New Office-ready Suit & Sport Coat Must-Haves

Are you a gent who wakes up every morning, reaching for the next suit in your closet and heading out the door? Or maybe a suit is only for those important meetings, but you like to add a sport coat for a professional look? Either way, you’re in luck this season. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation this week, the suit is making a fashion comeback. It’s no longer just a basic we gents wear when we’re not allowed to wear jeans. Designers are actually focusing on that classic navy suit, and all the other great professional pieces that go along with it – making this the season to invest in some updates. Whether you go for a suit or a modern sport coat, these are items where quality really shows through. And they’re pieces you can re-wear for years to come, updating your shirt and tie, so they are worth every penny.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for after 5 suit picks for a variety of occasions. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

The blue suit has come back as not only a staple in every gent’s work wardrobe, but as an actual fashion statement this season. This Peter Millar offers a great summer alternative to the classic navy that is just as versatile, which brings a lighter look to the seasonless wool that is ideal for the warmer months. Pair this classic fit 2-button suit with a white ground blue windowpane pattern shirt and orange medallion pattern tie for a fresh looking daytime look. And don’t forget your white linen pocket square for the finishing touch.

There are work days when you really want to put your best foot forward – maybe you have an important meeting or presentation, or you’re meeting a new team. This classic fit dark grey wool Canali suit, with its subtle blue beaded stripe, is for those days. We frequently talk about the quality and superb fit of Canali clothing. It’s truly timeless – both in look, and in quality. You’ll be wearing this one for years, so it is absolutely worth the investment. Made in Italy, the wool fabric feels like silk and is comfortable even on warm days. Wear with a blue solid or Tattersall pattern spread collar shirt and blue tie. Don’t forget, if you have a Nordstrom near you, you can order it online for ease and convenience and bring it in for quick, free basic alterations. Of course, your local tailor can also ensure a perfect fit.

If you travel for business you need a suit that travels well – we don’t know anyone that loves to try to iron a suit in their hotel room. Brooks Brothers BrooksCool® 2-button suit is made of a wool, polyester and lycra blend fabric has crease recovery properties, is wonderfully lightweight and even water resistant. But don’t get us wrong – this suit feels great. The dark navy color will serve all you needs, from a daytime meeting to a more formal evening event –another ideal reason to pack this one for a work trip. The Regent model has narrower lapels and a trimmer pant leg for a modern look that is still a good fit for the classic gent.

J.Crew - Crosby Suit Jacket in Italian Chino
There’s nothing like the fresh, crisp look of a cotton suit for the warm days of summer. They are comfortable and just so dapper. J.Crew offers the ideal shade of tan. The all-cotton chino fabric comes from a well-known Italian mill, Larusmiani, that we respect very much. It is lightweight and has a softly brushed feel, so it looks more expensive than it is. The jacket has a modern silhouette with a bit more room than J.Crew’s contemporary fit to provide added comfort. The pant, which is sold separately (and can also be purchased through the ‘shop it’ button), is also a bit roomier in the waist and thigh. Wear them together or separately for a lot of summer options because the jacket and pants work just as well on their own. As a suit, add a plaid cotton tie and your favorite blue or white shirt.

A seersucker suit is another summer classic that has returned to the fashion runways. So, no, you don’t need to be a true Southern gentleman to look confident and appropriate, especially in Brooks Brothers’ interpretation. The Fitzgerald model is trimmer with narrower lapels and a narrower pant leg than the classic Brooks’ suit – but not a contemporary fit…great for most gents. The blue and white striped all-cotton seersucker is just what you need for those hot, sticky summer days. Wear it with a white shirt and a striped tie and you are good to go. If you want to step up your style game, pair it with a red striped bow tie. This is another suit where the jacket can be worn on its own as a sport coat with jeans or khaki’s. You get two for the price of one.

A pattern summer sport coat that goes with wool dress pants, jeans and khaki’s is not only useful, but a fun item to add to your work day wardrobe. Polo Ralph Lauren’s silk/linen blend tan glen plaid is one of our favorites. The modern “everyman” fit is great for most gents. This versatile jacket will work with almost everything in your warm weather wardrobe -from grey wool dress pants for a day of business meetings to your favorite jeans for a casual office day. Wear it with a blue or white shirt and navy tie to complete the look.

Hugo Boss’ soft and comfortable Italian virgin wool suit in this timeless shade of medium gray is a sleek addition to your wardrobe that is an easy go-to. The contemporary fit just adds to the polished look. It looks great with stripes or patterned dress shirts for work, since it’s such an even neutral. For a formal evening event, a solid white spread collar looks classic. And for the warmer weather, a medium brown shoe adds a nice seasonal touch to the outfit.

Every gent should have a navy blazer in his arsenal. Peter Millar’s classic fit, all-wool version is a perfect update - the narrower lapel, shorter length and modern 2-button stance is just right. A navy blazer satisfies every business need. With a charcoal wool pant, white shirt and tie, you are appropriately dressed for almost every business meeting. On a casual day, wear it with jeans, flat front or 5 pocket twill pants and a button up pattern shirt, to look polished and professional. If you already have a navy blazer, but can’t remember when you bought it…it is time to update it with this one.

A “solid pattern”, as we call it, is the workhorse of your suit wardrobe. What’s that? A pattern that reads like a solid. Hugo Boss’ micro grid navy pattern does just that so you can accessorize it with a variety of shirts and ties to create many options and looks. And that’s why we like it. It works with stripe, plaid and check dress shirts as well as solid and pattern ties. Wear a bolder pattern during the day and a French cuff white shirt in the evening. This contemporary fitting suit has all the bases covered.
