Guide on how a suit should fit part 3

How a jacket of the suit should fit, number 4: chest

When it comes to a good fit of the chest, it is always easy to see because some chests are fuller and they have more fabric that drapes well and for that, it is called “drape”. The advantage of folds is that they make your chest look bigger and they give you a nice v-shape. When your chest width is too tight and you move around, you can see your lapel break a little bit because there is not enough space, and also you can see vertical pleats in the front and in the back. You should always measure your chest at the widest point.

How a jacket of the suit should fit, number 5: vents

Today, most jackets have side vents and they are the most flattering. Ideally, you want high long vents that end exactly where your jacket pocket ends. The last hundred years, center vents have been in and out of fashion but, they were meant for horseback riding so unless you wear a jacket on the back of a horse, do not buy it. In the 1920s and 1930s, a ventless jacket was popular and it still is popular for evening wear, because it gives you the ultimate clean line. If you put your hands in your pocket, side vents are much more flattering.

How a jacket of the suit should fit, number 6: length

It is very important to get it right in the first place because if the length is not right, your jacket will not make you look good. The proportions will not work and the location of your pockets will seem off as well as the buttoning point and therefore if you tried something that is too short or too long, leave it behind and do not buy it.
