When it comes to suits and male elegance, there are many codes and rules to master. But don't panic, to avoid faux pas and style mistakes (never irreparable), here are a few tips for choosing and especially wearing your suit.
It is the structuring element of your suit and therefore the most important one (along with the material). A well cut suit is a timeless piece of clothing. Choose a straight cut to be comfortable in your movements and to emphasize your silhouette. Whether you are tall and slim, or overweight, a nice straight cut suit is your best friend.
Directly related to the fit, the perfect suit should be comfortable. But fit is not everything, you have to think about the fabrics and the quality of the suit design The better the materials, the better your suit will stand up to the seasons, although there is no perfect material that will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer (one can always dream). However, Super 150's wool suits are a perfect compromise for, say, an everyday suit .Merino wool isparticularly appreciated by our tailors for creating high quality suits.
In the jargon, we often use the terms Super 80's, Super 100's or Super 160's wool suit... But what do they mean? Simply the fineness of the fibre. The higher the number, the finer the fibre and the number determines the number of fibres woven per cm2. Thus, a Super 80's suit will be very strong and thick, with gooddurability. A Super 220's suit is made of finer fibres and is therefore more fragile. Also observe the weight of your suit (i.e. the weight of the fabric per metre) and adapt it to the use of your suit. For example, a fabric weighing less than 150g/m is light, so it is best for summer temperatures.
Wearing a suit well often means beingtailor-made. And why is that? Because every body shape, every style, every personality is different. A suit should be a unique piece of clothing and therefore a tailor-made suit is the perfect solution to reflect your character. Your suit should move with your body, it should accompany your movement and should not be a hindrance. A beautiful tailored suit should have flattering lines.
Pay attention to the finishing touches of your bespoke suit because the devil is in the details: shoulders, interlining, buttons, lapels, lining of the jacket and sleeves, pockets... By opting for a bespoke suit, you guarantee a better finish and therefore a better durability of your suit .
Here are a few tips that will make a difference when wearing them.
