I’ve been trying to smarten up my look lately, and to me, the smartest thing a man can wear is a well tailored black suit, so when Dobell got in touch and asked if I would like to try one of their amazing suits, I instantly said yes. Well i’ve been wearing it for a little while now, and I thought I would tell you what I think of it.
Dobell was launched in 2003, and since then, they have established themselves as the leading online formal store for both men and boys of all ages. From day one, Dobell’s mission has been to deliver choice, quality, and unbeatable value, alongside comprehensive style advice and amazing customer service.Dobell very kindly sent me one of their Classic Black Suits, which includes a black suit jacket, and a pair of black trousers, all wrapped up in one of their beautiful suit bags.
I absolutely love the suit jacket. It’s incredibly soft, and it just feels like i’m wearing silk. I think it’s actually made out of cloth, but what ever it’s made of, I can tell that it’s extremely high quality because of how soft it is. When i’m wearing it, I just like feeling up the fabric, does that sound wrong?
I also love the tailoring of the jacket, as it fits like a glove. I was a little worried that it would be a little tight, as I don’t have the smallest chest in the world, but Dobell got the size just right.
Another thing I love about the suit jacket, is it’s cut and design. It’s smart while at the same time still being casual. I love the collar, buttons, and even the faux pockets at the bottom, as they make it look extremely smart, while the cuffs and overall cut of the suit jacket make it still look quite casual.
I also love the suit trousers. They’re again made from the same amazing silky soft high quality material as the suit jacket, and feel amazing against my skin.
I was again a little worried about the sizing, but Dobell got it just right. I’m a little larger on the top than the bottom, and I was worried that their sizing would just be a general one size fits all, but you choose the sizes of both your suit jacket and suit trousers separately, so if you’re a little bit of an funny size like me, you can mix and match the sizes to accomplish a well tailored suit.
Another thing I like about the suit trousers, is their design. They have a zip fly fastening, with both a hook and button fastening at the waist. This makes them feel extremely secure, and because Dobell got it so right with the sizing, I don’t even have to wear a belt with these gorgeous pair of trousers.
Another thing I love about both the suit jacket and the suit trousers, is their colour. I know that black can be a bit of a boring colour, but because of how Dobell have tailored and cut the suit, it’s one of those suits that you can pair with anything, any colour, and wear to any occasion. Wether that’s a formal business meeting, or a casual laid back lunch.
I also love that they packaged the suit so well, as it came in it’s own suit bag with quilted coat hangers, which I think added an extra touch of class to receiving a suit. The suit bag itself is a big bag with a big back pocket containing two sections, one for the suit jacket, and one for the trousers, with a big zip in the middle, which I think is fantastic, as it will help keep the suit not only protected, but clean.
Overall I would have to rate the Dobell Classic Black Suit, a ten out of ten. I love everything about it, from the cut and fit, to the colour, material, and even it’s design. I don’t think that they could have made it any better, and i’m actually thinking of buying another because they’re that great. They also offer so many different colours and designs, from the more classic to the more novelty, so there’s something to suit everyone, see what I did there?
If you’re looking for a fantastic suit, that’s well tailored and quality made, then I highly recommend you check out Dobell as they’re excellent.
I was very kindly sent this gorgeous suit to review, but all thoughts, opinions, and general ramblings are my own.
