New season suiting; The styles you need for Spring Racing

There are certain things about men’s suiting that never change. For instance a suit jacket should always fit just so, hugging the shoulders without any stretching or creasing as you move. And trousers should show just a hint of sock when you sit down.

On the other hand, the rigid rules of men’s formalwear do leave a little room to get creative – adding certain sartorial touches that nod to seasonal trends. So whether you’re dressing for the races or for work, we’re pleased to present our guide to suiting up this summer.

The most traditional of prints is back in a big way for Spring Summer 2015 and is cooler than ever. Forget geek chic, rocking checks shows you’re not afraid to stand out in a sea of plain suits. If you’re heading to the races, why not go all out with a clashing striped tie and bright pocket square for a slightly rebellious attitude?

If you don’t need to wear a suit to work (lucky you) then opting for a chino and blazer combo is a smart way to invest in formal pieces that you can wear over and over. For formal dress codes like the races, a smart pair of dress shoes, a shirt and bow-tie takes this look to the next level.

Our hot climate means lighter fabrics are a must for Aussie men. No one wants to be that guy sweating through his tailoring and pulling uncomfortably at his collar. Stick to cool shades of blue, grey, beige and tan in softer, weather-appropriate fabrics especially for all-day events like the races. Brighter colours can also be easily split it into separates, so try dressing down your formal blazer with a pair of chinos for a night out.

For the past few seasons, slim, streamlined suits have been a major trend in menswear. Generally cut with higher armholes and narrow sleeves, they offer a snug fit across the body for a crisper, more modern look. A word of warning though: if you’re trying out a slimmer suit, fit is really important. Don’t be tempted to choose a smaller size to achieve this look as stretching and pulling just look plain uncomfortable. Also, guys with larger frames should probably stick with more classic fits that have a little more breathing room!

  1. The curly haired coot in the blue suit on the front of the catalogue would scare the pants off the rugged timber-cutters in the mountains around here if this creature would appear out of the rainforest. Surely you could find a more masculine fellow than this. OH MAN, (pun intended) I would hate to see my menfolk looking like this. Where have our bronze ANZAC’s gone!!!

      • Seriously MYER! Why respond to such a ridiculous stereotyping comment. Idiots like this need to keep their outdated and ignorant opinions to themselves.

  2. Visited Myer melbourne today, was very interested in buying 2 x DomBagnato suits waited for approximately 30 minutes without no sales help from staff. You wonder why they lose sales to other retailers.

  3. Seriously Myer, thank you for allowing people to have a say. Especially when my nephew, Darryl Mills only wants to use your comments page as a forum to start a war with me. I was just having some fun and it must have hit a raw nerve. Our bronze ANZACS are rolling in their graves! They fought for us to have freedom of speech. Idiots indeed – very respectful. Man up Darryl!
