How to wear pinstripes in 2018, without looking like Gordon Gekko
Pinstripe suits aren't just for bankers or white-collar criminals anymore. Some modern iterations are worlds away from their boxy, broad-shouldered antecedents, with lean and effortless proportions designed to be worn on both 9 to 5 days and on weekends. "Insanity", you protest, but trust us, notable brands like Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela, Off-White and Versace have thrown their weight behind tailoring for FW18. And no wonder: a smart, traditional suit is instantly statement-making amid a sea of streetwear and athletic-inspired gear.
It all comes down to the styling. To loosen things up, go for less obvious colours than black or navy, or jazz things up with a bold, printed top (button-down for work, tee for off-duty). Feel like taking a style gamble? Do the daring, and layer your suit jacket over its mortal enemy, the hoodie, or a very Continental lightweight turtleneck.
