This is why most people opt to have their suit jackets, blazers or tuxedos specially tailored for them. But of course, if you want to go for the store bought option, make sure it fits like a glove.
• Design and Patterns: There are a couple of suit designs for men but the point is to go for something that will be classy and practical. The pattern is something that can make your look unique, when it comes to patterns on the suit you could get a pinstripe suit, black and white polka dot patterned suits or a more adventurous floral pattern jacket.
• Trends: When it comes to suits it is advisable to keep it classy because it doesn’t just give you a more matured look, you can also wear them to work and other formal events other than to church. But if you decide to go for a trendy design just make sure that you still retain the qualities of elegance and refinement that makes wearing worth it.
Remember also that you have to pick out the right type of shoe, watch, belt or suspenders, the right color of socks, pocket square, tie and even a hat that will compliment your look and not ruin it instead. Asides from money, also invest some time into your look because looking good isn’t just good business, it is also God’s business.
