HOW IS MY PERSONAL & BUSINESS BLAZER SUPPOSED TO FIT?
When it comes to the right blazer fitting, for your business blazers or personal blazers these are a few pointers to keep in mind when purchasing a new garment or getting fitted for tailoring.
If the lapel billows out awkwardly or won’t lie flat against your chest with the top jacket button closed, your jacket is too tight in the shoulders and you will need to get the next size up. Never make the mistake of sizing yourself based on how slim it fits around your torso, The shoulders fitting always comes first and it will determine whether you’ve got suiting knowledge or not. In contrary if the shoulders of the jacket hang out past your actual shoulders, or you can’t make out the shape of your chest or waist, your jacket is too big. Keep these tips in mind when going for a blazer fitting with your experienced tailor.
If the sleeves of your business blazers hang down near you knuckles, or the body of the jacket hangs down past your bottom, it’s too long. You will either need a shorter jacket length, or if you fall in between length sizes, you’ll need to get it adjusted by a master tailor. The jacket body should end mid-rear and sleeves should end at your upper wrist bone.
today’s fashion standard suggests length of jacket from wrist to first knuckle on thumb is considered an approved modern look ProTip: try the jacket on with your favorite dress shirt to get the right sleeve length of your suit. (Remember, the cuff of your shirt should show anywhere between 1’4″ to 1/2″). These are some of our tips when getting a blazer fitting done.
