It’s no secret that I am obsessed with menswear. That is why I was ecstatic about teaming up with one of America’s favorite designers to share their 2014 Men’s fall suit lookbook. A new collection of wool suits, tweed blazers, and tuxedos that perfectly complement crisp fall weather, and autumn leaves. According to Bonobos, this collection was inspired by the early British rock invasion style, before they were all glam rock stars. Mick Jagger before he became known for his moves by jagger, was somewhat of a muse for the line. He was inspiring even as a wee lad. Other bands in their early days such as Kinks, Early Who, and Screaming Lord Sutch played a major role in their early days.
Holiday parties, meetings, dinner, there is a look for every occassion. The brand is a master of male wardrobe essentials with a twist, and it’s no surprise that their suit styles for the new collection are crisp and multifunctional.

“Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion,” says Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design.
Fenton’s simple suit tips to find the right fit:
- Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snugly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
- Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
- Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.
