It’s the most important suit you’ll ever wear, so make sure it’s flawless. The experts at Hadleigh’s tailor a guide for the perfect fit.
1. Shoulder is most important:
Natural shoulder gives you a proper and flattering fit. Too much padding gives the impression of the jacket wearing you.
A higher armhole is more flattering and a cleaner look. This also accentuates the natural curve of the chest.
3. Notch lapel:
A higher notch to the collarbone provides a more sartorial and tailored look.
4. Button Stance:
The positioning of the center button is critical to creating a well-balanced look. The right button stance can instantly lengthen your silhouette.
5. Shirt Cuff:
I suggest showing at least one inch of the shirt cuff.
6. Jacket length:
The jacket should cover the seat—no lower and no higher.
The waistband should fall exactly where the coat buttons meet.
Legs should be tapered.
9. Pant Break:
The narrower the pant bottom, the shorter the break. You don’t want your pant to overwhelm your shoe.
Choose a loafer with an elongated toe box. It’s a modern fit that is a perfect balance between dressy and casual.
