Does Your Suit Fit Properly?

Despite what some men believe, a suit alone isn't enough to look your best. A suit needs to fit correctly on your body to deliver the full effect. For the classic slim-fit look, fit starts at the shoulders. With your suit jacket on, make sure it is not too tight or too wide on your shoulders. Moving down, check the button height and sleeve length. You don't want more than one quarter of an inch of shirt sleeve to show at the end of your jacket sleeve. To complete the tapered look, make sure your suit has a conservative break at the bottom of the trousers, which is to say that the trouser ends should barely hang over the shoes.
