The Ludlow suit is a classic from J.Crew. This version of the Ludlow comes in fine houndstooth Italian wool that originates from a family-owned mill that’s been in business since the 13th century.

Best Suit #4 – Topman Charcoal Grey Checked Suit

Topman is a go-to choice for affordable suits.

Consider it the perfect opportunity to try something that might otherwise be out of your comfort zone, like the Charcoal Grey Checked Suit. The skinny trousers and fitted jacket give it a modern silhouette, and the adventurous large red and grey check pattern is anything but introverted.  (Price: £220.00 BUY)
