Tailored suit for Business
Heritage tailored suit
These are suits the features of which stem from the Sartorial, Italian, or English traditions.
The fabrics are more varied and patterns appreciated (Prince of Whales, broad stripes, window-pane...).
Regarding the lapels, whether small-notched or straight, they are more generous in size: at least 8 centimeters, and all the way up to 12 centimeters for the most daring.
Double-brested jackets have regained popularity, and the wearing of a 3-piece, with or without mismatched waistcoat, is equally quite appreciated by individuals preferring this range of tailored suit.
The work of assembling a suit is also an important element for the aficionados of this world. They don't hesitate in choosing traditional compositions (full canvas) or certain particular details such as the milanese buttonhole.
Traditional tailored suit
These are the basics of any gentleman's wardrobe. Most often a dark color (navy blue or coal grey), the traditional suit is timeless and can be worn during any occasion (work, ceremony, dressy night out,...).
This is a two-piece suit of which the proportions evolve slowly with time. The lapels are of an average size (7 centimeters, most often), the jacket is of standard length (covering all of the backside, up to the mid-thigh), and the jacket's exterieur remains quite sober.
In terms of cut, the trend is going toward fitted, but not all the way to slim, however. Indeed, the comfort of a traditional tailored suit must be sufficient so as to adapt to different situations.
Trendy tailored suit
The trendy tailored suit follows fashion trends without being afraid to violate the traditional codes! The lapels are narrow and the jackets are shorter.
The cut of the jacket is very close-fitting and the pants are often as slender as possible with the lower leg sometimes reduced to 17 centimeters.
Regarding fabric there are fewer rules. trendy suits can be traditional (coal grey, navy, black) or brighter (electric blue, light grey,...), or even eccentric.
Finally, the customization is more liberal: buttonholes and buttons in contrast, or even very decided color choices and lining details.
