Basics Of Mens Suit
Men should always dress smart to accentuate their personality at all places that not only includes a stylish suit but also a proper hairstyle, fashionable accessories and a neat pair of shoes. Before freezing on the type of suit that you would want to buy, you should consider the type of event or occasion that you are attending. If the occasion demands you to be dressed in formals, go ahead and get a nice suit for yourself. But before buying a suit you will need to consider many options such as your taste and personality and physique.
*Types of suits - Conservative men's suits are generally worn by most at professional places. But there are also other types of suits available like the Navy Solid, Charcoal Chalk Stripe, Navy Pinstripe, Charcoal Solid, Tan Solid and Prince of Wales Plaid.
*Navy Solid - Solid Navy looks nice on everyone as it adds cooler tones for those who have clear skin tones and warmer for those who have gold undertones in their skin and hair. It is generally worn at weddings or funerals. It is ideal when you wear it for a dressing evening event, paired with an elegant, pale gold or silver tie.
*Charcoal Chalk Strip - The most classic suit for men is the Charcoal Chalk Stripe and is a perfect day time suit. Always remember that darker shades indicate trustworthiness and stability but if you want to enhance the aura of seriousness and confidence, go for rich charcoal tones.
*Suit jackets - There are various important characteristics of suit jackets that include the fabric from which they are made, color and weight, the style or cut of the suit, the details or trimming applied, the degree of customization to its wearer, etc. But the most essential and important characteristic is the cut - if the suit is poorly cut, it will never look good on the wearer in spite of the suit being of the best quality and detailing.
*Custom tailored suits - A suit's cut is made up of two vital parts which are the overall silhouette and the particular proportions of the man who will be wearing it. The one advantage for buying a custom tailored suit is that the tailor cuts the suit to flatter the wearer's best features and diminish any flaws. Such suits are custom-tailored to the wearer's measurements and are built by hand by a master tailor.
Custom tailored suits in any style of custom clothing with any measurements specification including various torso measurements, chest/waist/height combinations and neck/torso dimension combinations and definitely present very viable sartorial solutions to ill fitting off the rack clothing specially for Big and Tall or Odd sizing.
*Made-to-measure suits - These are off-the-rack suits which are fitted and altered according to the general wearer's frame. Such suits can only be altered to a certain point and will never fit as well as one custom built. As the name suggests, these have no alterations and are made to an average specification and won't fit best for most wearers.
*Suit quality - The quality of a suit is indicated by its trimming and the selection of its details. It also includes pocket styles, linings, button materials and the addition of subtle signals of the suit's quality such as ticket pockets and functional sleeve buttons. Such small elements give an elegant look to the suit's personality and also to the wearer's.
This has given you a general idea of styles, cuts and fabrics that are applied on a suit. But always remember that understanding the basics of classical men's style is important but the person most responsible for the look of the suit is the man wearing it.
