The suit is something that has remained (relatively) unchanged for the last hundred years or so, and endures as a sartorial necessity, even in these increasingly casual times. Suits and tailoring have long been a core part of our offer, and we have produced them in all manner of varieties: linen suits, seersucker suits, double-breasted suits, checked suits, you name it. And while such suits are a joy to wear, and fully deserve a place in our wardrobes, they are perhaps more occasional, and as such are unlikely to find their way into regular rotation.
This is not the case, however, with the suits that have been enshrined in our Perennials collection. The goal of this newly launched collection is to bring together all of those pieces we deem to be true wardrobe staples and make it so that they will continue to be restocked, ensuring year-round availability. Or, as the tagline more succinctly puts it: here today, here tomorrow.
Just a handful of suits have made the cut, but those that have are guaranteed to be timelessly stylish, highly versatile, and hard-wearing. Any of these would make an ideal first suit – that initial step into the wonderful world of tailoring. Or, if your wardrobe is already overflowing with suits, then one from our Perennials collection will be perfect for every day, all-occasions wear.
Investing in a good suit.
It’s always worth repeating that every man needs at least one good suit, and that this should be an investment. A suit is not the type of garment that will be worn a handful of times, then simply discarded next season (though, of course, no garments should be like this). Rather, it is something that should endure, both in terms of the quality of its make, and the timelessness of its style. There’s no reason why a suit you buy today can’t be kept and cherished for decades to come, particularly when it’s of the sober, conservative variety. Select a navy or a charcoal two-piece that fits you well, and it will never look dated, passé, or anything other than supremely elegant. That’s the ethos behind every item in the Perennials collection.
