Fall Preview | The Everyday Grey Suit

We may not want to admit it, but, fall is just around the corner. Here in the northeast, we’ve woken up to a few days with that slight crisp in the air that we wouldn’t expect until mid-September. Over the years, many menswear magazines have been preaching navy blue and plaid wool suits for the fall, but, I predict this to be the year (or at least the Autumn) of the Everyday Grey Suit.

If you are scratching your head in an attempt to figure out, “what constitutes a suit an everyday grey suit,” here’s a few tips that can help point you in the right direction. As oppose to your charcoal color fabric, the everyday grey Yorkshire wool is slightly lighter without taking the leap into summer weights and tones. When comparing the everyday grey to its summer counterpart, you will see that the summer grey is much lighter in weight and color. Keep those summer greys stored away for warm weather wedding or any gatherings.

The Details On This Everyday Grey Suit:

  • Custom Yorkshire Wool Everyday Grey Suit by Oliver Wicks (Formerly Dragon Inside).
  • Jacket is half-lined. This feature making is more breathable and drapes to your natural body shape.
  • Swapped out the traditional black buttons for the corozo brown.
  • No belt loops, but, side tabs were added.
  • 2 inch cuffs on pants.
  • Peak lapel.
  • Hacking pockets with added ticket pocket.
  • Purple half lining in jacket.
  • Rubberized waistband to keep your shirt tucked in (no riding up).
  • (When getting a suit custom-made, these are my usual specifications. )

Style Benefits of the Everyday Grey Suit

  • Most shirt colors and patterns complete it.
  • Since the suit isn’t too light or too dark (in regard to color), you’ll have the option of rocking a pair of black or brown shoes.
  • I’ve never been a fan of black buttons, so depending on your personal preference, you need to decide on what button color you want.
  • Swap out your shoes, shirt and tie for a complete new combo, your suit will be perceived as a completely different outfit.
  • Ideal shirt colors are whites, yellows, pinks, blues and purples.
  • This particular grey gives off a very British rake vibe. Women dig it (ps. my photographer approves).
  • The fabric is flatter than other wools, which gives it less visible texture. You’ll be able to add more textured ties and pattern shirts with this suit and not feel overwhelmed.

  • What is a “rubbed waitstband?” I’ve never heard of that and am about to get my own Everyday Grey from DI and am curious. That said, I love the brown buttons, I’ll have to do the same!

  • Sabir, I have to say there seems to be something off with your Dragon Inside suits. Ignoring the linen one, this suit and your blue DB suit seems to have odd wrinkling in the chest and mid-upper torso area. In this suit it shows up either with your jacket buttoned or buttoned. I wonder if this is just an issue your chest and waist measurements being too tight or is there something else going on. This is surprising to me as DI is supposed to to be full canvased and I would not expect odd wrinkling in those areas. When you compare this to your Imparali (which is also full-canvased?) and even your Indochinos, the drape is much cleaner with no wrinkles.

    Looking for alternatives to Indochino right now as even though my jacket/blazers fit great, they can’t fit my pants properly due to my prominent “perky” seat. Am considering DI, but the wrinkles I see are concerning.

    • Hi Doug,

      I would see the wrinkling in my DI suit is mainly from high armholes and my changing body type from when I order the piece to when they are delivered. I want to see from ordering the DB suit to when I received it, I put on a solid 10 lbs of muscle and it changes the fit. One of the things you have to realize when working with a completely online MTM brand like DI or Indochino, so of the fits will not be 100%, but, are damn close. When I got the imparali suit, I actually was measured and altered at their showroom.

      • Agree with everything you said. Online MTM is nearly impossible to nail correctly the first time around. It’s taken me a couple iterations with Indochino to get my jacket fit right. That said, if you are working out more now, I’ll be weary about Indochino fitting pants for an athletic seat. It just wasn’t possible for me as they only accommodate for a single shape in the seat. For your DI suit, I’ll be curious to know if the wrinkles are still there when you hang your jacket on a proper hanger. For all of my better quality jackets, I never need to press/iron that area.

  • Sabir,

    Great looking suit! Question on the buttons. I think the brown really does look better but don’t see any option on the DI website to change the buttons. Where did you choose that option? Thanks

    • Hey Sean,

      You can let them know that you would like to change the buttons. I think there is a comment section at the end of the purchase screen. Let them know it was per my recommendation.

      Best,

      Sabir
