Limehaus Mulberry Over Check Suit From Suit Direct Review


Reviewed by M Wright

Is there anything more attractive than a man in a well fitted suit? Not only is it very attractive, but it’s a subtle sub conscious reminder of power and style.

My husband wears a suit to the office when he needs to power dress for a meeting or make an impression to new clients or company visitors; so I was delighted to be asked to review a suit from Suit Direct. Normally we take a trip into town to buy his suits – it’s a long drawn out process where you are faced with rows and rows of suits that you don’t really know what will look like until you’ve tried them on. I often sit there sighing, waiting for the Bradley Cooper moment of him walking down the changing room corridor looking like something from The Hangover.

Suit Direct takes all that guess work away. The website shows the suits being worn on actual models so immediately you can get a feel for the cut and style of it.

The website is so easy to navigate around with a great search feature at the top which filters in brand as well as size, fit, price and colour. It really couldn’t be easier.

We selected our suit in the sizes we wanted even taking inspiration of the accessories to wear with it.

Our suit arrived shortly after. We chose the Limehaus grey Mulberry Over check suit which came as a suit jacket and trousers. The fabric itself is a mid grey colour with very fine thread of maroon lines creating a very subtle check effect and the sizing is true. The suit buttons are a similar mid grey and on each cuff there is a row of four smaller buttons which really finishes it off.

The trousers are a slim fit – in line with the more modern suit styles people are wearing in the office today but still very comfortable. It really does looks very smart.

My husband has worn the suit a few times to work already and received many compliments saying how smart he looked, and the age old question of ‘are you going for an interview’!! I’d say that was a good compliment too!

I am a sucker for details and being a Manchester girl, I was delighted to see that the lining fabric of the jacket was a repeated bumble bee print – how perfect for our worker bee symbol!

Our whole experience has been outstanding. From an easy to use website, clear product descriptions, nice non-fussy imagery and a very high quality product; we really couldn’t be more impressed. The process was easy and stress free with and happily for me, none of this waiting around in the changing rooms experience.

Suit Direct have not only an incredible choice of smart suits, but they also supply blazers, shirts and casual clothing for men too. We have already recommended Suit Direct to some of our friends, and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again in the future.
