Even in the modern world, most men need at least one good suit. Some, such as office workers or salesmen, need to wear a suit on a daily basis. Others will only need to wear a suit occasionally, perhaps for a job interview or for an important meeting with a customer, a financier or supplier. Even men who never need a suit for work will occasionally need one for a social occasion such as a wedding, romantic dinner or other event.
Why Buy a Quality Suit
The temptation to go out and buy a cheap suit should be resisted. This is because a cheap suit does not normally look good after a couple of hours of wear. Even a mid-priced suit will look shabby after being worn just a dozen times.
A suit made from good quality material with a proper lining will hang better. The lining will be strengthened in important places like the knees and elbows to ensure that the fabric does not stretch at these points. This ensures that the suit looks good even after being worn dozens of times. The seams will also be strengthened at various points to ensure it does not stretch and that the seams do not split. A good quality suit will last longer as well as make a good impression.
Tailored or Off the Peg?
There are some good quality off the peg suits available. However, because everyone’s body is slightly different finding one that fits properly is practically impossible. Occasionally you will be lucky and find what you are looking for, but normally you will be disappointed.
The other problem is that fashions change. One year there will be plenty of double-breasted suits with double button detail on the sleeve available. The next there will be only a few double-breasted suits to choose from, with no buttons on the sleeve.
Buying a tailored suit allows you to stamp your personality on the suit. It makes you stand out from the crowd. You can buy a suit that truly works for you and flatters you rather than making you look stocky or like your legs are too short. Buying a tailored suit is a worthwhile investment for any man, and, these days, you can buy one for the same price as a mid-priced off the peg suit.
