THE TAILOR’S STROKE IN NOVEMBER 2016
Find out how to always stay classy, right from the tailor’s.
The Double-Breasted Light Blue Suit
The double breasted suit is a classical piece, that takes you back to the 1930’s & 1940’s when Al Capone run the streets of Brooklyn. It has certainly not lost it’s flair and today it is very much a statement piece of Power. Like an Armour!
The Brown Slip-On Dress Shoes
A good look with the wrong pair of shoes, is like being handed a glass of poisoned water on a hot humid afternoon. It kills everything else. So strive to have the right pair of shoe. Brown goes well with any blue. Pairing this up with some well deserving socks (polka dot, in this case), exudes true class.
The Inner-Lining, serves as a unique statement of individuality. Having the right set of colors, works towards evoking the perfect feelings. It also works as a platform for your personality.
Ties are a significant source of style and character. In this case, a striped blue and a prominently stripped maroon tie goes well with a plain or faintly striped dress shirt. Be careful not to be too over zealous with straight patterns, otherwise your outfit will look too busy.
Always add some character to your suit by accessorizing your look. Accessories always add that extra pizzas to your outfit. It’s therefore a definite MUST DO. Lapel pins have become quite common around town (Nairobi) of late. However i find that many murder this style item by matching it with their tie or pocket square. Please don’t ever do this. Strive to maintain contrasts in your outfit. Pink is a good color to get you noticed, it “pops” out of your suit and calls out to anyone who notices. Red is equally a good complement to this. Why not try it out.
