So you want to look prim and proper in a suit for an upcoming event? The right suit can make a boy or man look charming.
If you do not wear suits often, then chances are you probably don’t have a clear idea on how you are supposed to look in it. So, let’s find out how to get dressed up properly.
Choose a tie that has the same width as your lapels. Modern lapels are thinner as opposed to the old-school ones, which are broader.
These are the seams on a jacket that give it a fitted look. Make sure the dart’s are their thinnest around the main button.
The sleeve length should ideally reveal a half inch of your shirt cuff. You do not want it to be too long as this looks sloppy or too short as this does not look professional. We want an elegant, classy look.
It is important that the seam on your shoulder fits your structure naturally. Shoulder pads should stop by the end of your shoulders.
Choose a higher armhole cut since it enhances your physique, thus making you look classier. This is an obvious choice, but many do not take advantage of.
If your jacket has two buttons, never fasten both buttons. If it has three always secure the middle button and never touch the lowest one, while you can fasten the top button sometimes. You always want to leave some room to move and having different buttons buttoned up allows for suit jackets to look unique.
It should not exactly match either the pattern or the fabric of the tie. This is a nice accessory to add some style and flare to your suit.
Relax your hands and see if the hem of your jacket touches the middle of your palm. If not then you have some adjustments to make as it should reach the middle of your palms.
Check whether it fits well by ensuring there are no horizontal wrinkles or u-shaped bunching right below your rear end. This helps from the embarrassment of having pants that wedgie up.
Thinner men should avoid pleated trousers, but it is okay if worn in a suit. Always make sure you wear the pants on your waist. Do not let them fall below your waistline as this looks sloppy.
The break is the slight wrinkle at the base of your pants. This is where the full fall of the cuff is prevented by the top of the shoe.
So now that you know what to look for in a suit to look like a style icon, it’s time to get yourself one now.
