Prior considerations

You must be clear about what you want from your tailor and yourself before you begin. These are the questions you should ask yourself.

What, where, and how often will you wear your suit depends on its purpose.

Season: In which climate will you be wearing your suit?

What is your body type, and are you planning to stick with it?

Comfort: What degree of ease are you seeking? This will have a purpose.

Be aware of the responses to these queries. From this point forward… Read on since there’s still room for error.

Patterns and textiles

It’s crucial to choose the right fabric for your outfit. and intricate. Naturally, you want something with an excellent fit and a plush feel, but you also want something that is soft, breathable, and—above all—long-lasting and durable.

Wool Wool’s adaptability and sophisticated appearance make it a great material for suits. Wool breathes nicely because it is a natural material, which makes it suitable for wearing in both hot and cool weather. Most wool has to have its natural fibre spun, but worsted wool is an exception. Worsted wool is an extremely durable and silky fabric that is compact, making it ideal for daily suiting.


Wool is the ideal fabric for suits because of its numerous outstanding properties. It may be utilised from head to toe and is incredibly versatile. You have the option of creating fabrics that are light and smooth or thick, hairy, and coarse. It can be turned into very delicate and silky threads or thick, coarse yarns.


Even though it may not be very chilly outside ,the workplaces and shopping centres are really cold when the air conditioning is turned on since the heavier wools are excellent heat insulators! Your best option, however, is wool that has been purposefully made loose from extremely thin fibres to allow heat to escape. Wool is naturally breathable, so you’ll find that it works quite well in Australia.


Wool’s resiliency is one of the main reasons we like it. A well-maintained wool suit can easily last twenty or thirty years. When the time comes, you can even give it to your kid!

Water Resistance

Perhaps not so significant right now, but this is a slightly overlooked asset if, like many of us in the UAE, you hope to return home at some point.

Which wool should I pick?

In general, your suit will be finer and lighter but more costly and less durable the higher the twist (or weave) count. Furthermore, smaller twist counts are generally more affordable and long-lasting, making them ideal for regular use.

Cotton Made from natural fibres, cotton is the second most common fabric for suits. Although cotton suits breathe and move nicely, their propensity to crease readily might give the impression of shoddy tailoring. Though it is flexible, its greatest benefit is that it is easily adjustable to fit a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Polyester: Usually combined with wool to keep costs down, polyester is a lower-quality fabric comprised of synthetic components. Not only do polyester suits seem cheap, but they also don’t breathe, which can cause overheating and unwelcome sweat.


Because linen is much more porous than wool and is incredibly breathable, it is an excellent fabric choice for hot weather. However, it can easily appear crumpled and doesn’t lend itself to tailoring very well. For social and casual occasions, we recommend unstructured (except from the inner linings) tailored linen jackets, used in moderation to preserve their condition.


In terms of tailoring, cashmere is more upscale when used alone or in combination. Even while it is luxurious, it can make a suit look unflatteringly shiny. This could cause misunderstanding with polyester, which is highly discouraged due to its cheap appearance and synthetic fibres. Cashmere is definitely popular for leisure activities, but it could not be appropriate for work depending on your preference for something European-looking.


Patterns are the next topic. Probably the most difficult aspect. Anyone who has ever had a suit fitted knows that you can browse through swatch books for hours on end and yet not know what you want. Visualising what would look well on your particular body type as a small square of fabric turned into a garment is very challenging.

Trim & Coat

The British, American, and Italian cuts are the three primary ones to take into account. These are just the top tailoring trends that the majority of suit designers and tailors will adhere to; your nationality is irrelevant in this context. Keeping in mind the body type details and guidance we have provided, let’s examine each of these timeless tailoring samples.

Cut in British

The British suit cut emphasises durability and usefulness in addition to style and grace. It’s formal and beautiful, originally created for the British gentleman who was always on the go and wanted to be prepared for any weather. It has a cut that is more fitted to the body, typically with high arm holes and tightly fitting sleeves that culminate in cuffs. With two to three pleats, the trousers are cut higher than other suit patterns. Imagine Daniel Craig and David Beckham when you imagine this classic, legendary suit style. For guys who want a more conventional look, the British Cut is a certain winner because it can be tailored to fit most body shapes.

United States Cut

The innovative Brooks Brothers helped bring the American suit trend to prominence in the early 1800s. The American Cut, which was popular among wealthy Ivy Leaguers, stood out for having a single vent in the jacket, larger armholes, clean lines, flap pockets, and natural shoulders that lacked padding for a softer profile. The original American suit trousers were designed for people like Al Capone and were baggy. However, American suits have evolved over time and are now incredibly cosy and accommodating to a wide range of body types. The American Cut, which has a single-breasted jacket with two or three buttons and is typically made of lighter fabric than the British Cut’s heavier fabric, is perfect for warmer regions.

Italian cut

The Italians modified the British shape to suit more fashionable trends for slender bodies and warmer climates since they did not feel comfortable in the rigid and structured British cut. This shape, which is popular with Europeans, creates a striking inverted triangle by taking use of the lower waist of the average European. The Italian Cut is more extravagant than the refined British Cut and cosy American Cut; for most individuals, it may be too much, too soon, and should be gradually introduced.
