A suit maketh the man. A suit purchased on the internet and it fitteth, make the legend. I’m a soul willing to throw caution into the wind and try my hand at buying a suit online. So much so, I have hunted out the best looking suits from a number of premium online retailers.Don’t forget to check out the 2013 best suits for men edition.

Killer Suit #1 – 
J. Crew Ludlow Suit
Not 3 buttons…WTF?! When did these start looking so good? The J.

Killer Suit #2 – Tiger Of Sweden Dark Blue Edvin Suit
Another great addition to the slim-cut suit craze, the Dark Blue Edvin Suit by Tiger Of Sweden is made from deep navy wool with a viscose lining. The tapered trousers have slash pockets at the hips and bound pockets at rear, and the jacket is a single-breasted blazer with a notched lapel, padded shoulders, and two button closure.  (Price: $795.00 BUY)

Killer Suit #3 – Gucci Marseille Slim-Fit Wool Suit
Sometimes you need to take a break from black. The Marseille Slim-Fit Wool Suit fits the bill perfectly when it’s time to take that break – it’s a beautiful Prince of Wales check half-canvassed suit that mixes the long heritage of the pattern with the more modern style of its slim fit.  (Price: £1,670.00 BUY)

Gucci knocks it out of the park again with the Brera Micro-Stripe Suit. The navy wool with notch lapels, single vent, chest pockets, flapped front pockets, and slim-leg trousers will have you looking sharp anywhere you wear it.  (Price: from $1,300.00 BUY)
