If you want to buy suits online there are a number of things to consider.
The most important thing is to get the right measurements .We have included a video of our own tailoring expert Mr.Tom Crowley showing how it is done.Tom has been with us for over thirty years and his expertise and knowledge of tailoring knows no bounds.
Suits come in sets so it is very important to be aware of the range of sizes that they come in. If the suit is not the mix and match type these are the trousers that go with the various jacket sizes;
36 – 30
38 – 32
40 – 34
42 – 36
44 – 38
46 – 40
48 – 42
All of these jackets and trousers come in short, regular and long fittings. Short is for a man of 5 feet 9 inches and under, regular is for a man of average height and long is for the taller man. The various trousers can also come in short, regular and long. A short leg is 29.5 inches, regular is 31.5, and long is 33.5. This may vary ever so slightly from supplier to supplier.
If the suit is available to buy online as a mix and match you can choose any size trousers to go with any size jacket. This can be very handy if the person is slightly disproportionate.
Once you know what the sizing system is it should be easy enough to figure out what sizes you need and most websites will have a sizing guide to help you through the self measurement process.
Just follow the instructions on the sizing guide and everything should be fine.
