Buying suits is a major investment toward getting promoted, landing the job, closing the deal or even getting the girl! Appearances are important, and the more self-assured you are with the way you look, the more confident you are overall.
Your suit's fit is the most important element of nailing that confident look; it's all in the way it's cut to compliment your body shape. Indeed, fit is arguably the most important aspect in good quality men's suits. Fit affects the way your suit looks on you and makes you feel, and we all know the importance of dressing for success!
To put things bluntly, a suit must be the perfect fit for your body shape and height for you to wear it with confidence. Ask yourself: if a suit doesn't fit you perfectly, why would you fork over your hard-earned cash?
After all, a quality suit isn't exactly a cheap purchase, is it? Regardless of whether it's a business suit, wedding suit, or even a tuxedo, it's vital your suit fits you well. Period.
While it can be subjective, a suit that fits you well is one contoured to the shape of your body. It accommodates and flatters your unique figure; and as we all know; each person's body shape is vastly different. Your suit should fit you snugly yet have enough give for you to move comfortably when sitting or standing. This is especially true if you are buying a slim fit suit or a streamlined blazer or sports coat.
At a minimum, consider the following “fit factors” when shopping for your next suit:
These are the fundamental elements of good fit. There are many more factors influencing the way men's suits fit, and therefore, the way one makes you look and feel. If you can get the above elements right, you're on your way to cutting a confident silhouette.
