September is often considered a bit of a transition month for style, summer fashion seems a little outdated but it’s not quite time to break out the Autumnal colours yet. So with that in mind, we would recommend that a September groom shifts his focus from colour to pattern.
Slaters’ statement collection has bold prints at its core, and is the perfect option for those transitional months where you just can’t pick a colour of the season.
The main print we’d recommend for September is a check, Slaters’ collection of checked suits are available in various colours, and range from being super bold, to a little more subtle, so whatever your style, you can make a patterned suit work for you.
