The suit is an essential part of any man’s wardrobe, but getting it right can be difficult. So we’ve put together a buying guide to help you find a suit that fits you perfectly.
The fit is the most important aspect of any suit. Regardless of the style, a suit must make you look smart and feel comfortable. A suit that fits well makes you look elegant but, more importantly, feel confident.
If you’re a regular size, most styles will suit you. However, we also offer styles that are great for both smaller and larger frames.
And remember, we offer mix and match, so you can choose a different jacket and trouser size to ensure your suit fits you perfectly.

Your jacket should compliment your frame and be nipped in at the waist.
Measure your chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close under your arms.
If you’re unsure about your size, try a jacket one size smaller – it will fit better on the shoulder and be less restricting than a size that’s too large.
Across the top of your shoulders is a key measurement. The outermost part of your shoulders should fit exactly where the shoulder seam of the suit ends.
Make sure there’s no ‘Leeds crease’ – this is where the fabric at the back of the jacket creases between the shoulders when the jacket is too tight.
With the arms relaxed in their normal position by your side you should just be able to cup the hem of the jacket in your hands.
Shorter jackets are a fashionable look at the moment. However, if you have a larger frame, it’s best to stick to a longer jacket to elongate your silhouette.
Single breasted remains the most popular shape. If you’re slim, a single button works best.
If you’re wearing a one-button jacket, fasten the button. Two button jackets should be worn with the top button fastened.
When wearing a three-button jacket, fasten the middle button.
Trouser width should be comfortable, especially through the thigh.
To accentuate your upper body, go for slim cut trousers – also a great choice if you’re shorter.
Trousers should hang neatly and straight at the back with the break on the front over the shoe.
There should be some shirt sleeve visible – one to two centimetres ideally.
We offer three lengths of jacket sleeve to choose with each chest size – short, medium and long.
