Think of a brown suit as the charismatic underdog. Less serious than grey, more adventurous than navy, and a hell of of a lot friendlier than black, a coffee coloured two-piece is a sophisticated alternative that hits all right notes. A solid number nods to sharp mid century style, while a check gives off a dapper continental vibe. Handsome with blue, elegant with grey, and rakish with black, it’s surprisingly versatile for pairing. Brown looks good with more brown too – just make sure you mix up the shades and get some pattern in there somewhere. And if you want a pop of colour in your tie, go for deeper hues like mustard.
