a suit sounds simple but practical is never easy. Every gentleman needs at
least one suit in his closet for meetings and partners. The following
suggestions will make everything simpler, from choosing a suit that fits the
best to shaping your smart style.
Men’s suits have long
been a benchmark for the gentleness, discipline of a true gentleman. A regular
male suit includes a lot of different details that we must understand before choosing
the right style for ourselves.
THE MOST REGULAR SUIT
Comfortable but still
elegant, the single-breasted suit (one-button suit) is the most common male
suit style because they are easy to wear for many human shape. Typically,
single-breasted suits and blazers will have from 2 or 3 buttons and V-shaped
lapels. In addition, this style is also suitable for both outdoor activities
and work. Single-breasted suit jackets are usually simple, flexible and never
outdated. Therefore, this is the favorite item for men of all ages. The
single-breasted suit, besides, doesn’t feel heavy either. We can mix it with a
big cape over the outside or a shirt, a t-shirt and even a sweater underneath.
“double-breasted” refers to a jacket or cloak with two parallel
buttons, each row from 2 to 4 buttons. Normally we only install one or two
buttons on the top, otherwise it will make the shirt too cramped and formal
than necessary. After a long period of development, this formal male suit has
now been redesigned to better suit modern breathing. We can easily catch the
current trendy gentlemen like David Gandy or Lino Leluzzi using this suit. An
elegant and appropriate double-breasted suit will be an upgrade to your
wardrobe, so you do not have to hesitate to choose the outfit for the occasion.
Blazer is the most
comfortable and lightest suit you can find today. While still somewhat original
in its fashion, the blazer has now evolved so much that it suits every style
and age. Blazer can easily be paired with jeans or chinos. The best part of a
blazer is their versatility. You can wear a blazer with a t-shirt, a shirt or
even a long sleeve shirt; go with sneakers or a pair of brogues. Although this
male suit may not be too formal, this is a perfect change if you want to get
rid of cumbersome outfits.
Notch Lapel, also known
as V-lapel, is the most popular lapel. When you look closely at a suit, the
collar and the lapel meet and create an angle of about 90 degrees, which is the
definition of this lapel. Notch lapel is the most common and easy-to-wear
lapel, suitable for all activities, all styles and all shapes of boys.
Contrary to notch
lapel, shawl lapel has no intersection point between collar and lapel. Smooth
ticks are designed to run from the front of the suit to the back and are
usually made from shiny satin or silk fabric. Although this is also a good choice,
boys need to pay attention to the nature of the party before wearing a slick
suit. Shawl lapel feels much more mature and is only suitable for really formal
ceremonies such as gala, wedding or red carpet ceremony, not suitable for work.
This detail is small but it says a lot about a gentleman who knows how to dress
Peak lapel is the type
that is sewed upside down with sharp edges located near your shoulder. Compared
to the other 2 types of ticks, the slanted tick looks like a powerful man with
a dignified position. That’s why they often go with a double-button suit and
should only bring special events that require authority and solemnity.
Go to the back of a
suit, you will see the slits. These were originally created to make it easier
for men to move in suits. You will notice that some shirts have a slit in the
middle, while others have two slits on the sides. Although the same purpose,
the flexibility that the saws bring is different. Centre vent or single vent suitable
for men with moderate body, do not need to move too much. This is also the kind
of slashing common in traditional American men’s suits – comfortable, free but
less respectable to the wearer.
Side vent or double
vent (split sides) is a great choice for modern boys. These cuts allow the
wearer to look at the same time giving them the flexibility they need in every
move. This traditional English shirt also helps the gentlemen to wear more
suits without having to worry about their bodies too big or too small – they
will help you look more “fit”.
No vent is often
favored by Italian gentlemen. This style is suitable for guys with a small
body, short or slightly round. An unreasonable suit will hug the hips of the
guys, helping them look more fit. In addition, suits like this often come with
shoulder pads, making them significantly taller. However, this male suit style
also has certain limitations because when you sit, the shirt is easily wrinkled
due to the overlapping fabric lines. The fix is to remove the buttons of the
jacket when you sit down.
Patch pocket is the
most common type, the easiest to make. Floating bags are sewn directly on the
fabric without having to go through the shell or lining. The shape and size of
the floating bag can vary as much as you like. Round-shaped floating bags with
folded corners are more popular, while square-shaped bags are preferred. Patch
pocket is often used to cover the seams of the suit, helping us to have a
comfortable, less dignified men’s suit.
Welt pockets are
usually rectangular in shape and have 1 to 2 borders. This type of bag brings
the most formal feeling, often appearing with all kinds of uniforms. They are
often colored with costumes and look like a small guy horizontally across your
suit. A suit with welt pockets will make you look sharper and more powerful.
This is also one of the
most popular pocket type. While the patch pocket looks more comfortable and
more modern, the jet pocket gives you the exact opposite. The Jet pocket is
sewn almost entirely on the inside of the suit. If the floating pocket is seen
as an “attachment” on your shirt, the jet pocket is inserted into the
middle of the suit fabric layers. This way, your suit looks smoother and more
decent. Tuxedo is the style that suits you the most.
