How to take your suit out of office - The Inside Pocket


Less work, more play.

Think suits should be filed away strictly under ‘officewear’? Our new generation of tailoring in bold designs and flexible cloth deserves a place in your downtime wardrobe too.

Go on – give your jeans the weekend off and see where your stretch suit can take you.



A skinny fit suit with added stretch and a graphic check pattern has ‘Saturday’ written all over it. Pair it with a comfy knit, casually rolled-up trouser cuffs and box-fresh trainers and you’ll be surprised how much better you’ll look and feel than if you’d done your usual weekend stuff in casual kit.

You’ll be the sharpest guy strolling around town, the cultured gent at the gallery and then the man making it look easy transitioning into the evening when you meet your friends at the pub – we bet your joggers wouldn’t stretch to all that.



Got lunch with the in-laws? A family party? Basically, going anywhere you need to make a bit of an effort but really want to be comfortable too? This is what your stretch suit was made for. It looks sharp – especially this one with its scaled-up blue check – but with 2% elastane you’ll feel more like you’re wearing your favourite sweatshirt than a buttoned-up suit.

Skip the tie, throw in a comfortable stretch shirt and add some tonal trainers into the mix and you’ve achieved the delicate balance of looking like you care, but feeling like yourself.



Heading out-out? Beat dressed-up door policies at their own game with an outfit that looks sharp enough to get you in, but feels comfortable enough to keep you out all night.

This one’s deep blue-green hue and form-fitting cut will attract attention for all the right reasons. Up the ante in a shirt with a dazzling graphic print and a revere collar that’ll keep you cool and your stretch suit just became your most reliable wingman.
