The phrase ‘blue is the new black’ may have become a little overused lately, however it remains truer than ever with blue never being more popular for men’s suits than it is now.

This versatile colour gives an elegant, modest look in spring, summer, autumn and winter and a classic navy suit is hard to beat.

Once you’ve mastered your suit style, it’s important to understand the cool shade that best suits you.

Be careful with the tonality of your blue suit. Electric or violent blues are best avoided, 2-3 shades lighter than Navy will work for most.

The spectrum ranges from bright Napoli blues, to lighter hues and of course darker midnight blues, which can be worn with almost anything.

Saying this, it’s a colour you can’t really go wrong with.

It’s a confidence colour so you know the drill, wear it like you mean it.

What’s more, we are now offering £100 off any suit when you spend £700 or more before the end of January.

Arrange a consultation with one of our experienced tailors as part of our free nationwide visiting service and get over those January blues with style and saving.
