Finding a suit doesn’t always mean you have to spend a fortune, or visit a tailor.
Not only can a full three-piece be costly, but it can be time consuming too.
Some shoppers will prefer to try and buy a suit on in store, instead of returning to the shop on numerous occasions to have your measurements taken and for further fittings.
But that is not to say you can’t find the perfect tailored number straight off the hanger.
And with wedding season fast approaching suits are high on men’s shopping lists.
When shoppers are on the look out for a suit, there’s a number of factors to take into consideration, such as the style, colour, print, fabric and the price.
While some may be on the hunt for a three piece suit, complete with a waistcoat, others may want to buy a classic two piece, tails or even a suit jacket on its own.
Then you have the colour, print, and fit to add into the mix, whether it is straight, slim fit, regular or a design with more stretch in.
A navy suit is one of the most popular colours for men, with black and grey suits also in the top three buys.
However, there has been a shift in men wearing patterned designs, such as checked co-ords, tweed, dog tooth prints, and even textured creations, such as velvet dinner suits.
Shoppers may also be swayed by the pocket detail. Some males will prefer subtle jetted pockets, or an angled add on, while ticket and patch pockets are also a popular design feature.
There are also different vents to choose from, as well as lapels and button fastening, so there is no wonder buying a suit for a formal occasion, or work, can be a difficult process.
Whether you are looking for a full morning suit for a wedding, a classic number to wear to the office, or a patterned design for other formal occasions, there is something to suit everyone’s style preferences and budget.
