How to Buy a  Tailored Suit and Do it Right

 Every man needs a tailored suit. Let’s face it: it is important to pick a fitted suit from the right fabric.  Follow these simple tips, and you will do it right.

For every day use, your best bet will be to pick a versatile color like a shade of grey or navy. The jacket’s shoulder pads are supposed to be square with your shoulders. If  shoulder pads droop off, most likely the jacket is too big. The jacket sleeves should not go lower than the base of the thumb. If this happens, go for a smaller size or have them trimmed.

Know what you need the suit for. Is it work? Job interview? Wedding?

Fabric: Suits are mostly made out of wool. At the upper end,  wool blended with cashmere are common. For hot weather, linen and cotton are available, but most suits are still made of wool.

Choose the right fabric. Give it a tight squeeze, does it bounce back to life quickly, with little to no visible wrinkling? If the answer is yes, it means that this material sturdy.

Wool fineness is called by “super number.” First, the super number describes the fineness of the fibers. The higher the number, the thinner the fabric and the smoother and silkier the cloth. Second, super number gets bigger the fineness of wool.  Any fabrics ranging in  180’s and above are expensive. This does not necessarily means that this fabric is better. This fabric is softer and might show signs of wear sooner. Wool with a “super number 120’s” may the best choice fabric for a suit that will be worn often.
