Suits are some of the most classic, timeless, elegant things a man can wear. They’re what you put on when you want to impress, when you want to look your best, when you want to show you've made an effort.
The majority of men own more than one suit for exactly these reasons. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the majority of men have a suit that, well, suits them. And it certainly doesn’t mean that they have one that’s necessarily in fashion.
Nowadays, it's possible to buy suits on the high street relatively cheaply. Good news for your wallet but this can mean that less care is taken when purchasing a suit than previously. So the first point to make, though it may be an obvious one, is that you should always take the time to look at several different suits. As tempting as it may be, don’t just pick the first one that comfortably fits - try a few on and experiment with different styles and sizes.
If you have a sufficient budget then going to an established tailor can really make a big difference. The most important thing to consider when buying a suit is how well it’s attuned to your height and body shape. Even a style that’s at the pinnacle of fashion can attract attention for all the wrong reasons, if it has dangling arms or if the suit pinches too tightly at the shoulders. Going to a good tailor eliminates the risk of a ill-fitting suit, as well as making you feel like you’re getting star treatment.
Remember that while it’s a great idea to draw inspiration from the classic styles of suit sported by the likes of Daniel Craig's James Bond, beware of trying to match the Hollywood elite with an overly extravagant suit. For example, an all-white suit may not be the most appropriate addition to your wardrobe.
Use rewards cards to gain extra benefits while you’re shopping for your suit. American Express UK has some particularly interesting deals, offering benefits such as the chance to book the best seats at the cinema and theater and complimentary travel. So once you’ve bought your suit, you’ll have some suitably suave events to wear it to.
