Will this style of suit, suit me? 

Absolutely – the great thing about a casual suit is the versatility. With 76 different styles in this particular range, you’re sure to find a look that suits you. Yes, the Portofino range classically compromises of statement pieces, but these can be toned down with the right look, or worn just as they are dependent on your style.

Here’s our top tips on how to dress down without compromising on style;

  • Try navy, grey or tan; these are the easiest to dress down. Particularly because black is seen as a classic, formalwear option.
  • Keep it simple; don’t sweat the shirt. If  you’re trying a casual look, you don’t have to be wearing a shirt. A well-fitted t-shirt, button down or jumper can work just as nicely in the right setting.
  • It’s all in the shoes; believe it or not, shoes play a large part in how dressed up an outfit looks. We suggest opting for Loafers over Oxfords and Wing Tips over Formal Pumps for a more casual look.
