Trends in Suits Come and Go

Ever since the male fashion suit, as we know it today has been around, there have been tweaks and changes from year to year.  The bottom line is still that choosing the perfect suit depends on personal taste and preference and body type. The suit trends for 2009 and 2010 are classic and that is a good look in anyone’s books. Besides the trend aspects, there are other considerations when you invest in a new suit and these can make quite a difference to how you look.

Let’s talk buttons

The normal choice in buttons for male fashions suits one, two or three buttons. The number of buttons on a suit jacket has a visual impact and one button makes the wearer appear shorter and more compact, making it only suitable for the very tall.

Two buttons on the other hand gives a slimmer look to the waistline and makes the wearer look taller, so this is always a good choice. The three-button jacket of the 90s are back in fashion and of course it gives the illusion of even greater height, but not a look that is easy to pull off, so only for those with great self-confidence. This brings us to four buttons; yes, those are around at the moment and simply said, they look bad; it’s just too overdone.

Choose your cloth wisely

Male fashion suits come in many different fabrics and your choice of fabric is normally the biggest factor that influences the price. Your fabric selection will often depend on whether you want to wear the suit for many seasons, or if it’s a one-season buy. Wool has always been a clear favorite for durability and comfort. You can never go wrong with wool as long as you look at the thread count [120 – 150]. This ensures a good weave.

Cotton on the other hand is fashionable, airy and looks great in light and dark colors. Take note though, that cotton should always be worn as an informal suit and yes, it will crease quite a lot. Linen simply spells summer and is a great investment for humid climates and stands out in a crowd when worn in cream or white.

These are of course not the only factors that come into consideration when choosing male fashion suits. Mostly though factors such as shoulder padding and lapel styles boil down to what you as the wearer prefer and feel most comfortable with.
