Time to Suit-Up

The Right Suit has a way of charming a man’s persona or errr.. destructing it. From his school passing out ceremony to his daughter’s wedding day, a man adorns a suit to all his major life milestones. And yet, most men confess to buying their suits purely on their look/color and seldom on their functionality. If you are reading this blog, chances are pretty big that you are amongst one of ‘em. So, go ahead and indulge yourself in a TMS detailed guide, designed for a suit novice with a raging fire to know it all.

The Basics FTD (For the Day) – Contrary to popular perception suits don’t really need an occasion or so was made possible, by the “lounge suits”. Though rarely heard of Lounge suits are still eloquently penned on invitations — ceremonies, functions and social events like the races. To understand further, lounge suits are your modern two-piece suit, typically single-breast with streamline lapels in a neutral earthen colour– charcoal, brown and black. Business Meetings– Can you even imagine a businessman without a suit? With such significance, it is of utmost importance to pick the right suit. In most scenarios, a “business suit” could mean one thing for men: matched suits in sober colors and a crisp fit. While picking your deal-breaking outfit, look out for dark suits to indicate power and authority, while they can be further highlighted with a pinstripe. Romantic Date: If the occasion is romance, the dinner jacket is ideal and the options are almost endless. An age-old formula’, you can team up your black velvet dinner jacket with trousers made from an alternate fabric, jeans or striped pants. High Profile Evenings Think get-togethers, cocktail parties & think no further than a tuxedo to match the flamboyance of the event. What’s the difference between a tuxedo and a suit, you ask? It is the presence of satin. Typically tuxedos have satin facing on the lapels, buttons, pocket trim, and a satin side stripe down the leg of the trousers. Moreover, tuxedo shirts often have a pleated chest, called a bib or bosom. Special Note: Pocket squares, cummerbunds and bow ties should only be worn with a tuxedo and not the suit. While the above information will see you ready for most occasions, we thought of adding a dash of body-wise basics to help you pick the right fit for any suit. 1. For a man with an average height– For a smaller upper torso, a single button jacket/ suit will certainly look great on you! 2. For a Tall man – Always go for a two buttoned jacket as it helps to cover out the upper torso and make your entire physique look more proportionate.

We sincerely hope this feature helps.
