ELLEMEN Digital has done a serious study: compared to Europeans and Americans, Asians have a long waist, short legs and no hips. In 2010, Tongji Medical College conducted a further study of Han nationality samples: only 4% of Han nationality belonged to narrow or ultra-narrow face type, and more than 50% belonged to ultra-wide face type.
The above research results directly indicate that we Asians not only have large faces, but also short legs, and fuzzy waist and hip lines. different, which is why many people say: Asians are not suitable for wearing costumes.
However, if we trace history of development of Chinese costumes, we can see that costumes were brought to China around 1840s, and after 1930s, costume processing technology is very popular. high reputation in world.
So Asians don't really suit suits?
No, I just can't choose.
But before making a choice, only by understanding basic styles and differences of costumes, you can have a clearer direction of choice and save more time. The following versions of costumes are presented and recommended to public, hoping to provide you with some assistance in costume selection process.
There are European version, British version, American version and Japanese version of common costume styles on market.
European and English suits
The basic silhouette of a European-style suit is an inverted trapezoid or hourglass cut, which is reflected in a pronounced waist with a slight drop between shoulders and hips. Double-breasted shape, narrow waist and wide shoulders are main features of this version. The British version is a variant of European version except it is single breasted and collar is narrow and long, basic version is same as European version.
The Suitable Crowd: Men with a balanced upper and lower body, tall and lean, with a small head, well developed shoulders and hips.
American suit and Japanese suit
The American and Japanese versions of costumes are mostly H-shaped, while American version of costume is O-shaped. These two types of costumes are suitable for Asian figures. No broad shoulders, no obviously narrow waist, avoiding minefields. However, there are certain differences: American version of suit is loose and voluminous, suitable for everyday occasions. A distinctive feature of this version are loose trousers, emphasizing comfort and ease. The Japanese version of suit is mostly single-breasted, with no back slit.
The right audience: fitness enthusiasts, men with strong physiques and bright chests and hips.
In addition, with continuous improvement of suit cutting and production technology, designers from different countries have also developed more different styles of suits for different body types. Among them are representatives of Italian "inverted A" type and an improved version of "Y" type suit.
Italian costume "inverted letter A"
Italians tend to be shorter in stature, with a strong upper body and thinner lower body. Based on this, suit is designed with exaggerated shoulders, a relaxed chest, and a tapered hem that maximizes strengths and avoids weaknesses, creating an overall "inverted A" visual effect. This body shape is also similar to Asians and this type of suit is also a direction for Asians to choose.
Suitable group: men with strong pecs.
Redesigned from an inverted triangle, format is relatively new and is most appropriate version of costume for Asian figures. The chest is trimmed to shape silhouette, hem is tightened, and no-slit design is adopted in keeping with discreet characteristics of Asian crotch.
Perfect crowd: Asian males without a clear figure.
There are so many costume shapes to choose from and they have been perfected to create costumes suitable for Asian figures. Going back to question at beginning, are Asians really not fit to wear costumes? I believe that now everyone has their own answers in their hearts.
In order to choose right suit, in addition to deep understanding of it mentioned above, you must also have a clear idea of your figure and your preferences. At same time, you must develop your own taste in order to have a unique vision for choosing clothes. In addition, one should not blindly follow other people's aesthetic standards.
The most important thing is what suits you.
Even so, there will be confusion. The figure is different for everyone, and no matter how many styles there are, they are fixed and cannot fully suit themselves. I also lack dressing skills, so how do I choose a suit that suits me? Don't worry, importance of "custom suit" is being reflected at moment.
Bespoke suits are different from "ready-to-wear" suit making. This applies to suits tailored to individual body measurements, including fabrics and styles chosen by clients before they are made. Suits made in this way can perfectly fit figure, emphasize dignity and increase temperament.
