21 Unspoken Suit Rules Every Man Should Know

Wanna get dapper? Here’s how…

1. Wear an undershirt if you sweat a lot.

2. The pant hem should hit right at the top of your shoe for a more fashion-forward look.

3. Make sure your tie should just reach the waistband of your trousers or it should be slightly shorter.

4. Cover your pants zipper and butt a just long enough suit jacket.

5. Maker sure that your tie is darker than your dress shirt.

6. When sitting down, make sure that your socks are long enough so that there’s no exposed leg.

7. Look for a seam ripper or a small sharp pair of scissors when you get your suit home.


Remove the little embroidered label from the jacket’s left sleeve, remove the stitch of the jacket’s pockets and remove the tack stitches from the jacket’s vents. To ensure you don’t actually rip the fabric or neighboring threads, you must do this very carefully.

8. Exposed about half an inch of the sleeve cuffs.

9. Don’t hesitate to put on layers, a practical vest will do the look.

10. Use the size of your head when you go with classic windsor knot for your tie to determine whether you should go half or full windsor.


BIG HEAD = FULL KNOT. SMALL HEAD = HALF KNOT. Ask one of your male friends for an objective opinion if you’re not sure how your head size comparison.

11. For a stylish touch, the top button of a two-button suit (or the middle button of a three-button suit) should be above the navel or fall at it.

12. Do not sit down if the suit is buttoned or else you’re at risk of ruining it.

13. You’ll have a room to move if you are able to slip your hand between your chest and your buttoned jacket.

14. Keeps your dress pants from falling off the hanger with the Savile Row Fold.

15. Select for a double-button and notched lapel jacket if you’re going for more formal business attire.

16. Select for a single-button peak-lapel jacket for a more trendy casual look.

17. Unless you’re attending a funeral, you can select for a gray or charcoal suit over black.

18. Using this illustration, match your shoes to the color of your suit.

19. Your belt should be the same color as your shoes and fairly thin.

20. Thin lapels are more modern while wide lapels are more old-school.

21. Furthermore, go for a dimple!


The dimple gives a slightly disheveled yet polished appearance to your finished look with its little hollow beneath the knot of your tie. Check out this handy guide on nailing the tie dimple.
