A selfie is a photo you take of yourself. A “suitfie” is a photo you take of yourself in a suit — and they’re starting to bubble up on Instagram.
Well-dressed men the world over are taking pictures of themselves in their favourite suits and using the new hashtag. It’s sort of a mix between outfit of the day (#ootd) and #menswear.
See for yourself:
According to a Websta.me search, there are over 1,300 selfies tagged as suitfies, so the community is in a relatively nascent stage.
There don’t appear to be any hard-and-fast rules on what constitutes a suitfie. Some photos are taken in the traditional selfie style, with a front-facing camera or mirror, while others are taken by someone else or a via remote set-up tripod.
The main difference between suitfies and selfies is that with a suitfie the person’s head usually isn’t in the frame. All eyes should be on your sharp suit.
