I guess men are aware of the fact that lots of women like to see their partners wearing suits. It’s a common dream that has been in girl’s minds for years, if not centuries.
Suits in 2009 and 2010 are as classic as they can be but there are still plenty of things you have to take into an account when choosing a perfect suit for yourself.
Actually there are two main types of suits marked out when talking about shoulder padding – British and Italian (or American).
Personally I like the first, as the shoulder padding extends a bit over the shoulder itself and then rolls down into a sleeve, thus making men’s shoulders look broader. It’s a visual trick. As for the Italian and American type – the shoulder padding ends precisely when the shoulder bone does. So, it’s up to you to decide which of them suits you best.
Number of buttons
The number of buttons a single-breasted suit jacket should have is a matter of personal preference, but think of the following:
• The more buttons the suit has the taller the man wearing it looks – it’s again a visual trick.
• One button has been a fashion trend for a row of seasons and this spring it is still very popular. However, remember that it will look perfect on you only if you are at least 6′ 2″. In case you are shorter prefer a suit with more buttons.
• Two buttons seem the best. It slims the waist, is good about height and really classic.
• Three buttons create a much leaner look but it’s harder to pull off. This type of suits was popular in the 90s of the last century and has made a great comeback this season.
• Four buttons and more. Well, it can be a 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 staple since the mid-20th century, but this season designers have returned towards classic tailoring and the peaked lapel that was in fashion in 1920s. Though if you choose notched lapels you won’t look out-of-date, too.
Cloth for a Suit
The price of your suit depends largely on the fabric it is made from. But selecting the right fabric is essential.
Cotton is good for suits as it is warm in winter and cool in summer. However, it has drawbacks either: it’s best only as an informal or fashion suit and it creases easily. The perfect colors are black, grey and navy.
Linen is ideal for hot, humid summer days. Choose brown, white and cream colors to create the most impressive look.
Wool is favorite for suits. But you should be very careful when picking your suit, for you may pay lots of money and get no result. I mean even the most expensive wool suits may fall apart in a few seasons.
So, look for good quality. Wool suit is perfect on both cold and hot days.
And the last thing to mention here – don’t be afraid much of suit’s propensity to creasing, it’s all a part of the fabric’s charm.
