This client asked us to help them pick out a versatile tie that would go with their Kipper Clothiers custom suit and shirt. We picked out a solid burgundy knit tie that can be used in formal and casual settings (and matches the inside lining of the blazer).
Beware the custom tailor who claims they cannot provide you with functional buttonholes. The most distinguishing feature of a custom suit are functional buttonholes. The quality of construction and intensive labor required to craft functional sleeve buttonholes are far superior to off the rack suits because it requires precise measurement and attention to detail.
Don’t feel like wearing traditional oxfords with your suit? Here are two great examples of what you can wear instead! On the left we have a pair of burgundy J.Crew Double Monk Straps, and on the right we have a pair of brown suede Gucci Horsebit Loafers. Which do you prefer?
