Different Patterns in Men’s Suits

Just as suit style, fit and color, suit patterns are also important. Solid, Pinstripe, Windowpane, and Check patterns are four main suit designs to consider.

Solid Suit:
The solid suit is a plain suit which consists of only single color. These suits must differentiate themselves with pocket, button, lapel, and vent style. They are versatile, neutral and safe for all situations. The popular colors include black, charcoal gray, navy blue and even white.

This style of pattern consists of vertical lines running all over the suit jacket and pants. These stripes of color can vary in thickness depending on the designer's vision. The Pinstripe is by far the most popular striped suit and men use this suit to look more formal and authoritative.

Window Pane:
This suit pattern is created by both vertically and horizontally running lines to make square or rectangular "windowpane" patterns. These suits are more stylish than the previous models.

The plaid suit is one of the fancier patterned suits on the market. This  mens suits can’t be seen as often as many of the other suit patterns on the market because of its high cost and difficult tailoring methods. This suit is similar to the windowpane suit with its use of vertical and horizontal lines. However, the lines will run in close knit groups with various gaps to create the box like openings. This pattern can be worn to less formal office settings and fun social gatherings such as church, weddings, and parties.

Check Patterns:
The check patterned suit is similar to the window pane suit with one exception. This suit has every other square or rectangle filled with horizontal lines.This suit pattern is one of the trendier styles that can be worn to important social events. You can wear this suit on formal dates, church, weddings and even parties.
