About Basic suit alterations you might need?
unless you’re having a suit custommade exactly to your measurements, then it’s basically guaranteed that you will need to have your newlypurchased suit altered in one way or another. usually, it falls down to one or more of these basic modifications: Having the sleeves shortened. Put simply, you want to have a quarter to a half inch (at least half a centimeter to about one full centimeter) of your shirt cuff (sometimes known as the “linen”) visible when your hands are resting at your side. very few store-bought suits are made to accommodate this detail. Hemming the pants. On a related note, having a cuffed or a non-cuffed pair of pants is purely a matter of preference. Oh, and you might want to have your pants properly sized around your waist while you’re at it. Suppressing the waist of the jacket. this is done to accentuate the ideal “v” shape of your torso and get rid of the typical boxy shape of storebought suit jackets.
