As of late, pinstripe suits have often been overlooked in favour of single-breasted navy, charcoal grey, and black suits.
Sure, these solid colour suits can be worn at nearly every occasion, but a pinstripe suit is good for business occasions and formal events too. The power presence you get with wearing a navy or grey suit may also be achieved with a well-tailored pinstripe suit.
If you’re unfamiliar with pinstripe suits, these contain thin, vertical stripes called pinstripes that run in parallel across the width of a suit. These stripes can vary in width and colour. Among people dressed primarily in solid colour suits, you’d definitely stand out in a pinstripe suit. Naturally, there are different styles to consider as well – such as colour, stripe width, and contrasts, so all these should be taken into consideration when customising your suit.
To Stripe or Not to Stripe? To answer the question, if you already have at least a few solid colour suits in your wardrobe, then you should definitely consider expanding your options by getting a pinstripe suit for formal work events or other special occasions where you might want to stand out from the crowd. But if you’re planning on buying your first suit, then it’s best to go with something you can use in most occasions – i.e. a navy or black solid colour suit. Regardless of what you go for, it’s best to get your suit custom-tailored rather than purchasing it off-the-rack. Here’s why.
