   MODERN DAY TAILORING

  The men's suit is experiencing a metamorphosis.
  Reinvigorating the menswear scene so evident
  in the Dolce&Gabana menswear collection above.
  The lightweight, airy and enduring suit with the
  perfect fit draping over the athletic and sculptured
  men's torso is made by weavers continuously
  challenging the rules and breathing ability.
  The immediacy of warmer weather sees the   
  increased availability of of cooler suit fabrics.
  Thin threads in suits and light weaves facilitate
  smart dressing despite soaring temperatures.
  Clever menswear designers and bespoke tailors
  associate themselves with European and Italian
  tailoring methods where fit and fabrication is the
  most important in a collection.
  The industry has been dominated by unlined jackets
  and the perfect fit. While technical innovation may
  influence the role of the suit, it remains the most
  elegant piece in a gentleman's wardrobe.

  WHAT'S THE DROP?

  A suit jacket is determined by measuring the thickest
  part of a man's chest in inches while the trousers
  sizes are determined by measuring the the waist
  at the belt line and will be found just on top of
  your hip bones. In most cases. A frequently occurring
  term used for suits, the drop is the difference 
  between the chest circumference of the jacket and
  the waist of the trousers. For example, drop 7 implies
  that the waist of the jacket and the trousers are 
  seven inches smaller than the chest circumference
  of the suit jacket. The drop measure is often 
  combined with the letters S(short) R(regular)
  and L(long) indicates the length of the jacket.
  Always bear in mind that there are many exceptions
  to the rule and many suit manufacturers have their
  own way of measuring. 


  
   SUIT UP!

  A CRASH COURSE ON THE PERFECT FIT

  KEY FEATURES THAT MAKE THE FLAWLESS SUIT

  SHOULDERS-The fit of the shoulders is one of the
  first things you should check.Take your time finding
  the right size, but remember to pick a model that
  matches the natural shape of your shoulders.

  SILHOUETTE-Skinny, athletic or broad, the shape of
  the suit needs to be in line with your body type.
  Bear in mind that very few off-the-peg suits fit
  perfectly the first time. Only buy from a retail store
  with a good alterations-tailor.

  THE BACK-Look for a crease free back that allows 
  the jacket to fall smoothly over the shoulders,
  creating an hourglass shape around the waist.

  THE SHAPEL-The collar and shapel of the suit
  jacket should hang freely and crease free around the
  neck and over the chest.

  SLEEVE HOLE-The detail of the cut of the armhole
  reveals the quality level of the suit.In contrast to
  common assumptions, narrow arm holes allows for 
  increased movement and a more elegant feel.

  SUIT TROUSERS-Check that the creases are 
  straight when standing up. The length is a matter
  of personal taste and most come unfinished.
  However, for the modern look, opt for a narrow 
  trousers to fall at the top of your shoes.
