Appropriate fit for the overall picture

A detailed suit is an absolute must if you want it to fit well and follow the contours of your body. The better the fit, the more likely the suit will be able to provide the look you are looking for. The suit should fit like a glove and look like it was made for your physique. Of course, you can certainly achieve this by taking a suit to the tailor if it does not fully meet these conditions.

A perfect fit is exactly what you need to give a suit the right appearance and complete the look.

Complimentary trousers with a tailored suit

To achieve a successful Great Gatsby look during the Speakeasy period, purchase a 3-piece suit from The Garrison. Here you will find beautiful suits that specifically reflect the Peaky Blinders time atmosphere and with which you will undoubtedly leave an irresistible impression.

It makes a big difference to the overall look whether or not suspenders or a belt are required, as this also gives the jacket a custom look. Beautiful trousers that fit closely offer many possibilities to be combined with many a beautiful jackets.

Cuff or turn-up in trouser legs

To get the look completely stylish, it is an excellent choice to choose trousers with a turn-up at the bottom. This is also called a cuff and should be about five centimeters in width. Of course, you don't want the legs of your trousers to be too long, as this gives a very unkempt look. Trouser legs must also be adjusted to size, so that you can achieve a completely tight look. A tailor can help with this. At The Garrison you can easily choose a tailored pair of trousers by using a clear size chart. This way you can be sure that your Great Gatsby outfit is completely in line with the right style and that you will not look too much in it. If the size still deviates slightly from the correct length, you can always have it adjusted by a tailor. You never pay too much for a nice 3-piece suit at The Garrison, so the alterations are never expensive.

Custom shirts

At The Garrison you will find different models of shirts that can be perfectly combined with the beautiful and stylish jackets. It is also important that you know exactly how a shirt must fall in relation to the jacket. After all, the sleeves of the jacket should be shorter than the sleeves of the shirt. This way the shirt comes out about an inch below the jacket and your outfit gets a classic look. The beautiful jackets and shirts in Great Gatsby style of The Garrison will really impress you. Especially if you also carefully observe the etiquette around the buttons. For example, the bottom buttons of both the shirt and the jacket should be open. Unless you sit down, because then the top button can also be undone for comfort. On the shirt itself, the top button should be closed, so that the tie can be folded nicely around it. Collar buttons may be loose again. The tie should be pulled nice and tight, with a thick knot. The edge of the tie should fall just on the edge of the trousers, then it is well laid. This way you make a stylish impression on everyone and you come across as confident. Small details like these really do make a big difference.

The shoes complete the look

In addition to the suit, the choice of beautiful black shoes is of course just as important. Shoes complete the entire look and give just that extra finishing touch to style down to the last detail. Choose brogues or derbys in a black or tan color, depending on the type of suit you've chosen. You'll find plenty at The Garrison stylish accessories to complete the outfit. You can convince everyone of your fashion sense and no one will remember not to take you seriously. By combining the different parts of a stylish look, you can be sure that everything is perfectly coordinated. Wearing a suit thus becomes a matter of course, which you no longer have to worry about.
