Guide To Mens Suit Jacket Style – Part 3

blog-innerimg1They say God is in detail. The power of well-dressed man lies in the quality of well-tailored suit. Finer details of your suit are what make you stand part from the rest.  With that being said the buttons of your jacket sleeves speak a lot about your suit and your attention to detail. Perhaps the most well known feature of a high quality suit and one of the hallmark details of custom suiting are “Working Cuffs”

Read on below to find out the difference between non-working buttons and working buttons, also know as surgeon cuff.

Non-Working Buttons – This is what you see on off the rack suits. These mass produced suits have non working buttons which are attached on sleeves just for decoration purpose to make the suit manufacturing both time and cost effective.

Working Buttons or Surgeon Cuffs – Working buttons as the name suggests have sleeve buttons that work and are functional. Jacket with working buttons on sleeves allow you to roll up your sleeves instead of having to take your jacket off. Working buttons are a sign of bespoke tailoring. They are typically found of bespoke suits, tailor made suits or high-end garments.

With Bentex Suits you not only get Working Buttons with all our tailor made suits but also have option of what kind of working buttons you want.

Non – Kissing Buttons – In this type the buttons, buttons are not touching each other.

Kissing Non Stacked Buttons – These buttons slightly touch each other but not overlapping each other.

Kissing Stacked Buttons – They are also known as waterfall buttons. These buttons slightly overlap each other. They are a signature detail of Italian suits. It is a sheer work of art to have buttons stacked in such a way that they perfectly overlap.

With Custom made suits it’s up to your style preference weather you prefer kissing of non-kissing buttons. Some gentlemen prefer the handmade look of stacked kissing buttons and other like the classic appeal of non-kissing buttons.

So when designing your business suit or wedding suit with us you need to remember a tailor made suit is about customizing the suit for you so don’t be afraid to have fun with suit design and show your personality once in a while.

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

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.
