Change has been the consistent one and men's suit is no exception to this. Though suits are just an ensemble of a jacket with a button shirt paired with a suitable pair of slacks change has occured to it in a stealthy way which goes unnoticed unless gone under detail. It has been so subtle which cannot be seen by a casual fan. It has been in miniscule details like from the type of lapels to the width of the lapels and diversity in the pattern of stripes and of course the color shades.
Men's suit in general are optated for two purposes. One being widely used as work uniforms meant to provide the professionalism required and not to divert from anything that needs the attention. This is being reflected in colors by opting for more subtle colors like blues and greys with muted patterns. The usual style adopted are single breasted with less than 3 buttons on the front and for sure a neck tie. In contrast to this the suits designed for special occasions vary on the purpose of the same. For events like weddings and other serious parties it is imperative to wear a suit that would bring about a posh and a royal feel. Subtle colors but in bright shade can be picked. But on occasions like parties or fun events where you can let go of yourself a bit more experimental looks are preferred. Fashion has gone a long way in suits industry and varied looks can be achieved from the 3 piece clothing. Recently men's blazer has become a winning look with more and more celebrities rocking the look on the red carpets. If you are feeling bold you can try your hand at bolder colors and patterns. Those which can never be worn as a office look and probably be frowned upon may turn into a biggest hit if the right kind of crowd be present at the right kind of occasion. The zoot suit in your wardrobe may permanently reside there unless the right kind of party comes on. These party suits have garnished the interests of the younger crowd who are at the age which is at par with the fashion trends. The older generation opts for a rather conservative look with a tweak of fashion rubbing on the suits.
The thing about purchasing a suit is that it can range anywhere from a mere hundred dollars and can shoot up to many thousands. The quality of the suit is what matters and the longevity is a vital factor. Sometimes the manufacturer brand name that sells the suit rather than the material itself. You can easily get a decent quality suit for not much money but the increasing knowledge of the suits makes it identifiable as a non custom one. Most suits now worn by the people as the daily wear are purchased from a store on sales are called off the racks suits. They are easily affordable and are decent looking. They just need a little altering like adding or removing a few inches of the height until they perfectly fit the wearer. These suits are readymade and are sold at a wholesale rate. These suits have long been the saviour to all the middle class people who could go broke on a custom suit. For those who are little more liberal there is an option of tailored suit. They are not much different than off the rack suits but the look can be polished by having a tailor fit it to your body frame by adjusting some measurements. Mostly the attention should be given to the back and chest of the jacket. This gives more of an refined look and give much more worth to the money you spent on.
People who are affluent and doesn't see money as a issue while choosing a suit mostly go for the custom tailored suit. These suits are fully tailored from the scratch taking into account the customer needs. The fabric of the customer's choice is picked and the measurements are taken. The tailor gathers all the minute details the customer prefers and then starts to style the suit. Thus these suits are one hundred percent custom made for the specified owner. Usually these suits are made of finest wool fabrics which is preferred because of their ability to provide the perfect drape and texture to the suit. Wool fabric is the most breathable one compared with all other fabrics and this makes it comfortable to wear all around the year since its cool in summer and warm in winter. While wool has the highest demand they may be skipped by people who prefer a more slim fit. They go for other fabrics like cotton and linen which gives more slimmer look.Thus fabric plays a imperative role in the cost factor of the suit. There are many wholesale providers of fabric and the cost varies with the quality of the material. Also the manufacturer and distributor brand name carries more weight to the suit and major brands can have suits priced at a very high rates for a simple style. These are mostly worn by affluent businessmen and models on red carpets.
Though cost is a major factor, there is a wide range of style you can experiment on without straining your pockets if you just have a right understanding of fashion and a little guide on the topic.The trend of suits industry have been constantly varying from bright patterned jackets to classic vintage styles. Even casual styles like sweat suits are seeing light. We have been constantly seeing a rising trend of double breasted suits and three piece suits that were out of style for a long time brought back by the catwalk models and celebrities. Suits are being modelled to emphasize or if not by nature give the illusion of broad shoulders a narrow waist and slim legs. This has been a rising trend among the younger generation who prefer a fit that brings out the shape of the body it is donned up on. Gaining the knowledge of these trends may make choosing of a suit easier and beneficial in economic means. But if you are always into details and creative look there is a lot of means to express yourself. Taking into consideration small details like the number of buttons , patterns and the lapels it can make or break your look.
Men's suits and blazers typically come with less than three buttons. More than four is very rare and evidently hard to pull off. The height of the wearer directly influences the number of buttons he can pull off. The more number of buttons a suit has it is easier to appear taller. The single button look can be rocked when you have a lot of inches to spare. The two button look is a classic look and will never be out of fashion. It gives a taller and more elegant look. When you feel a little daring and want to try something new he can always go for the three button look. This has been the look of 1990's and is set to make a comeback again.
Side vents is another factor that influences the look greatly. A well tailored suit with two side vents will give you a impeccable silhouette. The fit from shoulders from waist is perfectly done which inturn is comfortable to wear.Lapels are the perfect example of a small detail giving great results. They have seen a constant change in trend with it changing along with the required look. The prevailing trend is of peaked lapels which brings back the flavor of 20s. They give the illusion of broadened shoulders and a narrow waist. If peaked lapels are not your taste then you can always come back to the classic notched lapels.
When it comes to fabric as discussed before cost is the governing factor but you can always opt for other options and consider the fabrics drawbacks and gains keeping aside the cost. Wool is most sought after but compromising on the quality of the blend it comes with can vary the cost. Cotton suits can give you the professional look at a cheaper price but has the drawback of wrinkling easily. The amount of care and maintenance you give to the suit contributes to the longevity the suit life. Storing it in dry places and regularly brushing may be the small tasks that gives greater results.
Patterns have been long been shunned for their daring look but has been seeing light with the increasing number of celebrities like Harry Styles rocking the style with a perfect blend of elegance and uniqueness. The classic styles have seen a rising comeback so if you feel conventional plain suits are cliche there is never a better time to strut about donning old favourites like pinstripe, rope stripe and herringbone.As much as the suits have a per say in the aura you radiate pairing it with a right kind of accessories is mandatory.
