If it’s true that clothes really do make the man, then your choice of suit makes an important statement. There are many considerations to take into account when choosing a suit and hopefully this article will help you with those decisions.
Men are often unsure whether to opt for a slim fit suit, a regular fit or some other supposedly different style. The truth is, for the most part it doesn’t really matter. The only thing that does matter is that the jacket and trousers fit correctly and the cut of the suit compliments your body type. Simple.
Business or pleasure?
Business suits usually have a much more formal look than suits that are worn for social occasions. Men’s suits need to breathe well. No man wants to feel hot and be sweaty inside a suit. But they also have to be warm enough so he can feel comfortable on the colder days when he might wear his suit under his overcoat.
Most men have more than one suit. This is a smart thing because it allows him to frequently change from suit to suit. He’ll usually have suits of different colors, but they’ll tend to be in the darker color range, such as black, navy, brown and grey. White suits are not that common, although famed author Mark twain used to wear them regularly.
These suits need to be dry cleaned to stay their best. They’ll be ruined if you try to wash them in a washing machine and a dryer. They are made to high manufacturer specifications so they need to be treated well so they last. But on the whole, these suits are very durable. They’ll keep their look and quality for many years of regular use. With proper care, they’ll continue to give long life to male wearers.
Cheap and cheerful
Suits don’t have to be expensive to be attractive and useful. Suits can be bought for as little as under £100 when retailers have sales. This is a smart time to purchase more than one to take advantage of the great savings.
