From the Archives: Sir Hardy Amies on the Suit
“You can wear a dark blue suit and tie with a pale blue shirt and navy blue socks but you must then have a patterned silk handkerchief.”
– Sir Hardy Amies
The suit has always been the centrepiece of the Hardy Amies collection and it has evolved throughout the years. As fits have changed, what remains the same is Sir Hardy’s mantra that suits are meant to be comfortably cut and never constraining. A suit is never complete unless both the jacket and trousers are cut from the same cloth so they harmonise with one another. They are designed in a variety of classic and seasonal hues with both statement and subtle checks.
“It is the most comfortable costume in which a man can conduct the life which modern conditions make for him. It is a second skin in which he has placed pockets.”
Hardy Amies suits are expertly tailored to offer the perfect fit for the modern man, with a selection designed to be styled up or down for all occasions, available both online and in store at 8 Savile Row.
