Check Me Out Style

Check me out! Ways to make a big impression this season get yourself a funky check suit. With sharp graphic lines mixed with modern weaving techniques you can now find the perfect blend of earth toned checks for something subtle or hard striking graphic designs for a more upfront look. A monochrome check gives a classic look mixed with elegance and old school style.

The Green Tailored Suit and Accessories

The Green Look: Suits & Accessories


When choosing a green cloth for your tailored suit, keep it in the darker spectrum of colours, some fabrics are woven by mixing green and black yarns together, this gives the cloth a much deeper colour, which we recommend. Another way of adding a shade of green to your outfit is by using a green cloth as a trim, on a lapels, pockets, buttons or trouser belt loops, this can help give the accent of colour.

Your Bespoke Suit

At Marc Wallace this season we have a great new wool & mohair cloth, perfect for tailored suits, if it’s a two or three piece. The mohair content give the cloth a course and more ridged feel to the suit, this enable you to have a light weight suit for the summer, without the suit looking to fluid. Made to Measure suits start from £995.00, the mohair suit below £995 for a two piece, waistcoat from £145.
