With colder temperatures setting in (it is January, after all), it only seems appropriate to visit the styles we might theoretically be wearing this time next year.
Completely unfamiliar with suiting? To make sense of all the options out there, our first Suiting 101 guide touches on the anatomy of a two-button, notched lapel combination.
Kipper is no ordinary tailor. Since the beginning, we’ve made it known that we create quality custom suits for men, women, and everyone in between, and Them acknowledged that in a recent writeup by Elyssa Goodman.
‘Tis the season for style. And, by that, we mean it’s a time to dress well (think of all those holiday parties between now and the New Year), and to give the gift of good taste – whether for the person developing their fashion legs or already off running. In any case, turn to Kipper Clothiers for the finest suiting, seasonal accessories, and plenty of gift opportunities.

How can you give the gift of Kipper?
1. A Custom Suit for the Holidays and Every Occasion After
Whether it’s for yourself or the sharply dressing person in your life, a suit just isn’t the same when it’s out of a box.
A custom suit, by contrast, is ready to go for this holiday season and plenty of work and formal events in 2019. This year, when you purchase one of our 4 custom suit holiday packages, we will not only mail the card to redeem your package but also a little gift for that special someone to unwrap for the holiday.
To make the experience even more special, Kipper has exclusive appointments around the holiday reserved for clients redeeming their purchase.
But, be sure to purchase by Dec. 20th to receive the gift by Dec. 23rd.
What options do you have?
Call it “Suiting 101” – or an introduction to your very first custom suit. Just like your college English lit class, Kipper’s basics stick to the classics. Whether grey, navy, or black is more your style, the result is ready to make an impression in an interview, take you to prom, or stand out at graduation.
Holiday parties, here you come! Whether that’s a New Year’s Eve bash, late-winter wedding reception, or something corporate and moderately casual, our Textures – to excuse the pun – perfectly suit the occasion. Stand out, in good taste, with checks, plaids, windowpanes, and more boundary-pushing prints.
If you could cross the fashion cliché “pop of color” with an impeccably cut suit, our Palette Collection would be the hybrid. For the trend-dabbling statement maker or for someone wanting a non-traditional tuxedo, these solid, saturated ensembles further covering waistcoats and blazers always turn heads.
How does your suit say “cold weather”? When the temperatures dip, don’t always resort to puffers, parkas, and sweaters. Rather, flannels and tweed, for their thicker, somewhat warmth-retaining composition, transition your typically adventurous style for the chillier months ahead.
2. Accessorizing with Kipper SF
Suits are your canvas, but accessories are the details giving your look that distinctive, finishing touch. Our sister site Kipper SF touches on the full range of possibilities.
Whether for you or that special someone in your life, a menswear classic often makes a solid starting point for developing your fashion personality. Where to begin? How about with Gold Plated Knot Cufflinks, matching Tux Studs and Cufflinks, or a timeless Wool Flannel Tie?
Something Quirky and Eccentric
There are style novices, and then, there are aficionados ready to blaze a new trail. The latter has already discovered and established their tastes, and it’s up to everyone else to catch up. While particular and occasionally difficult to shop for, this natty dresser is always looking for the one piece – perhaps a patterned shirt, catchy shoes, or an otherwise out-there accessory – that keeps them standing out from the pack.
That’s where Kipper SF’s selection comes in. We’ve got cufflinks that satisfy your need for speed, a collar chain that’s just as seasonal as eggnog, and a brooch that’s already in bloom for spring. Shop these and plenty more gifts between $15 and $100.
3. A Gift Certificate for (Nearly) Limitless Style Possibilities
When someone’s style can’t be pinned down, that’s where a gift card comes in. Available from $25 to $1,000, in increments of $25, our gift certificates don’t expire, have no processing fees, and, best of all, let that fashionable person in your life select whatever they want – a custom suit, a better-fitting dress shirt, or an accessory (or two) right in line with their tastes. Keep in mind that physical gift certificates take up to 5 business days to ship, and digital gift certificates are available upon request.
Whether it’s for a wedding suit, business attire, or better-fitting men’s clothing for women, Kipper Clothiers has many satisfied clients. Read what they have to say.
From building your basics to accessorizing, we cover five key styling tips for the beginner who wants to dress well.
Proudly introducing a new member of The Kipper Casual line, we are confident not only in the quality of its make, but also in the versatility of this garment made in matrimony between the polo and the regular t-shirt.
Dating back to when henleys were just the uniform of English town rowers (and now making a very prominent presence in daily fashion), the henley is regarded as the most popular of collarless shirts. We, at Kipper Clothiers, lean towards agreeing with this fashion theory. Why? The henley has the broadest range of versatility when it comes to wardrobe combos and scope of make -- henleys can be made in anything from cotton to thermals.
The henleys we have added to our Kipper Casuals collection are made of soft, jersey cotton. The type of material that you can lounge and get down to business in-- no matter what you’re doing, the henley is appropriate (or can be made appropriate) for nearly every situation!
Collarless and made with a three-button or four-button closure beneath a rounded neckline, smart casual outfits, like a sharp t-shirt, unconstructed blazer, and denim jeans get an extra boost of character when paired with a henley instead! That extra “lived-in” look gives not only your outfit, but also you, the untethered confidence that lets everyone know you know exactly what you’re doing even though, sometimes you might not. It’s okay, your secret is safe with us, but let’s be real here: as long as you look the part then what’s not to believe?
Our henleys come in black, white, navy, and heather grey-- the perfect, spectrum of staple colors so you can add this piece to your daily wardrobe and do whatever you want with it!
Wear it with a pair of our custom jeans and keep it simple, or pair it up with your favorite Kipper Clothiers suit and some, clean white sneakers to make it really smart and casual! Or, make it completely your own and take that henley with you to match up with your own style combinations.
Whatever it is, we trust you -- our job is give you the right options and the accessibility to wear quality that fits. So, go ahead -- take our henley and make it entirely yours!
