“People respond to how we’re dressed, so like it or not this is what you have to do.”
This is what Harvey Specter replied when Mike Ross asked him: “Why does it matter how much I spend on a suit?”.
Harvey Specter and Mike Ross are the irrepressible duo and stars of the US hit series “Suits”, a drama about one of the best and sharpest lawyer of New York, who hires a brilliant college-dropout.
And Harvey is absolutely right. Often people have prejudices based on how we’re dressed. So, in order to make a good first impression we will show you how to customize your own Harvey Specter suit! For the chest pockets and for those in the front you can choose the option that you prefer: no pockets, 2,3,4,… We recommend choosing “Wall Street Blue” as the fabric, a dark blue pinstripe fabric made of 80% wool and 20% terylene. You can also add a blue pocket square, which always is an eye catcher.
Now that you have all the information about customizing the suit, you just need some more accessories to make the look perfect:
… A white shirt with cutaway collar and french cuffs. These are important, because you will be able to wear cufflinks, which will add up to the overall successful look.
… A blue tie, either simple or with a pattern.
It’s time to customize your own Harvey Specter suit and “dress to impress” with Hockerty!
Typical of Harvey Specter's outfits are the blue pinstripes. Of course we offer this style on our website. It is important to pay attention: your model has to have a single breasted style with 2 buttons, long and peak lapels, the 3 pockets with flap, the chest pocket and the sleeve buttons with real holes.
As for the fit of the suit, Harvey Specter wears it in a classical way, and his jacket has side vents to its back. The importance lies on the number of buttons when customizing the waistcoat. In “Suits” Harvey Specter wears his with 6 buttons, the lowest unbuttoned. The finishing is diagonal. The pants are rather regular, but yet elegant. Do not forget about the pleats, as they give a significant extra to the overall look.
