Why checked suits are big news now
17 August 2018
Whether you’re inclined to follow the crowd or go your own way when it comes to style, no one can deny the power and pull of an amazing new tailoring trend. Oftentimes, a new look will come and go with only a select group of men ever trying it, let alone rocking it. And then sometimes, something subtle but brilliant comes along – and it’s impossible to ignore.
Right now, it’s all about checked tailoring, always inspired by the timeless and unmistakable Prince of Wales suit. In some form or another, this classic piece of British fashion heritage has been a piece of menswear history since it was first made popular by the controversial Edward VIII when he was invested as Prince of Wales (and a world-class fashion icon) in the early 1900s. Since then, checked suiting has appeared and reappeared time and time again, season after season, growing and changing consistently enough to allow it to fit into modern standards of style. It’s favoured by men who are not only looking to follow trends and be in the know when it comes to style, but also by those looking to be a little bolder with their suiting choices.
There’s no denying that every man wants to stand out from the crowd and whether he’s looking to do that in the most subtle way possible or go a little bolder, the checked suit is undeniably his best starting point. So, if this is your first foray into the world of checks, it’s best to start gently by slowing introducing smaller prints and fine lines that blend into the suit’s main tone. If you’re ready to jump straight in, go for bold: think vibrant accents of colour to truly elevate your look. Whatever you choose, wear it with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you’ve opted for a seriously classic piece of menswear.
