An ill-fitting and poorly tailored suit can be identified even from a distance and has a damaging effect on your image. So getting the right fit in a suit and having it properly tailored is rather important for a partygoer. This is more so if you have any concern about how you wish to impress your peers and the guests around. The first thing to do is to get properly measured your neck, shoulders, sleeves, chest, waist, and inseam. Once you know your size you are free to do the shopping for pantsuits. You must then pay attention to the choice of fabrics.
Unless you have a closet full of suits and want something different, worsted wool is the best bet for a night party. These include gabardines or mid-weight corded wools. You will come across suits that say “Super 100” which are very popular –all this means is that the yarn has been twisted more often than the usual 60-80 twist wools. Either way, they are considered to be of bearable weight. These fabrics have a tendency to return to original shape without wrinkling even after it is squeezed. Just remember that worsted wools wear well and are strikingly good immaterial whatever the type of the party.
Make absolutely sure that the waistline of your trousers is comfortable and that you can stick two fingers into the waist after wearing them. As far as pleats are concerned, although it is a question of a personal preference, pleats are recommended for those with larger tummies and not those who are lean. This is because pleated trousers if you help cover up your tummy and pleats, make a lean guy look even skinnier
Nothing makes you look clumsier at a party than a pile of fabric at your ankle. Your pants should reach your shoes and have a slight break. Cuffed or not is your personal choice, but remember that without cuffs makes you look taller if you happen to be a little shorter and cuffs look better on someone with long legs. Make sure your sleeve length is perfect or otherwise you may convey the impression you borrowed someone else’s suit. If the sleeve covers your shirt cuff, it is too long. It should just reach the base of your thumb, making you look very classy.
The jacket should fit easily across your stomach without betraying much protrusion. The traditional American cut suit with two buttons may not be the right party wear. Suit jackets which have three and four buttons are the appropriate ones to wear for parties. Some two-button jackets offer a fresh twist with higher button placement similar to the three-button style. This is more flattering and should serve well as a party suit. Whether your preferred style is classic or modern, always opt for fitted waistlines that enhance the shape of your body.
The one last advice, though not the least in importance – you should be able to stretch and bend easily in your party suit. Make sure that you that you have free movement of your arms and elbows. You must feel absolutely comfortable while sitting in a chair and getting up. Dark shades of brown and gray including black are great for late evening and night parties.
