The Perfect Tailored Jacket
A tailored jacket, much like a tailored shirt, should be a staple in every man’s wardrobe. Dress it down for a night out with a pair of jeans or chinos, or dress it up for a more formal event with a matching pair of trousers.
Below you can find a small selection of tailored jackets from our collection. At Edit Suits Co. we offer several different brands of fabric, in numerous colours and patterns, in order to help you design the ideal jacket: completely customised to your personal style, size, and shape. We can help to take all the stress out of finding the perfect tailored jacket by assisting you in the creation of your own.
We know that finding a jacket that fits properly can be hard. Most often, it’s the shoulders that causes problems. Here are some helpful tips:
The shoulder pad should extend beyond the shoulder bone just enough, to make the sleeve fall straight down. If it is any wider, the jacket will look too boxy.
The shoulder slope of the jacket should be in line with your shoulder slope. This helps to avoid creasing behind the neck (in case of squared shoulders) or creasing below the armhole (in case of sloped shoulders).
The jacket shoulder forward/backward angle should be in line with your shoulder forward/backwards position to avoid creasing below the neck (in the case of forward shoulder position) or a flaring lapel (in the case of backwards shoulder position).
Once you have a shoulder that fits, consider:
The sleeve should end just below the wrist bone, which will allow 1-2 centimeters of shirt cuff to show.
The jacket length should roughly end at the bottom of the fly of your trousers. For a more classic look, the length can extend one inch past your fly whereas for a more sporty look, opt for a jacket that is one inch shorter in length.
The Benefits of Tailor-Made Jackets
By collaborating with Edit Suits Co., you’ll be able to create something that not only fits you, but is you. We give you the power to personalise your jacket down to the smallest detail.
You’ll have a choice of lining, from something classic like a plain grey, to one that is much more unique, such as a paisley pattern. You’ll even be able to add small, extra touches by choosing the buttons and the color of the buttonholes. For a particularly special jacket, you can opt to have a date or your initials monogrammed inside.
Made to Measure vs. Off-the-Rack
In order for a jacket to really fit, you need to consider the shoulder, chest, waist, sleeves, and the length. Clearly then, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll find one that fits straight off-the-rack. You’ll always end up sacrificing fit in one area for fit in another. But even a jacket that fits in those areas isn’t guaranteed to fit your personal style.
We also offer different canvasing options, including half-canvas, full-canvas, and fusible canvas. Additionally, you can customise the lapel, vents, and pockets, and specify how fitted the jacket should be, and whether it’s single or double-breasted.
