The Playbook For The Modern Man

The Best Suit Brands Dominating Today’s Sartorial Game

If you’re the corporate buck, you live and breathe men’s suits. And, if you’re the sartorial schmuck, it’s likely that a suave suit is essential weekend kit, decked out for dinner dates or easy-drinks, whatever comes your way.

While a bespoke men’s suit is the dream, we don’t all have time or money for that kind of tailored treatment. So, how do you navigate the sea of ready-made men’s suits out there, without capsizing on a cheap poly-blend or sinking ship for an ultra skinny fit?

Taking the guessing game out of off-the-rack (or online), here are the best luxury men’s suit brands to know right now. Nailing that corporate office look, fine dining date ensemble, and mate’s wedding outfit just got easy with these suave jacket and trouser besties.

    There was one black guy in all these pictures and he was hidden behind all the other white people, no other cultures even in one single picture. What no-one else in the whole world wears suits? This is whats wrong with the human race, they forget we come in all shapes, colors, backgrounds, show some more diversity please!!!

  • Justin Sain

    Seems like that’s all some people see. I hadn’t even noticed. Scrolling through the pics again, I see it’s not even true. Stop being so racist….

    No Brioni, Canelli, Keystone, not even one Armani these are all the best suits in the world none of these cheap bags by this author are worth anything. The reason is inside the label there is a number it states how many pounds each thread can support. None of these suits including Zegna even have this number. You don’t buy a suit unless it states super 120, or super 200, buying anything else will be a waste of your money. Most American suits look like a bag you are wearing if you are not pencil thin like all these models. ANY Italian cut suit is different it will make you look thin by the way it is cut, Keystone is a Canadian suit but is the kless expensive of the suits. Armani is a close second. American cut suits look good on models and posers. Ermenegildo Zegna make great ties and nothing else. These other companies don’t use silk in the weave. Silk and wool are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The suits I listed will last a lifetime, they don’t wear out. That cannot be said of the other company’s suits.

    If the first thing that pops into your mind is race and skin color, then you’re a fucking retard. The KKK literally think the same thing.
