3 Styles To Consider For Your Next Custom-Made Suit

Everyone's body is unique, so an off-the-rails suit often doesn't fit perfectly at all key measurement areas, such as the shoulders and waist. Having your suit custom-made ensures you look your best and feel comfortable regardless of the occasion. A well-made suit will feel natural against your skin and allow you to move freely. However, there are a number of styles to choose from, and deciding on the style of your next suit can be quite the challenge if you aren't fully aware of the main differences between each style. Here's an overview of three stylish suit types for you to consider.

Classic Fit

A classic fit suit won't be loose, but it does offer breathability and a mid-length jacket that stops just below the bottom. It looks smart and formal with regular fit trousers that don't crop in at the ankle. This style of suit offers great value, as it can be worn at the office or on a special occasion, such as a wedding. You can also pair the jacket with jeans or chinos for a more casual look that will still leave you looking smart and stylish.

Slim Fit

A slim-fit suit hugs the body in all the right places to create a streamlined look with no excess material. This form-fitting suit accentuates the shoulders and is narrower at the chest than a classic fit suit. However, there's enough room to move around in comfort and the suit will not appear to be tight. A slim-fit suit has a shorter jacket than a classic fit suit and a slimmer lapel. This style of suit is ideal for occasions that require a smart-casual suit and may not be viewed as traditional enough for formal workplace dress.   

Modern Fit

A modern fit suit is a combination of both a classic fit and a slim-fit suit. The jacket is more contoured and trimmed than a classic fit suit jacket and the shoulders are squared off, which allows the wearer to look smart and elegant. The trousers have a flat front and offer plenty of legroom from top to bottom. A modern fit suit can be worn for any occasion, so it's a great functional piece to have in your wardrobe. Dress it up or down with accessories, and if you're only going to pack one suit for a trip, a modern fit suit is a great choice.

If you're still undecided on the right style of suit for you, speak to your tailor. They can show you some options and advise on a suit style based on its intended use and your personal style preferences.
