Tips for Mastering Sartorial Style

Read time 3

As the proverb goes, "trends come and go, but style remains." This holds true for sartorial style, which has transcended centuries and remains more relevant than ever today. A symbol of masculine elegance, it is an art that traditionally blends pieces from formal wear. However, while it adheres to certain codes, sartorial style is primarily a matter of attitude and charisma.

To help you embrace sartorial style in your daily life, we share our tips for mixing our iconic pieces. Then, it's up to you to adapt them as you wish to become a master of formal elegance. And for that, we have complete confidence in you.

Sartorial Style, What Is It?

Let's start from the beginning. The term "sartorial" is actually an anglicism with no equivalent in French. It is derived from the Latin word "sartor," meaning tailor. Sartorial style refers to the art of tailoring: a suit made by a craftsman or a tailored shirt. Today, this definition is a bit limiting, and when we talk about sartorial style, we are more referring to a form of elegance, beautiful fabrics, all combined with meticulous finishes.

While sartorial style is appropriate in professional settings or for certain special occasions, you can also completely adapt it to more everyday contexts by incorporating new combinations or mixing it with other influences. Say goodbye to the classic navy cotton suit: sartorial style can be personalized according to your preferences with a multitude of pieces to mix and match. It's all about personal preference!

Sartorial Style? Our Tips for a Style that Reflects You

1 - Choose a Beautiful Shirt

The shirt is the central piece of a successful sartorial style. But what makes a beautiful shirt? For us, it's primarily a garment made from quality fabric, with a flattering cut and finishes that imtely catch the eye. You can choose a shirt with a specific collar, such as a "pin-collar" with its silver brass pin or an English collar for a bold British style. Grand collars (around 8 to 9 centimeters) provide coherence between the shirt and the suit jacket. This is sure to satisfy those attentive to details.

2 - The Importance of Trousers

Trousers are just as important as the shirt and structure your overall look. Before donning a classic suit trouser, consider another alternative: pleated trousers. Equally elegant, they add a touch of originality while still respecting traditional codes. The Hast pleated trousers are modernized with their mid-rise waist and a more fitted leg. They come in seersucker for summer and ultra-soft flannel for winter. In timeless and deep colors, trousers add a refined touch to your appearance. Give it some thought.

3 - Solid or Patterned Ties

The best way to elevate a slightly conservative formal look is to add a tie, either solid or patterned. For color, we recommend opting for modern and vibrant tones, such as burgundy or deep navy blue. Yellow stripes, red dots: the pattern should remain discreet and understated while playing with contrasts. Regarding the material, once again, choose quality. Our silk ties are a safe choice and pair well with a white shirt and a sports jacket.

4 - Embrace Mismatched Pieces

Let it be known: you can adopt sartorial style without necessarily wearing a full suit. For an easier sartorial look, opt for mismatched pieces, such as a mix of a sport jacket and pleated trousers. At Hast, we particularly love this contemporary look without losing elegance. In timeless and bright shades, in pine green or navy, the sports jacket pairs effortlessly with all wardrobe essentials, be it a white shirt or velvet trousers, both in summer and winter.
