About Ba­sic suit al­ter­ations you might need?

DA MAN - Style - - Style Faq -

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.
