Stella McCartney’s fresh twist on a tailoring classic will breathe new life into your 9-to-5 wardrobe.
Prince of Wales is one of the oldest, and most often used, patterns in menswear, so it takes a designer with a particular vision to breathe new life into it. This season, Stella McCartney is just that designer. Her recently-launched menswear line is a buffet of bright patterns and fresh colors, all executed in classic menswear silhouettes peppered with some ’70s flair. This suit takes advantage of her unique approach to men’s clothing, injecting the pattern with a hit of lemon yellow that takes it out ordinary territory, but still keeps it appropriate for the boardroom.
How to Wear It
A properly tailored suit like this is a no-brainer for the office. It also happens to go with every solid shirt-and-tie combo you already own (but if you want to get the most impact, we say pair it with a light blue collared shirt). Thanks to a neutral gray ground, the suit pattern actually pairs well with most menswear staples, from office-appropriate layers to off-duty ones like a striped T-shirt. As much as this suit will impress upper management, it’s also an ideal option for your weekends when worn with tonal gray sneakers.
