In this article you will learn what style of suit you should have in your wardrobe. I know, you’re thinking, I don’t really wear suits anymore, other than to weddings and an unexpected funeral. That is exactly why, if you own one or two suits, you should have the proper suit hanging in your closet.
“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success” Alexander Graham Bell
Shopping for suiting can be a frustrating experience for many reasons:
Let’s start by understanding and embracing the fact that you don’t, nor should you expect to fit into an off the rack suit! No two men are created the same. You have a unique body and your style preferences are something that helps define who you are.
If you are lucky enough to have a quality department store near you, it is often lacking in customer service and selection.
Some of the trendier smaller stores don’t cater to timeless elegance but rather to fashion pieces.
When you work with Roaring Fashions, our focus is always on selecting the right garments that fit your style, your body and your personality.
Whether you are buying a polo shirt, pair of golf trousers, a suit or updating your entire wardrobe, each of the following items will be carefully considered.
A great suit encompasses several key elements that will contribute to your overall appeal and attraction:
Fit: The fit of a suit is crucial. It should be tailored to your body shape, accentuating your best features while maintaining comfort and freedom of movement.
Fabric: High-quality fabrics like wool, cashmere, or silk blends not only offer a luxurious feel but also drape well and resist wrinkles. The fabric's weight and texture should be appropriate for the occasion and climate.
Construction: Pay attention to the suit's construction, including details like well-sewn seams, reinforced stitching, and quality lining. This ensures durability and longevity.
Style: Classic and timeless suit styles like single-breasted or double-breasted with peak or notch lapels are versatile options. Opt for neutral colors such as navy, charcoal, or gray, as they are versatile and suitable for various occasions.
Details: Attention to detail can elevate a suit's overall appearance. This includes pick stitching, either hand made or machine made, properly proportioned coat and trousers, “real” functional sleeve buttons, lining and piping options, style and quantity of pockets……. This list is vast!
Accessories: Complementing the suit with appropriate accessories is essential. A well-chosen tie, pocket square, belt, and dress shoes can enhance the overall look and create a cohesive ensemble.
Confidence: Ultimately, a great suit is worn with confidence. When you wear your custom suit, you will look incredible and you will feel comfortable, empowered, and poised.
