Weekend Wear: A Vibrant Suit to Tackle Grey Days

Show the world you aren’t afraid of colour by wearing a suit in an unexpected shade. Green may seem daunting at first, but it’s a versatile colour that most men can pull off  — pick accessories in navies, blacks, and whites to help ground the ensemble and keep you looking stylish.


1. HUGO Slim-Fit Patterned Green Suit, price upon request

This is the suit for the man who isn’t looking to play it safe. The rich green colour pops against the patterned fabric — vibrant without being overwhelming. The slim fit and flat-front trousers are modern and versatile enough to dress up or down.

2. Louis Vuitton Dress Shirt, $840

Let the green suit shine by pairing it with an understated crisp white dress shirt. Skip the tie and simply button it up to show off the polished accent studs in the spread collar and cuffs.

3. Paul Smith Cotton Pocket Square, $60 at Nordstrom

Add a painterly accent with this pocket square by Paul Smith, which mixes a photorealistic palm print with an abstract version of the same image.

4. Burberry Reversible Check and Leather Belt, $500

This reversible belt from Burberry gives you the option of picking basic black or accessorizing with a subtle navy and black version of the brand’s classic check. The hand-painted edges are a refined finishing touch.

5. Pantherella Bird’s Eye Stripe Merino Wool Socks, $30 at Nordstrom

Tie the colours of the outfit together with a smart sock. These are handcrafted from breathable merino wool in a textured bird’s eye stripe pattern.

6. Dior Homme Black Leather Loafer, price upon request

Finish off your look by slipping on a pair of loafers. Dressier than a penny loafer, they still bring a more laidback vibe to an outfit than a traditional dress shoe.
