Dress Code

As every well-dressed man knows, the most important thing to consider when buying and wearing a suit is the fit. A poor fit can ruin an otherwise great suit. If you are buying a suit off the rack, invest in a good tailor for custom adjustments. Here are some pointers when choosing the perfect suit.


A good suit should hug your shoulder and lie flat, it should not bunch up with a ripple effect or hang over the shoulders. This is the hardest part on a suit to alter, so always ensure that the shoulders fit or it will be too difficult to alter.


The smaller (narrower) the lapel, the more modern the design of the suit.
