Praise The Double-breasted Suit

 In this post, Jean-Philippe Peltier (lawyer by) attempts to capture the essence of a very special double-breasted bespoke suit. Thank you for this dear reader to give us this original analysis.
What is rare is valuable.If the adage is not always true in dress code, some of the innovations that can sometimes cause the fear of others, it nonetheless it applies perfectly breasted suit.How can we cross suit of the same name in a day?Sometimes no.It is unfortunate that scarcity and see at the same time that those who are supposed to be (really) the best dressed men are very regular with this type of suit.So is it, for example, Edouard Balladur, Prince Charles, and a few years ago, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin ...


1.jpg
2.jpg

What is the reason for this?It stems from a simple observation: masculinity is no longer in fashion. Wisdom either.For the double-breasted suit is, without a doubt, a mature man who has had his moment of glory at a time when the icons are called Gabin, Ventura or Cary Grant garment.

6.jpgToday, however, the male must be young metrosexual, when it is not clearly effeminate (see young beardless youths marching in length podiums) to enthuse ....And if the manly man is "in the know", he must not wear any sign of elegance to cultivate, so sadly binary, a thick rough side bearing no consideration to its implementation ...Thus, and as time passes, the costume and personalities fade ...But back to our vicuna ...This standardization of elites (political, cultural, etc.). Finds undeniably in fashion so that each wanting resemble other and vice versa, we see a set of mirrors, with the result inevitably tend to erase codes and impoverishment of style.Specifically, the double-breasted suit has given way to the law suit, which was still very wide in the 80s before being bent more and more narrow, from 3 to 2 button (which is not bad) , clips of pants from them about two to one, now to be non-existent in most cases ...But how is it that today the double-breasted suit is still, despite everything, a model of elegance?In fact, it is less suit the personality of the wearer reveals the elegance of this dress.And when it comes to personality, it is not about the illusion that try to instill some "stars" fleeting moment or Apollo, but the density of the soul that has the double-breasted suit.Must admit that the age of the grantee is a fundamental key to the success of the whole. Indeed, forging a true personality is most often associated with the passage as time permits in the look and gestures of those who are found to have this gift from heaven called charisma.Just compare young people, known and unknown, with the double-breasted suit (even good cut) ...

Unknown ... and who share this personable that gives a perspective on the things in life ...



13.jpg

16.jpg
... To realize that some people have that "something" that others do not ...Therefore, the double-breasted suit is a revealing!Some seem primed disguised, even ridiculous (Johnny Thanks for this moment of fun), while others are undeniably elegant.Are we so not all equal before (and especially) the double-breasted suit?It is interesting to note that there is no such right costume can be worn without significant difficulty by anyone, a model of good enough cut so as to give the owner a certain elegance.The double-breasted suit, then, would require a certain amount of wisdom, experience and maturity to be worn?Of course, there is something that is very in tune with the times, the mass to have access to anything and everything on the poor who otherwise would be to make a reservation would deal with reactionary.This is probably why the "fashionistas" are old-hat cross-cheap custom suit, which is now "in" is to reach the lowest common denominator ...Nevertheless, the nature and being well made, it is clear that members of the "club of those who can wear the double-breasted suit" break away from the melee reassuring ... and boring."We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" said Wilde ...Arguably, taking the quote upside down, as long as the stars remain, some of us have reason to look up.

Things to consider before buying a man's suit


It is well known that perfect dress wearer is able to make a good impression and positive fact. Those who participate in an interview or an official meeting generally prefer to wear a bespoke suit on such occasions. Perfect Man Costume consists of a clean shirt, jacket, pants, etc. It not only reflects the personality of a person in a good way, but also make it look better and professional. This dress comes in different shapes and sizes, and a person must choose according to their own body type and body structure. Some prefer to wear readymade garments while others prefer to have a custom.

A made to measure suit looks much better than a ready-made dress. This is because the Costume Custom is made ​​according to the specific needs and requirements. This will help a person to create their own style statement. With that person is free to choose its own fabric and a piece of clean cloth. It is good to choose the best quality. Even if you have to stretch your budget a little, try to find a good fabric. Think of all the other accessories you'll wear with the dress. These accessories include shoes, ties, belts, etc. Keep the color scheme in your mind before buying a dress. It is good to wear a light colored shirt with a dark jacket or vice versa. Many clothing stores have set up their sites from which you can get their contact information and other important information.

Elegance of the Revolt - Cut Shop

  Elégance de la Révolte - DandyMaxim

Each week is punctuated by sending in our inbox Sodandy, news announcing the launch of a custom suits new brand. Superlatives are well underway, and the discourse of "Made in France" is often at the rendezvous. In this emerging mass, it is easy to sort: there are few projects that stand out.
Elegance of the Revolt
And then, there are projects that do not communicate, do not have to press release and even less "database of prospects." Why? Because the people who are causing focus on their products, rather than their marketing. Because these people are the "job" and not business schools. Elegance Revolt is one of those simple and beautiful stories to tell, and these products are easy to appreciate.
Elegance of the Revolt
In the beginning there was a custom made suits . It is that of a grandfather in the 1940s. Then there is a small son, as an adult, which carries today. Elegance Revolt left of this real fact and the heavy coat that has spent years to build a story incorporating fictional elements.
The character of Albert Camus and his image on the cover of the novel "The Stranger" embody the gesture of revolt. The story of Elegance Revolt borrows wearing collar turned to the writer to be an element of modernity.
Elegance of the Revolt
Elegance of the Revolte edit, or rather re-edit, this coat, adding some customizations, but almost identical to the 1940 patronage. The characteristic length of the side is, for example, retained. Originally made from a thick wool, new fabric choices are available. Three wool, thicknesses and colors, and a black cashmere come up the offer. The fabrics are English, the Moon house. Other than the fabric, you can choose the shape of the pockets, the length of coat and sleeves. Each coat is the customer's choice.
Elegance of the Revolt
Until August 3, you can try out these coats from the 1940s to the workshop Made in Town. The original and the cutting table mantle are exposed. When ordering, the latter is used for cutting different pieces that constitute the liner and the mantle. Cutting will be carried out on site and according to orders. The coats are then assembled in another studio in Paris.
Here we must recognize a manufacturing process margin of production "normal." The cheap custom suits is based on customer demand and not the reverse. The project is positioned in the Slow movement Made that embodies the "time" in product development. Elegance Revolt has already attracted the attention of L'Uomo Vogue Italia which devotes a section dedicated to these timeless coats: A workshop di eleganza classica e per il sartoriale lancio della linea Elegance Revolt.

And good ideas are illustrated in the above look: take advantage of colored lining in jeans to appear when the bar bent liner give the guys, wear a cardigan with double-breasted to "diferentar a" cardi look, wear the same shirt with tie tone of the same color (great for those who want to wear a tie casually walks but shy to try) or with a same tone pattern and cast off these layers with a jacket, if not very long which makes everything cool / stripped. A longer would give a more up to the mount. And you can use the cardi with double-breasted coat and idem as aboatoamento could use one of the other double-breasted or single breasted with two simple. I think one of each is more interesting, but it is up to you.

Measures of His Suit


More to the point, the guidelines for action suit are:
The jacket of your custom suits should always cover your ass completely. Point. If you are the type vertically challenged, ie a troupe of little people, I recommend the jacket to stretch just enough to cover the butt and stop just below the curvinha which connects to the leg. More than that will further shorten your legs.
For anyone who is of medium height or tall, can go a little further. But not much, just a little further down the line pattern of shorties until the height of the trunk and legs equivalham visually.
If tall one and want or need to "shorten" your legs because they are too long ... then go down a little more. But no hype, just the need to balance the silhouette if needed. Otherwise, the pet swallows you up.
A good way to know how far your jacket should go is standing up with his arms stretched down. Then grab the hem of his jacket with his fingers making a spooning. Gave to grab the good? So this is when he should be. Nothing more, nothing less. But only one thing: who has short arms will not get good results with this technique does not. Ditto for long arms.

Mangas certasSleeves certain
Have the sleeves of the bespoke suit  must never exceed the limit that your hand down, let alone swallow it. The height of a right sleeve suit jacket is the height of the bone in your wrist (where it meets the hand) to allow at least one finger of the shirt appears this "loophole" without devouring its beautiful hands. And to be with him so estendidão beside the body (as pictured above). You can show a little more or a little less cuff depending on your taste, but always show because it demonstrates that you know what you're doing when it comes to suits.
Sleeves in place of the shirt and jacket

Mangas no lugar da camisa e do paletóThere are more modern variations, where you can shorten a little more this ratio, but it is just a little of. But siri is fishing, which is not the intention here.
Regarding pants ... you can opt for a height of trim where take to fully cover the socks and lightly touch the shoes. Or you can leave the bar a little longer leaving it to beat more or less at the time of the third braid (if the shoe is tying course) counting the toes upwards and getting above the height of the heel never cover it or get near it.

Na medida certa para cobrir meia e um tantinho de sapato!The right amount to cover stocking and shoe trifle!
Now, in any case, when standing, half should appear. Not walking. And it should not be too long to the point of forming a volume on the shoe. She has to fall straight and good, even with Italian bar. Or maybe, especially with her.

A real quick chat about ... Slim Suit

A real quick chat about ... Slim Suit


Slim feeling
It may seem like a suit slim is super duper skinny and therefore hyper uncomfortable, but it's not. For more skinny, slim that a suit is, and there are even slim strands and a slim suit (ours as slim!) Will have to be rather comfortable and follow those guidelines I gave on suits, which includes the principle that a custom suits whatever, should never be too tight, adjusted to the extreme point of restricting movements, wrinkle or twitch tissue. You always have to have a certain comfort in the equation, even if not visually appear, right?
Just doing this addendum because I got the impression that the impression that the slim suit makes at times is this. And it is not the case. At least it should not.
Another important thing: there are many gradations of a slim suit. It has the super set that attached a frame nicely flush with the body, but also those who have simply modeling ajustadinhos more than the traditional (which as I said is not that boxy but not one that bypasses the silhouette slightly, cinturando more discreetly body but cinturando) and that fall within the aesthetic rather slim because you can tell they are on the slim side tailoring. The suit the end of this video here is an example of the silhouette, which has a slim feeling more than anything else.

O tal do New Fit ou ContemporâneoWhat about the New Contemporary Fit or
But back to suits slim ... you can find here in Brazil, so the suits Ricardo Almeida or its variations in some stores they usually call it New Fit or bespoke suit  in contemporary Brooksfield or Roman Villa. They are more ajustadinhos the body and have a waist but a little more marked and more shoulder in place, with higher armholes sleeves, so to speak. And below the pants makes more sequinhas front and always being flat, ie no pleats. There are adhesive, and indeed should not be any suit, they should only look at the most so. But they are not there.
And just to finish, the super skinny is nothing democratic, since this takes the new contemporary fit or sayings ... are. So, bet on them.

Still on ... slim fit suits versus traditional - a modern battle?

 Mr. McQueen nos anos 70 e Hedi Slimane nowadays

A slim fit suit is a more cut close to the body, with armholes sleeves more snugly against the armpits, with a little over waist, ie, with an aesthetic somewhat slim both as jacket pants are flat front and larguinhas nothing but more sequinhas. This cut shows more and better silhouette. And resurfaced thanks to the then fashion designer Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme who decided to taper male silhouette a few seasons ago. Aesthetics not only avenged, as continues today. It is considered the modern silhouette and time.
Mr. McQueen in the 70s and nowadays Hedi Slimane
Already a bespoke suit traditional / classic, contrary to what many might think, is not that boxy and "disfórmico" that many out there not adopt. It is a suit cut so just a little bit more comfortable, so obviously without revealing the curves of the body, but it should still be set to the silhouette (and curves) user, without, however produce a result as slim as a stick fit. I would say that the traditional flirts gently with the male body, while the slim fit / cut is the most blatant flirting. Ie, the traditional is a suit more visually relaxed without being too relaxed. I would say he is a cognate of the slim fit and contemporary, as indeed it is called here. Get the idea?

Traditional Fit ajustado para a silhueta do usuárioTraditional Fit adjusted to the user's silhouette
It is clear that a traditional custom suit (which is not the boxy but a slim fit with the related right to have even waist etc and such) or even a shed more light of slim fit tend to be more democratic for male force. Just remember that a suit slim fit, and ensuring a modern silhouette is highly "powerful" visually, because among other things it is undeniably "personalized".
But do not worry traditionalists ... since a well-cut suit and adjusted to your silhouette or even tinged with slim fit if you prefer, will have a similar impact. This, I assure you.

Milan catwalks reaffirms Slim Fit Suits for Spring-Summer

 

The famous brands who marched in Fashion Week Milan Menswear show that most suits sequinhos here to stay among the young. The Dolce & Gabbana was our favorite which launched for spring-summer 2012-2013 collection Milan Fashion Uomo, highlighting the elegant tailoring their custom suits in shades graphite, gray and navy, in addition to off-white compositions that have received much attention. The jackets 1 or 2 buttons flush with the body, bandaging, with narrow sleeves and short, balanced silhouette that prioritizes the physical forms in day (shapes). The models paraded shirtsleeves appearing and bent bars (not the old Italian bar), wearing shoes without socks to show that slim suits can also be used in a more casual style, ie, for less formal occasions.
Other brands such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani, Prada, Alexander McQuenn, Bottega Veneta and Costume National also joined the light style, stripped, leaving younger men, without losing the elegance. Some bet on long jackets and pierced (classic blazers) with up to 6 buttons and pants modeling broad and loose (type wide legs), but for our part we do not believe that this proposal is going to be steady as a trend among young Brazilians who are valuing enhance the body and prefer pants skinnies.

Suit Fabric Quality

Clothing Customization Options


One of the many ways to determine the quality of a bespoke suit is the super count. Super count is the measurement of the diameter of the woolen fiber that is used to construct the cloth. For example, super 100's are made from 18 microfibers. Super 120's and 150's fabrics are made from even finer woolen fibers. The higher the super count, the finer the fibers.

Wear Braces With Trousers

It's rare to see a well-dressed man without a belt these days, but the leather belt as a practical garment is a fairly recent invention. Prior to the First World War, belts were largely decorative outside of military uniforms (and even then were often more decorative than practical among officers and aristocrats).

Clothing Customization Options



This goes hand in hand with selection; with a custom bespoke suit you are free to adjust as many aspects of your suit’s style as you wish. There are no such things as strange requests; need one sleeve longer than the other (most men’s arm are not the same length!) - done. Are you a detective and need a suit that hides the bulge of your weapon - easy. Do you want to make a statement with a flashy lining - what color? Custom clothing is just that; Custom.

Wear Braces With Trousers

It's rare to see a well-dressed man without a belt these days, but the leather belt as a practical garment is a fairly recent invention. Prior to the First World War, belts were largely decorative outside of military uniforms (and even then were often more decorative than practical among officers and aristocrats). The traditional device for holding up a man's trousers was a pair of suspenders, and to this day they remain a preferred method by many fine dressers.
Suspenders (which are called braces in the United Kingdom, where suspender refers to a garter belt) are straps of cloth that go over a man's shoulder and down to the front of his trousers, where they either clip or button to the waistband. Most suspenders join in the back in either an X-shape or a Y-shape, to keep pairs from being separated, but they can be bought as two individual straps as well.
Construction can vary depending on brand, with suspenders being made in materials ranging from pure silk to synthetic rayon; woolen boxcloth is a traditional and durable staple. Suspenders tend to be elasticized, either at the ends or all the way around the strap. They usually end in a leather flap which affixes to buttons within the trouser waistband, or in clips which grip the top of the waistband.

Suit Fabric
There's no reason to cut corners on a suit that's representing you to employers -- find something in a good wool with enough weight to ensure a clean drape. A small amount of other fibers in the blend is perfectly acceptable, and may even give your suit some added durability, but avoid anything with a high percentage of synthetic fiber, or anything that has a slickly smooth sheen to it. The matte finish of good wool gives a neat drape and a restrained personal effect that projects neatness and tidyness at an interview.

The Bespoke Suit Is The Uniform Of Choice For Men

Thanks to both its stylish and practical versatility, the bespoke suit is the uniform of choice for men whose jobs take them from office to construction site, loading dock, or factory floor. While the hallowed suit-and-tie look can appear out of place outside the business district these days, the sport coat can go anywhere. Teachers, independent retailers, and professional counselors find it a boon to the friendly, while distinguished presentation their vocations invite.

For play clothes, the rules are a little different but the basic idea is the same: you want to look good without standing out. The omnipresence of the jacket with collar and lapels across all sorts of men's clothing is no accident: this configuration is aesthetically pleasing whether in a tailcoat or a safari jacket. The sport coat brings the concept to a garment that's comfortable and easy going, perfect for the weekend.

  In the United States, comfort reigns tyrannically over leisure clothing, and some men worry about looking sufficiently relaxed wearing a jacket when off duty. Social concerns aside, a man is simply more attractive in a sport coat than in a sweatshirt, and this fact should encourage those who fear drawing accusations of looking "uptight" if they wear anything they can't play basketball in. The sheer beauty of tailored clothing transcends this country's present obsession with being laid back.



The line between "light gray" and "medium gray" can be difficult to draw, but a good rule of thumb is that any shade a white pinstripe would stand out against is medium gray. At the point where white threads are disappearing into the overall color, the gray is true light gray. The thread should still be visible after a moment's inspection or up close, of course -- a true white suit is a completely different creature, and men have no business wearing anything that could be mistaken for one outside of a wedding or a disco.
Light gray suits are casual wear. They do not belong in conservative offices that still adhere to strict business-dress standard. A man could wear one in a workplace that does not require suits and ties, but should understand the formal limitations of lighter colored suiting.
In fact - versatility wise - he might be better served with a sport jacket and odd trousers at that point. A light gray suit is something to wear to dinner, out dancing, or just around the town on a day off.
Light gray suits are rarely patterned. Patterning reduces the formality further, to the point that a sport jacket and odd trousers would make more sense than a matched suit of such aggressively informal design. When it is done, light gray suits are usually patterned with darker threads, typically in pinstripes or faint plaids and checks. These are borderline novelty garments, most commonly seen on entertainers and cultivated eccentrics.

Sport Coat Carries A Mixed Ancestry

Today's sport coat carries a mixed ancestry from the days when men didn't go outside their homes without a jacket and tie. In the late nineteenth century, the English gentleman wore a brown tweed jacket in the country to hunt foxes on horseback or shoot birds; it was back vented and bore large, slanted pockets. In the cricket and rowing clubs closer to town, batsmen and crew members sported uniforms of single-breasted blazers in their clubs' colors. The double-breasted navy-blue blazer was first worn on a British frigate in 1837, by sailors dressing to impress the visiting queen. In Europe and America between the world wars, the various sport coats that these nineteenth century jackets begat took hold of leisure fashion and haven't let go since.

A man in the market for a sport bespoke suit today has a wealth of options for customizing it. The jacket may retain some of the original sporting details, such as a back vent and slanted pockets, or may be made with side or no vents, and flap, patch, or besom (slit) pockets. They come in many colors and patterns, of tweed, corduroy, flannel, silk, linen, seersucker, and other fabrics. A coat's image varies somewhat depending on these details, but the basic idea is the same: The sport jacket is a handsome, respectable garment that can go anywhere.
