Recently, I had the opportunity to host an event at the Suit Supply in Georgetown. The event was to discuss picking out a variety of looks to take you through the holiday season. Naturally, I needed a suit for the occasion so that meant I needed a great Suit Supply suit.

You know me. I love to rock a tailored look so the chance to shop at a store known for suiting was right up my alley. I have been a fan of the Dutch based retailer since it opened the Suit Supply in Georgetown in 2012. Since then I’ve picked up several suits and have even had a chance to experience the rollout of their newest collections during New York Fashion Week. Last year I was on hand when they opened their second store in the Washington area in Tyson’s Galleria. And now to host an event in their store was truly an honor.

The chance to pick out a new suit could not have come at a better time. I was in need of a navy suit. My old suit had once again become worn after being patched way too many times. You could almost call it the Frankenstein of suits. It was time to let it go.

In addition to the bold patterns of suits each season, Suit Supply is great about having a nice selection of foundational pieces. These wardrobe starter pieces are ideal when you need that classic go to piece or it’s the first suit in your wardrobe. For the geek set, many of these suits are made of super 110 wool which means they are perfect for everday suiting. And they can be worn almost year round.

A navy suit is always a great choice and should be a staple in a guy’s wardrobe. It’s the perfect interview suit but still lives up to the challenge of more dressier occasions. I proved that for my event at the Suit Supply in Georgetown. I paired with a paisley tie and though it looked great. It would stand out and be a welcomed changed for all the green and red traditionally seen this time of year at most holiday get-togethers.

My navy suit is the Napoli fit from Suit Supply’s Blue Line collection. This Blue Line features the starter foundation pieces that I previously talked about. Just because it’s their entry level suit, doesn’t mean they skimp on details. for instance, my suit has working sleeve buttons, a feature not typically available on suits from other brands at this price point. I love this types of detail for my new suit. So how did I do on my suit choice? I think I hit it out of the park!
