Bold (Winter) Suiting: The 70’s Inspired Brown Checked Suit

StudioSuits Bold Plaid Suit Review On Men's Style Pro

The 70’s was known for many things, one of those things being bold style. Bell bottom pants, falcon wing-sized shirt collars and or course the exploded plaid suit. We’re not talking about the subdued shadow plaid suit that you may have inherited from your grandfather that’s come full-circle today. We’re talking about the beefy patterned suit that all groovy cats were rockin’. Ok, that was cheesy, but, you get my point. We’ll call this the non-conformist suit.

The suit in this feature is a custom piece that I designed via StudioSuits.com.

There’s one thing you must have to rock a bold plaid suit- BALLS! I mean Confidence! In the grand scheme of menswear garb, this style of suit is the sartorial equivalent of peacock’s plumage. You’re going to turn a few heads and of course, it wasn’t unintentional. Not for the style novice, there are some key things you’ll want to consider before going full American Gigolo. 

Style Tips For Bold Plaid Winter Suiting

  • Winter Weight Fabric: this type of bold pattern needs a nappy fabric to add some depth. Your typical four season worsted-wool suits are too flat, giving the pattern of your suit a dizzying effect. When a pattern is check on check, with no real blank color spacing– your heavy-duty wools are the best option to subdue the look
  • Best As Separates: even if you have the brass ones to rock the full suit, you’ll get my juice out of this look if the pieces are worn as separates. Pair the jacket with you favorite pair of dark wash jeans and a pair of broken in longwing Oxfords or a captoe boot. The pants can be worn with just about anything. Think about pairing them with a turtleneck sweater and leather jacket for a mod-inspired look
  • Rich Shirting : As with this particular look, a deep & rich colored shirt is the perfect complement to your bold suit.  Use your shirt as the ground agent of this look. Many brands release brushed cotton shirts during the cold months and they would be the perfect pairing with this type of suit. Brush cotton shirt feel like flannel, but, aren’t irritating to the skin and are often in richer colors
  • Have Fun: If you’re wearing this suit, but, are taking yourself too seriously — you’re doing the suit a disservice
