* When off the rack is a better option than bespoke
* Versatile enough for any occasion
* Rule of thumb: only the top button on a two-button suit should be buttoned
Suits aren’t necessarily for everyone, but you should, at the very least, have one in your closet at all times. Life happens and you never know when you might need one. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to spend a small fortune either. Buying off the rack and having it tailored is a much smarter move — both financially and sartorially. So consider this single-breasted, two-button, slim fitting suit from DKNY.
Made from a blend of wool (75%), polyester (20%) and silk (5%), the chances of this suit being an all-year-round option are quite high. The intermixed nature of the white and black also lends itself to any occasion making it quite the versatile suit; easy to dress up or down based on your needs. With a flat front and no pleats on the pants, you won’t have to worry about whether you’re making the right move there either.
The jacket is trim and tailored without being too tight and constricting. It features an external chest pocket at the left, four-button cuffs and an interior half lining. Wear it as part of the full suit, or on its own over a T-shirt, jeans and boots for more casual nights out. It’s also single-breasted, which is the style you want to be looking for. (Let’s be honest, we don’t see double-breasted coats making a comeback anytime soon.)
But why a two-button? Well, it’s a classic style that’s more modern than a three-button that won’t ever go out of style. It’s less stuffy and more contemporary. Just remember that only the top button gets buttoned and you’ll look like a million bucks.
