What is a men's suit?
A men's suit is made of the same fabric in all its components. For example, you have two-piece and three-piece suits. A men's suit always consists of trousers and a jacket (two-piece suit). When the suit consists of a jacket, waistcoat and trousers, we talk about a three-piece suit. At The Garrison, we have many three-piece suits that are suitable for both formal and casual occasions. We have also created a category page with our most beautiful wedding suits.
What should you pay attention to when buying a men's suit?
There are several aspects that you should pay attention to when buying a men's suit. Below we provide an overview, so that you always look stylish and confident.
- First and foremost, the jacket should not be too long; If it falls past the bottom entirely, longer than the arms, it's definitely too long.
- The trousers should fit comfortably. Make sure that the trousers fit well when you stand up straight and that you are sure that you can walk in them all day long. Pleats at the hips also often show if trousers are too tight
- Focus on how the suit sits at the shoulders. This cannot be adjusted with most suits (at least, it doesn't get any better). It is, therefore, also good to know your shoulder size. For a men's suit, the shoulder pad should be where the shoulder ends and the arm begins. Sleeve length and trouser length can be easily adjusted by a tailor
- Consider the color and patterns of the suit. It is important that the suit looks good on your skin tone. In general you play “safe” if you choose a black, gray or blue men's suit.;
- Choose a good fabric for your men's suit. Men's suits often consist of wool, cotton, linnen, viscose and/or polyester. Most of The Garrison's men's suits are a mix of wool, polyester and viscose. This makes our suits extra comfortable;
- Make sure you have matching accessories for your men's suit, such as a tie,, a shirt and stylish shoes
How do you wear a suit as a man?
Now you have a whole list of what to look out for when you are going to buy a men's suit. But you're not there yet; it is also important that you know how to wear a suit and that you adhere to a certain style etiquettes. Below are a few tips on how to wear a suit like a real man, as it should be.
Make sure to “test” your suit first
Normally, you would buy a suit long before the event that you are supposed to wear it for, such as a wedding or a gala. On the other hand, it is also possible that you have not worn a suit for a long time. Have you gained weight, lost weight, become wider or has your shoulder size changed in the meantime? Then it is good to “test” your suit just before the occasion. If necessary, you can purchase a suit at the last minute, in order to make sure that it fits your body. Especially when you have a suit with shoulder padding, it is good to test your suit. A suit does not look good if the shoulder pad falls over the shoulder.
Make sure that your tie is darker than your shirt
You want to create a contrast between the shirt and the tie. Normally, it id advised to wear a light shirt under a men's suit. This can be, for example, a white or a light blue shirt. It is also nice if you opt for a dark tie. Nowadays, you also see different patters in the ties, especially on informal occasions.
Always open your jacket when you sit down
This is one of the most famous style etiquettes. Nothing looks as unstylish as a closed jacket, when someone sits down. Unbutton the jacket or, if the occasion permits, take it off. This also prevents the buttons from getting loose.
Never close both buttons of your jacket
Do you have to stand up, for example, to give an important speech? Then never close both buttons again. Only the top button should be closed, if you are wearing a men's suit.
Choose a custom shirt
At The Garrison, you will find different models of shirts that can be perfectly combined with beautiful and stylish jackets. Also in this case, it is important that you know exactly how a shirt should fit in combination to the jacket. First of 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.

What is the difference between a suit and a tuxedo?
There is another difference between a Gentleman's suit and tuxedo. You only wear a suit on special occasions, such as a wedding. It can be made of different fabrics, such as wool, cotton or polyester. A suit is in most cases black, but there are also gray and blue suits. You can also wear a men's suit to work or on informal occasions. When choosing a men's suit for an everyday occasion, many more colors and combinations are possible.
A tuxedo, also known as the smoking, is a specific type of suit, often worn to proms and weddings. A tuxedo is usually made of black or dark blue fabric. It also consists of a black jacket with satin lapels and matching black trousers. A tuxedo should be paired with shiny shoes; you can also choose a bow tie a black tie or a bowtie.
