Keep the focus on the blazer by pairing with comfy navy chinos, brogues and a silk scarf for good measure.
Embrace the change in workwear traditions and wear a tweed check to the office. The Abbott is the perfect place to start and will sure get you noticed. The subtle berry tones in the check can be accentuated with a pale pink shirt and wine tie to really bring the look to life. Accessorise with a tie clip and a coordinating square fold pocket square for a more corporate look.
Abbott also looks great as a wedding look. If there's a bit too much going on for you, the check can be toned down a little with a plain navy waistcoat and a waistcoat chain for a vintage touch. Lighten things up a bit with a sky blue tie in a paisley print, the perfect colour to match with bridesmaids dresses. Accessorise with a crisp white shirt and navy brogues, and you'll be on to a winner!
Last but not least, this look demonstrates how a pattern clash can be pulled off. A polka dot tie is a versatile piece every man should have in his wardrobe. This navy polka dot with matching pocket square adds an instant lift to the look and matches the contrast pocket trim. A club collar shirt with a pin will take the smart levels up a notch and some wine brogues will keep things from looking too blue.
