Anatomy of a Collection – Fall 2015 Unsuits


At Black Lapel we love suits. But we also love Unsuits, those non-matching tailored sport coat and pants combos that stylish men have been rocking for years. What began as a way to inspire men to pair their separates in new and creative ways became the Unsuits collections.

This fall we were inspired to create a simple set of Unsuits that get the job done. Out of restraint comes creativity, so we held ourselves to one color and played up the tonal element with a straightforward, yet sleek pair of Unsuits.

Gray Birdseye Custom Unsuit

Inspired by the mid-toned gray of this sport coat, this Unsuit is perfect for keeping your look cool as the weather starts to cool. A transitional season stalwart, this Unsuit may live in a gray area but make no mistake, it is firmly planted in rakish fall style.

When playing up tonal differences the tendency is to pick a light and a dark version of the same color, but we wanted to put together a more nuanced combination. Hence, we paired the saturated blue of this sport coat with the darker blue of classic navy slacks. The resulting blue on blue combination provides maximum harmony with minimal effort from the wearer.

Cool, Calm and Collected
