SUIT LINING

BESPOKE SUIT LINING: THE BASICS

A bespoke suit is something truly previous to a suit enthusiast.

It represents fine tailoring, high quality, and the perfect fit and style. If you have yet to own a bespoke suit of your very own, however, chances are you have never chosen the lining for your own suit. Even though you will probably be the only one seeing your own lining, you shouldn’t settle for any old suit liner and give up the chance to choose something special that you love.

My tailoring is about style and craftsmanship, at Park Lane tailors every garment is well made with a perfect fit and finish.

What purpose does the lining of a suit serve?

It represents fine tailoring, high quality, and the perfect fit and style. If you have yet to own a bespoke suit of your very own, however, chances are you have never chosen the lining for your own suit. Even though you will probably be the only one seeing your own lining, you shouldn’t settle for any old suit liner and give up the chance to choose something special that you love.

 

What is lining fabric made from?

A suit lining adds weight and structure to the jacket. It also makes your jacket warmer, so that you find it more comfortable to wear during the colder months. A well-lined jacket will sit smoothly upon the body, reducing any wrinkles. It is much easier to put on, too! A lining hides the inner construction of the jacket. Wearing an unlined jacket can pull at your shirt and ruin your look.

What is lining fabric made from?

Lining fabrics can be made from a variety of different materials. From the finest silk to the cheapest polyester, just about every fabric can be used for lining. That being said, try to opt out of silk for your suit because even though it is beautiful, it is very delicate and will make you feel quite warm.

How do I choose the perfect lining for my bespoke suit?

The first thing to decide before selecting your suit lining is whether you intend to order a two-piece or a three-piece suit. In the case of a two-piece suit, the lining fabric will only be used on the inside of your jacket, whereas on a three-piece suit, your lining will be on both the jacket and the waistcoat, which means it will be more visible. If you are the careful type, you might then want to choose a more conservative lining choice because you don’t want a bold lining on the back of the waistcoat in your three-piece. That being said, that should not be a problem because any good tailor will allow you to choose a more subtle lining for the back of the waistcoat in case you want to choose a bolder lining for the rest of the suit.

 

Here are three things you should remember when choosing a great fabric lining for your suit:

// Versatility

If you want your suit to be as versatile as possible, you can match the lining to your suit cloth. This will ensure that it does not clash with your shirts, ties, and other garments. You’ll be able to pair it with more clothes.

// Color Choice

Opting for a bolder color or a pattern is a great way to show off the bolder side of yourself.

// Personal Style Showcase

When choosing a lining, opt for something that not only compliments the suit but also matches your personality. After all, it will be giving a nod to your personal style!

You can either choose:
  • A complementary color, like a gold lining in a blue jacket
  • A similar color, like a purple lining in a navy jacket
  • A contrasting color, like a burgundy lining in a charcoal jacket

 

Try a Patterned Lining

Patterned linings require a fine balance between the cloth and the lining and work well when it is paired with a solid cloth or subtly textured cloth. If you are unsure about patterned lining, you can start with a classic tonal pattern such as a stripe or check. Paisley is also great, but you must ensure that the colors within the paisley match the outer cloth of the suit. Bolder checks can also look beautiful when paired with a simple cloth. Bold prints can look absolutely incredible, but the colors of the print must go well with the rest of the suit.
