Here some alternative methods to incorporate these colours in your wardrobe without looking like a walking traffic light:
__________________________________________________________________

SHIRT ACCENTS: 

 

Accentuate your garments with your lucky colours by changing the buttons, inner collar, the inner cuffs of your shirt or even the collar tips to boost you luck.

A good example would be the example shown above. A regular blue checked shirt that can be found within the wardrobe of an everyday business man. The changes that have been made are subtle but not over the top.

 

In our bespoke service, you can have the freedom to choose your cloth according to your taste and preference. 


ACCESSORIES:

Accessories are a men's best friend. Don't be afraid to add a splash of colour to your outfit. Here are some of the examples. Click here to view our selection of accessories.

                



LINING:



Prefer a bit of subtleness in your adding your lucky colours into your suit? Add a little fun and flair to your outfit by selecting a contrast colour lining for your suit from hundreds of lining fabrics available in our shop.

As we bid farewell and reminisce the year of 2019  and let us prosper and welcome the year of 2020!
