Most men think that suits are strictly formal, boring and stiff. For most people following the dress code means to wear the same type of outfits every day that makes it look dull and boring. But what if I told you that suit is actually a versatile outfit that can be worn in different ways to generate a different look. They can be used to create formal, smart casual and business casual look and they can also be separated to be worn with other items like denim jeans.
