Men Suit

The modern suit did not appear until the mid-nineteenth century, but its origins can be traced to how the revolution in men's dress set by Charles II, King of Great Britain in the 1660s. Charles, after the example of the court of Louis XIV at Versailles in 1666 decreed that at court, men had to wear a long coat or jacket, a vest, a scarf (ancestor of the modern necktie) a wig and trousers gathered at the knee, as well as a hat to the outside.
The wedding suit for several centuries until the middle of the past consisted of a business suit, since household savings were not allowed to have multiple costumes, much less one for ceremony to use one day.

Generally it was double breasted and what distinguished it as ceremonial attaire were accessories like vest, twins, double cuff shirt or ascot tie which gave it the status of a suit to ceremony.
Although it is hard to see the origin of the modern business suit and colored in the elaborate court dress of the seventeenth century, the basic pattern has survived for more than four years with some adjustments, despite the abandonment of wigs and pants at the knee after the French Revolution; the rise of British tailoring, which used steam, pressure, padding and starched to shape wool cloth body; the invention of the modern tie late nineteenth century; and the gradual disappearance of waistcoats and hats in the last fifty years.

What we call modern suit was originally a nineteenth century English innovation in clothing.

Originally, it was called  lounge suit and was used only in the field and on the beach. The lounge suit became increasingly in a casual way to dress getting itself to reserve only for recreation.

The lounge suit was widely used increasingly in the late nineteenth century as a pledge of casual day for the city until it started to become acceptable to all morning as security for the city in the early twentieth century alternative.

Meanwhile, the lounge suit became increasingly popular, so that even the most humble men had at least one set to wear to church on Sunday.
The vest was used regularly with the suit until the Second World War.
The wedding suit usually consists of:

  • Froack coat or jacket mainly on black, dark blue, light gray and dark gray, even white and ivory. 
  • Trousers of the same fabric or contrasting top, according to the style and personality of the groom. 
  • Double-cuff shirt with spread collar or wing tip. 
  • Vest of the same fabric or contrasting plain colors or embroidered brocade. 
  • Cufflings. 
  • Neck tie: ascot tie or bow tie. 
  • Black shoes, but also supports other types. 
  • Suspenders. 
  • Tie pin. 
  • Pocket Handkerchief. 
  • Pocket watch. 

As for the colors: navy blue dress suit either morning or evening regardless, although it is always best to reserve this color for the evening.

The navy suit is so easy that can be combined with shirts and ties almost any color and design.

For the morning, gray is the most appropriate color. Black or dark gray suits must reserve them for the night.

From my point of view, dressing a vest not only shows character and personality, but also provides shelter during the colder months of the year and conceals the stomach (if any).

What we consider in our suit

-Length. The jacket should cover the seat of the pants, but its length should not drop below the thumb knuckle when man usually stands with arms drooping at the sides.

-Neck. It should fit snugly, both behind and to the sides without forming bags, wrinkles or bumps.

-Back. Your setting should be natural and smooth. It is important that no bags or wrinkles forming in the line where the neck meets the body of the jacket.

Get out of sleeves. The cuffs should protrude 1.25 cm and 1.75 cm.

-Lapels. Should be flat in the area where they bend to form the collar of his jacket, where slope gently down to the height of the first button. They are not to be thus lifted or raised.

-Waist. The jacket to the waist, should fall naturally, without getting much without forming wrinkles.

-Breasting. The most elegant suit is a double breasted one but if we choose a single breasted suit, it should have two buttons. However, if it is a wedding suit, the best thing is a button.

-Openingss. Classical are two rear openings on each side of the hip. For formal suit, it is usually with a single central aperture and a single button.


-Adjustability. Whether used with belt or suspenders, pants should rest on the hip bone. The important thing is to have a good fit in the seat or as loose or bags that are so tight that exaggerated buttocks mark. If the pants fit, no purse or folds formed in the crotch. Trending are currently no pants with tweezers.

-Length. Should touch, at least the upper of the shoe. It can be low and without these. Many pants without low can have a cutting angle, so that they are slightly behind that in front longer.

-Types. Straight crossed or asymmetrical. In the straight jacket should not fasten the last button, while in the other two, must button all the buttons.
