blog-innerimg1How to Design your First Business Suit

The biggest advantage getting your business suit tailor made is you can design your own suit. Buying a business suit off the rack would mean picking up a suit with “standard” width lapel, a “standard” fit with a standard plain boring lining. Wearing a “standard” off the rack suit business suit would mean getting unnoticed in the crowd.

With tailor made suits it is very easy to take your suit one level up to match your ambition. You can add a bit of flair to your suit by picking a patterned/colored lining or wearing a peak lapel suit instead of a regular notch lapel.

It can be hard sometimes to know what you want for when designing your business suit. Here are my personal suggestions –

blog-innerimg2Lapel – It may be a good idea to start off conservatively for your first custom tailored business suit, opt for Notch lapels. For you next suit you can go for peak lapels (as most business suit feature a notch lapel, wearing a peal lapel is a subtle yet noticeable difference.

Lapel Width – Off the rack suits come with a standard 3″ lapel. Why not go for a slim 2.5″ lapel for your tailor made suit. Slim lapels with your slim fitted suit can look very stylish.

blog-innerimg22 Button Or 3 Button – Most common options for a business suit would be 2 buttons or 3 buttons. Go for 2 buttons as it suits most men as it has a deeper neckline. Want to know more about number of buttons on suit then please read –—Finer-Details—Part-2

Vents – Vent is the opening/slit on the back side of your jacket. Like everything else number on vents on your suit boils down to your personal taste. If you are well built and like your suits fitted then go for 2 vents. But if your back is not the most attractive feature then go for single vent. To read more about vents, please read –—PART-2

    • Trousers – Trousers must always be plain fronted – no pleats! Pleats only look good on men with expanded girths.

Roshni and Ajay, were a joy to work with. They were very professional and incredibly friendly at the same time. They worked within some tight time constraints, and managed my Groomsmen being abroad until days before the wedding. The suits are fantastic and I cannot thank you guys enough!! Olly
