7 Deadly Sins Of Suiting

Pleated Trousers –
It’s a complete NO NO for trousers, because they will make you look 20 pounds heavier and make you look like you are ready to time travel.

They could be acceptable only if you are a senior gentleman by which we mean over 70 or if you are a big bloke and prefer that extra room in your trousers. If you don’t make it into either of the categories then pleated trousers are completely unacceptable.

3 Button Suit –
The usual norm for jackets is 2 buttons. It’s the safest option and works on most body types. 1 Button is popular with tuxedos or Italian Blazers. And 3 button jacket is one of the deadliest sins and can be almost fatal if you are a short guy. 3 button jacket is only acceptable for taller blokes, who are over 6 foot 4 inches.



No Back Vent –
Most suits these days either feature a single vent or a double vent. Single vent is a slit at centre of the suit jacket and works well on most body types.

Double vent as the name suggests has 2 slits at the back, is most comfortable option but if you are a bloke with big rear end, we would advise you to avoid 2 back vents.

No vents are only seen on tuxedos or formal jackets but are not common these days as they can be quiet uncomfortable special while sitting.

Long Suit Jackets –
This is another one of the deadliest sins of suiting. A long jacket makes you look shorter than you are. Make sure you get jacket length right.

Shawl Lapel on Business Suit –
A big thumbs down! Shawl lapels are reserved for formal suits such as tuxedos and dinner jackets or even on your wedding suit. A business suit with Shawl lapel can look a little out of place if you ask us.


Low Crotch –
Young boys may love their low riding jeans but your suit pants can’t be done the same way. Suit pants must be worn on right on your waist and the crotch should be the right length as well.

Accessorizing your Suit – Less is more –
Keep it simple, keep it classic. It’s good to accessorize your suit but you need to know how and where to do it. So before you start accessorizing your suit with tie pins and pocket squares. Our suggestion would be to get the basics right first. This means getting a perfectly fitted tailor made suit and shirt.

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

I have bought 3 suits from Bentex Suits and they did a fantastic job making sure the suits fit me as I expected, the quality of the fabric is excellent. They also work fast as one of the suits was required by me quite fast, they did meassure and made modifications in less than a week. Very professional place tu buy from and excellent service.
