A Beginner’s Guide to Suits


Do you have an event that requires you to wear something formal? Or Do you simply aspire to upgrade your wardrobe but don’t know where to start? There is one answer: It’s time to Suit Up!

Welcome to the world of Bespoke and ready-to-wear. You might be familiar with the typical ready-to-wear collections, or off-the-rack.

On the other hand, a bespoke suit is custom-made for the client, made out of the exact measurement and perfect fit.

It will take a few days or weeks to get the bespoke suit made but after that, you either have the option to pick it up or have the suit delivered to your doorstep.

Here’s a comprehensive guide to the different types of suits for beginners


1. Slim Fit Suit
This type of suit has a style in which it is narrower across the shoulders and chest, waist, and legs. This suit is designed to give the illusion of being tall and slender and creates a more fitted look.

2. Classic Fit Suit
This type of suit is characterized by a looser, roomier, and more comfortable feel. It is cut slightly through the waist and midsection so the suit wearer can move freely and comfortably.

3. Single-Breasted Suit
This suit is a very simple type that describes a jacket, blazer, or sportcoat wherein the fabric meets accurately at the middle of the wearer’s body. There is no overlap of fabric and the only main visual difference you can encounter is the buttoning.

4. Double-Breasted Suit
This type of suit is very stylish. Its main difference from the single-breasted suit is that it has an excess fabric/flap that overlaps to the right side instead of it precisely meeting in the middle.

5. Single Vent Suit
A single-vent suit has a jacket vent that lays directly at the center back of the jacket. This suit style can be found on more casual blazers because of its simple aesthetic.

6. Double Vent
This suit style has twin openings that sit on each side of the jacket’s back hem. This is commonly associated with British tailoring lineage, giving a much more sophisticated feel to the one who is wearing it.

7. No Vent
This suit style features an unbroken silhouette that fits only in formal events. This type of style is only fitted for tuxedos.

Wearing a suit has the power of giving its wearer the confidence to take on anything. There’s a strong correlation between your attire and confidence levels. If you look great, you’ll feel great, and thus will give you the ability to take on what is ahead of you.

Now that you know all you need to know in order to jumpstart your journey in having your first suit, why don’t you take a look at Kingsmen’s collection for Bespoke and Ready-To-Wear and see if you can find the right fit for you?
