A Brief Note: Statement Suits

Every man has distinct preferences when it comes to personal style, but I stand by every man needing to have at least one statement suit in his wardrobe. 

Most statement suits like the one exhibited in the photographs above are uniquely produced to make some kind of statement. Whether that lies within wanting to stand out from the crowd, or wanting to set focus on another article of clothing featured, the truth of the matter is all reasons are valid as long it's all focused on pleasure, and panache. 

Statement suits have been very prominent this year especially during worldly fashion events like Pitti Uomo, where we see men fully owning the particular styles they've chosen to wear. There's nothing to be shy away from. It's all about finding ways to exude your likings through styling, and. color scheme choice. Take the single breasted suit showcased above for example: you can take a maximalist approach by throwing in a bold patterned camp collared shirt to match the loudness of the suit, or you can take a minimalist approach by pairing with a club collared white linen shirt. It's your taste.
