THE DETAILS MATTER

However, buying a made to measure suit or a ready to wear suit off the rack is fine as long as you are getting it tailored for custom adjustments for a great fit for your body type. There are some easy tips to keep in mind when you are looking for a great fit. Your jacket should fit flat on your shoulder and it should close with the top button without any wrinkles or strain. Your sleeve length should never hide your shirt sleeve a half inch is just perfect. A good fit on a jacket means having the right jacket length. The collar of your suit jacket should be fitted to your neck, watch out for collar gap. Key decisions to make include, single breasted or double breasted, besom or flap pockets, taper, no vent, single vent, double vent, cuffs or no cuffs.
