Menswear: Perfect Suits for your build

DapsonGent: Perfect suits for your build

Find the suit that is perfect for your build. A man who is blessed with a model’s measurement has an easy time buying a suit: practically everything suits. Those who are less prototypically endowed and fall short or long of the ideal- i.e. most men- face more of a challenge. If the jacket fits at the waist, the sleeves are frequently too long or too short, or too tight under the arms. Of course any good tailor can alter a jacket or trousers to your body, but often you just need to know a few tricks and tips to find the perfect fitting suit (See below highlights). Ideally, it will only look fantastic on you but also highlight your physical strengths- and disguise any shortcomings.

1. Shoulder pads end with your shoulders.
2. Your flat hand should slip easily into your suit under the lapels when the top (or middle) button is fastened. If you put a fist in, the suit should pull at the button.
3. The top button of a two-button suit — or the middle button of a three-button suit — should not fall below your navel.

4. With your arms at your sides, your knuckles should be even with the bottom of your jacket.
5. Jacket sleeves should fall where the base of your thumb meets your wrist.
6. Between a quarter and a half inch of shirt cuff should be visible.
7. One inch of break for your trouser or pants but I prefer no break.
