Questions Answered

I was at a wedding last week and a friend approached me and we chatted about a few things one of which was where to go buy a suit. This post will be dedicated to hopefully answering his questions. One of the important details when looking for a suit or any article of clothing is to consider the fit. This friend is "smaller" and so needs a slimmer suit. He will most likely need to have something tailored either the length of the sleeves of the blazer or the length of the pants. If thinking of going to a department store, here are some that should be considered, SYMS and Century21. When visiting both of these places patience is a must as there is a lot to look through to find what you are looking for. Also, I would recommend European brands. Their cuts are usually slimmer. I would not go with Hugo Boss(German) that tends to be boxier. I love Hugo Boss but in this case I think it would be safe to try another brand/label. Considering my friends personal style a good fit is Ben Sherman(British), there is a store in SoHo. Take note to the colors of the season, Navy and Dk. Grey are classic but there is usually a wider variety during the fall/winter season.

Also he referred to this cover:

I will break up the look a bit so you can steal that style, if you will. Considering the hair and the overall look there is a strong Rockabilly reference. The pattern of the shirt is Gingham. The tie clip is a great touch along with the pocket square. A pocket square or handkerchief maybe purchased at any dept. store I think even kmart might sell them. The point is for it to be white and well pressed. On shoots, I am asked to iron the whole pocket square and not fold it until its time to shoot and then carefully fold it so there is a straight and crisp edge. Now, the suit is by Dolce & Gabbana and it cost a pretty penny. What makes it extra special is the sheen on the navy fabric and labels like Ben Sherman would have samples of that for a lesser price. Hopefully I was able to shed some light on this subject. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to drop me a line.
