It may seem like a simple thing, but a well-fitting suit makes a world of difference to your overall appearance. Here are our top tips for getting the perfect fit right first time and always looking sharp. So take some time to read, measure up for success and enjoy a perfect fit.

The Jacket

  • Your jacket should fit the silhouette of your frame and highlight your shoulders, with your shoulders feeling ever so gently gripped and supported by your suit
  • Take a relaxed stance with your arms art your sides. Cup the bottom of your jacket with your hands, if it bunches in your palms, it’s too long.
  • Sleeves end where the base of the thumb meets the wrist and you should be able to see an ‘inch’ glimpse of shirt fabric.

The Pant

  • Ensure you measure your waist where your pant will actually sit.
  • Beware of the ripple effect – don’t go to big or too baggy.
  • The back of your pant should be a smooth drape over your rear..
  • For the perfect length your pant should just make contact with your shoe, and feature a small single crease in the fabric as it sits on your shoe.

We hope these few handy tips will help you when buying your next suit whether it is for everyday wear or a special event. Shop our range of suiting separates online, or if you are looking for a corporate solution for your team, click the link here to find out how we can help you.
