Of course, half a century ago, this suit was not called that: for those men who had an idea of the rules of decency, there was no other option than a suit - be it a sports match, a trip to the cinema or a walk around the city. Every man, no matter how much he earned, had a suit, or at least a top and bottom, which he combined. Those who were distinguished by prosperity and taste (and therefore a voluminous wardrobe) could afford light shades on weekends, at the moment they were drawing, as it seemed then, an unbreakable border between a gray business and an exclusively black official tuxedo - and the suits of vacationers and summer residents, blue and white.
The shows of men's collections for the spring-summer 2017 season have finally convinced that the traditionally more conservative men's fashion has escaped from the shackles of the dress code that those in power so persistently enforced. Not without the help of sportswear, men's clothes have become more diverse and freer - both in shape and color. If you think modern fashion is looking for simple solutions, replacing well-tailored trousers with sweatpants, this is not at all the case. The dominance of dark gray and dark blue was replaced by suits of much brighter colors with an unusual check or stripe and a complex texture. Especially unexpected proportions give food for fantasy: cropped trousers or jackets, sleeves ¾ or the absence of a collar create them. Anyone who has ordered a bespoke or even made-to-measure suit at least once in his life will confirm to you,that it is no longer possible to give up their comfort. It is these clients (if they themselves have not yet come up with such an idea), who will be among the first connoisseurs of weekend suits. The latter will require imagination and a love of experimentation from their owner. Learn to improvise with accessories by wearing unexpectedly bright socks or a scarf around your neck, wringing your hat to one side and throwing a vintage bag over your shoulders. Once again, make sure how versatile they are, by being appropriate everywhere over long weekends: there is still nothing better than a suit for men.wringing his hat to one side and throwing a vintage bag over his shoulders.

Made from a blend of wool, silk and linen, this navy blue chunky brown plaid suit is textured like the one Benedict Cumberbatch wore to the Wimbledon final. Half-lined shoulders and sleeves keep the jacket lightweight and breathable. Finally, there was a use for a knitted jersey tie, which men, as a rule, do not know what to wear with.

An olive linen suit with a rough cotton texture, with a cropped jacket and skinny trousers, reminiscent of the uniform of student campuses. Lightweight fabric will not hinder movement, and natural folds will add artistic casualness to the look.

White suits can be very elegant in the summer, but only if you don't live in the city. Of all the possible options for light colors, we chose a blue cotton suit with elastane. Lightweight and devoid of lining (not counting the shoulders and sleeves), it almost does not wrinkle during the day, and equally, like a man, it will look beautiful during the day at a picnic in nature, and in the evening at a decent club.

The navy blue linen, wool and silk suit is hardly suitable for the office: its look is so cinematic that it reminds of the gangster movies of the 1930s. But it is ideal for a weekend in the city, to admire the city architecture, dine with your family in a restaurant and even ride a longboard with friends.
Suit, Reiss | Shoes, John Lobb | Glasses, Oliver People | Bag Mulberry | Bicycle St Germain (Men), Martone Cycling Co.
In this costume made of noble and textured gray linen, you can appear in the theater, and at the exhibition, and on a date. If double-breasted suits suit you, and even charisma to match David Gandhi, you will be able to impress a lady, even if you come by bike.
Suit, Etro | Shirt, Brioni | Wallet, Alexander McQueen | Neck scarf, Diesel | Glasses, Dior Homme | Brogie, Tom Ford
This navy blue, large-checked specimen, shimmering in the night lights with its silk texture, is a rather bold statement on behalf of whoever dares to wear it. The main thing is to analyze whether it will be appropriate where you are going, and think over all the accessories: if you really want to act as a dude, then you have to go to the end. The other two main roles in this version will be played by a huge scarf and boots, the choice of which must be approached very carefully: a little overkill in details or colors, and the whole image will turn from exquisite to funny.>
