We all know how important it is for the suit to fit right. We have discussed some of the fitting issues on your jacket previously here and now it’s time to talk about some other equally important fit issues that you need to watch out for when you are buying your next suit.

Suit Collar – Your suit collar must follow the line of your shirt collar. If there is a gap between your shirt collar and jacket collar then the fit is not right. The gap between your shirt collar and jacket collar is also called as “Parole Gap”, so in other words make sure there is  no Parole Gap, suit collar be glued back to the shirt collar at all times.

Just a quick 4 pointers for your suit jacket fit would be –

  • Make sure there is no dreaded Cross when you button up your suit.
  • Shoulder of your jacket should not be bumpy, it should be same length as your shoulder blade.
  • Make sure jacket sleeve length is right, you should be able to see ½” off your sleeve cuff thru your jacket sleeve
  • There should be no “Parole Gap”, make sure collar of your jacket is stuck together with the shirt collar.

If you get the jacket fit right it is half battle won, trouser fit is not as complicated as jacket fit.

blog-innerimg1Trouser Waist – Make sure the waist of the trousers should be comfortable yet snug.  Trousers must stay on even if without a belt.

Trouser Length – The correct length for your trouser is when the trousers fall straight down the leg and hem falls right on top of your shoe laces. Make sure there are no creases or wrinkles. Wondering about the break? It is a personal choice, some men prefer full break and some prefer medium break. We always recommend medium break and ask our clients to avoid full break.

Hope with the above pointers you will be making an informed choice when you buy your next suit. A well fitted suit is designed to bring out a man’s best features and if the suit is ill fitted then it can do the opposite, so make sure you buy a suit that fits you well.

Now buying an off the rack suit that fits you perfectly can be an uphill task as they are based on standard measurements and more than likely you don’t fall in the standard category! Buying off the rack suit will not only cost you a lot of your time in hunting for the suit that fits you right but also same amount of money as custom tailored well fitted suits from Bentex Suits.

Buying a good quality off the rack suit and getting it altered to your measurements can mean you are spending more. So save all the hassle and look at getting yourself a custom tailored suit. Our custom tailored business suits come with a perfect fit guarantee.

Bentex Suits did a fantastic job designing & tailoring an amazing suit for my wedding day. I was so happy with the outcome and felt really good on the day. I wanted to go for a vintage look & feel and they totally nailed the brief! I had so many comments from just about everyone saying how dapper I looked and after receiving our photos from the day, I’ve really been able to see how nice the suit looked! I'd recommend Roshni & the team to anyone looking to get a suit tailored.

I would highly recommend Bentex Suits to anyone looking for quality tailored clothing. I have struggled for years to find suits and shirts that fit me properly (given my tall & slim build) - not anymore! Ajay and Roshni are both very knowledgable, the variety of available fabrics is vast and no request is too challenging. I have 2 suits/12 shirts and will certainly be returning again. Well done Bentex!

This was our first stop for a Bridal Party 6 suits in total!We booked in and were given all the knowledge of a suit and it's materials... The options are endless! But we were professionally steered in the right direction after sitting down with Bentex we were armed with all the knowledge! We shopped around after seeing Bentex but were not treated as well or given the same options with the suit designs and always limited fabrics! All in all we wasted our time going back to other shops and came straight back to Bentex the final fitting was a breeze and the wedding was fabulous!Thank you so much Bentex!

Roshni & Ajay were absolutely fantastic in all ways possible. They assisted with the selection of the suit including the syle and colour. They ensured that the trials and delivery was on time and above all the suits looked absolutely amazing! Would never go anywhere to stich suits anymore
