' Dapper Gents '

A great suit or a blazer is extremely essential to any man out there. Those who know me are probably aware that im constantly seen in  a blazer or suit blazer every day 365 days a year. As I mentioned in my GQ interview "I'm a blazer addict. Blazers are like a pair of socks to me: they're essential to wear indoors and out'

Im currently introducing different types of suits or blazers to the younger generation. Informing them that the suits/ blazers gave evolved into a more modern cut, tailored yet stylish item that any man must have.
 
Having long provided such a look across their labels, the Austin Reed house have expanded its suits and blazer range for Autumn / Fall 2010 with a new style of suit. A modern interpretation of a classic it is, but amongst recent suit trends you shan't find it.




Ralph Lauren suit range for Autumn / Fall 2010 has a distinctive style and feel to it. You see, by way of their Polo Ralph Lauren / blue label, Ralph Lauren are taking the modern sack suit to men everywhere.

In reinterpreting the sack suit Ralph Lauren are both playing to, and bucking, current men's suit trends. While releasing the suits in a two-buttoned tweed is on the money, the cut of a sack suit isn't a natural fit with the modern male silhouette - the modern suit, in traditional cloths or otherwise, favours the arguably more flattering drape and Continental suit cuts.
The Ralph Lauren label isn't, of course, the first to try to revitalise the look: Michael Kors tried the same for Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2009 on a Mad Men inspired catwalk (below). The results were varied, and the problems of the sack suit cut obvious.


As for their explanation of the styling, for their Autumn / Fall 2010 collection Polo Ralph Lauren are keeping the undarted front but updating the overall cut from the classic:
The new sack suit "does away with darts and shoulder construction, but it's shorter length and two buttons keep it current."
It's likely that, in keeping with their American styling, the suits and sportscoats in the sack cut will also feature a single vent at the rear, as opposed to the double, British style venting also found in men's tailoring.
