The suit is clothing every man should own, and it’s something that always make you look and feel good. There are some people or lets say guys that always say ‘I’m not really a suit person’ but dont forget there will be occasions e.g weddings, job interviews, events and more that you’ll be required to wear a suit to.
This article is here to help, as we look at some rules that will help us when wearing a suit.
1. DON’T USE THE BOTTOM BUTTON ON YOUR BLAZER
When wearing a two-button blazer, you should always unfasten the bottom button on the jacket. This offers a better fit and allows you to move freely. On a three-button suit either button just the middle button or the top two. Sounds simple enough, but a lot of guys make the mistake of buttoning up the wrong way so be careful.
2. DON’T LET THE FIT LET YOU DOWN
Fit is really the only way of wearing a suit best. If your suit is not fitting there’s high probability it won’t look good. If you buy a big or oversized suit you can always get it to be as fitting as it should. Here are some things to consider…
Shoulders – The blazer should sit flat on your shoulder and the top of the shoulder on the jacket should be the same length as the bone underneath it.
The Trouser – this ain’t really important but a general rule is the trouser cuff should fall nicely at the top of your shoe. The trouser will often fall a little bit longer at the back then at the front.
The Mid Section – The jacket should be brought in slightly roughly at the waist to better complement your shape, and this isn’t a difficult adjustment. When buttoning the blazer it should close without creating strain.
The Sleeve Length – More on this in a minute, but the jacket sleeves should show half an inch of shirt cuff. They’re too long if the pass your shirt, and they’re too short if the show more than an inch of cuff.
3. MATCH YOUR LEATHERS
This is a simple rule but a lot of guys don’t apply this. For example If you will be wearing for a brown pair of shoes, go for a brown belt to match. The colour grade doesn’t have to match perfectly, but avoid the black belt and brown shoes combination.
4. UNBUTTON YOUR SUIT BEFORE SITTING
When sitting, unfasten the buttons on your blazer. When standing up again, fasten them as you should. That’s the way it should.
5. EXPOSE YOUR SLEEVE CUFFS HALF AN INCH
As stated above, this small detail can make a huge impact. It’s a minor adjustment to alter the sleeve
lengths on your jacket and you’ll want them to expose half an inch of shirtsleeve. When letting your hands rest down at your side your shirtsleeve should finish at your wrist, not fall over your hand.
6. REMOVE STITCHING ON THE VENTS OF YOUR NEW SUIT
There are so many guys that forget to remove the stitching on the vents before wearing their suits. When you buy a new suit you’ll find the vents at the back (if you have). They are stitched up, alongside the pockets. Remove the stitching before wearing the suit.
7. DON’T STUFF YOUR POCKETS
Guys always make the mistake of putting a lot things in their trouser pockets like phones, car key, cards, wallets and so on. If your trousers fit as they should, you’ll often find the offer a slimming appearance.
