You've made a solid choice, now let's do it right.
Wearing a suit is an art form. Luckily, we can show you how to make it look good.
Time to suit up.
Button the top button of the jacket only
Leave the bottom buttonof the vest undone
Button the 2nd or tightest button of shirt sleeve to keep it in place at your wrist
Make sure the shirt sleeve is showing about ½ inch outside of jacket sleeve when your arms are relaxed at your sides
Make sure to adjust the pants to sit about 2 inches under the belly button
Make sure pant hem sits right on top of the shoes (no break) Or a ½ break depending on age/preference
Unbutton your jacket when sitting down
Button the bottom button of the jacket or vest!
Have the jacket sleeves go down past your wrist (your jacket size is selected based on your height, weight, stomach and shoulder structure. Shortening sleeves is a very common alteration, beside the pant hem, for certain types of builds).
Have you pants sit below your hip bones. Suit pants need to be worn higher than jeans or shorts (wearing them lower than your natural waistline will make them look saggy and baggy).
Jam your hands in your pockets for photos (this sags the pants and makes the legs look baggy)
Keep things in your pants pockets- phone, wallet, keys, etc!
Have your wedding party wear 7 different types of shoes (colors and styles vary and can be an eyesore in group photos)
Lift your arms up like a zombie while wearing your jacket (And once the photos are behind you, just take the jacket off and dance the night away in the vest!)
Some Common Alterations
Pant Hem- REQUIRED
Jacket sleeve shortened or lengthened
Jacket Sides (taken in)
Pant Taper (clean up the legs of the pants or optional for an even slimmer look)
