Time For A Check Up

Time For A Check Up

With great power comes a great looking suit and this time we're talking all things checked. Checked suits have seen a revival of late, whether you're going for vintage vibes or the Italian Spezzatura look, you're guaranteed to look devilishly dapper in a classic checked three piece. Check out some of what we've got to offer...

 

 

Oh the Eton, consistently sitting at the top spot showing us that it's a firm favourite from the collection. Ideal for the time of year too, the Eton boasts an autumnal wine and tan check layered upon a traditional herringbone weave. Open up the blazer and you'll reveal the two-tone colour pop lining in a statement camo print bringing it back into the 21st century. The Eton suit has become a key style for grooms and groomsmen opting for the vintage look but has also been seen on Instagram styled in innovative ways by the fashion conscious bloggers of today. Versatile and super sharp, it's hard not to love this one!

 

 

Only for the brave, the Magnum suit will make a bold statement allowing the suit to do the talking. Oozing Pitti Uomo vibes, this suit takes inspiration from Italian tailoring with its showstopping windowpane check in two contemporary colour ways. Accessorise it with a crisp white shirt and brogues for your occasion wear or take it for a kick about and pair with white trainers for the sports luxe look. What's more, you can also bag this one with either a double or single breasted waistcoat so you can really make the Magnum your own. Diversity at its best!

 

 

Another much-loved tweed check is our Ted suit. Think traditional English gent made modern and you'll get this gem! Crafted from herringbone cloth and layered with a timeless yellow and blue multi tonal check, it has been a key MD style for quite some time. Style this beauty with a pair of trusty tan brogues and a grandad collar shirt to truly embrace the vintage characteristics. You can even tone it down for those off duty days by swapping the waistcoat out with a fine polo neck knit, the possibilities are endless! Looking to impress then the Ted will be your hero piece.

 

 

You can't go wrong with a blue suit and you're spoilt for choice with our Harry which is available in two striking shades of blue. Go for the indigo during the Autumn/Winter months to reflect the darker hues of the season or throw on the sky blue for the Spring when pastels are in their prime. Either way you'll be going the extra mile in this heritage tweed charmer and cutting a stylish silhouette whilst doing so. 

 

 

And finally, if it's a statement suit you're after then the Roman is the one for you. This head-turning number comes in a stunning combination of icy blue and silvery grey (pictured) and can also be acquired in a contemporary blue and gold colour way, spot on for Autumn! Featuring a bold check, somewhere in between a gingham and a windowpane, this is a suit of self assurance and guaranteed to spice up your formalwear. Use the blue and gold checks to your advantage by combining with a coordinating tie, our paisley ones work a treat!
