Mens WEAR.

Thomas Mahon

Moving towards the festive season..most ladies and men gear up for parties..Appropriate Selection of clothes ..whether Suits for men or dresses for the ladies ..both are important...as it adds to a personality and in a way you get your money back spent on a particular outfit.I will talk about Mens wear
.."The Formals"
Right Choice of Men's Suit.
...Mens Wear is something a tedious job to find an Accurate Suit ..as per the built.
There are two brackets in men's wear ..High end or low end...
The trick behind this is...the linings inside the suits can let you know whether is high end or low end..the linings those are glued will be  cheaper then the hand made linings which says its a"hand made"lining.
High end suits generally are upto$5000 ...and low ends are anywhere from $100 to $1100 depending on the fabric...and its cuts and definitely the size!
Generally 95% of people buy ..low end suits and they sell like hot cakes during festive season..and hundred satisfied customers...ignoring the name brands..
The lower end suits ignores the designer brackets and labels but are made in same factories and under same manufacturer but under different label...the linings can be different though depending on the cost.
Why is it made in same place? 
Cuz most of the designer houses want people to buy their stuff and to people to fit in them as the percentage of buyers for low end suits are more then high end...
Everyone has an egos ...Designer will give a certain shape and cut to the coat But not everyone necessarily looks good in that style...A slim fit , A regular ,A sport jacket or even jersey style.
one that looks good on you will not certainly look good on your friend or relative.A good Physique ..and built is required too.
This year looking for suit ..some helpful tips...
1)Cloth: make sure its for the purpose..whether its a wedding,party or business pick a solid grey in worsted wool ..keep it classic ..less seems are more classy.

2)style:its practical to look for single breasted ...or two or three button  which looks dignified and presentable ignoring those four button dreadful rubbish stuff which looks weird after age of twenty .

3)Fit:Ignore Labels ..jus because its a brand doesn't mean you will looks good and it will fit you best ..try everything in your size.. one will be different from other ...the best will be which is comfortable and looks classy ..Style is confidence ..and confidence comes with comfort.

4)Alterations:If you are size between such as  long arms ,take a larger size and get it altered as per your need ..give it a custom fit an pay$100 extra for trousers length too and get the sleeve length right ..if you want to give an extra shape like the MAHON English cut..it can be done too which will make it look like suit that costed you $1000 which was actually jus for $200 :)
(Any store carrying men's wear has custom fitting)

We usually follow these tips   for men wear..its based on  Thomas Mahon who says all ,and gives wonderful tips which  has been very popular and his clients have been people like  "Prince of Whales and Brian Ferry"
,Savile Row Tailor 
This year looking for SUIT ..help yourself and follow your heart ...ignoring the rest :)

Herman,

Can you suggest some other outfit for men? Most parties I go to I wear a clean shirt and a clean ironed pant AND I am the best dressed male there......

Suggest some colors of shirts and pants and types....like polo shirt or other style..same with pants..I only wear Banana Republic..suggest some other

But I really really like your initiative to give some tips to men.

All said and done, the days of going to a tailor and getting it stitched is gone. All opt for ready made ones where a little alteration here and a little tucking there, and lo behold your suit is ready.
Hey this guy can be cast as the "young Mansoor Ali Pataudi" :-)
