When choosing a suit, style is important, comfort is key and fit paramount. If you want to look good in a suit, then it should actually fit you.
Never, never be surprised if an off-the-peg suit doesn’t fit you like a glove; very few men have the measurements of a male model and even fewer designers take this into account. But help is just an inside leg measurement away. When you are buying a suit, it really must fit around the shoulders and chest. All the rest can be altered.
The world is divided, into men with square shoulders and those with more rounded posture. The typical square necked bloke is an athletic type. He stands very straight, whereas tailoring traditionally allows for a little postural slump. Our straight-necked hero will have the problem of collar pull – where the collar is pulled backward, giving the wearer a look that he is being dragged backwards.
Adjusting a suit to fit your body is all part of the service at Henry Bucks, where expert alterations are made free of charge with any purchase, to a period of 30 days from the time of purchase, except for sale time.
