SLIM FIT SUITS

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SLIM FIT SUITS

Slim fit suits have been on the rise in the last few years, and it’s not hard to see why.

Men nowadays are more concerned about their outfits and bodies than they were back in the ’50s and ’60s when the regular fit was at its peak. In this article, we’ll be discussing the major differences between the two types of fits and which one you should choose for your body type.

 

 

Slim Fit vs. Regular Fit

The term slim fit is quite broad, as there are a number of subcategories, but in general, the term is used to describe a suit with more aggressive tapering. Every element of a slim fit suit is more tight-fitted to the body than a regular fit, from the lapels and waist to the sleeves. If you’re new to the slim fit style, it may feel restricting at first, but once you’re used to the sensation, you won’t feel as bothered by it.

The slim fit suit will have a more snug fit than a regular suit, but you have to make sure that the suit fits well with your body. The more tightly-fitted nature of the suit style means that you can’t get away with anything that’s poorly fitted. For example, sagging shoulders are a big no-no for a slim fit suit, as it will stand out quite clearly from the rest of the outfit. The same principle applies to the pants as well, as the tapering on the pants may show the natural shape of your calves and thighs. Keep in mind that your pants shouldn’t be too tight that horizontal wrinkles form on top of your thighs.

 

 

 

What to Consider:

The Dress Code

Slim fit suits are considered to be less formal than the regular fit, and those with more traditional mindsets may perceive these types of suits to be inappropriate for a formal setting. Before you decide to put on your favorite slim fit suit, make sure that the attire fits with the dress code of the event you’re attending. Even at your workplace, you have to consider both the work culture and the acceptable dress code of the office. For example, if your supervisor is a purist, a slim fit suit may not fly, so keep that in mind before you buy such a suit for the office.

Body Type

The fit is by far the most important thing you have to consider when you’re wearing a slim fit suit. As mentioned, you don’t have enough wiggle room to get away with a poorly-fitted one. On the other hand, even if you’re a bit round, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t pull off the slim fit look. However, you will need to have a better understanding of how the fit works for your body type. First of all, you want to make sure that the suit jacket is slightly longer than usual and that the taper around the waist isn’t too aggressive. The overall line from your shoulder down to your waist may not be as slim as someone with a more petite frame, but the tapering effect can still make you look slimmer.

 

 

Have it Tailor-Made

Because the fit is so important for a slim fit suit, you want to make sure that it’s tailored specifically for your body type and style. Slim fit suits are best for gentlemen with a lean and tall frame, as the streamlined look will help to emphasize the line and form of their body. But as we’ve already mentioned, with the proper understanding of the cut and fit, men with just about any body type can pull off the slim fit look. If you’re looking for a slim fit suit that will fit your look, body type, and personal taste, you will need to work with an experienced tailor. They can help you to choose the right type of fabrics and cut that will help to bring out the best qualities and hide your physical flaws. These are the effects that you can't get with any off-the-rack slim fit suit.
