There are many dos and don’ts when it comes to how to wear the suit and its individual pieces. Our easy guide will give you help you.
Let’s start with…
Top button: should sometimes be buttoned
Middle button: should always be buttoned
Lower button: should never be buttoned
Single vs. Double Breasted Jacket:
The single breasted suit is the most common of suit jackets. It can be dressed up with a peak lapel, and can be customized in different fabrics and colors.
The double breasted (DB) suit is a statement itself; when having your suit tailored, decide your color and pattern wisely. Remember to always keep this jacket buttoned, even when sitting.
Next we have the shirt.The first rule is to always buy a fitted dress shirt.
Shirt & Tie:
The tip of your tie should meet your belt line, and your tie bar should be worn between the third and fourth button hole in your shirt.
Your pants are the base of your look, and they should sit at the top of your hip bones, just below your navel. You should have some drape, but be careful so it doesn’t look as though your pants are too large. To ensure the best fit is to visit Tailor4Less and have your pants custom made.
Socks & Shoes
Pay attention to details: make sure your socks match or complement your trousers – details matter a great deal! A great shoe to wear with your tailored Tailor4Less suit is the Oxford shoe. If you want to take down the formality of the suit, wear a brown shoe.
