Meet Patrick: "Dress to Fit the Setting"

Whenever Patrick visits the 9tailors studio, the good-natured gent is always clothed well. As he discusses below, he's not one for under-dressing nor over-dressing, but he has a intuitive knack for looking the part and getting it right.

A linen sports coat and cotton pants are must-haves for Spring and Summer: they're lightweight, fashionable, and follow trend without overdoing it. Patrick's light blue blazer has a half self-lining, an option we at 9tailors especially recommend for summer style. Don't be scared of linen and cotton because they wrinkle easily! And what you see here are separates: we offer full linen and cotton suits in a variety of colors.

Name: Patrick Mulready
Age: 28
Hometown: Wethersfield, CT
Current Residence: Boston, MA
Occupation: Commercial Property Insurance Underwriter

How long have you been a 9tailors client?
2 years

Why choose custom?
I don't exactly have the "off the rack" body type. I like to have everything just the right length. I would end up getting everything I bought tailored anyway, so getting things custom-made makes sense for me.

What/who inspires your style? Why?
I wouldn't say something or someone specific inspires my style but I like to dress to fit the setting. I generally get ideas in magazines or online. There are definitely certain stores sites that I look at frequently.

What is your favorite piece from 9tailors?
I like them all but I probably wear my blue gingham shirt with the pink color inlay the most.

What would be your style advice to other men in your professional field?
I'm not a big fan of business casual but I understand that it is pretty much the norm now. I would say leave the polo shirts for the golf course and barbeques and wear button-down shirts to the workplace. Always have a blazer or suit coat with you, as well.

Right on.
