Buying your first suit can seem like a long and complicated process.
There are so many options. Do you want to go for a reliable, solid colour suit; a plaid suit to meet current fashion trends; or a classy pinstripe suit? There’s also the question of whether you want to get a single-breasted suit, or stand out with a double-breasted suit. Then you’ve got to consider the quality of the fabric, as this can affect the durability of your suit, and the impression it gives off. Do you want it with surgeon cuffs, a Milanese buttonhole? When do you plan on wearing the suit? If you hope to use the suit year-round and live somewhere that gets very warm in the summer, you might not want to use a thick material. Don’t fret though, as we’re here to help.
The key is to get a navy or black solid colour suit as your first. These are the essential suits that every man should have in his wardrobe. It’s useful nearly anywhere you can think of. If you’re only getting a few suits – your first few, it’s probably still best to stick to solid colour suits. Only once you have three of these should you explore plaid or pinstripe suits.
Going the bespoke route is recommended because you can design the suit to reflect your personality and fit with your needs. You get a suit designed for you. One that’s made to fit you. Importantly, it’s also great because your tailor is here to guide you and address any concerns you may have.
