Your New Favorite (and Awesomely Priced) Suit: Combatant Gentlemen


There are several things we at Life, Tailored truly love: great deals, great suits, and our readers.  So when we find a company that truly embodies the first two, it is our pleasure, no… our responsibility, to introduce that company to you.  Combatant Gentlemen, the SoCal based menswear brand, makes some of our favorite suits on the planet, they also happen to be some of the most reasonably priced.  So here is your guide to being the best dressed man in the room, and looking like a million bucks for around $200, complete with a promo code to throw in a free tie.

The Essential Suits

Every man needs at least two suits in his closet: a sharp grey suit that easily doubles from the office to the evening, and a crisp blue suit to switch it up.  These suits are important because they are both so incredibly diverse.  You can rock either one to work on a Monday, and switch up the details and hit a wedding on Saturday.  While two great suits can typically run you upwards of $1,000 (at least) Combatant Gentlemen can offer the same essential suits for $300 total.


Each of these suits is hand-tailored in Combatant Gentlemen’s Slim Fit cut to give you one hell of a silhouette.  The Grey is constructed with super 140’s (damn good fabric) and the Navy Chino is put together using 100% Italian Cotton.  These are seriously some of the best suits you can find, and the price catapults them passed the competition.  If you are looking for your first suit (or even your 50th) you can’t go wrong here.  Plus, if you use promo code “Lifetailored” at checkout you get a free tie to complete the look.

The suit is step one, but the details will set you apart.  Pair one of the Combatant Gentlemen Slim Fit Suits with one of these shirts and you’re golden.


For the Exceptionally Dapper


If you’re new to the suit game, Combatant Gentlemen has you covered on all the essentials to get you comfortable in your grown man’s outfit.  Of course they also have the goods to take care of the seasoned suit lovers.  With perfectly tailored three-piece suits that kill it from the boardroom to the corner booth, you can be the coolest man in the room while also keeping some money in your wallet.


Remember to use promo code “Lifetailored” at checkout to get your free tie with any Combatant Gentlemen purchase.

Complete the Look:

While we are all for adding colors and patterns to your traditional everyday office suit, when going for the three piece it’s all about traditional style done right.  Pair the above suits with these shirt and tie combos and get the perfectly dapper look we think every man should strive for.


Step Out of the Ordinary


If you’ve already got your hands on a few good suits, then it’s probably time to take your game a step further and add some flavor to your suiting collection.  Adding just a little bit of texture to your rotation will change up the monotony of the everyday suit and still give you the uniform look to keep you office ready.  Combatant Gentlemen’s herringbone collection hits all the right marks.  The fit is superb, the fabric is on point, and the look would have you believing this suit costs $1,200, when the price tag sits at $200.  Plus, you need something to distinguish your fall and winter suits from the rest of the pack, and a little herringbone is just the thing to do it.


Complete the Look:

To tailor your suit perfectly for winter, play with some different textures and patterns you might typically overlook.  Combatant Gentlemen has a great selection of shirts that work perfectly under a suit, without looking too “buttoned up”.


The Extraordinary Man in Combatant Gentlemen


Part of being an International Man of Mystery means knowing how to look incredibly badass (and nothing like the hired help) in a tuxedo.  You aren’t getting the lady pictured above by showing up to this years New Year’s party in a rented tux some schlub wore to his second wedding last weekend.  Calculated cool takes planning, and no man ever looks cooler than when he has on the right formalwear.

Whether you decide to do your best James Bond in a traditional black, or an updated navy or charcoal tux, these are the ones you should be looking at.


Combatant Gentlemen Tuxedos in Charcoal, Black and Navy. Each $200.

Complete the Look:

Men seem to have a lot of trouble putting together black tie outfits, when truth is, they are the easiest uniform to put together.  Keep the shirt white, and the tie black.  Your biggest decision is whether or not you are man enough to rock the bowtie.  But this doesn’t mean you need to match every other guy in the room.  Throw in some different fabrics (like a herringbone tuxedo shirt) and a subtle pattern and you just blew passed the competition.  And now the real big decision is what lovely lady you are bringing home tonight.

At the end of the day, if you want to look unbelievably good and don’t want to spend your entire rent check trying to achieve it, Combatant Gentlemen is the answer to your prayers.  And don’t forget to use promo code “Lifetailored” at checkout to get yourself a sweet tie, free of charge.  Your sartorial game just stepped up.  And your wallet thanks you for it.
