The Re-Emergence of the Pinstripe Suit

The pinstripe suit synonymous with bankers is experienceing a rennaissance. Everyone from the Wall Street powerhouse to the Brooklyn graphic design wiz can adopt this suit. Style-wise, vertical stripes can work on a variety of people since the lines create a slimming effect. But for taller people for example, the stripes can end up making you look longer and lankier than usual, perhaps negatively changing the silhouette. For slimmer builds, it can make you look too slim. It should also be noted that mid to closer stripes are more fashionable right now versus wider stripes.

Nano technology makes this luxury cloth both crease resistant and water / stain resistant.

As for the stripes themselves, it's important to understand how width influences the look. While thin stripes slim, wider stripes create a louder look that can actually add weight to your figure. Contact your design consultant to see what pattern suits you best.

The pinstripe suit is still a classic, but has evolved into a modern day "must have" suit for Spring Summer 2017.
