blog-innerimg1A Quick Look at Men’s Suit Cuts

A suit can be worn on many occasions so it the most appropriate item to have in a man’s wardrobe. A man with a personal style and fashion sense will look million bucks in a good quality suit. A men’s suit is made up of jacket and a pair of trousers.

There are many different kinds of suits available from heavy winter suits to casual linen suits and business suits to super formal tuxedos.

Men’s suits also come if different cuts, these cuts will determine the look of your suits. These 3 major “cut of suits” have been named after the countries they originated in.


  • Italian Cut – a slim fitted single breast jacket featuring 2 buttons with no side vent typifies this cut.
  • English Cut – A long hourglass body with 2 or 3 buttons featuring side vents. The idea behind having 2 side vents to give the wearer extra room specially when they are riding horses.
    • American Cut – this is the more casual cut of the 3 cuts as it is a more roomy and relaxed fit usually featuring 3 buttons and single vent.

Deciding the cut of your suit will depend largely on your personal taste and style.

You can buy suits in 3 different ways –

Custom Tailored or Bespoke suits – Custom Tailored suits are made from scratch base don your measurements where master tailor creates a pattern from scratch and hand makes the suits for you.

Made To measure suits – These are pre made suits where some measurements are adjusted to meet your body measurements. For example the trouser or the sleeve length is altered. These suits can only be altered to a certain level, which means they will still not be as good as bespoke suits.

Off the Rack suits – Off the wrack suits are based on standard sizing measurements, which will mean that they will not conform to the sizing of the wearer.

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.

If you prefer quality tailoring or, like me, if you need it - I strongly recommend Bentex Suits.

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
