Looking the Part: Lawyer

Updated: Nov 11, 2019

Majority of our clientele opts to get bespoke suits for professional purposes. Inspired by this need, we are starting this mini series called "Looking the Part" to provide points to consider when getting a suit for select careers. Let us get started by tackling on the design cues of a lawyer.


As a practitioner of the law, you will want to look polished, dignified, and professional for any engagement in any location, be it at the firm or in the courtroom. There is little space for adding personal style at this point, but asserting how seriously you take the law and any case takes major precedence in this line of work. Simplicity and solids are the guiding principles in an attorney's suit.


Before we proceed, we would like to take the time to tell (or remind) everyone that fit is king, now more than ever, most especially in a professional setting. Like a knight's armor, a well-fitting suit asserts one's strong features and conceals weak points. Anything too loose or too tight, or a combination of both (which is the worst) will make one look like an amateur or unprepared... or both. When proceeding to have one made, always check a haberdashery's portfolio and observe how well their suits fit various clients. This will give you a good idea of how well their works would it you.
