Choosing a men’s suit for the groom
There are special requirements for a men’s suit, although they are somewhat more modest than for a bride’s dress, but it is also important here that on a solemn day the beauty of the groom does not let us down.
Let’s talk about jackets. There are four main styles of this type of clothing.
Classic English jacket. Its cut corresponds to the main lines of a figure, well sits at any movement. The shoulders are moderately underlined, the waist is defined precisely and narrowed, two cuts underscore the back (especially for men with a wide lower back). Single-breasted English jacket has a simple, discreet lapels. Buttoned on 2 buttons. His relative is a double-breasted jacket, fastened with 4 or 6 buttons.
American jacket “bag” cut. Looks like a classic jacket. It usually does not use shoulder pads. It is much shorter than European models. The figure in it is made obese. The cut lines look softer due to the moderately wided rounded lapels cut in steps. Behind there is always a cut in the middle. Such jackets like massive or full men, but in them it is difficult to look elegant and elegant.
Jacket European style. Single-breasted or double-breasted, has no cuts. A double-breasted jacket fastens with 2 or 6 buttons, which are seated fairly low and visually lengthen the upper part of the figure. This jacket has one non-standard feature. Its length is 5-7 cm below the buttocks, so it does not suit men below 185 cm. This jacket emphasizes the shoulders, it has wide lapels, requiring more expressive and in the pattern and width of the tie.
Jacket modified, European-cut, double-breasted, with 6 buttons. It is buttoned in the middle, and the bottom button remains unbuttoned, emphasizing the waist. Lapels are simpler than those of a European-cut jacket. In single-breasted version of the jacket in the back there is sometimes a cut. This silhouette is universal, it is recommended for men of low and medium height, but also tall men in it look just as good.
It is not hard to pick up a jacket, you just need to take into account the peculiarities of your figure.
For example, if the hips and shoulders of a man of the same width, then the figure resembles a tetrahedron. For tall men, in this case, it is better to choose a jacket of European cut, and a jacket of a modified European cut will suit a short or medium height. Pants – with pleats at the waist, fluffy or not. If the lower back is wide, choose pants with wide pleats.
Wide shoulders and narrow hips create the impression of an inverted triangle, so English or American cut, which emphasizes a natural silhouette, is best suited. Trousers are the same as in the first recommendation.
If a man has narrow shoulders, it is best to choose a jacket of a modified European cut that will visually expand the shoulders.
Men who have managed to get a belly, look more spectacular in jackets of English or modified European cut. You can hide the stomach with a double-breasted jacket or a three-piece suit vest.
Men with short legs should not wear trousers with cuffs; their jacket should only reach the bottom edge of the buttock and fasten above the waist.
With long arms and legs, it is better not to buy jackets fitting and fitted cut, it is better to give preference to European cut, which visually shorten the burden. It is also not recommended to wear tight pants; wide-leg cuffs are best.
At the wedding, you can buy a smart jacket – tuxedo. Just remember: most often men buy a practical suit so that it can be put on at any other holiday or celebration. If you regularly come to the relevant tuxedo establishments, buy it for health. If not, limit yourself to the ceremonial costume, which will be useful to you even after the wedding.
