How To Tell if a Suit Fits - Observe These 7 Simple Points


A great suit doesn't look so great if it doesn't fit.

You may not be an expert tailor, but you don't need any special skills to know if a suit fits perfectly. All you need is your hands and a mirror. You can measure each part of the jacket and pants just by eyeballing where they fall and by using a few tricks with your hands.
Esquire lays out seven ways you can check:

1. Shoulder pads end with your shoulders.
2. Your flat hand should slip easily into your suit under the lapels when the top (or middle) button is fastened. If you put a fist in, the suit should pull at the button.
3. The top button of a two-button suit — or the middle button of a three-button suit — should not fall below your navel.
4. With your arms at your sides, your knuckles should be even with the bottom of your jacket.
5. Jacket sleeves should fall where the base of your thumb meets your wrist.
6. Between a quarter and a half inch of shirt cuff should be visible.
7. One inch of break.
