Weddings, proms, important meetings or banquets are occasions for which it is necessary to wear a suit. This elegant and stylish, although not liked by all men, outfit is a must have in every man’s closet. See how to choose the right suit for yourself.
Choose the cut that best fits your figure
As there are so many men, there are so many silhouettes, that’s why there are so many different cuts of suits, which are designed to meet the needs of all men. When choosing a suit, focus primarily on how it fits you. Pay attention to whether the jacket is too tight in the shoulders, whether it stretches or wrinkles in the back. Check the length and width of the sleeves and make sure you can lift your arms easily. The length of the jacket itself is also important – it should completely cover your buttocks and end exactly in the line of your thighs. This way it divides the silhouette in half and looks the most advantageous. A well-fitted jacket will be comfortable and will emphasize the assets of your body
Pants also need to be chosen with great care. They should not be too tight. Freedom of movement is very important, especially if you want to dance on the dance floor in a suit. Make sure that you can squat comfortably in your suit pants, that they do not crease at the thighs or buttocks, and that your underwear does not show through
Pay attention to the quality of the material
If you’re choosing a suit that’s going to last you for years and not be a nuisance at parties, pay attention to what it’s made of. Artificial, non-breathable materials are a recipe for disaster on hot days or on a crowded dance floor. If you want to avoid excessive sweating and odor, opt for men’s suit made of natural material. They are admittedly a bit more expensive, but it is not an unnecessary expense, but an important investment in your comfort and health. You will see that your skin will thank you for it
Importantly, some suits made from natural fabrics still have artificial linings, so you still get the effect as in a synthetic fabric. Pay attention to the composition of the lining material, and don’t be afraid to ask the store for help if you’re having trouble judging whether the material is actually free of artificial admixtures.
Choose a suit that you like
The most popular suits over the years have been plain black, navy blue or gray, but times and trends change. If you feel comfortable in a patterned outfit that makes you stand out from the crowd, don’t hesitate to choose one. You are the one to please yourself and you are the one to feel handsome and confident in it. If a red, green or yellow suit gives you that, don’t follow the advice of others. The only exception where you should determine in advance what you want to choose is when buying a wedding suit. Don’t try to surprise your future wife with an extravagant outfit. Warn her if you want to wear something less classic on your wedding day, make sure it won’t be a problem for her and talk about it before shopping. It is a stressful day for both of you, it is better not to add to your worries.
A suit should not be an uncomfortable and unpleasant chore to wear on bigger occasions, but an outfit in which you will feel like Agent 007 himself in Her Majesty’s Secret Service. In a well-fitting suit that you like, and in which you like yourself, you will definitely look and have fun
