Men’s Style Pro x ModaMatters F/W 17 Capsule Collection

Introducing The Men’s Style Pro x ModaMatter F/W 17 Capsule Collection

Damn I’m Proud Of This

It’s my pleasure to present the Men’s Style Pro x ModaMatter F/W 17 Capsule Collection. Over the last few months, I’ve been working with Philly-based custom menswear brand ModaMatters to design a capsule collection.

Comprised of two suits, a blazer and a tuxedo this capsule collection spans the full range of an elevated tailored wardrobe. While coming up with the names for each piece, I was inspired by ModaMatters’ Italian heritage, so I looked back on my time in Italy when coming up with each name. 

When purchasing a piece from the collection, if you’re local to the Philadelphia-area, you can drop by the ModaMatters showroom at 19th & Market to enjoy being custom fitted. However; if you’re not local, all pieces are offered as ready-to-wear items that come with an alteration credit. Each piece is half-lined, with functional surgeon cuff on the jackets, side tabs waist adjusters on the trousers and natural shoulder (no padding).

Vecchio Tuxedo


Vecchio Tuxedo Men's Style Pro x ModaMatters 7

The Vecchio Tuxedo $649

When the idea for the collection first came about, the vision of this tuxedo immediately came to mind. As the menswear scene has gone through many waves over the last decade, the heighten blue tuxedo has been in a head-to-head battle with its darker counterpart — the midnight blue tuxedo. 

Since the time for sartorial maximalism is now, the royal blue tuxedo jacket is prime to be your go-to for your next formal occasion. To tone the look, we pair this punched up jacket with an open-weave black tuxedo pant.

Lido Tattersall Suit

Lido Tattersal Suit Men's Style Pro x ModaMatters 9
Lido Tattersall  (offered as 3-piece) $699
We’ve heard the phrase, “go to hell suit”, so I’ll consider the Lido Tattersall suit and go slightly to hell suit because the pattern isn’t too in your face. Once you’ve acquired those essential staple suits in navy, grey & charcoal, a punchy plaid like the Lido is the perfect addition to the collection.
This suit is offered as a three-piece, however; you can get the most mileage out of it by wearing the pieces as separates. Or, be bold and go all in and rock the entire suit.

Men's Style Pro x Lucca Navy Blazer 5
For years, I’ve searched for the perfect navy blue blazer. Finding a shade that’s not dark as midnight or light as washed denim is more difficult than one would believe. Luckily, I found it in a large birdseye fabric. 
Instead of making this blazer completely formal or completely casual, I went with a mix of Italian features that combines both world — like wide peak lapels, patch pockets, blonde horn buttons & kissing buttons on the sleeves. Essentially, this is the everyday navy blazer on sartorial steroids.

Fortezza Suit Men's Style Pro x ModaMatters 1
In my honest opinion, the most underrated suit color is charcoal. Most men’s style sites & publications suggest navy as the first suit in a man wardrobe (which I can agree with as well), but, a peak lapel charcoal should be the second suit in your collection.
This suit is my take on the “power suit”, however; this isn’t the power suit of the 80’s & 90’s. With no pinstriping or shoulder pads, this is my take on the modern power suit. And, if you’re not the tuxedo-type, this suit can double as your black tie kit.
