The Professional’s Guide to Office Suits

At McCann Bespoke, we understand the importance of making a strong impression in the workplace. An impeccably tailored office suit is not just a piece of clothing; it is a statement of professionalism, confidence, and style.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll dive deep into everything you need to know about selecting the ideal office suit, from style and fabric to color and customization.

The Importance of a Well-Tailored Office Suit

A well-tailored office suit can significantly impact your professional image. It reflects attention to detail, a commitment to quality, and an understanding of corporate culture.

Unlike off-the-rack options that can be baggy or restrictive, bespoke office suits from McCann Bespoke are crafted to your precise measurements, ensuring a perfect fit that flatters your body type and maximizes comfort throughout the workday.

A tailored suit eliminates uncomfortable bunching, awkward sleeve lengths, and ill-fitting trousers, all of which can detract from your professional presence.

Instead, you’ll project confidence and poise, leaving a lasting positive impression on colleagues and clients alike.

Choosing the Right Style for Your Office Suit

When selecting an office suit, consider the following styles to ensure it aligns with your professional needs and personal preferences:

Classic Business Suits

Classic business suits are a staple in any professional wardrobe. They typically feature a two-button jacket with notch lapels and flat-front trousers.

This timeless style is versatile and suitable for various business settings, ensuring you look polished and professional.

Modern Business Suits

For those who prefer a contemporary look, modern business suits offer a slimmer fit and updated design elements.

These suits may include peak lapels, narrower trousers, and a more tailored silhouette.

Modern business suits are perfect for professionals who want to stay on trend while maintaining a sophisticated appearance.

Selecting the Perfect Fabric for Your Office Suit

The fabric of your office suit plays a crucial role in its overall look and feel. Here are some popular fabric options to consider:


Wool is the most common fabric for office suits due to its durability, breathability, and natural drape. It is available in various weights, making it suitable for year-round wear.

Wool suits are comfortable and maintain their shape well, making them an excellent choice for daily office wear.


Cotton suits offer a lightweight and breathable option, ideal for warmer months or climates. They provide a more casual and relaxed look while still being appropriate for professional settings.

Cotton suits are easy to care for and can be a practical addition to your wardrobe.


Linen suits are perfect for summer, offering a cool and comfortable option. However, linen tends to wrinkle easily, which may not be suitable for all office environments.

If you choose a linen suit, consider one with a blend of other fibers to reduce wrinkling while maintaining breathability.

Choosing the Right Colour for Your Office Suit

Color selection is essential in conveying the right message in a corporate setting. Here are some classic colors to consider:


Navy suits are a versatile and timeless choice. They exude professionalism and can be easily paired with various shirt and tie combinations.

Navy is appropriate for almost any business occasion, making it a staple in any professional wardrobe.


Charcoal suits are another versatile option that offers a slightly more formal look than navy. They are ideal for important meetings, presentations, or events where you want to make a strong impression.

Charcoal suits can be paired with a range of accessories for a polished appearance.


Grey suits come in various shades, from light to dark, providing flexibility in your wardrobe.

Lighter grey suits are suitable for less formal settings, while darker grey suits can be worn in more conservative environments.

Grey suits are stylish and can be easily accessorized.
