Possen is a - not that well-known - Dutch firm that offers made-to-order garments all the way from shirts to suits and overcoats. In addition they have a bunch of accessories available via their web store.
Even though I’m not that familiar with the company itself, there is something very interesting at their website - namely the presentation of their seasonal selection of fabrics and garments. Over 200 pictures of different pieces (showcasing the fabric selection and models) which are a great way to find inspiration on how to mix different colors and patterns in terms of jackets, shirts and accessories. Although not all the combinations are to my liking, I still encourage to have a look. Here I’ve picked few of my personal favorites from different categories.
In case you are not working on a firm (or industry) with a very strict and traditional dress code, business and office wear does not need to be “boxy” or extra formal. One can easily dress down your suit for example by choosing to go with patch pockets, minimal construction and soft shoulders. This way you also have a suit that can be worn as separates and a jacket that goes in more casual occasions as well.
Checks, windowpanes, stripes and patterns are an easy way to bring some variation to one’s every day rotation. Here again it shown that it is hard to go wrong by playing with the different shades of colors such as blue, grey, brown. For more about how to play with patterns - check this post I wrote last year.
Double-breasted and chalk striped suit might be the best match when talking about “power suiting”. As seen in the outfit on the right that can also be dressed down though. And still look elegant and chic.
