10 Killer Suits For Men [2013 Edition]

Is there much to say about suits that hasn’t already been said? What the Little Black Dress is to women, a great suit is to men. You must own one. It must be a good one. And you must wear it with the pride, confidence, and complete awesomeness of men like Draper and Bond. Here are 10 best suits to add to your wardrobe.

Note: If the instance where these suits are no longer available we’ve provided links to up to date stockists of the brand. 


Suit #1 – Dior Homme Pinstriped Virgin Wool Suit
Ever have that feeling that your wardrobe is missing something, but you’re not sure what? It might be the Dior Homme Pinstriped Virgin Wool Suit, a seriously striking navy number with a pointed collar, tortoisehell buttons, and full lining. The best off the shelf Harvey Spectre suit.  (SHOP DIOR HOMME)


Suit #2 – Gucci Brera Slim-Fit Wool Suit

Every time I see something like Gucci’s Brera Slim-Fit Wool Suit, I’m reminded of how much I love grey suits. The best, really. It’s timeless and versatile, but a tad more interesting than your standard black number. This luxury take on the grey suit features a slim fit and classic two button design. (Price: $1,900.00 SHOP GUCCI SUITS)


Suit #3 – Suitsupply Sienna Grey Check

When in doubt, turn to Suitsupply. The Sienna Grey Check suit, like all that Suitsupply has to offer, is damn nice to look at (which, by extension, makes you damn nice to look at when you’re in it). Pair it with a crisp and subtle shirt for a chic look. Best value for money.  (Price: $639.00 BUY)


Suit #4 – Saint Laurent Micro Pied de Poule Suit

Saint Laurent is one of those incredible designers that seems to have fashion’s version of the Midas touch. Anything the label touches turns to gold, sartorially speaking. The simple charcoal Micro Pied de Poule Suit shouldn’t be anything special, but in the hands of Saint Laurent it is. For the suave Parisian men.  (Price: $2,019.00 SHOP SAINT LAURENT)


Suit #5 – Burberry London Slim-Fit Cotton And Linen-Blend Suit

The bold summer color of Burberry London’s Slim-Fit Cotton And Linen-Blend Suit is a knockout. It isn’t always easy to look sharp in the heat, but Burberry London makes it effortless with a breathable, blue and grey striped cotton and linen-blend. (Price: $995.00 BUY)


Suit #6 – Suitsupply Copenhagen Biege Plain
Beige gets a bad rap. Somewhere along the line it became synonymous with boring, but I think the Suitsupply Copenhagen Biege Plain suit proves it’s anything but. The Copenhagen is a casual, unstructured suit with a natural shoulder, slim notch lapel, and shorter jacket length.  (Price: $469.00 BUY)


Suit #7 – Kenzo Costume Elbow-Insert Single-Breasted Suit

Just a little daring, but still totally wearable. Anything that can strike that balance earns top marks in my book. Kenzo’s Costume Elbow-Insert Single-Breasted Suit is made from taupe wool with contrasting khaki-brown and white micro-print side and elbow inserts.  (Price: $1,023.00 SHOP KENZO)


Suit #8 – M.J. Bale Colmar Sharkskin Denim Suit

Don’t be fooled – there is no actual denim involved in the 100% Superfine Australian Merino Wool Colmar Sharkskin Denim Suit. The name is merely a nod to its groovy shade of blue that’s guaranteed to catch eyes, turn heads, and set a few hearts a-flutter. (Price: $1,295.00 SHOP MJ BALE)


Suit #9 – John Varvatos Double-Breasted Linen Suit

John Varvatos does not design for the wallflowers of the world. A Varvatos man is expected to have the best poise, panache, and confidence to pull of the four-button jacket and silk tuxedo striped trousers of the Double-Breasted Linen Suit.  (Price: $1,617.00 SHOP JOHN VARVATOS)


Suit #10 – J.Crew Ludlow Suit

Pick your flavor: British khaki, indigo, or grey. The Ludlow Suit from J.Crew can be found in whichever color suits your style, with classic features like a hand-finished collar, Irish linen from Baird McNutt, a full Bemberg lining, and a signature 2 ½” lapel.  (Price: $298.00 SHOP LUDLOW @ J.CREW)
