Buying A Suit Online

Buying A Suit Online

In today's fast-paced world, the convenience of online shopping has revolutionised how we shop for clothes, including suits. However, purchasing a suit online comes with its challenges, particularly regarding fit and style. But fear not! We've devised a practical guide to help you navigate the world of online suit shopping effortlessly. While buying a suit online may seem straightforward, finding one that fits well and looks sharp can be a tad more complex.

BUYING A SUIT ONLINE. Why opt for online suit shopping? Before we delve into our handy tips, let's consider why it's a fantastic option. First and foremost, it's all about choice. Online retailers offer a broader selection of styles, sizes, and price ranges compared to traditional high-street stores. More than that, the convenience of browsing and making purchases from the comfort of your own home can save you time and hassle.

FINDING THE RIGHT FIT. To ensure you nail the perfect fit when buying a suit online, the initial and most crucial step is determining your size. If you're new to suit shopping, it might seem daunting, but not to worry! We have some handy tips and tricks to guide you through. One of the simplest methods involves laying a blazer and a pair of trousers flat on a level surface and using a tape measure. To find your chest size, measure from one armpit across the chest to the other armpit. Repeat the process for your trousers by measuring across the waistband. Typically, the average body type will have a blazer size approximately 6 inches larger than their trouser waist size. For instance, if your trousers measure 32 inches around the waist, you'll likely have a 38-inch chest.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT STYLE.Now that you've sorted out your size, the next step is to consider styles, fabrics, and patterns. The occasion often dictates the type of suit you're after. Plain navy (Cavani Bond), grey (Cavani Reegan), or black (Paul Andrew Mayfair) suits are typically the go-to for formal workplace settings, while tweeds and lighter options like the Cavani Caridi or Paul Andrew Mark suit are popular choices for weddings. Double-breasted styles are gaining traction for more casual events. Regardless of the occasion, the key is to select a style that resonates with your personality and one in which you feel at ease.

QUALITY MATTERS. While it might seem tempting to prioritise price over quality when purchasing a suit online, it's crucial to keep in mind that quality should never be sacrificed. Opting for a high-quality suit crafted to the finest standards ensures that your investment will endure for years to come and remain timeless. If you're aiming for a more budget-friendly option, considering a two-piece suit is among the best cost-effective choices to minimize expenses, with double-breasted suits being particularly suitable for this purpose. Alternatively, investing in a quality blazer and pairing it with chino trousers instead of matching trousers is another option to explore.
