3 Key Factors to Consider for Your Men's Suit - Our Guide

“Does the man make the suit, or does the suit make the man?” You may have heard of this question repeatedly when it comes to men's wear, and you may have thought about finding the answer for yourself. The truth is that there's more to a suit than you might expect.

When it comes to getting and wearing one, most men think of how it serves its purpose of covering their bodies. However, they fail to realize that the suit can also make them look classy and elegant, create their personality and character, and boost their confidence. This is why getting the right suit is crucial, especially if you're going to attend a formal event.

In this article, we will share three key factors to consider when looking for the perfect men's suit:

1. Color psychology

A suit represents power, class, and sophistication. For this reason, it doesn't necessarily have to be your most flashy piece of clothing. Most men are convinced that their go-to suit should be black. This means many shopping for their very first set will limit themselves to black fabrics only. However, this can be a fatal mistake. Blue, brown, and grey are other relatively neutral colors that will help you exude a sense of boldness and professionalism without being too over the top. That being said, the sky is your limit! 

If you want to stand out, opt for elegant shades of green, purple, yellow, or even orange. You’d be surprised at how well an outfit can be pulled together with the most unexpected colors! Ultimately, the suit colour exudes meaning and evokes emotions; you just have to call the shots and see which option will best suit who you are.

2. Fabric cuts

Did you know that something as simple as fabric-cuts have the power to convey a certain message that can influence the way people perceive you? There are two aspects they can reflect on you—your social status and intelligence level. For this reason, choosing the right cut for your body shape can make all the difference. 

When it comes to these, you have the option to choose skinny, slim, modern, or classy cuts. You also have the option for Italian, American, or British cuts. Of course, you have to factor in the type of occasion and the event theme so that your tailor can come up with the perfect cut to make you stand out.

3. Quality of clothes

Remember that the quality of our clothes says so much about your image and reputation. Whether you buy a high-end, branded suit or work with a highly reputable tailor or designer, the suit of your choice will make a world of difference in how you portray yourself. 

So, while you're at it, why not invest in quality ones? If you're going to attend a formal event or play a pivotal role on a special occasion, you want to ensure that you bring your best look. As your suit will make or mar your appearance, be sure to go for a quality one instead!


At this point, you now know the three factors to consider when looking for the best suit—colour psychology, fabric cuts, and quality of clothes.

When it comes to this, you have the option to purchase a ready-made one from a retail store or have a custom suit from a highly reliable tailor. Of course, the latter can be your best bet. As long as you'll communicate what you want to achieve, your tailor will work wonders on your suit to enhance your overall look!
