The “Pur Suit” of style

 

Who said that New York, LA, Boston, and Miami, were the only American cities showing guys how to dress.  From “pop up” shop concept, to brick and mortar business, “Pur-Suit” is becoming the place for the next generation to look their best.

Earlier this week, I attended an event featuring the work from designers ShermanPreston.  From childhood friends to business partners, Sherman Joseph and Preston Williams bring their love for fashion back to their hometown of NY.  Speaking with both Sherman and Preston, they both agree that creating clothes with a modern silhouette gives their customers the best fit.

What do I wear?

Speaking to a few readers, a common question asked, is what do I wear?  I’m not a suit and tie guy, what do I wear to the office?  I’m on the road everyday, what do I wear throughout the week?  First thing you have to do, is say to yourself “who am I working for?”, “what type of people will I interact with today?”

If you  can wear denim or chinos to the office, dress it up.  It’s easier for you to dress down your look once you are dressed up, and to do that,simply add a blazer.  At your discretion, you can add a tie or pocket square. Remember, the accessories will jazz up your look.

If you have to wear a suit, make sure the tailoring is done to your specifications.  Don’t mis-represent yourself by having your trousers too long, or shirt extra baggy.  For the average guy who probably doesn’t have suits for different seasons, stick to the basics.  You should own “The BIG 3”, a black, navy, and grey suit.  With those three as your main suits, you can add your own style with different shirt and tie combinations.

Don’t make getting ready in the morning a chore, be confident, dress to impress, and keep it simple.  How do you or your significant other get ready for work?

Tired of off the rack suits? The bespoke menswear line ALEXANDER NASH gives their customers the ability to be part of their suit experience from choosing fabrics, to final fitting.

I met with head designer Alexander Sumner at his design studio in NYC to dig deeper into the man, and the brand.  As a flower logo represents Alexander Nash with its clean lines, and beautiful colors, bespoke suiting is defined by the skill of the tailor, the fit, and proportions.  Fashion, comes and goes every season, but at Alexander Nash they speak about style.  The right fitting garment opens up conversation as well as doors.

Clients proud to wear Alexander Nash clothing are  golfer Rory McIlroy, NY Knick Iman Schumpert, Barclays Premier League players Guy Demel & Winston Reed.

Looks like the tuxedo hasn’t been forgotten by these entertainers at the 2013 Emmy Awards.  Three different looks, all stylish and complete with a bowtie.
