We are rapidly approaching party season – have you got a strong plaid suit yet?

Summer brings opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and pick up a bolder summer suit for the office or the weekend. I’m not talking about ‘your off the rack‘ daily driver, or the made to measure suit you have from a mates wedding.

This is something you whip out for a bolder occasion – think showing off at the races, or the work Christmas party. Think of it as a gift to yourself – Here are my top 5 plaid suits keep you dressing like a boss. 💯

Institchu – Mr. Cummings

Step up with ‘Mr. Cummings’ from InStitchu – a bold blue charcoal and light windowpane design. Perfect for a boardroom or out at the races. Institchu makes affordable, high quality made to measure suits.

MJ Bale – Spire Charcoal Suit

This Navy plaid will definitely catch people’s eye across the bar – Check out the ‘Eiichi Suit’ from MJ Bale.

Herringbone

Navy plaid and fresh mint from Herringbone Sydney. Definitely, a fresh bold look while out and about.

At the office? Pair with a crisp white shirt and a navy tie – you’ll be doing your bosses job in no time.

T.M. Lewin

Loving this Levy Grey Check from T.M. Lewin – slim, one button, no fuss. Perfect when you have to get through a day in the office before going out that night.

Oliver Wicks

Probably my favourite of the lot – the Blue Check Shetland Tweed Suit from Oliver Wicks. You’ll have to order it online, but it definitely caught my eye.
