When you first enter society, how should you choose your first formal attire for work? For many people, first suit is often important. Compared to ready-to-wear, tailor-made suits are slowly gaining popularity with people, so what should you pay attention to when customizing your first suit? Let's look at SUITISM.
Choice of fabrics. For tailor-made suits, it is recommended to choose flat and pure woolen fabrics that are pleasant to touch, with good elasticity and high dimensional stability, and then approximately determine appropriate thickness of fabric according to season. For first suit, it is recommended to choose fabrics within 250-300g, which is equivalent to thickness of a spring and autumn coat, it can be worn at any time of year without any problems, and utilization rate is also highest. In hot summer, you can choose fabrics weighing 200–250 g, and in winter, 300–350 g.
Color selection. The three most common colors for men's suits - black, gray and blue - are versatile and timeless. Among them, blue suits are most widely used, which can be used for daily commuting, meeting friends, wedding banquets, etc. Compared with dull and boring black and gray, blue is more fashionable, so every man deserves to have a blue suit!
The choice of cut. If you are new to workplace, SUITISM recommends wearing a two-button, single-breasted suit. Everyone’s preferences are different, so it’s worth paying more attention to communicating with estimator so that he understands size better.
The choice of workmanship: whether suit is durable or not, long-lasting or not, depends on inner lining. The current lining technology includes full linen lining, half linen lining and adhesive backing. Full linen lining is most expensive, it has highest technical requirements, and fusible lining is cheapest, and half linen lining is in middle, this process is more often used in foreign high-end brand clothes. Fusible interlining and semi-linen interlining are both possible as first suit, and can be decided according to your own budget.
Many people think that to create an individual suit, you need to choose a large brand. In fact, many niche brands can compete with big brands. The quality of suit is much more important than the brand.
For newbies who have just entered job, SUITISM recommends that a few high-value, reputable brands are actually enough.
