With a silky smooth finish and a fine basket weave texture that creates just the right amount of sheen, a sharkskin suit is considered by some to be the ultimate when it comes to an elegant suit. Available from Lauren by Ralph Lauren Mens, Tommy Hilfiger, and Alfani, if a man can own only one suit, he should make it sharkskin.
A grey sharkskin suit is probably seen more often than any other color and is a good choice because it looks cool and sleek wherever it’s worn. Choose a classic fit suit with double pleated pants, a zip and button fly, and a two-button jacket with notched lapel and flap pockets. Any color shirt will look great with this neutral color, so stay professional with a white or light blue shirt and patterned tie at the office, and change to a black shirt and solid color tie for a great evening look.
Another neutral color option is a tan sharkskin suit, a color that looks good with a blue or light green shirt and small print tie. With the signature two-button front jacket with flap pockets and side vents worn with matching slacks, add additional interest to this suit with a pair of shiny brown soft calf leather oxfords.
Some men like to wear a slim-fit suit because it’s designed to look extra trim and tailored, and shows off the physique more than a regular cut suit. Choose a taupe color with a two-button jacket with side vents and flat-front pants with a zippered fly. The darker color goes great with a black or navy colored shirt, a light color tie, and black or brown patent loafers.
Need a big and tall suit? Why not make it fully lined sharkskin in an interesting color like olive? Pick a jacket with a two-button front and center vent, and slacks that are designed with built-in shape retention, and a fabric with a slight stretch that is light and wrinkle resistant. Wear an olive suit with a white shirt and a peach color tie for an extra dose of style.
