Bankers no longer dress like Michael Douglas in his Wall Street period, the outfit has become more classic.
The suit will be discreet and plain, most often with variations of blue and gray in a 100% woolen fabric in super 120’s - 130’s. Tend rather to choose an all-season cloth, like the "Four Seasons" from Loro Piana or "Royal Mile" from Holland & Sherry. As for the jacket, it will remain with 2 buttons, 2 slits on the back as well as a classic shaped collar like the classic notched or the notched “smalto”. Click here to see more.
Obviously, depending on your post development, your choices may be more daring in terms of style and cut. Why not a magnificent 4-button double-breasted suit with a wide peak lapel collar and topstitching on all the seams of the jacket, or even a patterned fabric (houndstooth, Prince of Wales, stripes).
If you opt for a conservative style, the little fantasy will be to garnish your jacket with a touch of elegance with a colorful pocket square from Simonnot Godard with a silk tie. Make sure that these two accessories are not of the same fabric - the rule is that they remain the same tone.
The shirt will be white or sky blue, in pure cotton from Thomas Mason (avoid mixed composition materials or synthetic cloths which, over a day, will not be the most comfortable), so you can use them in all kinds of combinations between suit, shirt and tie.
Fabrics to recommend:
If you wear a classic white shirt, we recommend elegant pocket squares from Simonnot Godard in white cotton in subtly woven patterns. As for the tie, try to harmonize it with the tones of the suit. You can play with the fabric and, in winter, swap your classic silk tie for one made of wool or cotton. Check our accessories.
