DON’T LET THE FIT LET YOU DOWN
Fit is a major key to pulling off the suit. Even if you get an “off the rack” suit, you can get it altered to fit and balance as it should.
SHOULDER: the suit should sit flat on the shoulder, the top of the jacket on the shoulder should be the same length as the bone underneath.
TROUSER BREAK: this is up to a personal preference but the general rule is that the trouser cuff should fall neatly at the top of your shoe.
THE MID SECTION: the jacket should be brought in slightly roughly at the waist to better complement your shape, and this isn’t a difficult adjustment. When buttoning the jacket, it should close without creating strain, and there should not be loose fabric around the mid-line.
SLEEVE LENGTH: the jacket sleeve should show half an inch of the shirt cuff.
MATCH YOUR LEATHER
This is a simple rule a lot of guys forget to apply. If your are opting for a brown/black pair of shoes, go for a brown/black belt to match. The color grade doesn’t have to match perfectly but do avoid the brown belt black she combination.
UNBUTTON YOUR SUIT BEFORE SITTING DOWN
When sitting, a gentleman should unbutton his suit and fasten them together again when standing up.
