Tailor-Made Swagger featuring Adam Lampell Look 1

June 29th, 2012

1. Brown Flannel Glenplaid

“Every guy should be experimenting with brown. If you’re concerned with trying out a new suit color, look for one that has a subtle hue that can pass as almost grey.

I needed a couple of suits that were warm enough for the harsh NYC winter, but I didn’t want bulky fabrics. If I worked outside all day, a 16oz fabric is something that I might be interested in. But I don’t, so I like flannels around 9oz.”

Bonus Tip: A light blue shirt pulls out the stripe in the glenplaid.

Bonus Tip II: There are ties for all seasons, like this flannel chalkstripe (cut from suiting cloth) for Fall/Winter.

Bonus Tip III: For smaller guys, sleeve length and trouser length are very important. Keeping them on the shorter side will help elongate the physique.
