11 tips for choosing and wearing a suit in 2022 ?

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.

Choosing a tailor-made suit

The fit

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.

The fibre or titling of the suit

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.

The movement of your suit

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.

The finishing touches

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 .

Need a lawyer's robe? La Maison de Maître offers you your gown for every purchase of a tailor-made suit.

How to choose your custom-made avocado robe ?

An emblematic piece and a working tool at the same time, choosing the right gown is a major issue for all new lawyers. Before buying your lawyer's gown, study the case carefully! History, materials, codes to respect, the Maison de Maître reviews everything.

Discover our special offer for any purchase of a made-to-measure suit..

History of the lawyer's gown

The current lawyer's gown has its origins in the Middle Ages and the Christian religion. Yes, yes, it is not well known, but lawyers and clergymen were strongly linked. Look at the similarities between the cassock and the lawyer's gown. For a long time, the toga consisted of 33 buttons, like the age of Christ. Lawyers were masters of the word and of eloquence. Thus, their robes distinguished them from the common people and linked them to the royal power, until the French Revolution. Since the 19th century, the gown has been "secularised" and symbolises above all independence, as well as the unity of the profession.

The codes of the lawyer's robe

However, in Belgium as elsewhere, the wearing of the lawyer's gown is still subject to certain very specific codes and may only be worn during pleadings, the taking of the oath by the lawyer or when visiting magistrates Furthermore, the decree of 1 November 1968 regulates the wearing of the gown by stating in particular the material of which it is made: black wool and the obligation to wear the epitome. This strip of cloth is worn over the toga on the left shoulder and is fitted with synthetic or natural fur. The only real evolution concerns the size of the toga. Nowadays, the dress goes down to half the calves. Warning: forget about customising the outside of your gown, it is impossible. However, choose different materials depending on the use of the gown and its comfort level.

Taking care of your avocado gown

One gown, many uses

The life of a lawyer is often very busy. With a rush to court and a gruelling day, the care of the robe often takes a back seat. Sometimes the poor robe is even rolled up in a ball somewhere on a chair. However, the price of a gown, especially a made-to-measure one, is not insignificant: expect to pay between €800 and €2,000, or even more! So take a few simple steps to prolong the life of your professional tool:

To ensure that your gown is as robust as it is ideal for all seasons and temperature variations, pay close attention to the materials..

The materials of the avocado toga

If the avocado robe must keep its black colour (that goes without saying), there are many possibilities concerning its composition! The best gown is a balance of elegance, comfort and robustness. Merino wool: A noble material, it surprises with its insulating and thermoregulatory properties. The other advantage of merino wool is its incredible lightness. You'll forget you're wearing it...

The big day is approaching! Everything is ready ... or almost. Nevertheless, there remains an important point to decide - and not least - that of the choice of the suit of the grooms. From the start, the question arises whether the outfits at a gay wedding should match or whether it is better to play on the opposite. At first glance, there is no direct answer to this question. The golden rule is to always opt for a choice that will allow the two grooms to feel comfortable, and honoured as they should be on this great day, and have a wedding to their taste.

If you have the same morphology as your spouse and you share the same tastes, it is obvious that you will naturally orient your choice towards the same type of suit. This is not a problem, it can actually look very nice. This means you'll be able to agree quicker and have an easier time matching your outfits. Moreover, who says matching outfits does not necessarily say two identical suits. You can think of two suits designed differently or with different finishing touch while using the same fabric. This is where we understand the need to get advice and make costom-made suits.

Matching your suits without choosing identical ones also allows you to tune your outfits even if the grooms have different morphologies. Therefore, everyone will be entitled to tailor-made design while keeping a visual coherence, using the same fabric or revealing a common design made by the tailor.

Choosing a totally identical suit for both grooms is also not totally out of the question. Do not be afraid to be judged or compared, you must also assert yourself as a close-knit couple. Dressing with identical suits can emphasis on the uniqueness of your relationship, the strength of uniting two men and highlight the cohesion of your relationship. Do not forget to drop by a tailor when making this choice. Even if you want the suits to be identical, they may still require adjusting here and there.

One would think that choosing two different types of suits for a gay wedding is a simple choice. Indeed, each chooses the suit that pleases him and that avoids a lot of problems ... But this is wrong. It is possible to find in a mismatched suit, which are diametrically opposed, some coherence in the difference. It is quite possible to bring out the personality of each spouse, to assert their differences, without giving the impression of being two people who have trouble agreeing on an outfit for the day which is supposed to celebrate their union.

By receiving some help and guidance during your suit fitting, an experienced tailor will perfectly understand your desires. It is perfectly understandable and possible to help you look different from each other and to be able to affirm your couple as people with distinct characters and tastes, while guiding you towards choices of suits that will still go perfectly together.


Everyone should have the right to be surprised to discover his companion in the suit for the first time on the wedding day. This tradition should not be reserved for the wedding dress only. If for you, discovering your husband-to-be on the Big Day in his new suit is important, you will quickly realise that it is difficult to choose a suit separately, while also hoping to match.

To avoid unpleasant surprises, it is best to choose a mutual friend or family member to attend your suit fitting and those of your companion. Even simpler, choose the same tailor, who can guide you one after the other.

His advice is valuable because he has a clear vision of the choice of both spouses and if you trust him completely, he can help you find different suits that will remain consistent with each other.
