30 Ways to wear a Black Suit

We live in a world where everything is disposable, including clothing. Cheap manufacturing, often made in an unethical way means we aren’t making informed choices when it comes to our fashion.

An interesting read on ‘articles of style’ explains in great depth how this affects us as consumers: https://articlesofstyle.com/62475/the-true-cost-of-disposable-clothing/

Eco-age is trying to raise awareness of this growing problem. http://eco-age.com. They encourage that an item of clothing should be worn at least 30 times.

Every gent needs to have one well fitted  black suit so here’s my guide, worn in 30 different ways, on how you can achieve ‘sustainable style’.

  1. Classic black and white
  2. Black on black
  3. Add brown accessories
  4. As a dinner suit
  5. With Black tie and white jacket
  6. With a roll neck
  7. No tie
  8. As a full 3 piece
  9. With a co-ordinating colour jacket
  10. With jeans
  11. Add a Patterned shirt
  12. With a T shirt
  13. With fine knits
  14. Replace the jacket with an overcoat
  15. Add a denim shirt, smart casual
