Menswear suits are definitely a type of fashion apparel that are on my mind! And no, not just because of the gorgeous male models often donning some amazing designer threads. But rather, many red carpets are on the way and I like to see what menswear suits stand out. Summer is ending, but it might be that one could still make use of a new suit for an end of summer wedding or cocktail event, where the look could still easily transition for early fall. Fashion Week is right around the corner and I’m very eager to see what’s in store for menswear in Spring/Summer 2015! With that all said, here are my top menswear brands for my Fashion Nexus readers to check out, more specifically my male readers! But hey, plenty of women out there love to help dress their man, so again, here are my top picks!
Bonobos is a men’s apparel brand focused on better-fitting clothes and a better-shopping experience. This focus leads to suits that deliver a great fit, high energy, and the best of the best when it comes to customer service. Take for example their extensive assistance page offering important and detailed information on fit & sizing guides! Launching just in 2007, the brand is now the largest apparel brand built via the web in the US. Partnering with Nordstrom has moved this brand past being solely online.
Bonobos has not only caught my attention, but that of many other larger and more recognizable publications — “One of America’s Hottest Brands” by Advertising Age; “Best Men’s Pants” by New York Magazine; one of Inc. Magazine’s “20 Awesome Facebook Pages” and was awarded Crain’s “Best Places to Work in New York City”. The brand has received additional features in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Forbes, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, and Inc Magazine, with appearances on on Bloomberg TV, CNBC’s Mad Money with Jim Cramer, Fox, Reuters and The Today Show.
Bonobos keeps up with top menswear trends and working towards providing more options for the brand’s customers by continually launching collections. Take for example, the brand’s recent launch of their Spring & Summer 2014 collections — men’s Seersucker and Cotton suits — still providing a great-fitting and lightweight natural complement to whatever warm-weather events one might be attending — weddings, garden parties and mint juleps!
The suits are very dynamic, but Bonobos has even more to offer with that of pants, casual shirts, dress shirts, denim, sweaters, and even more basics when it comes to menswear apparel and accessories. Bonobos clearly has a lot to offer and its focus is right where it should be, on the customer!
SEIZE SUR VINGT
Seize sur Vingt is a dynamic menswear brand, a true NYC born & raised menswear brand, with a very recent expansion now to the West coast. The plaids are simply eye-catching. The basics are still detailed to a tee. There is such high quality in each piece — very apparent, even at first glance.
This brand is certainly all about customization — made to measure and made to fit. Seize sur Vingt is not afraid to go beyond the basics, mix prints, and work with bold, statement-making colors. Check out the brand’s various new arrivals, men’s options, including accessories & shoes!
The brand has experienced a great deal of features, very well deserved — Departures Magazine, LA Times, & WWD. And also, celeb dressings with Paul Rudd, Adam Levine, Steven Yeun, Matt Berninger, & Ian Wheeler at the Grammys!
DAVID HART — I was blown away by this brand’s presentation earlier this year for F/W 2014. So of course when it comes to top-notch suits, David Hart is a must to have on my list! His brand started out as a collection for only menswear accessories — luxury ties, bow ties, and pocket scarves. It was only last year that he debuted his first collection! And that impresses me all the more!
David Hart describes his pieces as “confident yet approachable” and similarly I say the suits are bold, statement-making, while still being practical and wearable. There is definitely a vintage vibe, but no doubt a nod towards being very modern. Each collection offers not only more options for the brand’s menswear consumers, but it brings to the table something new and intriguing with each piece.
I know I’ve made a great find with a brand when it has received as much press as David Hart has — Details, GQ, Nylon Guys, Men’s Week, Scene, LA Times, Esquire, WWD, and more! He has also attracted some major celeb clientele, such as Andy Samberg & Daniele Radcliffe.
David Hart’s work is clearly that of a true talent, top-notch designer menswear suits. But there is still a great deal more to choose from when shopping — original brand staples such as bowties and ties, but now also socks and shirts. Needless to say, I’m very excited for Agentry PR’s NY Menswear Day for NYFW and to specifically see what David Hart has in store for Spring/Summer 2015!!
Hangrr — a custom menswear suits brand, all about simplicity, luxury, and accuracy. I admire a brand with such clear principles and goals — top-notch fit, unmatched value, and diligent customer service. It was great to read thru the customer reviews & testimonials!
The fit is maxed out a 100% guarantee — light as a feather German shoulder pads, perfect cut at the waist, superior comfort with inner linings, and more!

With Hangrr you will receive exclusive designs, true superiority, and fabric of the highest quality with the best of wool blends, quality linens & cottens.

Indochino is an online leader for custom menswear. Fit is very important to the brand, so much so that each suit is hand tailored by the brand and delivered; no outside tailoring is required. The brand is also about providing professionalism, affordability, sophistication, all while still being fashionable. Each suit is of the highest quality — superior fabrics & techniques.
This brand is certainly encompassing of basics in black & grey, but adds some great modern flare with pinstripes and blues. Basics aside, the brand also takes it’s spin on high-end menswear, classic and flashy tuxes! But purchases can also be made in apparel and accessories categories such as coats, pants, and shirts.
You can also make selections based off of collection categories, rather than item types — The Essentials (suits, shirts, signature style, black tie looks, and accessories)’ Fall 2014 with traditional hues and tones; Premium Italian shirts in various styles and colors; and suits for Weddings!
