Dress Guide ::
Knowing the generally acceptable dress code helps you choose the right clothes for occasions where the invitation stipulates formal dress. Whilst it’s not always necessary to comply with dress etiquette, you have to know the rules before you can break them with style.
About Suit ::
Think of the kind of suit you need before buying.
This helps you and the sales assistant choose the right kind of suit featuring the properties you require.
1.The shirt should be visible under the collar
2.The jacket collar fits closely around the neckline
3.The collar is soft and easily falls into shape
4.The shoulders sit well and the seam of the sleeve head is smooth
5.The jacket rises only slightly when raising the hands
6.The seams are straight and smooth
7.When fitting, the trouser bottoms should be about 1 cm off the ground when no shoes are worn.
About Shirt ::
The shirt is the piece of clothing that is closest to your body; it needs to act almost like your second skin. Therefore when choosing a shirt, it is very important that it fit right. When buttoned, the collar should be loose enough to comfortably insert one finger between your neck and the collar.
Tips : If your face is broad and your neck is thick, a tiny collar will look out of balance. At the same time, a shirt with long points will overwhelm a small man with delicate features.
About Trousers ::
The cut of today’s tailored suit trouser is more in the fitted era. Trousers have the hip-hugging jeans mentality of the sixties and the tight, plain-front Continental trouser of the
seventies. In the nineties, most men’s trousers have a longer rise, deeper pleats, and full-cut thighs that taper down to the ankles – exactly the way the great tailors originally
designed them – to give comfort and follow the lines of the body.
While having your trousers fitted, make sure the pleats are not opening . Look down to see if each leg’s front crease intersects the middle of each kneecap and finishes in the
middle of each shoe. If it is off at all, the crease should err toward the inside of the trouser. A crease that falls outside the knee creates the illusion of breadth, something most men prefer to avoid.
Custom – Made Clothes ::
Wearing something created expressly for one’s body and mind is an intoxicating luxury particularly for men accustomed to buying off the rack. After realizing what such personalized raiment can do for him both physically and psychologically, it is the rare man who doesn’t become a convert for life. Even in today’s culture of instant gratification, a large majority of the world’s best dressed men still go to the effort and expense of having their clothes custom made. Bespoke fashion allows its wearer to act, in concert with whatever skilled craftsmen he has chosen, as the architect of his own look.
This collaboration usually produces a dressing style that is individual and worldly.
Custom-made apparel is the product of exact measurements taken on a known individual. It’s the difference between designing a garment on a real person and designing one for an imaginary figure. No ready-to-wear garment, no matter how well it is altered, can ever be as accurately fitted as one made by a skilled craftsman who constructs it right over the bones and bumps of his client. The maker must be an artist who can compensate for whatever nature has withheld. In cases where a considerable remolding of the client’s form is required, the end result can become a glorified abstraction of subject’s better self.
The advantages of well-designed custom-made wearable over off-the-peg are significant and self-evident. With proper rotation and care, handmade apparel will outlast any item produced in a factory.
