Men’s Suits: What To Consider Before Buying



Men’s Suits: What To Consider Before Buying

A good quality men’s suit is not only fashionable, it can also be a good investment. Even if you don’t wear a suit regularly for work, just having a nice one on hand when the occasion arises gives you the peace of mind knowing that you can dress to impress whenever needed.

Whether you wear a suit regularly or just occasionally, there are some key things to consider when buying a good suit, and that’s what we’ll be taking a look at in this post.

What Colour Suit Should You Buy?

This is likely one of the very first considerations when suit hunting. Unless you’re a rapper or a celebrity, chances are you won’t want a suit in a bright colour, so the more conservative approach of choosing a suit in a neutral colour is more desirable and far more versatile for various occasions when you might wear a suit.

Navy blue is always a very safe choice and possibly the most common suit colour on the market today. You really can’t go wrong with navy, as it goes with just about every other colour and will look the part no matter what function or meeting you plan to attend. It’s even one of the most common choices for weddings.

Other colours you might think about include:

● Grey
 Charcoal
● Black
 Dark Brown

Of course, there are other colours you could choose, but along with navy, the short list above offers you the safest options.

You Need To Decide On Your Suit Budget

Men’s suits can range anywhere from a hundred dollars and well into the thousands, depending on the quality and the brand. If you want a good suit that’ll last you and serve you well for years, you’re far better off avoiding the lower end of the market and investing in something at least mid-range.

The suit you choose likely won’t fit you perfectly straight off the rack and some adjustments will need to be made. Fortunately many suit retailers include some minor adjustments in the price of the suit, only charging extra if the suit requires more major tailoring.

When thinking about your budget, the suit itself might not be the only thing you’ll need to spend money on to make the look complete.

Other things might be a:

● Shirt
● Tie
● Belt
 Boots/Shoes

Should You Shop Online Or In-Store?

It’s always a tricky question when it comes to any form of clothing, and having a suit fit correctly and be of quality is even more vital.

If you really want to buy online and you already have your eyes on a particular suit (maybe because the online price is cheaper), see if the same suit is available in a local store so you can at least see what it looks like in real life before placing your online order.

There’s nothing at all wrong with buying a suit online, but if you do, deal with a seller or website that has a reputation for quality products, good customer service and will allow a refund or exchange if the suit isn’t exactly what you thought it would be or the size is wrong.

Recommendations From People You Know

For many men, buying a suit will be their single most expensive purchase when it comes to clothing, so you want to be completely happy with the suit you end up with.
One way to ensure this is to take notice of suits you see people wearing. It could be a friend, a family member, a work colleague, or someone who works in a store or business you regularly frequent.

Like the suit he’s got on? Ask him some questions about it, such as the brand, where it was purchased and so on. At least you can see first hand what the suit looks like and check out the quality. It’ll help narrow down your options and final decision.

Buying a decent men’s suit doesn’t have to be difficult. If it’s your first suit and not required for a black tie affair, then navy is a great colour choice. Avoid the cheaper end of the market and aim for a mid-range price at the very least. Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll have a very smart looking suit that’ll serve you well for years to come.
