Whether you’re choosing from wedding tuxedos Southern Wisconsin, or just from fine men’s suits to wear to the office, you must make sure that you get the fit of the jacket exactly right. After all, a great designer piece such as Hugo Boss is an investment. And you deserve to have it look exactly the way it was meant to. So how do you do that?

Start with the shoulders. When you put the jacket on it shouldn’t be tight in the shoulders, but it should be snug. If you find that someone can grab onto the shoulder and be holding a fistful of fabric, try wearing a size smaller. If the shoulders aren’t exactly loose, but you wouldn’t call the “snug” either, a simple trick is to have a tailor bring in the sides a bit. It’s amazing the contouring effect this has on a man’s suit, and it will bring more definition to the shoulder area.

Another area that can’t be ignored when looking at suit jackets is the sleeve. The sleeves of a shirt shouldn’t be too long, as you don’t want them bunching up under the jacket. But they should also be long enough to stick out the end of the sleeves of the jacket. And that means that your jacket shouldn’t come right up past the wrist. It also means that the sleeves of your jacket shouldn’t be too loose. A tailor can also bring these in for you a bit.

Knowing how to fit and wear a jacket properly is very important when pulling the look of your suit together. But it’s still just one piece.
