Seeing the quality:

The Label:

The first sign to look for regardless of where you buy your suit from is the fabric quality, and that will be shown on the label.  The only words you want to see are “100% Wool.” If you see a bunch of different types of fabric, then it can’t be good quality. When there are many different fabric pieces, there is a higher chance of them falling apart. If it is all wool, then you know it is good quality.

Look at the lining-

A fused lining that’s held together with glue is about as bad as going for a $99 polyester suit. The cheapest quality suits will have a fused lining. The highest quality suits will have a full canvas or at least a half canvas.

While suits can be expensive, it may be best to get the pricier one. If you buy the more expensive one you can take proper care of it and it can last YEARS.

Check out the stitching-

The ability for mass-manufacturers to replicate what used to be hallmarks of a custom suit has never been greater. With that said, you still want to examine the quality of the craftsmanship and look to see how the suit comes together.

You do not want a suit with jagged, loose, crooked stitching. If the stiching is messy and loose it was probably made quickly and it will not last very long. If you are in a tight spot and can’t afford a high quality suit, just make sure to be careful. Cheaper suits will not last going to the dry cleaners.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS:

 From the way the pockets come together, to the drape, the buttonholes, and the boutonniere loop. Each of these small details often have the biggest impact when it comes to how you look. Machine-sewn pockets aren’t as sturdy and will wear quickly when utilized. Stiff lapels without a slight roll are a hallmark of a cheap suit. Plastic buttons can break, and even horn buttons that use plastic anchors can fall off in the middle of your board meeting.

PAY ATTENTION TO HOW IT WAS COLORED:

The last thing you want is to leave the store with a great navy suit and have it look four shades of blue by next summer. Look at the design. How is it dyed? Is it even and are the colors vivid? Will they fade? Is the pattern perfectly done across the suit, or are they misaligned where the fabric was cut?

Bottom line: look closely and pay attention.

The Fit:

It’s all about the perfect fit. The fit of your suit is arguably the most important aspect of a good quality men’s suit. It’s also the aspect with the most impact on how your suit looks and feels on you. Ask yourself, if the suit doesn’t fit you perfectly, why buy it?

After all, it’s not a cheap purchase. Off-the-rack suits use a “standard sizing,” which is a sort of one-size-fits-all approach to suiting that uses only chest size and jacket length to determine your “ideal” fit.

What about other factors like:

  • Sleeve length
  • Sleeve and trouser circumferences
  • Crotch length

In addition to the above, what about your posture, and the shape of your shoulders? The list goes on. Your body is a unique shape and size so even if you think off-the-rack sizing is ok for you, there will always be one area of fit that’s not quite right.

Getting the perfect suit fit is a game of inches… well 1/4 inches actually! A good quality men’s suit is one that’s made to your exact body measurements. Period.

The Construction:

The Construction of your suit should be “Half Canvassed” or “Fully Canvassed” and not “Fused.” One of the key differences between premium and low quality suit jackets is their construction. The chest of any jacket should be constructed of three (3) layers of material:

  • The fabric on the outside of the coat
  • The lining that makes up its inside
  • A layer of canvassing in between that gives the coat its shape

HOW TO TELL A CANVASSED VS. FUSED JACKET – THE “PINCH TEST”

It’s easy to check whether the suit jacket you’re looking at is fused or canvassed. Simply pinch the chest fabric and lining between the fingers of each hand and pull them apart slightly. If it’s canvassed, you should be able to feel three distinct layers: the outside fabric, the canvas, and the lining. If it’s fused, you’ll only feel two layers. To distinguish between Full and Half Canvassing, perform the same pinch test down by the buttons.

Imported Wool Suit

Lapels:

Make sure to check the lapels before purchasing a new suit! The stitching should be even and equal all throughout. The stitches should also be nice and tight, if they aren’t then it may fall apart easily and fast.

 

Cuff Links:

The holes for the cuff links should be equally sized and not loose. You want to make sure the cuff link won’t fall out either.

Welcome to Suits Avenue’s blog! Today we are going to give you many tips on how to take care of your clothes! Suits are a big investment and don’t stereo-typically last a very long time.

Rotating your suits:

If you wear a suit regularly, or more than three times a week, you should own more than 1 suit. Owning more than one suit will allow you to rotate your suits. This gives your suit time to relax and go back to its natural form and allow the fibers time to breathe. During the day your suit takes in the smells it is around.

Use a round, wood hanger:

Using a round, wood hanger as pictured below, will also help your suit breathe and give it time to rest and get back to it’s natural form. Your suit takes in fibers through-out the day and smells, and this hanger will allow them to exit and go back to normal. This also helps you be able to go longer in between washes.

Use a regulated closet:

Having a regulated closet isn’t only good for your suits, it’s good for all of your clothes. It keeps the temperature the same making sure it doesn’t get too hot or col and ruin or stiffen your clothing. It will also help deture any insects or creepy crawlys.

Don’t overload your pockets:

Make sure you only keep the essentials in your pockets when wearing a suit. Your I.D., credit/debit card, cash, or anything else you may need! If you keep too much in your pockets, not only will it buldge and look goofy, but it will also cause wear and tear on your pocket, and quickly. Once the fabric is stretched there is no turning back. 

Use a clothing brush:

Using a clothing brush at the end of the day will help the fibers in your suit freshen back up and relax. Your suit takes in the smells of your evenings adventures, the clothing brush will open those fibers allowing it to open back up. 

Steam your suit:

Steaming your suit is a gentle way to clean your suit and remove the wrinkles. Don’t take your suit to the dry cleaners. They use harsh chemicals that will damage your suit, especially if you take it regularly. Steam is only heated water that will open the fibers and not cause any damage. Make sure to check your tags before doing anything and see whats safe to use.

Cleaning Tips:

  • Pre-Treat your stains before washing, steaming, or sending your suit to the dry cleaners. This will help ensure your stain doesn’t set and comes out. 
  • Put cedar blocks in your closet near your suits. This will help keep moths and other insects away so they don’t eat or damage your clothes.  This will also help prevent mold from growing if any moisture gets into the area.

Leather Shoe Cleaning:

Step 1: Remove the laces.
If they’re dirty, run them through the washing machine or replace them.

Step 2: Clean loose dirt and debris.
Use a soft cloth or a brush to remove any grime that may be stuck to the shoe’s leather surfaces.  

Step 3: Apply soap.
Mix a solution of warm water and dish soap, dip a soft cloth into it, wring it out and wipe the exterior surfaces of the shoe.

Step 4: Wipe off soap.
Use a second clean, damp cloth to wipe off the soap. Dry with a towel. Warm, soapy water will also remove water stains and scuffs.  

Step 5: Condition leather.
Apply leather conditioner to protect from stains and to add shine. You can buy a commercial leather conditioner or make your own by mixing 1 part vinegar to 2 parts linseed oil. Apply to leather, let sit for about 15 minutes and buff with a soft cloth till the leather shines.

Step 6: Dry
Let your shoes and boots dry in the open air. Don’t put them in the sun or by a heater, as this may cause the leather to fade or crack.

Help removing stains:

Grease or Oil 

Sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on the spot. Rub it in gently, with a damp cloth. Let sit for a few hours or overnight. The soda or starch will absorb the oil. Wipe off the powder with a soft cloth.  

Ink

Dip a cotton swab in nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol and lightly blot the stain. Don’t rub, or you could make the ink spread. Blot gently until the stain is gone. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth and dry with a towel.

Scuffs

You can use toothpaste to clean leather. Squirt a dab of the non-gel sort on the scuffed area. Rub with a soft cloth.

Cleaning your suede shoes:

You will need a shoe brush, shoe cleaner, rubber stone, and a rag.

1. Clean

Apply cleanser with a rag, covering the entire shoe evenly (don’t oversaturate). Avoid spot cleaning, as this may cause staining. Let dry completely before moving onto the next step.

2. Restore

Gently rub the rubber stone (moving in the same direction) all over the shoe to remove any remaining dirt. Use the suede brush to gently fluff up and restore the nap to your suede. Remember: suede is sensitive.

3. Protect

Protect your newly cleaned shoes from the elements by misting a light, even coat of protective spray all over the shoe.

Pro tip:
 Try to brush off any dirt on your shoes every day; that simple step makes a huge difference in the look of your suede.

 

How to fold a suit:

How to Pack a Suit
  1. Lay the suit face down on a flat surface.
  2. Fold the left shoulder back.
  3. Turn the right shoulder inside out, then tuck the left shoulder into the right.
  4. Fold the jacked in half lengthwise and then fold horizontally.
  5. Place the folded jacket in the center of the outstretched trousers.
  6. Fold the trouser bottoms over jacket and repeat with the top of the trousers.

Suits are a big investment, and with the right material and a little extra money, they can last as long as 20 years!!! If you follow these simple steps we are going to share with you today, you can add years, even DECADES onto your suit! For those of you who wear them often: You know how pricey they can get! As we tackle the different signs of a good quality suit, don’t forget the upkeep is just as important!

The Label:

The first sign to look for regardless of where you buy your suit from is the fabric quality, and that will be shown on the label.  The only words you want to see are “100% Wool.” If you see a bunch of different types of fabric, then it can’t be good quality. When there are many different fabric pieces, there is a higher chance of them falling apart. If it is all wool, then you know it is good quality.

A fused lining that’s held together with glue is about as bad as going for a $99 polyester suit. The cheapest quality suits will have a fused lining. The highest quality suits will have a full canvas or at least a half canvas.

While suits can be expensive, it may be best to get the pricier one. If you buy the more expensive one you can take proper care of it and it can last YEARS.

Will they fade? Is the pattern perfectly done across the suit, or are they misaligned where the fabric was cut?

It’s all about the perfect fit. The fit of your suit is arguably the most important aspect of a good quality men’s suit. It’s also the aspect with the most impact on how your suit looks and feels on you. Ask yourself, if the suit doesn’t fit you perfectly, why buy it?

It’s easy to check whether the suit jacket you’re looking at is fused or canvassed. Simply pinch the chest fabric and lining between the fingers of each hand and pull them apart slightly. If it’s canvassed, you should be able to feel three distinct layers: the outside fabric, the canvas, and the lining. If it’s fused, you’ll only feel two layers. To distinguish between Full and Half Canvassing, perform the same pinch test down by the buttons.

Lapels:

Make sure to check the lapels before purchasing a new suit! The stitching should be even and equal all throughout. The stitches should also be nice and tight, if they aren’t then it may fall apart easily and fast. The lapels are the piece of fabric that sends back in the ends of the jacket.

Cuff Links:

The holes for the cuff links should be equally sized and not loose. You want to make sure the cuff link won’t fall out either. The cufflinks aren’t only for fashion, they are meant to keep the sleeves tight and smooth with your arms.

Conclusion:

Today we explained when you’re buying a new suit, you need to look at the lapel, lining, stitching, details, coloring, fit, construction and a nice little pinch test to see if it quality!

Above is a guide to spotting a quality suit but it also important to mention how to care for and maintain the quality of these suits. Only then can one suit last you as long as you need it to, and only then will a collection of well kept suits be one of your greatest assets in the workplace.

General Tips:

  • Black colors are always smarter than anything multicolored.
  • Generally, darker tones are smarter than lighter. They’re more versatile too.
  • Smartness is dictated by decoration as well as shade: black Derbies are smarter than tan, but chocolate Oxfords can be more refined than both.
  • Trainers and smart shoes obey different rules: white Oxfords are slightly weird, but white trainers will work with anything in your wardrobe.
  • It doesn’t matter what color your shoes are if they’re scuffed. Find a polish that matches, or a neutral polish if you’ve gone for something wilder, and keep them in good nick. They’ll last longer, too.
  • If you’re wearing something bright on your feet, then anchor them with neutrals elsewhere. Bold shoes are easier to pull off if you’re not also wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

Black Shoes:

Black is such a great choice for shoes because it matches with everything! 

The only main road block with black shoes are if you are wearing a bright outfit, you wouldn’t want to wear black shoes.

Black shoes are great for not only business occasions, but also weddings, funerals, dances, and any other formal occasion! 

Black shoes are also great for every day wear! They can make you look classy, professional, and smart!

Brown Shoes:

Brown shoes are another great classic! They also go with almost anything!

If you are wearing an outfit made out of a solid color, such as all white or all black, you wouldn’t want to wear brown shoes! If you have white shorts and any colored shirt, you can wear brown shoes!

They go great for formal occasions such as weddings, funerals, dances, or every day wear!

Sandles:

Sandles are great for every day wear! They aren’t something you would wear to work or a special/formal occasion though. They are great for beaches, safaris, walks in the park, and even the mall! They are perfect for letting your air breath during the day!

These are great for business and business casual events! They are also great for weddings, funerals, or even regular parties. These can also been worn every day if you would like! They can even be worn as an every day shoe as well depending on your style! Come find a pair that fits your perfectly!

Boating shoes:

These shoes are good for regular every day events or even business casual events! They are not something you would want to wear to a regular business event though. They come in many colors other than black! They are very stylish and fit in perfectly at many offices!

🤵🏿IT’S WEDDING SEASON🤵🏿

Introduction:

Hi! Welcome to Suits Avenue’s Blog! Today we are going to go over the in’s and out’s of being a best man at a wedding! It’s one of the greatest honors in life to be asked to be a friend or relative’s best man at their wedding. It’s a role that comes with some key responsibilities as well, so it’s not something to be taken lightly. When you accept the offer, you’ll be feeling proud and pleased, but this can soon give way to anxiety and stress if you don’t get your tasks sorted out as efficiently and promptly as possible. Therefore, you should have a plan of what you need to do and when each task needs to be completed to keep you on track and up to the mark. In this blog hopefully we will help you get on the right track to help the bride and groom enjoy one of the best moments of their lives! Check out the table of contents below to see everything we cover!

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

  1. All Clothes
  2. Don’t forget Accessories
  3. Caring and Storing the clothes
  4. Best Man responsibilities
  5. Bachelor Party
  6. Conclusion

Clothes:

The best man is normally in charge of organizing suit fittings and hiring apparel that isn’t going to be bought. What the wedding party wears will be crucial to the success of the event, so you need to be clear about what the groom wants to wear and how his groomsmen should be dressed.

Organizing a trip to a tailor for selection and fitting of your outfits should be done well in advance to avoid running out of time if there are any delays. Often grooms (or their future wives!) have clear ideas about the type of suit they should wear for the big day, but it’s still a good idea to be thorough in your research and look at all the alternatives.

You’ll also need to manage the distribution of buttonholes and flowers for the wedding party, and liaise with the chief bridesmaid or matron of honor to ensure everyone’s outfits are the way they should be.

In addition, you should arrange collection and distribution of the suits when they are ready, and the return of the clothing after the wedding.

Basics:

You will need a matching shirt, pants, jacket and belt to start your suits out right. You can click here to read about making sure they match! 

Accessories:

VEST:

The vest is optional, but if the wedding is more traditional, they will probably request all of the groomsmen wearing them. The vest can be one of the more bold accent colors. It will really stand out if you have a light shirt and dark vest or dark shirt and light vest.

Belt:

This is where the decision to get your suit custom made or tailored comes in. If you have made-to-measure trousers there is no need for a belt as the pants will be suited to fit you perfectly, at that point a belt would detract from your perfectly polished image you are projecting on the wedding day.

CUFF LINKS:

These are necessary not only to make a fashion statement but also to help keep your jacket sleeves nice and tight against your wrist. 

TIE AND POCKET SQUARE:

Your tie and pocket square don’t necessarily need to match, but for a wedding… it is usually best. They can match the vest if you are wearing one, or they can be the accent in your outfit!

Blazers

Now that we have gone over the basic needs for your outfit, we are going to share some caring and storing tips for your precious outfit! Following these tips are going to help your outfit stay in its best shape for the big day!

Caring for & Storing your suits:

  1. Rotate your suits!

If you wear the same suit every day, all day long it will never give the fibers time to relax or air out. It will always stay loose and never have the great “first fit” like it did when you first bought it. By rotating through your suits and giving each of them a few days to rest in the closet will make sure your suit is nice and crisp for your next formal adventure!

2. Wood hangers:

Using round, wood hangers will give the suit enough space for air to flow through and getting the smells of your every day out. It also helps keep the suit fitting nice and tight. The rounded edges mock the shoulder make so it won’t stretch the suit out, only create enough space for it to relax in the natural form.

3. Keep very little in your pockets.

Do not overfill any of your pockets, inside or outside of the suit. Only carry your essentials, cash, business cards, or debit/credit cards. If you overload your pockets it will eventually change the shape of the suit and it will become more lose and unnatural.

4. Brush your suit with a clothing brush:

This will extend the natural fibers in the suit, allowing it to last longer. It also helps keep the fibers up allowing it to breathe more and not hold in strong odors from the day. Be careful not to over brush your suit though, this will cause the fibers to become too loose and eventually fall apart quicker.

5. Roll your suit:

Do this after brushing your suit. Rolling your suit will grab any loose fabric pieces or hair stuck on it. It is a little extra step that takes your look a long way!

6. Steam your suit regularly:

Steaming your suit opens up the fibers, removes stains and marks, as well as the smells from throughout the day. Dry ironing your suit will push the fibers down trapping all stains and stenches, so try to avoid ironing your suits!

7. Avoid the dry cleaners:

Dry cleaners shorten the lifespan of suits. They use strong chemicals to treat the suits so they are clean. It is only necessary to take your suit to the dry cleaners if you absolutely cannot get the stain or smell out of your suit by brushing it, airing it, or steaming it.

8. Cover it up:

When you aren’t wearing the suit, it should be on the wood hanger as discussed earlier, as well as in an appropriate suit bag. This will keep any bugs or dust from getting into the bag or onto your suit. It also protects it from any unfortunate events that may happen, and makes it easier to travel with.

How to: to travel-

Step one:

Lay the suit face down on a flat surface with the front up.

STEP 2

Flip the jacket over and fold the left shoulder back. towards the right.

STEP 3:

Turn the right shoulder inside out, then tuck left shoulder into the right.

STEP 4: 


Fold it in half lengthwise,  then fold it horizontally.

STEP 5: 


Place the folded jacket in the center of the outstretched trousers.

STEP 6:


Fold the trouser bottoms over the jacket and repeat with the top of the trousers.

Best Man Responsibilities:

Besides the clothing responsibilities, the best man is in charge of the bachelor party. 

Bachelor party

The best man is responsible for throwing a suitable bachelor party for the groom and all his friends before the wedding. The best bachelor parties aren’t necessarily those where everyone drinks far too much, and the groom ends up chained to a lamp post wearing ladies’ underwear! That kind of night might be right up the groom’s street, but if not, then there are plenty of alternative ways to make this a special day. Escape Rooms are becoming more commonplace, and provide an ideal mix of action and distraction, as well as being highly entertaining. Many experiences only take an hour or so to complete – if you can unravel the mystery! After completing the escape room challenge, you could then head into town for a meal, and follow this up with a club or bar. If drinking isn’t your party’s thing, then games night, movie night, a sports event, or an outdoor challenge like a camping trip to the forest might be a better way of spending the day.

Couples generally hope that their wedding day will be a once in a lifetime experience, and that being the case it’s important that you take your role as best man seriously and make every effort to ensure the bride and groom enjoy the day as much as possible.

What are casual clothes?

Casual clothes are exactly what they sound like, the are the clothes you wear to casual events.

  • Jeans (clean, no holes)

  • Khakis (clean, no holes)

  • Plain T-shirt (no slogans)
  • Turtleneck (If cold outside)
  • Casual button-down shirt
  • Sweater
  • Loafers
  • Sneakers
  • Sandals
  • Hoodie

The great thing about casual wear, is you can wear pretty much any of these in any combination and still look amazing! Just to make sure you are okay, we have some helpful tips below!

Matching your clothes:

SOLID SAME COLOR

A great under-used style option. This combo elongates the body making you appear taller and thinner by not cutting the body in half visually. Because it is a clean casual look, it is a great way to highlight favorite accessories like shoes or a great belt.

TONE-ON-TONE

Tone-on-tone casual outfits are a great version of solid color outfits. The slight amount of difference in the color between a top and bottom can make a huge difference in the feeling of the outfit. Navy pants with a light blue shirt is a classic example of a tone-on-tone outfit. The options are endless, but shades of grey make for a very modern look.

NEUTRAL BOTTOM, COLOR TOP

The easiest way to add color into your casual style. And by “color” we advise blue, olive, and burgundy. No neons or other colors you may be questioning.

COLOR BOTTOM, NEUTRAL TOP

The opposite of above, best done with jeans or classic colors. Olive green pants make a great option for this outfit, olive can be treated as a neutral.

BACK TO WHITE

Similar to neutral combos, white is so versatile and classic it deserves its own category. This should be a staple look in every guys casual wardrobe. Be careful of white with black bottoms as the service industry has adopted this as their uniform. That is not to say you can not pull it off for more formal occasions or with a very casual look.

BACK TO BLACK

Black goes with everything – or so they say. Often under-used is the black on top casual outfit. This is a must for every man, skin tone, and body type, you really can’t go wrong.

Tips not to forget:

  • FORGET graphic tees. These will make you seem more like a boy than like a man.
  • Make sure your pants actually fit you. This means make sure the butt doesn’t hang too low and the bottoms don’t drag under your shoes. 
  • Pay attention to your shoes and belt as well.
  • Your shirt can be untucked or tucked in.
  • Add a watch, this will make you look a little more sharp and could be the extra thing to make your big impression.
  • Most importantly, DON’T over think it! It is casual

The Eldridge Knot:

There is no doubt that this knot is one of a kind. As opposed to the vast majority of tie knots, this one is produced by using the small end as the active end, creating a tapered fishtail braid-like effect. It’s a very fancy knot that will leave a great impression on your boss.

The trinity knot:

This beautiful knot has a three-way symmetry and resembles the Celtic Triquetra. The pattern converges at a center point, producing a very eye-catching effect. It might seem a bit intimidating at first glance, but the moves are actually fairly simple.

THE VAN WIJK KNOT

An augmentation of the Prince Albert, adding a third turning of the active end. When tied correctly, this long and slender knot creates a striking and unmistakable layered cylindrical effect. A very cool knot that works best with light colors. It’s best suited for narrow collared shirts and paired with a vest.

THE FISHBONE KNOT

This awesome work of tie artistry is shaped in the form of a fishbone, hence the name. It’s a remarkable formal knot that is increasingly gaining respect. While somewhat challenging to tie, it’s definitely worth the effort, because it never fails to make the ultimate impression.

THE ROSE KNOT

Looking to get in touch with your romantic side? Check out this amorous necktie knot crafted in the shape of a rose. It shares similarities with the Trinity Knot, but is tied with an extra loop. This knot is sure to be a hit on V-Day.

THE ELLIE KNOT

It’s a simplified variant of the Eldredge Knot, but easier to tie and consumes less fabric, leaving a tail that allows it to be tightened or loosened like a normal windsor. It works best with semi-wide collar openings.

THE TRUELOVE KNOT

A sophisticated complex knot that is divided into four quadrants. This is a very difficult knot to tie that will take considerable practice. Consider a striped tie for a pinwheel effect. This knot isn’t for little boys, it’s for lady killers.

THE BOUTONNIERE KNOT

This knot is characterized by its long loops, making it good for wide collar openings. The moves are very similar to that of the Fishbone Knot, but it has a somewhat cleaner finish when tucked under the collar. Use it semi-formally.

THE MEROVINGIAN KNOT

Originally known as the Ediety Knot, if you’re a big fan of The Matrix, you’ll recognize this knot sported by the merovingian. This knot is very special. It looks like your tie is actually wearing a little miniature tie.
