The striped suit has always been a traditional staple piece in every corporate man’s wardrobe and has managed to stand the test of time. Bold chalk stripe suits have always been worn by the man who wants to make a dramatic entrance or stand out from the crowd. On the contrary, self-stripe and light pinstripe suits are more conservative feel and are a popular choice for those wanting a change from a plain solid-coloured suit. Pinstripe suits can be surpsingly verstaile, for example by mix-and-matching with a pair of solid colour tailored suit pants.
As is mentioned in our guide to the business professional dress code, a striped suit is one of the only subtle patterns deemed acceptable for such a conservative work environment. Nevertheless, you can keep things interesting by opting for a rope stripe or chalk stripe suit instead of a pinstripe suit. Our Atticus navy pinstripe suit is the perfect example of a sophisticated business suit.
If you like stripes but don't like the association with businesswear, try a herringbone suit that mimics the vertical alignment of a striped suit. It's a classy way to stand out at your wedding or other special occasion.
