1. Go somewhere you enjoy the experience.
Getting a tailored suit is an experience. Make sure that you enjoy it. The place should have a nice vibe, something nice to drink or eat, and have a pleasant conversation with the tailor.
2. Get measured and make sure you are comfortable.
Most people mistakenly think they know their size. You would be surprised what you find out! And remember, you are going to be in this suit for the majority of the day so make sure it’s the right fit and the right comfort level.
3. Always stay classy and simple when choosing a suit.
Sublety adds a lot of variety to your wardrobe. This will allow your suits to be as versatile as possible.
4. Whites and blues are best with shirt patterns.
Stay subtle with your shirt patterns. If you want to go a little crazy, a light pink or purple hint to your shirt will be just fine.
5. Take a risk here and there.
Don’t be too boring. Add a flashy tie or a surprising button to your wardrobe!
6. Your suits should be versatile.
We understand that you work very hard, but we know you want to go out once in a while too. Your suit should be ready for a night out right when you are. A wider collar is a little wilder and exposes the tie a little more.
7. When you see something you like at a store, imagine it in your wardrobe.
Make sure that what you buy matches your other articles of clothing. Don’t buy a shirt if you don’t have a complementary tie. This is another reason as to why you should stay simple when starting your wardrobe.
8. Listen to your tailor.
He’s got years of experience. He knows how style has evolved and he’s been dressing the classiest gentlemen in town. Just tell him what you’re like, and he’ll make you happy.
Every man needs a suit. That is a given. Some may need more than others, but it’s a given that you need at least one (or maybe three). If you’re a businessman, or if you wear suits regularly, you should seriously invest in a well-tailored suit. Here are some tips for getting that perfect suit:
