HOW TO GET THE RIGHT MEN’S SUIT FIT

Words: C. Stewart

What makes a good suit a great one? The right fit.

Slim, tailored and regular fit suits all have different defining features. Knowing which fit is best for you is the easiest way to look and feel your best in your suit. So, here it is: your need-to-know on our fits.

Why get the right fit?

Getting the right fit for a men’s suit can make all the difference – you’ll be amazed at just how good a suit that fits just right looks on your body, especially if you’ve previously worn suits that aren’t quite the right size or fit for you. First of all, getting measured is the step you should do straight away. If you can’t get into a store to get measured then you need to grab a tape measure and make sure you get an accurate idea of your measurements. This will help you when it comes to referring to our size guide.

Trends change, and your personal style is constantly evolving so check out our different suit fits and find your ideal style.

Slim fit suits

Slim is our narrowest fit, precisely cut for a pin-sharp silhouette. It’s snug through the shoulders, chest, arms and thighs. The jacket and waistcoat are fitted through the waist while trousers are neat through the seat and taper towards the ankle to skim the top of your shoe.

Slim fit brands include Moss London, DKNY and French Connection. If you’re buying a slim fit suit or jacket for the first time, you might find going up a size more comfortable.

Tailored fit suits

Our tailored fit offers a well-balanced fit that sticks to the core rules of tailoring. It’s cut to define your shoulders, chest, arms and thighs but leave enough room to move with ease. The jacket and waistcoat are tapered through the waist while the trousers are defined through the seat with a tapered leg that sits on top of your shoe.

Moss 1851, Ted Baker, Reda, BarberisHUGO by Hugo Boss, Lanificio F.Lli Cerruti Dal 1881 and selected Ermenegildo Zegna Cloth and Savoy Taylors Guild all come in a tailored fit.

Regular fit suits

Looking for more room and an easy fit? Our regular fit suits are cut in line with traditional British tailoring with a broader fit through the shoulders and straight arms and legs. The jacket and waistcoat are lightly shaped through the waist while trousers are fuller through the seat and thigh and hang smoothly to break on your shoe.
