That suit looks tight on you. Your suit looks like it’ll rip if you reach down to tie your shoelaces

6. Unsew the pockets. Most off the peg suits will have the pockets sewn "shut" for want of a better word and need in picking NOT getting a Buddy to rip them open at a wedding, seen this happen, didn't end well. I recently got a suit on EBay from the 1980's and the top pocket was still sewn shut... Use a proper picking tool.

I wish whoever decided these overly tight suits look good would politely expire. He mentions “drape” but nothing is draping when it looks like it’s cutting off the circulation.

"No belt" I would not recommend for Job, or interview purposes. That would fit better for an occasional type event.

De Roy your definition of what’s a “real man” is what makes humanity a piece of shit. go fuck yourself and your fragile masculinity. besides, there’s NOTHING wrong with women, why take them as a “bad” example? “critizicing like women”, what the hell is wrong with you? i would understand if you are 80 years old

The entire purpose of the side tabs are not to wear a belt and not have belt loops at all. Why do your trousers have both?
Film & TV (2 months ago)
Good clip. Ref the trouser tabs look versus the belt look, it's really up to the wearer, and of course you may only have belt loop trousers to choose from either in stock or for what you can afford, nonetheless it's a style that until recently didn't seem to be known that well/only known to those buying really expensive or bespoke suits (braces used to be like this too). To me the trouser tabs look is similar to wearing braces in lieu of a belt, it's an optional look, etc. I still think though that if it's comfortable enough (like in Winter, etc) that wearing a tie still helps to define the look and it makes you feel special. Of course if it's too hot (like in Summer) by all means remove it.

Length of sleeves and number of breaks are trends. A REAL sharp dresser knows what the rules are and breaks them. You can tell when a guy does it all "wrong" because he doesn't know any better. Compare that to the guy who does it "wrong" because that's how he likes it. Rules are for people who can't make up their own minds.

"Too many accessories" Tell that to your great grandfather, with his pocket watch, double Albert chain, detachable collar with gold pins, detachable cuffs, cufflinks, spats, waistcoat, striped shirt, bowler hat, cravat, cravat pin, spats and pince-nez. You have a very dull outlook on suits.
Me Me (2 months ago)
I don;t agree with you on the belt and accessories. Let me tackle this from two sides: function and art. From the argument of function, the belt loops are made for putting belt on. If you are correct, why does your pants have belt loops? Accessories, there is an accessory called lapel pin, WHat does it do? Wear it on the lapel. If you don;t wear accessories, your suit is going to be monotonous. Actually this statement shifts me to the artistic side. I am an artist, born an artist. I can;t tell you under what circumstances colors matches, color contradict. It is an intuition. But go back to the suit. The reason we wear belt, wrist watch, lapel pin is not to have the suit or you Look monotonous. That is the principle. But not over doing it of course. A large piece of fabric, solid color looks bad. That is why people made suit with fabric with patterns. But a large piece of fabric look monotonous also, That is why you wear a lapel pin, Draw people's attention to something else, make them forget Oh shit a large piece of black fabric, something like that. Sometime I wear a black blazer, I put on a gold lapel pin. The entire outfit look totally diffeernt. This is how people see you and your suit. If you look artistic, you look good, The belt server the same purpose, a bit of accessory will attract people to it. For suit, the basic is the quality of the fabric, you should start a topic on that. Always MTM. Suit has to be bespoke. Otherwise it doesn't fit. That is the rule. Keep your body shape.

My buddies have been asking me.. WHY ARE YOU BUYING SUIT JACKETS AND SLACKS FOR?? I tell them.. I’m turning 24 this year and it’s time I start dressing like a man. I’m fucking tired of t shirts and shorts all day everyday. I’m dedicated to 5 days a week wearing suit jacket with casual jeans and dress shoes and 2 days a week in shorts and t shirt. ILL BE DAMNED TO BE 30 years old walking around with a fucking t shirt and shorts 7 days a week. Don’t get me wrong nothing wrong with that but it’s simply not ME. The suit life/ casual formal is my true passion.

The belt argument is true and not true. That’s like saying you shouldn’t wear a watch with a suit because they were designed to be worn with a pocket watch. The times have changed and the style changes.

Tiituss -XG (4 months ago)
In my opinion, the no belt thing is bs, you look unprofessional and unfinished without a belt with trousers that have the loops to hold a belt , for a for a formal event such as a wedding or a formal dinner dance then use braces instead. Also, a huge mistake even you Josè are making in this video is having your collar going far too high above your blazer collar. Again, in my opinion, it is similar to how far above the cuff of your shirt your blazer sleeve should be. If your collar comes up too high above yohr blazer collar then it looks untidy and rushed even for the causual look your are wanting to achieve withwearing you suit the way your are in this video.

Phill Walker (4 months ago)
Am I the only one that thinks his jacket is to tight? When you button your jacket it's not supposed to pull. It should be smooth and sleek. Not looking like it's about to pull the threads out of your bottom!! Lol, but over all I give the video a C+ I just dont agree with the whole belt thing. If you hv loops, wear a belt. I personally prefer my pant or trousers to have side adjustments with no visible buttons. This gives it a smooth look. But it's all about what's appealing to your own personal taste.

One thing he forgot was the importance of getting your suit jacket tailored to your body. All these super loose fit suits take away from the classy look. It makes a person look like a bum wearing a suit for the first time

There’s so much wrong in this video. I work in a suit shop my self and even before I did I dressed up, even through out high school. So please allow me to help you all out by giving you legitimate suit do’s and don’t’s. 1 the belt: you should always have on a belt unless you chose the alternative to braces(suspenders). If you have on a tuxedo there should be no belt and only braces. 2: the pant length. This is varied amongst style of individuals. Many people prefer different lengths, if you look to go with a more modern look for with slight or no break, a more traditional look go with medium to long break. 3: accessories and necessities. When wearing a suit, unless to a casual or business casual setting you should have a tie. Adding a pocket square will add more flair to your outfit, however do not have an exact matching tie and pocket square. In my opinion yo. Can never go wrong with cuff links, they are a timeless classic along with a tie bar or a collar bar. 4:sleeve length. You should strive to always maintain about a fourths of an inch or shirt cuff showing. Anything more and it should be because you have raised your arm up. A plain cuff or French cuff shirt should have a quarter Inch showing in cuff. It is preference however anything more than that looks like the jacket is too small. 5: bold statements vs failed attire. Make sure when wearing a suit you should always try and go basic before you go bold. When going bold make sure you will match patterns and have items that compliment both each other and your body type. Failed fashion attempts are to bold of colors for an outfit or clashing colors of garments that simply don’t go together, or failing to properly match patterns. Also do not try to combine previous eras of fashion together very very rarely do people pull this off properly, such an example would be the fool in the video with a wide pointed lapel, a very classy and dapper look with a single button jacket, or a wide pointed lapel with a stitch pockets. Or even worse all three. 6:the right fit. Make sure that you get a suit that compliments your body type and shape. If yo are a slim guy don’t go with a traditional cut. However if you feel you are a slim guy and go slim fit make sure that you have arm room where needed. The fellow in the video has no bicep room at all when he moves and it looks sloppy and like a rookie mistake. 7: and this is just common sense. Never even button the bottom button of your suit jacket or sports coat/blazer jacket. If the item to have had more than 2 buttons it is acceptable to button again all but the final one. So if it has 3 buttons only do 2 of them without the bottom. However this rule does not apply to overcoats, which are used for warmth in the cold months over a suit or for casual wear with the proper attire. These are jus a few steps you can all take to look more dapper instead of foolish in your everyday lives.

kronos77 (4 months ago)
Belts were perhaps not necessary in the old days because people all wore their trousers high around the navel. Side adjusters only work if you wear the pants high. Suspenders same thing. Also, the suit jacket should be buttoned. They are not meant to be unbuttoned. So who cares if you have a belt.
reece butler (4 months ago)
That watch is gross and there is no brand name or anything on the face so the movement is probably low quality. Also the strap looks fake to me. But what do i know i only sell jewlery for a living. I suppose this is just fashion not quality of products

Some of us need belts
DiscoDashco (5 months ago)
Yes, here is another disagreement with the belt rule. Some gentlemen find themselves missing something if they were to remove their jacket - I am one of them. Moreover, it’s irrelevant if your coat is on and buttoned. As long as it is matching, and sleek and conservative in looks. i.e. no brown shoes with a black belt and vice versa. As for sleeves, his jacket does not look bad at all, however, I would not hem my sleeves that short. I believe he failed to mention that IF you’re going to hem them that short it’s usually for the sake of showcasing a pair of cuff links. I do agree with him on the length of your trousers; a half break is plenty fine.
