    How to Wear a Hat with Your Suit

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Just 50 years ago, most men wouldn’t leave the house without first donning a hat. Back then, a hat was the perfect finish to a stylish ensemble. Although hats aren’t as popular as they once were, millions of stylish men have rediscovered their appeal. Here is a brief look at how you should choose and wear a hat to go with your suit:  

    Select a flattering style

    There are numerous kinds of hats that go well with suits, including bowlers, fedoras, porkpies, and caps. When choosing a style, you should consider how formal you want to your hat to look. For example, a fedora has a much sleeker shape than a newsboy cap.

    Get the right brim size

    Shorter-brimmed fedoras are currently in vogue. However, wider brims are better for blocking the sun. You should consider your face’s shape and features when selecting a brim size—a wider-brimmed hat is flattering choice for men with long faces, while short brims are better for men with smaller heads.

    Match it to your suit

    You should have a suit in mind when you buy a hat. Although hats don’t have to match the accompanying suit precisely, it’s nice if there’s some resemblance. For example, a grey hat should be paired with a similarly shaded suit. However, many men can pull off a hat-suit contrast to great effect.

    Tip it to the side

    Wearing a hat straight on your head can make you look like a square. In order to give yourself a style and attitude, you should tip your hat to the side. This goes for bowlers, fedoras, caps, and other many other hat styles. You might also push your hat back for a more casual look.

    Although hats can look good with virtually any outfit, they look their best when paired with a custom suit.

    Cuff Styles for Your Bespoke Suit

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you’re like most men, you probably gesticulate while speaking. As a result, people notice your hands and wrists more than you might assume. In order to make a good impression, you should carefully decide which cuffs to include on your bespoke suit. Here’s a brief look at the various cuff styles for jackets, dress shirts, and trousers:

    French cuff

    A French cuff is a type of dress shirt cuff that’s folded in on itself. Also called double cuffs, French cuffs are mainly reserved for formal occasions, as their relative thickness allows them to accommodate cufflinks very well. If you’d like a dress shirt that goes well with a tuxedo or a formal power suit, then you should opt for French cuffs.

    Single cuff

    A single cuff is not folded in on itself, and is a subtler option than the French cuff. For this reason, single cuffs are better for more casual dress shirts. If you wear a large watch, you should consider a dress shirt with a single cuff—that way, your wrist has more room to breathe.

    Jacket cuff

    Though many modern jacket cuffs have buttons sewn on them, they’re mostly decorative. However, some men opt for cuffs with functional buttons, also known as “surgeon’s cuffs.” Most jacket cuffs typically have three or four buttons, though some men go up to five. The best way to make a decision is to try each cuff style and see how you like them.

    Pant cuff

    Trousers with cuffed legs were extremely popular in the 20th century. Cuffed legs can accentuate the fact that your trousers are custom-made, and are more appropriate for formal suits. Unfortunately, trouser cuffs can make a short man appear even shorter.
