Finding your perfect suit
I’ve always believed a suit should make a gent look smarter, stand taller and feel more confident. After a lot of research, testing and many grey hairs later, I believe we have come up with an outstanding suit range that’ll do just that. The secret behind each Charles Tyrwhitt suit is in the beautiful cut, superior fabric and impeccable detailing you will usually find on the finest bespoke suits. I can guarantee you will notice the difference.
We believe we’ve come up with the ultimate suit collection, made up of three main suit ranges as well as our classic wool dinner suit. Read on to find out how each range differs and choose the style, fabric and fit to suit your shape, style and your lifestyle. You can also take advantage of our alterations service, where we can shorten a pair of trousers for you in a jiffy.
These suits are timeless. It is the suit range I recommend to a chap who is a little flummoxed by the staggering number of suits on offer. Why? These suits will never date and will look just as good at a job interview as they will at a wedding. Much of the fabric is woven in Yorkshire, England.
In the detail
Our classic suits are 100% soft and breathable wool and feature traditional English suit detailing including notch lapels, twin back vents, natural corozo nut buttons and working button cuffs. Inside the suit jacket you’ll find a floating canvas chest piece which is designed to help the suit move better with you, thus providing a more comfortable fit.
Choose between a two- or three-button jacket. If you’re unsure which one is best for you, it can help to take your build into account. A two-button jacket is the universal standard and looks particularly good on short torsos. Three-button suits look better on tall gents.
The beauty of these classic suits is you can mix and match jacket and trousers styles. Flat fronted suit trousers provide a cleaner look but those with a heavy build may find pleated trousers to be a more forgiving fit.
Italian travel suits
If you regularly find yourself stepping off a plane in a crumpled mess, this suit is made for you. The Italian-woven pure wool fabric is more resistant to creasing because the fibres are more tightly twisted together - this is therefore the suit I recommend for gents who travel a lot. It is a more modern style than our traditional classic suits.
In the detail
You’ll find each suit jacket in this range features a single back vent which provides a clean finish. The suit jacket has classic notch lapels, the buttons are made from real corozo nut and on the sleeves you’ll find working button cuffs.
Each of our Italian travel suits has a two-button jacket which provides a more contemporary look than a three-button suit jacket.
All our Italian travel suits are available with flat front trousers that are cleaner and neater than pleated trousers and incorporate the crease-resistant high-twist wool.
Black Label suits
This is our most contemporary suit. Relatively new to the Tyrwhitt suit range, it represents a younger, more contemporary style that takes inspiration from the sharp 1960s suiting you’ll find in Channel 4’s Mad Men. Although it is our most modern suit yet, it is not ostentatious and will look good everywhere from the boardroom to a wedding.
In the detail
When it comes to the modern look of the Black Label suit, the Devil lies in the detail. The range features jackets with peak or notch lapels, real horn buttons, luxurious cupro linings, twin back vents and smart silk trims. The fabric is a breathable blend of wool and mohair. Each Black Label suit is available with a five-button waistcoat that will add an even more stylish touch.
The Black Label suit jacket is more fitted than our other suit jackets and this creates a cleaner, sharper silhouette. Choose from a classic two-button jacket or a more modern one-button jacket.
Suits as sharp as these look best against the clean lines of smart flat front trousers. Each pair is half lined to the knee and has side adjusters (rather than belt loops) for a cleaner finish.
The Charles Tyrwhitt dinner suit (or tuxedo) is the only dinner suit you’ll ever need. The suit features timeless detailing that will never go out of style and has a smart, classic fit.
In the detail
This suit fabric is woven in an English factory that has been an essential part of Yorkshire’s textile industry since 1910. The pure wool fabric means it is both warm and breathable. This suit also has smart covered buttons, working button cuffs and a classic fit.
Jacket and trouser options
The jacket of our dinner suit has one button so it’s neat, clean and elegant. The trousers have a single pleat, side adjusters and are half lined to the knee.
