Canali | The suit company changing the game.
Good morning you lovely people, I hope you’re all having a fantastic week. I am here today on this cold British morning to feature a suit company that are winning in this game. Now for this post, it’s going to be a little different to what I usually do. This because of its fit into three parts, they include; Canali, the suit company changing the game, how to properly rock a suit and lastly a suit wearing cheat sheet every man needs to know.
“A suit, it’s not just an outfit, it’s a statement. The suit is, and always will be the sexiest way a man can present himself. period.”
Canali – The suit company changing the game.
There I was doing some weekend browsing, trying to find a particular type of suit, it was a style I had recently seen a movie and thought “James, we are going to try that look” I looked high and low trying to find it…one With no luck. However, I then found Canali, a company whose suits yes are more expensive than your average suit, but for a damn good reason.
Naturally being a fashion blogger and influencer I make sure that the clothes that are being reviewed by myself and the outfits I wear don’t just look good but last. No one likes to spend that hard earned cash only for the outfit to break down. In particular, a suit, it’s this biggest mistake you can make ‘buying a cheap suit’. The last thing you want to happen is for you to be out on a dinner date or a business meeting and the sleeve of your suit has just decided to go its own way. If you buy a suit, you buy from a company with a heritage, a company who like Canali have recommendations from great men like; Michael Douglas, Paul McGinley, Giovanni Gastel and so much more.
How to properly rock a suit with Canali
“You don’t wear a suit to fit in you wear a suit to stand out, so my god straighten that back”
Now to really understand the ethos and creative mind behind Canali I needed to get inside their head I wanted to know some of the best tips they have for rocking a good suit. As a leading suit company in this industry I expected wisdom, knowledge and a sense of sophistication and that’s exactly what I got.
Expand your horizons: As a company with a heritage, over 1800 employees its safe to say they know what they’re talking about, so don’t always go with the safest option, expand your look, try a new style and keep it fresh.
Measure and tailor: A suit is made to measure, its made to fit and create perfection, Canali are so passionate about the fit of a suit they actually hold events to get men down there to show them, a suit is not a half-arsed job.
Care for your suits: A suit is not a one-time thing, it’s not something you can just wear once and think, off to the charity store you go. You wear a suit with pride, you care for your suits and they will care for you.
Suit Wearing Cheat sheet:
Let’s be honest here, wearing a suit can sometimes be daunting, there are so many rules, hidden rules and secret rules when wearing a suit, you don’t know which to follow. So I teamed up with Canali to share what we think are the best secrets to know.
1. The width of the tie should match the width of the lapel.
2. In general, thin lapels are more modern. Wide lapels are more old-school, Mad Men style.
3. A pocket square adds an extra level of polish, but make sure it doesn’t match your tie in either pattern or fabric choice.
4. When buying an off-the-rack suit, the number one thing to check is how the shoulders fit.
5. A collar gap between your jacket’s lapels and your shirt’s collar can signify an ill-fitting jacket
Now that’s just five tips if you want to know more head over to Canali
