It can be a little daunting, aimlessly scrolling through pages of suits, not knowing or understanding which suit is right for the occasion. Well, fear not. We’ve got you covered.
Here at Marc Darcy, we know suits. Let’s jump into the different types of suits available for all sorts of special occasions.
Suits for the office
When it comes to office attire, one can never underestimate the power of a well-fitted suit. It not only exudes professionalism but also showcases a sense of style and confidence.
First thing to consider when buying a suit for the office is fit. Opt for tailored suits that flatter your body shape and create a streamlined silhouette. Avoid oversized or tight-fitting suits, as they can make you appear unprofessional or uncomfortable. Ensure that the shoulders align perfectly, the jacket sleeves are the right length, and the trousers are neither too long nor too short.
While classic colours like black, navy, and grey remain popular choices for office suits, don't be afraid to experiment with other shades. Our Danny suit is simple and sophisticated and is available in traditional Black or slightly more daring Royal Blue.
Consider incorporating subtle patterns or textures to add visual interest to your ensemble. Our Jenson style offers a modern take on the office suit and is great paired with jeans for casual Fridays.
When choosing shirt and tie combinations, opt for complementary colours that create a cohesive and polished look. Remember, the goal is to present yourself as a professional and confident individual.
Suits for graduation
When choosing the perfect graduation suit, there are several considerations to keep in mind. One of the most important factors is the style and fit of the suit. There are various suit styles to choose from, such as two-piece suits or three-piece suits, single breasted waistcoats or double breasted waistcoats. It's essential to select a style that suits your personal preference and body type. The fit of the suit is equally important. It's crucial to find a suit that fits you well, as a well-fitted suit can enhance your overall appearance.
Another important aspect to consider when choosing a graduation suit is the fabric and colour. The fabric choice will depend on the season and weather conditions. For summer graduations, opt for lighter fabrics like cotton or with added elastane like our JD4 Suit that will help keep you comfortable during the long ceremony. As for colour, it's best to choose a suit that compliments the colour of your graduation gown. Most graduation gowns are either black or navy blue, so selecting a suit in a darker colour like charcoal grey or navy blue would be a safe choice. However, if you want to add a pop of colour or showcase your personal style, you can opt for a suit in a different shade like our Max Suit in Wine. Ultimately, the fabric and colour of your graduation suit should reflect your personal taste and make you feel confident and stylish on your special day.
Suits for weddings
Planning a wedding is an exciting time, and as the groom, one of the most important decisions you'll make is what suit to wear on your big day. Your wedding suit should not only make you look dashing and sophisticated but also reflect your personal style. Your wedding suit should fit you like a glove. A well-fitted suit not only enhances your appearance but also boosts your confidence.
The colour of your wedding suit is an important aspect of your overall look. Black tie suits have seen a surge in popularity of late, our Dalton Suit is perfect for those wishing to adopt this style. Navy and blue suits are always a popular choice, whether you want something simple and refined like our Max Navy Suit or you’re looking for something a little more vibrant like our Dion Suit, this choice of colour is a safe bet and will match with most wedding themes.
Suits for funerals
Funerals hold significant importance as they provide an opportunity for individuals to come together and pay their respects to the deceased. Understanding the significance of funerals helps us recognise the importance of dressing appropriately for such occasions. While black has traditionally been associated with mourning attire, it is no longer considered essential. However, opting for dark colours such as navy or charcoal is still a suitable choice for funeral attire. The key is to dress in a manner that reflects dignity and respect, rather than showcasing one's personality. The general rule of thumb is to dress as you would for a business meeting, selecting elements that are respectful and conservative. Our Max Suit in Black is a safe and appropriate option, as is our Callum Suit, ensure if you do wear a tie it’s plain and not too garish.
Suits for date night
Understanding the dress code for smart casual is essential for navigating various social events, especially date nights! Smart casual attire strikes a balance between casual and formal wear, making it ideal for occasions that require a smart yet relaxed appearance
This dress code typically consists of neat chinos or dark coloured jeans paired with a shirt, a blazer, and leather shoes. A check blazer is a flexible option that lends a unique twist to this look; the Jerry Grey Blazer is an excellent choice if you're searching for a blazer that meets the bill. Alternatively a tweed blazer is a classic choice that has timeless appeal, opt for a neutral blazer like our Ted tweed blazer.
