Banana Republic says -

Every man needs at least one great suit. ....Starting with the perfect fit and ending, with the little details that make the difference.

While BR boasts to have everything what a man would need in his suits, we can get inspired by looking at these gentlemen for an inspiration to buy suits, wear them and rock them in every manner!

Types Of Suits

Modern Slim - A modern fit for modern men. It has the trimmest fitting at the shoulder, chest and waist with highest armholes. A more squared shoulder and narrow lapel give an updated look. Trousers are slim, fit through knee with a slightly tapered leg opening.
Tailored - A balance between slim and classic is a tailored suit. Shoulders lie flat at the seam and has exactly same measurements as "Modern Slim". Trousers are narrow through hip, knee and leg. Split back for easy custom tailoring.
