A men’s suit should be a staple of every gentleman’s wardrobe. Whether the suit be trendy, casual or business, formal, every guy should have at the very least one suit in his closet. Most men upon hearing that they need to ‘suit up’ or purchase a new suit cringe, and suddenly become “ too busy” or “unavailable.” However, suit buying and trying doesn’t have to be so tedious, especially not at Robbie & Co. Here are some tips from us to you to make this activity seem a little less like a job and a little more like a fun activity you’d do with your boys.

It’s all about the look you’re going for
Most guys hate the idea of formal wear shopping because they think of it as “stuffy.” Bottom line, shopping for your suit doesn’t have to be heinous. At Robbie & Co. there are all types of different looks. There are tuxes for those more formal occasions, and sports jackets for that casual, put together look. We also carry a variety of Italian suits that range from pinstriped to plaid to your everyday basic suit look. Pretty easy to tell that one has their choice of options here
Fit is essential
If someone has ever said there is something more important than the fit of one’s suit they’re absolute liars. Fit is key. It can make or break one’ s whole look. Ever see a guy in a super tight suit or someone drowning in their suit? It’s not a good look. Luckily Robbie & Co. has a master tailor with 35 plus years experience who can fit that suit for you and make you look like a million bucks.
Don’t be afraid to ask staff for help!
At department stores people sell anything to make a profit, even if it means you leaving a store looking like a walking tragedy. That won’t fly at Robbie & Co. The main objective is for a customer to not only leave looking good, but feeling good. Robbie & Co. cares about what a suit and customer need for a completed, polished look. Its one on one attention here is unlike most department stores.
Attention to detail is of the utmost importance
Lastly, to make a suit really stand out one needs to provide that suit a little tender, love, and care. And by that I mean accessories. At Robbie & Co. you have your choice of ways to go with a suit. You can have a bespoke suit with your choice of options such as surgeon cuffs, contrasting buttonholes, differently shaped lapels, or you can have a made to measure suit that looks custom made for you. A variety of ties, cufflinks, and socks are also sold in store to make the shopping experience that much easier.
So if formal menswear shopping makes you die a little on the inside then Robbie & Co. may be just what you need.
