It’s hard to believe that we are in Debs season already. All the stress and hours of studying for the Leaving Cert is finally over and now the Debs season has just began.
We all know that most of the girls have already picked their Debs dresses. But what about the guys? With Ireland’s great run in the Euro’s and post leaving cert holiday’s the guys have been keeping themselves very busy. Have they even thought about what they are going to wear for their Debs . We believe that guys being guys will do their shopping last minute and there is nothing wrong with that. Detail Menswear in this blog post would like to make your Debs suit purchase a bit easier. We stock a huge variety of suits in all kinds of cloths and fits, with accessories of every colour to match your Debs date.
But what trends do we have for Debs this year? Gone is the day of a black hired suit and matching black bow. Debs have really moved on and this year the Debs trend is more about the style of the individual person. The emphasis is on vintage style and tweed. If you are looking for more quirky look then check suits are the way to go. For the more reserved guys we can offer a huge range of plain, contemporary and stylish slim fit suits. In terms of colours, this year is all about navy and blue suits. The plain colour suits can be more versatile and can be used for other occasions such as job interviews or weddings, basically a plain suit will suit more occasions giving you better value for money. But as we said it’s more about each individuals look, there is no right or wrong anymore when it comes to putting together your look for that big night.
We stock every colour under the sun in ties and bow ties, so to match that dress of your Debs date should not be an issue. If you do come up with a colour that is hard to match we suggest that you bring in a piece of the fabric from the dress (maybe a strap) and we’ll try our best to match it as we have access to a tie factory in Dublin. You can also accessorize your suits with different colour waistcoats for that more individual “quiky” look. Or else you can go with a two piece suit and accessorize it with coloured braces which we also stock in a variety of colours. Remember accessories can be the real stamp of the individual so be bold and don’t forget the socks!
It’s Brogues all the way for most guys at present. They have made a huge come back in the last 18 months and gives you that more authentic vintage feel. Brogues are available in many different colours from tan to wine or a touch of navy. Also we see a new trend of mixing leather and check fabric in brogues which can really make a statement. If brogues are not for you don’t panic as we stock over 25 different styles of shoes in all colours
A Navy suit is a safe option. But have you ever realized how navy can be so versatile? Just have a look on the photos below to see how you can wear and accessorize the plain navy suit
A Blue suit will make you stand out from the crowd. If are very confident you can match it with strong colours to make a fashion statement or else you can tone it down with a plain white crisp shirt, navy tie and pocket square and brown brogues.
A black suit is called classic for a reason and every man should have a black suit in his wardrobe. It can make any guy look good. You can play around with the colour of the accessories you are going to wear. Remember that the right choice of accessories can make your outfit be one of a kind. One essential point when wearing a black suit is that you wear black shoes.
Grey suits can be another alternative for you to wear. We stock many different shades of grey. A good safe option could be a charcoal grey suit or else you can go bold with a fashion statement of this 2016 season and pick a light grey check suit which will make you stand out from the crowd.
