A lot of men run into the problem of not having their suit fit perfectly. It may be too small in one area, slightly large in another, or the sleeves are either too long or short. A man’s suit should fit them perfectly on all parts of their body.
The back should be slightly loose in order to perform normal daily activities, such as tying your shoes. A great test to determine if the back of your suit is too tight is the hug test. If you hug someone and you feel as if your jacket is going to rip, it is definitely too tight! The length of the back should cover your butt, but no further.
The best advice that I can give is to consult with a tailor before making a big purchase on a suit. Not only will you look better in a suit that fits perfectly, you will save a lot of time and money on alterations! As always, we are glad to help you at Artful Tailoring.
