How to wear a suit

Make sure your jacket’s shoulder seams sit on the ends of your shoulder blades. Ensure your jacket’s body isn’t too tight. You should be able to fasten all the jacket’s buttons without straining the fabric around the waist. Wear a slim-fit shirt underneath, so your suit doesn’t bunch. Add a pop of colour with a pocket square.

Interesting alternatives

Change up smart looks by wearing a polo with tailoring, in place of a shirt. The soft collar gives your look a more relaxed feel, but it’s still more shirt than tee.
