Last year we saw the Navy suit making waves in celebrity circles, but it was the King of celebrity suit wearers – Goldenballs himself, AKA David Beckham, that carried off the look better than anyone else.
If you want to look stylish, you could do a lot worse than taking a leaf out of good old Becks’ book. So let’s take a look at how he wears that navy suit right.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock or are completely new to the world of style, you have noticed slim is in when it comes to men’s suits. Now, it takes a certain level of dietary willpower to maintain a physique that can carry the slim fit, but as we all know, keeping fit is second nature to the world’s most famous (former) soccer player.
Yes, we know it’s a navy suit but it is possible to choose the wrong shade of navy. It’s a dark colour, but that doesn’t mean you should have to look closely to see if it’s black or blue.
You already know the importance of a black suit in your suit arsenal, but you really don’t need another. Beckham chooses just the right shade that is obviously navy and not the hue you need your specs to make out.
Did we say slim is in? This applies to suits as well as shirts and ties, too. A skinny tie is the only option for a slim fitted suit. If you have a fashion deathwish, then go down the novelty tie route. But as you can see, Becks chose the skinny tie option and, well, he rocks it, the suave so and so.
We love pocket squares here at Montagio and your choice of colour, pattern, and even fold is a great way to put your own sense of style into your look. We have to say, though, Beckham’s square fold and choice of white to match his shirt is accessorizing at its very best. Sometimes less is more, and by less, we don’t mean going commando. Simple colour and style choices give you that air of elegance.
You’ll probably hear a lot of huff and puff this year about how every navy suit needs a pair of tan shoes. We won’t argue with that; brown shoes really do look the business, but don’t worry if tan is not your thing. For that formal dark navy look, black leather can still nail it. But be sure to heed the golden rule of matching navy suits to shoes – that is, the darker the blue, the darker the brown.
Okay, we are biased, but you cannot get a navy suit that looks as good as Beckham’s straight off the rack. Nope, custom tailored is the only way. Far be it from us to toot our own horn but we know a thing or two about tailoring so why not BOOK YOUR FITTING, and we’ll help you recreate Beckham’s classy look.
