There’s something psychological about power dressing, and with limitless tailoring options, donning a suit has never been more fun. Stand out from the crowd by embracing new colourways, play it cool with slouchy silhouettes, and don’t forget the thrill of a three-piece — sometimes, a matching vest just pulls an outfit together.

Read on for FQ’s favourite seasonal suiting, and don’t underestimate the advantage of tailoring to achieve that perfect fit.
