Men's Suit

Women like to see their partners wearing suits. That is why suits this year are as classic as they can be but there are still some factors that you have to consider when choosing a best suit for yourself.

Shoulder Length

There are two main types of suits when talking about shoulder padding - British and Italian/American.

The British type has a shoulder padding that extends a bit over the shoulder itself and then rolls down into a sleeve, it makes the men’s shoulders look broader. While the Italian/American type has a shoulder padding that ends precisely when the shoulder bone does.

So, it’s up to you to decide which of them suits you best.

Number of buttons

Consider the number of buttons of a single-breasted suit jacket for your personal preference:

The more buttons makes the men look taller.

One button has been a fashion style for a row of seasons and this spring it is still very popular. But keep in mind that it will fit you only if you are at least 6′ 2″ in height. If you are shorter prefer a suit with more buttons.

Two buttons seem the best because it makes the waist look slim and it is also good about height and really classic.

Three buttons create a much leaner look but it’s harder to pull off. This style was famous way back in the 90s of the last century and has made a great comeback this season.

Four buttons and more can be a personal choice and it is a trend of this season but the model itself doesn’t look very well.

Think twice before buying such a suit.


Notched lapels have become the popula since the mid-20th century, but this season designer clothes have returned towards classic tailoring and the peaked lapel that was in fashion in 1920s.

Cloth for a Suit

Selecting the right fabric is essential because the price of your suit depends largely on the fabric it is made from.

Cotton is good for suits because it warms in winter and cool in summer. Yet it has flaws either: it’s perfect only as an informal or fashion suit and it crumples easily. The best colors are black, grey and navy.

Linen is best for hot, humid summer days. Go for brown, white and cream colors to make the most impressive look.

Wool is the best for suits as it is perfect on both cold and hot days. However, you should be very careful when choosing your suit, for you may spend lots of money and get no result. Because even the most expensive wool suits may split up in a few seasons. So, look for good quality.

Don’t be afraid much of suit’s tendency to crumple, it’s all a part of the fabric’s charm. Just express yourself and be confident.
