EVEN AS THE CODES OF DRESSING EASE UP, THE SUIT REMAINS AT THE FOREFRONT OF STYLE.

For this season, Hermes gives its man a leaner, longer form with a double-breasted jacket that has a higher button stance, closing higher on the chest.Wool suit, cashmere sweater and cotton shirt, from Hermes.
Sometimes, a little detail is all you need to distinguish a suit from the many others out there. Contrast stitching makes this black wool version a simple standout.Wool suit and wool turtleneck, from Fendi.

In a relaxed yet form-skimming cut, this Berluti outfit refreshes seemingly traditional elements such as autumnal brown and a double-breasted silhouette.Wool suit, from Berluti. Cotton shirt, from Boss.
