Whether it’s your big prom night or an important job interview, the suit always makes the man. You can charm people, keep them laughing and make them think, in due time. However, first impression lasts. If you want to be liked, wear a suit! Here are a few tips on how to choose a suit that’s right for you. Read the rest of this entry »
To most women, nothing is sexier than a good-looking man in a nice suit. Yes, it’s a wise move to get yourself a suit ASAP! However, you shouldn’t go to the nearest store and grab the first thing you see without even trying it on. A suit must fit just so if it’s going to be flattering. Read the rest of this entry »
Choosing the right clothes impacts how the world sees you. For men, how well you wear a suit is one of most lasting impressions that can be made. It’s inevitable that an occasion will come when you will have to wear a suit. When that time comes you want to be seen in a suit that fits right and makes the right impression. You won’t get a second chance to show the world how good you can look in a suit, so making the right decisions when purchasing a suit is crucial.
A Good Fit
An ill-fitting suit will make you look messy and uncomfortable which is not the image that you want to convey. You may think it’s expensive, but having a custom-tailored suit that fits your body is well worth the money and effort. Buying directly off the rack to save a few bucks is the wrong move to make. Fork up the extra cash to have your suit fitted to your frame. The way a suit fits is a huge consideration that should never be overlooked.
The Right Style
Your next consideration will be on style. You don’t want to show up for an important business meeting wearing a 1970s leisure suit. Maybe you won’t make that big of a mistake but choosing a style that does not go with your look or the occasion can be just as bad as if you did. Be careful because you may be overwhelmed by the different number of styles and cuts there are to consider when purchasing a suit. Find the style that looks best on you, but be sure to get a second opinion; you won’t always notice the little things about a particular cut that someone else will be sure to spot.
Finally, it is important that you choose the right fabric. A 100% wool suit is recommended over other fabrics because it is more attractive and comfortable. A suit that looks great, but is uncomfortable will be more trouble than it is worth. As you are considering fabric choices, factor in colours and choose the combination that is most flattering to you and your style.
You are going to wear your suit more than once, so look at it as a type of investment. Be sure to take all of these factors into consideration and remember to choose a suit that fits well, is stylish and is made from quality, comfortable fabrics. If you follow these general guidelines you will definitely be “dressed for success.”
Too many men choose suits while not really knowing what they are looking. If this is the case, the whole effect turns out to be the very opposite of what they seek. Instead of enhancing their image and making themselves look good, the suit ends up standing out like a sore thumb with disastrous consequences.
Many men make mistakes when selecting a suit because they forget that it is important to choose one that matches their personality. Always remember that what looks good on someone else might not necessarily work for you.
Purchasing men’s suits for general purposes is another problem. It’s much better to select each suit for a specific purpose or event. Is it for a wedding? Or is it for business reasons? Always keep in mind the exact occasion where you will be wearing the suit.
Another question most men fail to consider while fitting a suit is how often they will be wearing it. Answering this question makes it easier on settling on the right type of fabric. If the suit is going to be worn regularly, the quality of the fabric needs to be comfortable and durable. This fabric tends to be very different from that of a wedding suit.
Finally, another important question you will need to ask yourself is how well the colour of your suit goes with the colour of your skin. An extremely pale person can choose a suit colour that will easily make them look like a ghost rather than enhance their looks. The best way to get the colour right is to hold the fabric next to your skin. These days we have software that makes the selection process for colour even easier. Use these tips and make your next suit a real head turner for the right reasons.
Suits have the power to make or break men in a flash. Not surprising since we all know how important first impressions are. Many times when things go wrong it is often because of the small details that were overlooked in the selection process.
For instance, it is very important to buy a shirt and a tie that goes with your new suit. Too many times people focus on the suit and assume that they will find something in their wardrobe that will go with it. Don’t make this mistake because you will only be disappointed and frustrated at the last minute when you are about to go out for that important function.
You would never know it, but the most important factor that is often forgotten or overlooked are buttons. Buttons are supposed to add value to a suit and are even capable of giving a very ordinary fabric the royal look. Bottom line, spend more time and care selecting the right buttons to go with your new suit.
Another critical detail has to do with your choice of accessories that go with your suit. What watch will you wear? How will it look with the expensive pinstripe suit you’ve have selected? What about the shoes? What colour should they be? Is there a danger that they will clash with the colour of your suit rather than complement it? These are important questions you need to ask yourself before purchasing a suit.
There are many fabrics to choose from for men’s suits. In fact there are so many that it can get confusing very quickly. But do remember this important tip. You will rarely go wrong with a good quality wool fabric that is wrinkle free.
