Top 10 Suits

Thursday, July 31, 2014 /

Buying a suit can be tricky, especially if you want something other than a stock standard black number. So bearing this in mind I have pulled together my Top 10. I’ve included the usual suspects – the neutrals including black, charcoal, grey and navy. I’ve also added in some pops of colour such as cobalt and mustard.

If anyone has seen a great red suit can you please let me know. It’s a key colour for Spring/Summer but I couldn’t find any that really stood out for me (I may be looking in the wrong place).

So here they are. Which one works for you?
