One of the most difficult jobs of men’s fashion world is suit selection. Selecting men’s suit that fulfils all fashion requirements takes a lot of expertise. Men’s fashion is more than a shirt and pant with a jacket thrown in. Color, style, cut and good fit have to be taken into consideration while selecting the right suit.
An ill-fitting suit would be the right ingredient to spoil any person’s image, as an ill-fitting suit can be observed even from a distance. Hence, instead of shopping for branded suits it is always advisable to look for the right fit and style.
Men’s fashion is all about personality that’s the reason why one should always opt for a retailer who can design a suit which will bring out the personality of the wearer instead of one that makes him look as part of a bandwagon. It is very important that the measurement of the size of shoulders, inseam, sleeves, chest, neck and waist is accurate. The wearer must know his size well before he goes to buy a suit for himself.
The quality and texture of fabric are crucial to men’s fashion world. With changing trends more and more unique fabrics are available today to choose from. Worsted wool is the most preferred fabric for a suit. Mid-weight corded wool is another popular fabric used in men’s fashion suits – mainly because it is non-wrinkled.
A good fitting waist is also a very important factor to be taken care of while shopping for a suit. A standard practice is to place two fingers into the waist while trying out readymade trousers.
The length of the trousers also should be perfect. The edges of the trouser should reach the shoes to give it the attractive look.
As the length of the trousers is important so is the length of the sleeves. An inaccurate length of the sleeves will make the suit look funny. The measurement of the sleeves should be such that they reach the bottom of the hand.
Men’s fashion means to look attractive while keeping up with the latest fashion trends. Styles of jackets too keep changing with the changing trends. Whether it is a classic two buttons jacket or a latest style it would only look good if the fitting and the length compliments the body structure of the wearer.
A good fitting suit sends out a proper message irrespective of the cost and brand. It is very important that the suit should look stylish as well as comfortable because if it is uncomfortable then it shows on the wearer’s attitude.
Despite of having so many experts in this field; it is unfortunate that most men still opt for ill-fitting clothes. This is basically due to little or no knowledge about men’s fashion. The salesmen who are employed by the departmental stores have no or very little knowledge about the style, trends and fits that would best suit a particular individual, hence, they are of no or little help to the shopper.
