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 suit for the office or the weekend. I’m not talking about your daily driver, this is something you whip out for that special occasion.

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.


MJ Bale – Spire Charcoal Suit

This charcoal and green plaid will definately catch peoples eye across the bar – Check out the ‘Spire Charcoal Suit’ from MJ Bale.



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.

SS15: looking mint. Keep it fresh with pops of pastel hues with navy blue.

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.
