Style Tip: Rock The Deconstructed Blue Linen Suit

In your search for online custom menswear e-tailors, I’m sure you’ve seen the name Tailor 4 Less. Don’t let the name throw you off, T4L might be one of the most comprehensive e-tailors you’ll find on the web that will leave some cash in your pocket. Recently, the brand announced that they’ll be offering unstructured suits (unlined & less/no padding in the shoulders) — so I decided to take a stab at in. Before we get deep into this feature, this is actually my second suit from the brand, however; I’ve never dedicated a feature to them. After seeing much growth in the brand, the improved quality of the product and the implementation of unstructured suits — it was time for a full feature.

The beauty of rocking an unstructured suit is that the jacket takes on the natural drape of the body — which means no more boxy shoulders. Shape alone isn’t the only reason to opt for an unstructured suit jacket. Think of the basic notion of functionality. The reason you’ve chosen a linen fabric is because you want a suit that is breathable & light. Jacket lining which are usually made of polyester, viscose, silk or sometimes cotton trap heat — defeating the purpose of the light, linen fabric.

Style Tips & Notes

  • Remember linen wrinkles, so don’t stress yourself out
  • An unstructured jacket contours to the nature slope of your shoulders for a natural look
  • Brass buttons can be heavy, so check the weight before adding them to your jacket. You don’t want it to weigh down the button area of your jacket
  • This suit is perfect for three-piece wear in the summer. If rocking three-piece suits is your thing, but, the sweltering summer temps say otherwise — you can get away with rocking a three-piece with an unstructured jacket
  • Adding cuffs to your pants will give them some weight and structure, so add them (if you like)

Linen has a less formal quality that most fabrics, that’s why most people think vacation when linen suiting is on the table. Add an unstructured suit jacket to the equation and now your linen suit can play double duty as a true leisure kit. Dig through some clothes and pull out your favorite tanks, polos and sneakers and pair it with this suit. The overall tailored structure of the suit will dress up your casual pieces and still keep you cool

Style Tips & Notes

  • White sneakers always pair well with blue suiting
  • If you plan to pair a tank or a polo shirt with this linen suit, tuck it in
  • Rocking sneakers with a suit isn’t your cup of tea? Opt for a pair of loafers

    Love the idea of wearing a contrasting waistcoat. Instead of having a matching vest get lost in the suit, this is a great way to make a statement!

    Dam bro you make wearing suits look so easy. I can’t tell you the last time i wore a suit i think maybe 5th grade lol. After checking out these pics i sort of understand the layering technique a lot better along with the mixing of solids with pattern. I guess you could even at a print or two to the suit look if you wanted. A lot to think about So inspired!

    My blog-

  • I’ve heard some mixed review of T4L, what’s your opinion? I like how they look so I’m asking more about the quality of fabric and accuracy of the online fit and feel and those aspects. Thanks!
