I’m in need of some frivolous fun on the blog today. It’s been one gift guide after another and I need to just sit back, relax, and enjoy something beautiful. What could be a better break than soaking up some men in lovely, tailored suits? But first, let me give you another heads up, Monday’s post is about food so if you’re looking for food porn come back on Monday, but today is about the men and a certain luxury brand… Hugo Boss.
Hugo Boss is the most flattering high end brand for men that I’ve seen. Their suits are tailored to perfection. Sure, $100 suits can look decent if tailored but what makes Hugo Boss suits so great is how good they feel. Cheap suits, even when cut to your specifications, don’t have the weight or clean lines to sit nonchalantly on a man’s body when he’s moving around. It’s one thing for a suit to look good on the rack or when you’re standing still, but how does it look when you walk across a room? These suits are so well crafted with how they taper at the waist and lay across your shoulders that you’ll always look in command. On top of that, apparently Hugo Boss dress shirts are amazing. My boyfriend Dan is oddly proportioned – he has super long arms, moderately broad shoulders, and a narrow waist. Finding dress shirts has never been easy for him but he SWEARS by Hugo Boss. They’re not cheap, but they come in basically every imaginable collar, color, pattern, and material. I don’t know anything about semi-formal (or formal) menswear but I do know that Hugo Boss looks fantastic. Boo-ya.
Hugo Boss is to Dan, what Burberry is to me, an aspiration brand. (though he also loves Burberry because Burberry is perfection). Dan has one Hugo Boss suit, and he really feels like it was worth every penny. He also might be crazier than me with his brand-obsession because anytime we watch something where a celebrity or tv personality is wearing a suit he’ll be like, “they’re wearing Hugo Boss.” He has a radar, HugoBossdar or Hugodar or something. So today we’re gonna spend some time admiring Hugo and their fantastic suits, sport coats and top coats.
Hugo Boss ‘Huge/Genius’ | Slim Fit, Stretch Virgin Wool Suit by BOSS – Dark gray is the ideal suit color because it is never out of place. This one is in Hugo’s signature slim fit which also happens to always look good.
Hugo Boss ‘The Smith’ | Regular Fit, Stretch Virgin Wool Blend Sport Coat by BOSS – I love the Don Draper worthy pattern on this sport coat. If you rock a classic coat like this do you automatically smell like Drakkar Noir?
Hugo Boss ‘Aeron/Hamen’ | Slim Fit, High Pigmented Super 130 Virgin Wool Suit by HUGO – Every guy should own a two button blue suit because it is literally never the wrong suit to pick out of your closet. This slim fit option has a nice little gloss to it that makes it unique.
Hugo Boss ‘Hayford’ | Slim Fit, Velvet Sport Coat by BOSS – A velvet tuxedo style sport coat? Why not? Damn it Hugo, why don’t you make these for women too?
Hugo Boss ‘The James/Sharp’ | Regular Fit, Super 120 Italian Virgin Wool Suit by BOSS – A full bodied suit for those who find slim fit too constraining, light gray is just unique enough that it’s an eye catcher. Once again though, this is a suit you can wear year-round and for almost any event.
Hugo Boss ‘The Sintrax’ | Wool Cashmere Coat by BOSS – Burberry has some competition. This wool cashmere topcoat is crazy beautiful, and a few hundred dollars cheaper than its Burberry equivalent.
