Staying in the Lines: Designers Redefine the Striped Suit

The classic pin-striped suit, often considered a trademark of bankers and business tycoons, has been updated this season with a contemporary edge in trim silhouettes and a fresh array of fabrics. Here are some of our favorites from the fall designer runways.

Christina Garofalo 

Z Zegna’s ultrasoft wool suit features wide-set pinstripes in burnt orange—the perfect pop of color for fall. ($1,745; www.zegna.com)  

Alexander McQueen is sending stripes in a new direction—literally. The wool-and-cashmere suit features black and white pinstripes patchworked together along the peak lapel and tailored trouser. ($3,620; www.alexandermcqueen.com)

Dries Van Noten opts for alternating pinstripes on a navy wool suit, which has a more relaxed image. ($1,200 blazer, $1,125 trousers; www.driesvannoten.be)

Giorgio Armani printed its pinstripes on a short jacket (just 27.5 inches) with structured shoulders giving the appearance of greater breadth. ($5,090; www.armani.com)
