A suit has been something that’s representing class and elegance for many years now. And when people say “a suit is a suit” they’re terribly wrong. There are many things that you need to know before buying your suit and it’s definitely not a “one size fits all” option. In this article, we’re covering suits and what you need to know about them before making the decision to purchase.
It’s not a one-time investment
For some reason, guys are trained to think of suits as a one-time expensive investment. This is pretty wrong and let me tell you why. Buying a suit is not like buying a car. You can’t and should not have just one or two at most. You can have a different suit for each day of the week. How? By making the right decision before buying. And this is where we start with the first tip.
More expensive doesn’t mean a better fit
This is much related to what we mentioned a second ago. Spending tons of money on a suit just because it’s a very known and expensive brand does not mean it will look good on you. Yes, sometimes the more expensive brands have more options, features and what not, but you can still look amazing in a custom made or a cheaper less known brand without breaking your bank.
Travel suits are what people will usually see you wear the most. It’s the suit that you wear to your work office, the one that you catch a flight with and probably the one you’re doing a business meeting with. It’s not just about getting one that looks really good, travel clothes are what you’re wearing the majority of your time. Which means it should be really, and I mean really comfortable. Imagine having to wear something that drives you crazy for 10 hours straight while being under the stress of your job and everyday activities. Finding your best travel suits is not an easy task but you will be really grateful when you get the one that matches you perfectly in every way. It’s like finding your soulmate.
The style of your suit
We mentioned earlier that buying a suit is not like buying a car. Although we all value and want quality out of our purchase, sometimes we don’t want our suit to last forever. Why is that? Well, fashion is something that changes real fast, real frequently. Remember that time when your dad pulled out a pair of jeans that he used to wear 30 years ago and you just gave him that weird look? Well, if you keep your suits for the same amount of time and keep wearing them afterward, people are going to give you the exact same look when you show up in them. I’m not saying that having a good quality suit is a bad idea, but sometimes things need to change, and you should let them change.
Another useful tip is understanding that having the best suit will still not help you if it’s not designed for you and your physique. Make sure you take accurate body measurements before ordering a custom tailored suit in order to have the best possible look while wearing it. Suits are not something you can just ask your mom to buy for you. Think of them as a samurai sword. Each one is uniquely crafted for the user in order to provide maximum efficiency.
