Suit­ing up is an art. Ev­ery­one can­not be a David Beck­ham or David Gandy when it comes to suit­ing up like a debonair, but the right mix and match of blazer, tie, shirt and shoes can make you look ef­fort­lessly dap­per.

When­ever we think of suits, the ba­sic colours that strike our mind are black, blue and grey. In­stead of be­ing mo­not­o­nous, there’s a lot more that a suit can of­fer.

As you read on, take co­pi­ous notes and make sure you draw ad­mi­ra­tion from all cor­ners for the next time you opt for a suited and booted look.
