The Right Suit: Style

Choosing The Right Suit: Style

Color / Pattern

  • For entry or mid-level positions, dark grey and navy suits are best.
  • Black is more formal and austere.
  • Solid colored suits are best. Subtle stripes are fine. Avoid flashy patterns.
  • Strong stripes convey authority and are appropriate for higher level positions.

Single vs. Double Breasted

Choose a 2 or 3 button single breasted suit. Double breasted suits will look sloppy
worn open, and are not considered main stream in the corporate climate.


  • 3-button suits will look best on a taller, slimmer man.
  • 2-Button suits will have a slimming effect on a shorter, stockier man.
