Helping the Man in Your Life to Buy the Perfect Suit

We all like our partner to look their best. Looking good helps to boost their confidence and, of course, a well-dressed man always looks more attractive.

It is surprising how transformational a nice suit can be. Virtually every man looks better when they are wearing a well-fitted suit.

Shop in the right places

Large retailers like Jacamo sell hundreds of different suits and waistcoats. Importantly, their designers cater for men of all shapes and sizes. If you are buying an off the peg suit having access to a choice of cuts is vital. So, it is wise to shop with those retailers that stock a good selection.

The ability to mix and match each item

If you find a store that is happy to sell the jackets, waistcoats, and trousers separately, always shop with them. Having this level of flexibility makes it far the easiest way to get the fit just right. When it comes to body type there is a lot of variation in the male population.

A cut that looks good on one man will not necessarily be the right choice for another. For example, a man who works out is likely to find the jacket of an ordinary suit to be too tight. Even if the cut is suitable they are likely to need a jacket that is several sizes bigger than the trousers. Being able to buy each component of the suit separately gets around this issue nicely.

Identify your man’s body type

Working out which body type the man you are buying for has and shopping accordingly is the best way to make the right choice. You can find out how to do this by clicking here.

Quality matters

You do not necessarily have to spend a fortune to be able to buy a nice suit, but the quality certainly plays a role in how good the suit looks. Before buying test the seams to make sure they are strong enough. Take a critical look at the fabric used. If it creases easily when you scrunch a section of the trousers up in your hand it is best to choose another. A suit that creases easily will look really awful after just a few hours of wear.

The right accessories

Finishing off the suit with nice accessories is important. Make sure that you buy at least two matching shirts and ties.

Again, when buying accessories focus on quality. Bear in mind that there will be times when the suit wearer will need to go jacketless. Buying nice shirts will ensure that they look as good as possible when they do so.

Given the latest waistcoat trend, it makes sense to buy a three-piece rather than a two-piece suit. They cost a little more but they definitely provide the suit wearer with more choice.
