Drive in Style

Sep 28th 2015 at 11:20 AM

While the old saying that the suit maketh the man may be considered an overstatement, there is no denying that a suit has a lot to say about its wearer. And you know what? So does his car. Whether someone has fallen in love with muscle cars, sports sedans, or even supercars, the choice speaks about person’s traits and habits.

It is obvious then, that these two, basically boyhood, obsessions should be brought together and make one coherent statement. Alternatively, drivers are running a risk of looking like car salesmen going through mid-life crisis. Here are our top four favorite classy vehicles, and how to drive them in style.

Luxury Sports Car

It is very hard to speak about luxury sports cars combined with stylish suits, without thinking about the Aston Martin and its most iconic driver, James Bond himself. Because DB10 is, for now, is meant only for the silver screen appearance in the upcoming “Spectre”, we will have to backtrack few movies earlier and put Aston Martin DBS V12, still a real stunner, on this list instead.

As for the look, we think that 007 set quite a good example to emulate. Classic three-piece, similar to one we had an opportunity to see at the end of Casino Royale. Waistcoat hemmed to the belt and cut close to the body, should eliminate inherently stodgy look of such suits.

Sports Supercars

We just cannot escape the world of cinema, so our second addition on this list is Pagani Huayra, which was featured in Transformers: Age of Extinction. Where to start with this car? Maybe that it was named after Incan god of winds (we might add deservedly so)? Cool name aside, with powerful twin-turbo, V-12 engine developed specially for Huayra by Mercedes-AMG, 730 metric horsepower, and Pirelli tyres debut of this car was nothing short of spectacular and the legend still lives on.

Coupling such vehicle with a super classy, three-piece suit would be inappropriate. Supercars scream speed and performance, so more casual clothing, like versatile blazer over button down shirt without any trace of tie would be much better choice.

Luxury Electric Cars

Although electric vehicles are still making for a negligible portion of overall market share, they are gaining momentum, and you can be sure that they are here to stay. What is most important for our list, electric car niche has some really stunning models to boast. Take, for example, Tesla Model S. Beautiful design, powerful engine, respectable speed that goes up to 155 mph, and a great battery, helped this car to win numerous awards upon its release in 2012.

Although Model S stands toe-to-toe with any other similarly priced car in the world, chances are that their owners have an itch for gadgets and tech. Therefore they should try to reinforce tech-savvy look. Fitting suit, roll-neck, and pair of comfy sneakers should do the job.

Classy Retro Cars

What do you get when you combine robust and beautiful look of the 1930-50’s cars with modern design and contemporary performances? Most obvious answer would be Chrysler PT Cruiser, but there are some much classier choices like Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé that deserve to be mentioned more.

Still, the manufacturer that went the furthest in the efforts to breathe in new life to old and trusted design of the 30’s is Malaysian Bufori. Their latest product, Geneva, must be seen to be believed. It is only natural that, such retro car must be accompanied with appropriate retro-look. Double-breasted pinstripe suit, wide tie, pointy shoes, and thick frame glasses should perfectly fit into the overall vibe and create one strong and cohesive impression.

Only thing that is left to be said is that any car, no matter what style it belongs to, or how outlandish it may look, can be accompanied with according suit. As long as both of them fall into the same league, men should not be afraid of looking silly if they up the dressing antics a bit.
