The Perfect Suit
Choose the right suit. One that brings out the best in every man. Because, even when rigorously respecting tradition, the variants that come into play when putting together a suit comme il faut are in abundance.
Choosing the best suit for you is as easy as knowing your own style. Consider its fit (it should outline the shoulders and drape, not cling to, the body) as well as a series of elements to evaluate with careful attention depending on your shape.
Single-breasted jackets are particularly perfect for those of a slim figure, with understated revers, slightly fitted to accentuate a slender silhouette.
A bit more to you? Orient yourself towards three-button jackets and leave the top button undone, to add that slimming touch.
Side slits at the back of the jacket, typical of British tailoring, will make you more comfortable, without losing an inch of elegance.
Where pants are concerned, the most versatile style is often the most basic: darts, especially double darts, are best worn by the long-limbed. Cuffs deserve their own mention: as much as they are a pleasing detail that adds a casual touch to even the most classic of pants, they do tend to shorten the leg irremediably. So, those who are not of remarkable height would do well do avoid them completely, or at least, choose discreet turnups.
