SUITED & BOOTED.

HEY FELLAS JUST HOOKING YOU UP WITH SOME ELEVATED STYLE KNOWLEDGE!  DON'T WORRY I WILL STILL TOTALLY KEEP YOU UPDATES ON HOT NEW SNEAKERS AND FITTEDS. HOWEVER, I DON'T WANT YALL ROLLIN' TO A HIGH CLASS ESTABLISHMENT WITHOUT THE PROPER TOOLS!!!  CHECK MY SUIT STYLE GUIDE AND SOME SNIPPETS FROM A SUIT BUYING GUIDE I GOT FROM MEN'S STYLE.

1. EXECUTIVE 2 BUTTON SUIT



1. BEWARE OF THE SALES GUY:  UTILIZE HIS VAST SUIT KNOWLEDGE, BUT DON'T THE MAN DRES YOU!! RETAIN YOUR STYLE AND ROLL WIT THE STYLE YOU FEEL THE BEST IN.

2. KNOW WHY YOU'RE BUYING A SUIT (special occassion, work etc.)  AND PLEASE KNOW YOUR SIZE:  
SHOULDER FIT=====> THE SUIT'S SHOULDERS SHOULD HUG YOUR OWN. IF YOU STAND SIDEWAYS AGAINST A WALL AND THE SHOULDER PAD TOUCHES THE WALL BEFORE YOUR ARM DOES, THE SUIT IS TOO BIG.

CHEST FIT=====> YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY BUTTON THE JACKET WITHOUT STRAINING. HOWEVER, THERE SHOULDNT BE TOO MUCH SPACE BETWEEN YOUR JACKET AND YOUR CHEST, NO MORE THAN A FIST'S WORTH

PROPER LENGTH====> WHEN YOUR ARMS ARE STRAIGHT DOWN, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CUP YOUR FINGER UNDER THE SIDES OF YOUR JACKET. BUT, SHORTER SUITS ON ARE ONT HE TREND RISE SO THIS RULE IS A LITLE LENIENT...

IF YOU WANT TO CHECK OUT A MORE INFORMATION ON THE MORE INTRICATE COMPONENTS OF THE SUIT (lapel, venting etc.) CHECK OUT THE GQ MEN COMPLETE SUIT GUIDE. AND BOYS, DONT EVER SAY THAT YOUR CLATA WOMEN DONT LOOK OUT FOR YOU!!!
