Time for a New Suit?

Nothing adds polish and power to your attitude like a new suit. Making a good 2- or 3-piece investment can be tricky.

Valet magazine offers a few tips:

  • Choose fabric according to how often you’ll wear the suit, the higher the
    “super number,” the more delicate the fabric.
  • Check the build: squeeze the fabric, it should bounce back without wrinkles.
  • Tug a button, check the stitching, are there wrinkles in the sleeve or lapel seams?
  • Spend time trying on a few different brands, and be sure you and the tailor agree on the final

Finally, when getting your suit cleaned, be sure to have the jacket and trousers cleaned together to maintain color integrity.
