Male fashion trends autumn/winter 2008-09: suits

His work suit is a staple and can't be neglected. This season's trend is for fitted jackets (careful if he has love handles!), with either one or two buttons. Go for straight or wide trousers traight, large even, without turn-ups. An alternative is the 3-piece suit which is back in, plus the double-breasted suit has made a comeback in the designer collections (but give this one a miss unless he's got natural style). 

How to wear it
Avoid black or charcoal, which are often too formal. Suggest lighter greys, or taupe and navy for a change. Experiment with tie colours and textures. There are no set rules here, but don't forget that bright colours add a bit of personality to dark outfits.
Stylish accessories (belts and shoes) will set off a suit. Another way to wear the 3-piece is to swap the waistcoat for a dark sleeved or sleeveless cardigan.
