Oftentimes the statement is beyond the clothing :)  I talk a lot about shoulders. It’s the first thing I look at on any suit, especially when I’m considering different manufacturers. For most body types, shoulder pads (not added - just your typical structured suit shoulder) aren’t necessary. Shoulder pads are meant to cover up imperfections on your shoulders. They’re also used to make a suit appear more formal. So I’m not knocking all shoulder pads. I just recommend trying a soft shoulder, with or without a chest canvas. It creates more movement and beautiful imperfections in the overall aesthetic. Meaning imperfections that make a jacket not look so stiff. I think you’d be surprised at how much you’ll like it. Anytime I add padding/structure to a suit jacket, it’s very light and thin so it doesn’t look like we’re adding football pads. Magro suits tend to be a lot lighter than others for this reason, without compromising quality or durability. Now’s the time to book if you haven’t already for your “holiday” suit. I promise I won’t force you to go soft shoulder if you’re not a fan   Taking a week long break from suits on a little road trip with some friends @letskeepitwild hiking, camping, cleanups, etc. going to all new places I haven’t been to in Utah. Follow these guys and their mission. Awesome company to spend the week with!  Anytime another wedding vendor chooses your brand to be a part of their wedding, it feels like the highest honor in the industry. @melissajill and her now husband Bruce were such a fun couple to work with. And she chose such an amazing photographer @danielkimphoto  What a wedding to be a part of!
 congratulations to this beautiful couple!

This is the best brown with black combo I’ve ever seen! Good luck @grungymatt you’re gonna kill it brother!  Summer is coming to an end. Hallelujah ! Though I’ll miss wearing lightweight summer fabrics and no socks, it’s time to add a little bit of texture in the next month or so. Now is the time to place your orders for Fall/Winter jackets and suits. Dark colors, lightweight flannels (for AZ), tweeds, holiday dinner jackets/tuxedos, etc. This month is already filling up on the calendar   When I started Magro, I thought it would be cool to wear a suit everyday. Classic, structured suits. I got sick of it pretty quick. Until I tried an unstructured jacket. Since then I’ve been trying to find ways to wear suits in a much more natural way for me and this environment (currently 115 degree weather). But not in this weather still . I can’t add anything beyond a t shirt right now. The beauty of this suit is that I can wear it on a white shirt and tie to a wedding or church, then throw some espadrilles and a short sleeve during the week at fittings, out to dinner, meetings, etc. if you haven’t tried a jacket this like this, it’s time. Fall is coming up, and honestly the only way to wear a heavier/textured wool here in AZ is to lighten the structure, or take it all out to make it comfortable, flexible, and breathable. Hit me up if you’re ready
 Choosing the right fabric is easier than you might expect. The vast majority of fabrics we use to make the suits are wool. In Arizona when we hear wool, we think warm, thick, fuzzy fabrics. These wools are worsted/milled to be smooth, light, and durable. Wool is the best material for your year-round suit. It breathes well in the summer heat, and insulates in the 50 degree winters we have ❄️ . As far as choosing the right color, my best advice is to follow your heart  ♥️  This month I’ve taken advantage of as many trips/vacations as I could and now I’m ready to jump back in the showroom for fittings. Busy season for Magro is coming up. If you need a suit for November/December, now’s the time. Also, some exciting things are coming this fall/winter here!  An amazing photograph I came across the other day. Look at the simple, lightweight structure of their jackets. For some reason around the 80s/90s and on to the 2000s shoulder and chest structure got thicker and thicker. Pinch your suit’s shoulder or chest. If it’s more than 1/2”, it might be time to update your suits - especially if you’re living in the Southwest.  Loved working with this couple! My job is rad because I get to meet awesome, super real people all the time. Love his choice on he suit and how it came out!  @jenbeephotography
