What Makes a Suit Suit You?

A suit is considered and viewed as a set of garments made from the same type of cloth. A set usually consists of at least a jacket and trousers. Typically, lounge suits are the most common of types but in the modern age, suits come in a varied types, cuts, and styles.

The modern suit styles were actually founded during the 18th century industrial revolution that focused more of elaborate embroidery and jewelled clothing. This was changed during the British Regency and into the Victorian era where comfort is focused more and thus gave birth to the modern lounge suits.

Suits nowadays are sold in roughly four different ways. First, the bespoke way which everything of a suit is tailor-made from the garment to the pattern to the choice of fabric. Second, the made-to-measure which a pre-made pattern is modified to fit the customer and only a limited number of selection of fabrics and options is available. Third, ready-to-wear which are sold ready to be tailored. This way is also considered the off-the-peg way. Fourth, suit separates which the jackets and trousers are sold separately, allowing customers to choose sizes best fit for them, This also limits the amount of alterations needed to be made.

Knowing a Suit is Knowing Yourself

The Cut

This part is basically how the suit is made and viewed. Typically, a suit can come in the double-breasted of single-breasted styles and a suit focuses on the strong tapered sides and minimal shoulder.

The Fabric

The most common fabric of a suit is wool and this is branched into two types; worsteds and woollens. The fabric of a suit vary from weight, softness, flexibility, and durability. The fabric may also come with patterns--most typically pinstripes.

The Jacket

Crucial parts of a suit jacket are the front buttons, lapel, pockets, sleeves, and vents. The front buttons come in two types (single breasted and double breasted), the lapel comes in three (notched, peaked, and shawl), and the pockets usually vary in accordance to the tailor and wearer. The sleeves of a suit jacket typically come in three or four buttons on each cuff and the vents of a suit jacket are the slits in the bottom rear, typically tailored to allow more freedom to movement.

The Waistcoat

A waistcoat or vest is worn as a part of a three-piece-suit. Wearing it had gone out of fashion in the 1970s but came into the spotlight once again in modern times.

The Trousers

The trousers are always made of the same material as the jacket. They vary in different styles and fitting; straight-legged, wide-legged, bottom-tapered. Nowadays, the evolution of a pair of trousers for suits consists of cuffs, pleats, and high-cuts.
