Five Ways To Wear | The Navy Suit

July 23, 2019



welcome back to mr. Porter calm and our series five ways to wear today for this back to work issue I would like to take a very classic navy suit and show you five ways to mix it up hope you enjoy this first look I've gone for quite a relaxed feel we started off here with this j.crew Madras quite Aussie vivid check shirt it's complemented by the the Navy Drake's knitted tie and quite a relaxed desert boot by a PC here in the leather as opposed to the suede I think it just gives a nice relaxed overall feel perfect for quite a young contemporary guy who may works in a creative industry for this look we've gone for a t-shirt underneath the suit very easy and works with a number of versions you can go for a plain white t-shirt you could go for a more graphic stripe here are actually gone for this polka dot version by the designer our legacy anything works really well kind of giving it a touch of class with this nice long Van Patten toe sneaker and I think overall it's just you know very easy maybe you know if you're feeling you don't want to go too smart for a summer wedding something like that and you can go with or without pockets where it's kind of optional this look is definitely quite a fashion II look I've popped it here with this Dolce Chris white shirt one underneath this wonderful Valentino tartan jumper although it's quite graphic is still quite subtle so you just get the splash underneath the the jacket there and I kind of complement it with this camouflage Valentino trainer which again is quite subtle even though it's it's quite a graphic item because it still leaves you with this overall and a navy feel to the look which I think works really well so this is definitely the most formal end of the navy suit spectrum I've popped it here with this washed pink Richard James shirt and here I've used this soul coat I wish I love to works really well with the pink and I think both of those complement the double monk brown shoe by the design John Lobb so I think perfect really for any occasion where you you need to feel elegant and smart and pretty formal so this last look I have opted for a roll neck which I think a lot of guys like especially in winter keeps you nice and warm and I think it was also a great option if you know you're going out in the evening but you just want to change but you don't want to kind of take a whole new look you just kind of have to pack a roll neck in the new pair of shoes and and weathers with the same suit going to have this really nice pair of chelsea boots by Alexander McQueen and this wonderful kind of brownie kind of Kashmir roll neck by Loro Piana I think if you just want that extra twist and use but use a nice kind of graphic pocket square here you have five different ways to approach the Navy suit I think one little tip I would give is the use of a Turner which I have opted for on three of the looks just gives it a slightly more contemporary youthful feel i hope it's given you some food for thought and you've enjoyed this week's five ways to wear

    cool idea but I didn't like the styles

  • Reply Walter Sickinger July 23, 2019 at 11:09 am

    The suit doesn't fit…both the jacket and the sleeves are much too short. The collar gapes….etc etc etc…The outfits themselves are ridiculous. If this is the best you can do …find another job.

    Yes but how do I wear a navy suit for war?

  • Reply Alexandre July 23, 2019 at 11:09 am

    🤮 How can it be so bad on both fit, colours & patterns combination, and style…
    Where to begin, the sleeves are too short, same for the jacket, pants should be trimmed, sleeves are also too wide….
    Regarding the colours, the suit is not even a navy but more of a midnight blue, so please don't wear dark brown shoes.
    The turtleneck should have been of a lighter shade to create a more interesting visual contrast, cream would have looked so much better.
    Why using a burgundy pocket square with a midnight blue suit… Dark on Dark… Same comments for the dark sweater and polka dot t-shirt, anyhow who the f*** wears a t-shirt with a suit? And why are you making him wear sneakers with a suit, doesn't this poor guy deserve proper shoes with his suit?
    The Creative meeting style just made me laugh, first of all don't wear that shirt unless your mom is still buying your clothes, second the poor guy just look like a clown… And please don't wear check "tartan like" shirts with what is supposed to be a formal suit…
    For a creative or casual look why not try odd pants instead with the navy blue jacket, prefer lighter or mid grey to create contrast again.
    Whoever you are, hope you can find a new job.

    There's only the right way to wear a navy suit (or any suit)…with a button-down shirt and dress shoes. No sneakers, no t-shirts,no polos, no turtle-necks, no no socks and for someone's sake NO SNEAKERS!
