Business Suits Guide

November 19th, 2015

There are several elements to consider when choosing your business suits. The texture, quality and practicality of the cloth, the style, cut and fit, and of course a price to suit your budget. So, we’ve put this Business Suits Guide together to help you make the right choice.


Business suits don’t have to be like office uniforms in the traditional black, grey and navy. With so many different cloths to choose from, you can distinguish yourself from the crowd without compromising your professionalism or sporting the wrong look for your business environment. For instance, you might adopt a much less conservative look in a creative business (see our suits galleries for inspiration). A banking or legal environment calls for a more formal choice that complements your role but also reflects your personal style.

Cad & The Dandy work with you to decide on the best cloth for your suit with an extensive choice of plain fabrics, stripes, checks and herringbones in a wide range of colours, whatever your working environment.


It’s not just the colour and pattern of your suit that you need to think about. Business suits endure a great deal of wear and tear, be it jostling with the crowds on the daily commute or sitting for hours in an airport lounge and plane; hot footing it after a cab, or working a 12 hour day across boardrooms, client meetings, desk tasks, and park lunches.

The heavier the cloth, the more durable it will be, with the added advantage of holding their shape so that you look as well turned out on the journey home as you did on the way in.


Elegant bespoke dressing will always instil comfort and confidence, so for your business wear, what better investment could you make than in a beautifully crafted made to measure suit.

Cad & The Dandy take pride in working closely with customers to create the perfect silhouette and fit for their individual requirements, and our skilled cutters pay exceptional attention to detail and accuracy when taking measurements so that a perfect fit is guaranteed.
