With the festive season fast approaching you may already be thinking about how to save those pennies. The ever growing list of Christmas desirables doesn't have to include multiple outfits for NYE drinks, pub lunches and Christmas Day itself, why not get the most out of one single suit by creating multiple ways to wear it? Think of it as four looks for the price of one ;). In the past, we've demonstrated how to do this with some of our popular tweeds, this time it is the turn of the Max suit. The perfect take on the classic navy suit which has been surging in popularity since its release, here's what you need to know to style up your Max suit in four different ways.
If you feel like a plain navy suit has a bit of a corporate feel to it then give it a new lease of life by swapping out the waistcoat. This styling trick will add another dimension to your look and transform it from boardroom wear to downright suave. Mix textures with a tan tweed waistcoat in a double-breasted style like the Ted to bring out the accent buttons of the suit and give it a heritage look.
On the flip side, the Max suit does make for a simple, stylish and sophisticated work wear look. If the uniform permits, go tie free and wear one of our contrast button down shirts. The Charlie shirt with tan buttons compliments the Max suit perfectly and will keep you feeling comfortable with its cotton blend fabric. You can also opt for skinny trousers for a more streamlined look.
Now we delve in to Peaky Blinders territory as we bring you another mix and match look. The Edward waistcoat gives a vintage feel to the suit and coordinates nicely with the hints of tan. The penny collar and pocket watch complete the Shelby-esque look and don't be afraid to mix tweeds, a tweed tie from a similar enough colour palette won't cause a clash.
If the occasion calls for something a touch more formal then instead of a waistcoat change you can elevate the suit through accessories. As the Max suit is fairly subdued, you have the option of bringing in some pattern and colour with the tie and pocket square. Bear in mind the colour palette and which colours work well together. The paisley tie set in gold adds impact, matches nicely with the navy and makes for a great wedding guest look.
