What blue suit do I wear to work? What blue suit should I get for my wedding? Which blue suit is best for a man with a slim build? These are all questions that we get asked at some point, and they all have the same answer: blue suits. Blue suits can be worn in both professional and casual settings, making them versatile enough to fit your wardrobe needs. Whether you’re looking for something classic or edgy, there’s a blue suit out there just waiting for you!
What is a blue suit?
A blue suit is any suit that has blue as its primary color. This can be achieved in a few different ways, but the end result is looking suave and sophisticated – no matter what your body type may be.
From dark navy blue to sky blue to light pastel blue (we’ll touch on this one later), there are endless options for you! Which fabric should I choose? The most important question of all: which fabric do I go with? We recommend starting off with at least two blue suits so you have an option for work and another option for more casual settings like weddings or parties.
A cotton blend will give you just enough stretch without compromising quality while also providing breathability throughout the day; if it’s cold out, a blue wool suit will keep you warm and stylish. For a cotton blend blue suit, we recommend the MTM Solid Navy Blue Modern Fit Suit from Indochino. The fabric is lightweight with just enough stretch for all-day comfort – plus it looks sleek!
For those who want to go full silk (or close to it), our Italian made blue suits are an excellent option. We’ve partnered up with one of the best luxury tailors in Italy so that they can help us design these beauties; as such, each fabric has been handpicked by their master tailor himself.
Why should you wear a blue suit?
Aside from the endless blue suit possibilities, there are a few other reasons why you should consider investing in one.
A blue suit is perfect for any profession where it’s important to dress with respect and professionalism – think lawyers or doctors! In fact, many executives wear blue suits on a regular basis because they know that blue represents trustworthiness and stability. Even if your job doesn’t require you to wear a blue suit every day, having one around will come in handy when an unexpected formal occasion pops up!
In addition to being professional appropriate, blue suits look great at weddings (for groomsmen) or funerals (as pallbearers). If you’re looking for something more casual but still refined enough for most settings, blue suits are perfect.
If you’re planning on dressing up in a blue suit for your big day, we recommend opting in for either blue wool or blue silk because it’s more durable and will hold its shape better than cotton (which can wrinkle easily).
For the best of both worlds, you can mix it up by having different people wear different fabrics! If groomsmen want to go with luxurious Italian fabric while the groom goes classic with super 120s English wool – all blue suits look great together when everyone is dressed appropriately. Which blue suit is best for men who have an athletic build? We’ve already touched upon how slim-fitting blue suits look flattering regardless of body.
Tips for buying the perfect blue suit
Now that you know blue suits are appropriate for every occasion, it’s time to buy one! Here’s a few tips on how you can make sure your blue suit is exactly what you want.
Start with the right blue – there are so many shades of blue out there, but choosing the best shade depends entirely on your preference and personality.
If you’re looking for something classic that will never go out of style, navy or dark blue is always an option worth considering; however if edginess is more your thing then brighter colors like sky blue could be perfect.
Then again, greenish-blue hues might work well if you have brown/hazel eyes since they’ll pick up in perfectly against your irises (a blue suit with blue eyes is a match made in heaven).
Know your measurements – blue suits look best when they’re fitted to perfection, but how do you know which size will fit you perfectly? Start by taking accurate body measurements (chest and waist) then compare them to the size chart provided on the website because it’s different for each brand. Measurements should be taken while wearing whatever underwear/undershirt you plan on wearing underneath; this ensures that none of your clothes affect what we measure since we need to take into account extra fabric around your midsection as well as any bulky dress shirts.
Which blue is best: navy or dark blue? For those who want something classic that will never go out of style on any social occasion then navy or dark blue is always an option worth considering; however if edginess is more your thing then brighter colors like sky blue could be perfect.
