What is the perfect suit? What are the brands, color, fabric, and style the we need to craft what we believe to be the perfect suit? Sometimes we see suits either in person, movies, television, or photographs that gets our creative minds flowing making us think what is the best way to find the perfect suit? What is the path we need to take to steal the show like Ric Flair, Barney Stinson, or James Bond did with the suits they wore while winning over the world. Here are to consider when looking for the perfect suit.
1. Color coordination
This is the obvious one here, in order to have a suit that sticks out to people (in a positive way) is to have a color coordination that matches and makes your suit stick out more than the rest. The best advice I could give someone looking for a suit with a unique color instead of the cliché black and white is to maybe look photos online or to even talk to a tailor at a men’s warehouse.
2. Know your brands
Now we all know of those brands that sell things like shirts, pants, accessories, or shoes for large amounts of money that make people question who would price things so high. Suits however aren’t exactly cheap but its one of the attires we will acquire in life that is essentially worth every penny. Simply go to a store or a suit store and don’t even ask about brands just go look at the selections and prices to try to see what the difference is. The comparison some of the suits have with the giant difference in prices may surprise you.
3. Find a good dry cleaner
Something that is probably the biggest long-term pain about suits is that you can’t just throw them in a washing machine and clean them. Sure you could, but the risk of perhaps ruining a part of your suit isn’t worth the risk. While dry cleaning can be expensive think of it like putting gas, when we buy a car we have to invest more money into it to further its use. It’s the same thing with suits we have to invest some currency to further its use for us long-term.
4. Be yourself
Finding a suit, washing the suit, and wearing the suit can essentially define who we are when we walk into a room and people see the kind of suit we are wearing we are essentially telling a story. Look at sports journalist Craig Sager, for his entire career he has worn very colorful and some might say out of the ordinary suits that even athletes during interviews will cut him off and question why he is wearing the suits he does. Although Sager is loved all over the world, the suits don’t just define his career but it defines who he is as a person. His suits defined that he was a colorful and adventurous human being that didn’t care what others thought of him. So my advice to you would to be when you buy a suit whether it’s the cliché black and white or a very colorful combo that sticks out like a sore thumb if you get noticed by everyone in the room then your suit is doing what its job, stealing the show like suits did for Ric Flair, Barney Stinson, and James Bond.
