Suits Suits Suits: Mens Fashion

Although women's fashion gets a lot more attention, men need to look good too!  To most people, a suit is a suit is a suit, but men's fashion has changed a lot over the years.  I think every man needs a good suit in his life, but there is no need to run out and spend big money on a boring suit that doesn't express any personality.  Think vintage! (I always do...).  Lately vintage or vintage-look suits are appearing in movies, weddings, and even in new suits by modern designers.  I personally really like the three-piece suit look.  A vest provides a great option when you want to look tailored but you don't want to wear a jacket (think summer weddings and events). The character of Will Shuester on "Glee" is always wearing great partial suit outfits.

Jude Law sports a gorgeous three-piece suit in "Sherlock Holmes".  JCrew offers a similar charcoal suit that would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.

But there is really no need to spend so much money on a new suit.  Before investing in an expensive, new coat, try to find a vintage one.  Check out etsy, ebay, or your local thrift, vintage or consignment stores for great suits that can be altered to fit!

To be sure a jacket fits you properly, check first that the shoulder seams rest right above the edge of your actual shoulder. Next, button the jacket. If the fabric pulls when it is buttoned, the jacket is too small. Look for jackets with vertical seaming in the front and the back because this allows a tailor plenty of options for where a jacket can be taken in. A few alterations can extend the life of an otherwise dated and un-usable suit!

Don't forget that tailoring can make anyone look like a million bucks!


Don't forget that I can always provide fashion advice if you need help determining which suit styles are best for you!
