The Fit: A great foundation is necessary for us all to be able to do anything in life. The foundation of a great bespoke suit is an impeccable fit. The way to achieve this is by focusing on three main points. The shoulder, torso, fit at the waist and the overall length of you your suit. The line of your suit jacket must fit perfectly with your shoulder. The way your jacket fits at the torso is the most important aspect. A suit jacket that is too tight for you will end up forming the unpleasant ‘X’ shape in this region. Ideally, your jacket must fit you so closely that there should be no room for your fist to fit in between your suit jacket and shirt.

The Appearance: Everything matters, including the fine details. Your choice of colour, pattern, the colour of the buttons of your shirt, the fabric of the suit and so on. We recommend that you stick to classic styles. They have stood the test of time. This means they are certain to work for you. Black, Navy and grey should be your ideal choices as a first suit. If you are looking to stand out from the crowd, say at your prom, try and incorporate patterns into your choice of a dress shirt and maybe your silk necktie. Look to keep the suit jacket and trousers simple and solid coloured.
