Suits have been around since the early 17th century, and have endured countless generations without changing much, a testament to their versatility and style. For anyone looking to look like a modern gentleman, suits are the number-one choice. Delivering good looks while still giving off an air of professionalism, suits are the obvious choice for anyone in the office.
Yes getting a suit is never really as simple as walking into your local store and making a purchase. Suits are a dime a dozen, but if what you’re looking for is true quality, you might need to look into different options. We’d always recommend custom-tailored suits, which are made to fit your particular body shape and size.
Now before you go out to make your suit, you need to figure out what color you want to work with. Suits come in many different colors, and you’re spoilt for choice. When it comes to office suits, people will commonly recommend black or navy, and we agree!
Look on the news and you’ll find black suits being worn by celebrities and public figures alike. Black is an excellent color that works well in the evening sunlight, as well as indoor lighting. Something to note is that black suits work well in casual situations too, meaning you can lose the tie after work and still look great.
Navy is commonly associated with the finance sector. Navy suits have a professional edge to them. If you want to wow your clients at meetings, this is the way to go, but just bear in mind, it might not work well in casual settings.
Want to stand out? We’d recommend trying out shades of gray. With so many hues to choose from, you can definitely find something that suits your skin complexion. And that’s what really matters, as long as you find something that works for you, you’ll be good.
We find that the choice between off-the-shelf solutions and tailor-made suits really comes down to price. Suits you find ready-made are designed to fit the majority of people, meaning that you’ll find that they always feel just a bit off, restricting your movement when they’re too small, and feeling uncomfortably baggy when they are too large.
Tailor-made suits, on the other hand, come with a guarantee that they fit nicely. Instead of getting what you see, a trained tailor will be taking your measurements. This means every detail of your figure will be noted down. This ranges from your waist size, shoulder breadth, down to the nitty-gritty details such as your back arch and stomach size. A skilled tailor will be using these details that make a suit that flatters your strong points and accommodates your weak points.
The greatest thing about custom suits? They fit and feel comfortable. Every fitting session ensures that your tailor of choice won’t go wrong. If anything feels off, it will be noted down and corrected before your final suit is delivered.
Finally, you make the choices regarding fabrics and designs of custom suits. Before anything even happens, you’ll be making the decisions from start to finish.
