Jidenna’s summer jam ‘Classic Man’ is not just enigmatic of a man with a certain level of charisma. Rather it extends to man who has certain taste level as well. While Jidenna has certainly brought bespoke suiting to the awareness of a younger, urban audience. The trend towards more classic dressing has slowly been flooding the streets as well as consequently my Instagram timeline.
As a Millennial the bespoke trend is not surprising to me as we all are striving to create a certain level of individuality in efforts to establish our own personal brand. Thus having a suit cut and sewn to your precise measurements definitely fits the bill. However, the price tag of a bespoke suit is fairly hefty most suits start out around $3,000.
So how can a young gentlemen turn into a ‘Classic Man’ on a budget? One route is to buy your suit from a men’s clothier that offers tailoring services. My top picks are Jos. A Banks, J. Hilburn and SuitSupply. If you are able to splurge, SuitSupply does offer fully made-to-measure suits at the fraction of your neighborhood tailor. Additionally, you can buy a suit at your local department store and take your suit in for minor alterations.
A well-fitting suit can make you slimmer and is probably one of the best investments you can make as a man. Remember guys, there is nothing like a man in a suit. 😉 I’m just saying…
