“A suit is only as good as it’s tailoring”
When buying a ‘ready to wear’ suit, you should first choose your preferred style & cut, and then look at how it fits. Most suits are made to fit the most people possible, which is why you should go for the one suiting you the best. Keeping the attention on the shoulders and make sure that the seam ends right at the outside of yours.
I recently purchased two suits and took them to my tailor, London Fitting Rooms, to make sure that they would have the perfect fit. If the suit doesn’t compliment your body shape or has too much fabric the right tailor can alter it to ensure it fits you precisely. When it comes to suit alterations I believe that it’s the small detail that makes all the difference.
An extra styling detail I like adding to my suit trousers is turn-ups (cuffs). Turn-ups have the benefit of weighing down the bottom of the trousers, which is especially useful at keeping lightweight trousers looking neat. Today’s lighter and narrower trousers truly benefit from the added weight of turn-ups.
By focusing on quality and paying close attention to every detail London Fitting Rooms ensured that the end result became a suit that was tailored for me.
