Next Burgundy Suit

next burgundy suit

I know a few of you bought the burgundy loafers and brogues that I posted last week so I wanted to give you something that will really complete the outfit. Burgundy is a very special colour because it used to be very unique and rare to find someone in a burgundy suit, nowadays it’s pretty normal, although they still has that kind of wow factor about them. This Next suit is a standard slim fit suit with two buttons and twin back vents its pretty much what you would expect from Next.


This is not a suit of high quality so if you do buy it then expect “floating pieces of fluff” to get stuck to your suit jacket. Be sure to carry a lint roller in your bag or keep it at your desk. Made out of mostly polyester, Next states that this suit is machine washable but I personally would stay away from sticking your blazer or trousers in the washing machine.


This suit is really cheap at a retail price of £79 for the jacket and blazer and an extra £29 for the waistcoat its like the perfect back up suit. This burgundy suit perfectly matches the brogues and loafers I wrote about earlier, which if you bought one, you could have a full burgundy outfit for £100 – bargain!

Kin by John Lewis Mercer Knitted Tie

I’m pretty sure we all know what knitted ties are by now, thanks to knitted ties many people are now leaving their silk ties, which have now become “bland” and “normal”, left at the back of the draw. Knitted ties are different; they usually will attract some attention from average Joe’s. Their loosely woven look allows a nice and friendly persona.

Also known as the sock tie, the knitted ties usually have a blunt straight end as opposed to the conventional pointed end. Almost all knitted ties can be used both for smart and casual. They are usually made from silk but I prefer the polyester ones.

The Kin by John Lewis Mercer Knitted Tie comes in a variety of colours, from navy to black to gold and red. It’s only 5cm in width making it pretty much the perfect fit.

These are being sold by John Lewis for £19.50 – you could probably get them online cheaper maybe for £10 or so.
