Every gentleman’s wardrobe relies on the backbone of his choice of suiting. Varying tastes, different occasions, different seasons – each will dictate what type of suits you select. One thing they will undoubtedly have in common is the fit. This guide is your key to getting it right.
Slim Fit is fitted closer to the body, without any excess fabric. Not too tight to be snug or restricting in any way, it is merely trim. Many different body types can benefit from this fit.
Modern Fit is a great choice for men who want something a little more fashion-forward than a Regular Fit. But in comparison to a Slim Fit would feel more comfortable with a little extra room.
Regular Fit is relaxed and easy to wear. It's cut generously through the chest and waist, but still maintains a clean silhouette.
Suit Measuring Guide
This guide explains how we take our measurements, so you can get yours.
1 Sleeve length
Measure from the centre back of your neck to the top of the shoulder, and down to your desired length. Ideally there should be some shirt cuff visible - about 1 to 2cm of the shirt cuff visible below the sleeve, so bear this in mind.
2 Jacket Length
Measure from the back of your neck where your shirt collar would normally sit, down to the hemline. You can choose a short, medium or long jacket length, but the length may vary depending on the suit's style.
3 Trouser Length
With appropriate shoes on, measure from the top of your desired trouser length. Always round the measurement up to the nearest inch/cm.
4 Shoulder Width
This is the distance between your shoulder seams, measured straight across the back with the tape measure laid flat. Make sure you measure from the outremost part of your shoulders to get the most precise fit.
5 Jacket Width (chest)
Place the tape close under your arms making sure it's flay across your back and measure your chest at its fullest point.
