Common sense you must know about buying a suit
Wearing formal clothes on formal occasions is not only to show your own temperament, but also to respect others. Weddings, conferences, dinners, etc., there are many occasions that require a formal dress or a suit. Especially for men, the styles of men's clothing are far less than those of women, so we can only work on the texture of the clothes, and it is necessary to start with a few suits that are affordable.
What should I pay attention to before buying a suit?
Whether it is ready-to-wear or custom-made, how to choose a suit is also particular. After all, it is not like casual wear, only functional comfort needs to be considered. First, let me tell you what you need to pay attention to before buying a suit.
First the fit:
The fit of a suit can be understood as: it is comfortable and easy to move after wearing it, it is neither tight nor wrinkled; it is not loose and the armholes of the trouser legs are not fat.
When to wear it:
The same is the suit, there are suits for very business orthodox, for daily work activities, for grand and formal dinners...whether it is fabric or style tailoring, there is a big difference. First of all, you need to know which suit you need to wear for the occasion.
1. Design cutting
The usual personal style is also related to the choice of suits. Some friends like plaid British style, some like slender cropped trouser legs, and some like orthodox and serious style. Choose brands and designs with different cultural backgrounds, and the effect of wearing a suit on the upper body is also the same. It varies widely.
Different styles and designs of suits will also have different wearing effects. This also depends on personal preference.
The three most common collar styles for suits are: notch lapel, gun lapel, and shawl collar. It is the first time to try a suit. It is recommended to try the simpler and easier to hold notch lapel collar. You can’t go wrong. It is suitable for both casual and formal occasions.
Today, it is not an absolutely formal and elegant occasion. In fact, there are no hard and fast rules for single-breasted and double-breasted. You can decide according to your own preferences and wearing effects. Relatively speaking, the single-breasted style will look younger, and the double-breasted style is suitable for people with more charm and charm.
There is no big difference in the function of the pocket design, and it has a little influence on the occasion of the try-on. For the first time, it is recommended to consider the classic pocket of the Flap Pocket with a pocket cover. It is casual or formal, and basically you can go wrong.
Back vents are generally reflected in different styles of suits, and the common ones are: no back vents, single vents, and double vents. If the research is not deep, don't worry too much about this detail.
There are three common designs of trousers: no pleats, single pleats, and double pleats. Choose according to the effect of the upper body. The trousers should pursue straight legs, long legs and spirit.
There are cuffed trousers and non-cuffed trousers. Non-cuffed is more suitable for business formal wear, and cuffed is naturally more fashionable and casual. Both trouser legs and trouser pleats should be considered at the same time, there is no rigid requirement, and the design with the best effect should be selected when matched.
2. Fabric technology
I personally feel that in addition to the tailoring design, craftsmanship and fabrics are also the soul of a suit. The so-called details determine success or failure. Craftsmanship and fabrics can largely reflect the texture of a suit, thereby reflecting the taste and attitude of the owner.
The process is divided into four levels, fusible interlining, semi-linen interlining, and full linen interlining. In addition, whether the keyhole is hand-made; whether it is aligned with the grid (to put it bluntly, the lines cannot be misplaced).
3. Measure the size
Understand the data:
When buying ready-to-wear, you must learn to look at the data:
Have an understanding of your own body data, whether it is online shopping or on-site try-on, it can save time and narrow down the selection range. The data that usually needs to be mastered include neck circumference, shoulder width, chest circumference, waist circumference, hip circumference, and arm length. Remember that it is the net size, do not grade it yourself.
The measurement method is very simple, wear a thin underwear, find a soft ruler, and measure according to the following points. It would be better if someone could help to improve the accuracy.
Most brands of ready-to-wear directly use the size number, just like we buy other types of clothes, as long as you know what size you usually wear, you can directly convert.
