But the question is, how do you get the right fit?
1. Size Down
Most people think they’re a size larger than they really are, so the first thing to try is sizing down. You should feel the suit embracing your shoulders with some firmness to it. If not, just leave it.
2. Watch Your Sleeves
The width of the sleeves is also very important and should end just above the hinges. Having them slimmed down with a custom tailor in Montreal can add substantial value and cut a mean figure. Make sure they fall where the base of your thumb meets your wrist.
3. Body Contouring
To accentuate your shoulders, strong or not, the jacket must contour to your body. Having a tailor nip at the sides is the way to go.
4.The Right Pants
Wearing flat-front pants with a slim cut produce a clean look and, adding a little break at the ankles can’t hurt. In order to prevent seeming any taller than you are, the best way is to ensure that the pants have a longer rise. But if you’re looking for the opposite effect, just shorten the vertical distance from the waist to the crotch.
It’s in the Details
It’s time to talk about all the details that define the style. A large choice of options are available, so you need to focus on the ones that matter most.
A two inch slim lapel gives character to a suit as well as a very modern look. Your flat hand should slip easily into your suit and, if you put a fist in it, it should pull at the button.
6. Two or Three?
Even if a three-button suit jacket with a clean cut can do the job, a two-button with low-button stance is more reliable. No matter what your shape is. If you’re into British style, a ticket pocket is a reliable choice.
Traditional flap or slit pocket? Well, if you agree with us and think the slit is a bit too ’90s, opt for tradition.
Ultimately, your knuckles should be even with the bottom of your jacket when your arms are at your sides. Remember, it’s better to go with dark colors, the body looks slimmer and it will lighten up the appearance of your frame.

The price of the suit you’re buying doesn’t really matter. You can acquire an expensive one from the best tailor in Montreal and look dressed like a scarecrow or a cheap but well-tailored one from an unknown tailor that make you look like a million bucks. Two buttons or three, Flannel or Tweed… you could try any material you want but the only valid truth is: it’s all about fit. If it doesn’t fit right, forget about it.
