Suit season is upon us, and one would ideally don a freshly cut suit than wear an old beater with too long a track record. Sure your old reliable jacket serves you well, but maybe for this season you’d like something more trim and stylish. Something that says ‘night out’ rather than ‘required dress code’ easier said than done? I think not, check out the latest offerings from local clothing label Merger a few pictures down. Enjoy.
Buttoning up is often a shortcut way to up your style a notch.
The prime rib they served us was really good as evidenced by the thumbs-up.
Photographer Frank Hoefsmit, Jun Poblador, and I.
Jun Poblador’s skull lapel pin, though I would not personally puncture my suit lapel like that. (ouch!)
Here are photos of the suits (and then some) as promised.
For that urban feel.
I liked the lapel width of this one, the tie bar not so much.
Double negative break trousers.
This look struck me as very English, or maybe it’s just the umbrella. Clean and unfussy look.
French. I personally can’t wear a jacket with piping detail, but it works for you then go for it.
French cuffs and a winged collar for formal occasions.
Classic single button tuxedo with subtle satin detailing. (same one George Salud was wearing)
I liked this roll down turtleneck also.
Jackets were cut short, as the modern style today suggests but remember these are models so they’ll look a little tamer once worn. Merger’s fit is for asians which I appreciate a lot, and did I mention that these suits are very reasonably priced?
Dot tie. +1
George Salud, reluctant to take the stage. (he was practically trying to escape at this point)
What must be done must be done. His walk was met with applause from the appreciative audience.
