Ben Sherman Grey Prince Of Wales Check Kings Fit Suit

grey checked suit abovetheankles 3

As we all know the main part of a man’s outfit is his trousers & jacket/coat. The suit you wear is obviously the most important thing, if your suit is quality, chances are you can get away with a cheap shirt. However, I doubt you could wear a Primark suit, a Rolex and a TM Lewin tie and look that good.

As many of you know I only just recently found out about Suit Direct and since then I have been shopping on their website non-stop. It’s a great site, not filled with top quality Prada & Boss suits but just normal suits like Ben Sherman and similar brands.

We all know Ben Sherman, they aren’t Tom Ford but they are definitely good quality products. I think it’s fair to say you can imagine that considering the Grey Prince Of Wales Check Kings Fit Suit is designed by them we can expect a certain level of quality in the suit.

Priced at £129.00 for the whole suit.. Totally worth it!

The ‘Kings Fit’ may not be a term you are used too but to simplify it for you, it’s basically a slim fit suit but not too slim. It’s generally designed for men moving up in their career and not really for an 18 year old starting out in suits. However if you want to be taken serious in your role, then I definitely advise this fit.

Single Breasted Two Button Jacket • Slim Fit • Notch Lapel • 4 Button Cuff • Slanted Pockets • Side Vents

Made from 100% wool this suit is guaranteed to last you 5-10 years. Most ‘wool’ suits you find in retails stores are generally a poly-wool blend, meaning a mixture of polyester and wool. What you can expect from a suit that’s 100% wool is a soft thick feel. Not ideal for summer but absolutely perfect for spring, autumn or winter.

The check design of this suit is perfect for standing out and looking dapper whether at the office or at a special occasion. The check design on the suit is quite large and clear, this design is often known as window pane. Window pane checked suits go amazingly well with bow ties and look perfect with some nice hi-shine oxford shoes.

Over Your Shirt & Under Your Suit – Ben Sherman

When it comes to wearing dressing smart and looking dapper, without a doubt you are going to need a few different pieces of clothing. It’s just not enough to have one £150 suit from M&S and a couple of ties. As humans we love change, how nice is it to see your girl change her hair colour? We love seeing different things and different styles, even if you own 5 suits but wear them all the same way people will get bored of your outfits. Here’s where jumpers come into play; people want to see that you can dress well with different styles. Jumpers can look amazing over a shirt with no tie and some dark jeans or they can be worn under your suit with your sharp shoes and perfect tie.

We know Ben Sherman, we expect quality from them and the Cotton V-Neck Jumper by Ben Sherman is one of my favourites. Finding a quality cotton jumper that won’t stretch or wear out is difficult nowadays, especially because you can easily buy a jumper from H&M for a tenner.

This jumper is made from a lightweight cotton, which will keep you cool in the summer and adds an extra layer to your outfit during the winter. The whole jumper has a ribbed hem and ribbed cuffs along with elbow patches made visible from stitching which contrasts the general stitching of the jumper.

V-neck jumpers are really not my thing, it doesn’t really suit my character, however with this jumper comboed with a shirt it looks great and even suits me. Whether you want to go for the casual weekend look or add to your work outfit, the Cotton V-Neck Jumper by Ben Sherman is perfect for you.
