Why the navy suit will never go out of style

Every sartorially sophisticated gentleman will understand the importance of the navy suit. It’s that one wardrobe staple that every man, no matter whether he owns it for work or play, need to have; the piece that will fill the gaps in any suffering wardrobe and that can turn you into the sharpest man in the room simply by putting it on.

The trouble is, there are a lot of suits out there, so knowing which one to chance your luck on can be hard. Bespoke might cost you a bomb, but something too cheap is bound to result in broken seams left, right and centre. So, what is a gentleman to do?


Enter Hawes and Curtis, the brand who have been making waves in menswear since their establishment in 1913, and who have dressed everyone from the most famous faces in Hollywood, to the most notable members of the British Royal Family. From Cary Grant to the Duke of Windsor, gentlemen all over the world have been coming to Hawes & Curtis for the last 103 years – and that’s certainly not changing anytime soon.

For a brand as established as this, you’d be forgiven for thinking that they might rely on old classics to be the best-sellers. But Hawes & Curtis always step up their game and aren’t afraid to break boundaries, in the best possible way. For a brand of this stature, the navy suit is a staple; a transitional item that’s bound to tick all the right boxes, no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing. Hawes & Curtis release a new brand design every season, and this year we exhibited it at London Collections Men.


Trust us when we say, gentlemen, that Hawes & Curtis are the one of the most reliable tailors in the world, a brand that will keep every gentleman stylish throughout every walk of life, and that are guaranteed to take you from A-B with the type of sophistication that will make other gentlemen double take when they pass you on the street.
