What to Look for in Fine Tailored Suits
- The No. 1 factor that determines a suit's fit is the jacket shoulders. The shoulders should fit comfortably and snug on the body frame while still allowing movement. Jackets that are too large in the shoulders can eventually sag, wrinkle and loose their shape.
Number of Buttons
- The number of jacket buttons plays a significant role in the overall style of a fine-tailored suit. Try on a variety of jackets to see if you prefer a two-button, three-button or double-breasted jacket.
- A tailored suit can be called "fine" when it is made from a high quality fabric. Check the tags on the interior of the suit jacket or pants and look for fabric blends of wool, silk or cashmere.
