Purchasing large men’s suits can sometimes be a little overwhelming and even difficult since not all suit makers make suits specifically for larger men. Though it may be difficult for some men to be able to purchase a suit off the rack, the reality is most men will need some degree of tailoring carried out to make a suit fit perfectly for their body. While a suit maker can make suits for a large man’s frame, this does not mean it will fit perfectly for his specific body type. It can be helpful to consider this when purchasing a suit from any maker.

Though some men have the luxury of hiring a tailor to make their suits, this service can cost hundreds of dollars and could even cost in the thousands, depending on the tailor and the materials being used. Most men cannot afford to have a tailor make them a suit every time they need one. It can be helpful for larger men to shop with clothing companies that cater to the bigger man. This will allow them to be able to choose their correct size and if needed, have a tailor further customize the suit to fit perfectly.


These tips can assist larger men in finding the right suit for their needs:

It is imperative a man knows his correct measurements before he purchases a suit. It is important to know the correct measurements because most standard, off the rack suits, will have what is called a drop. A drop means the suit jacket will generally measure six inches wider than the pants. Larger men may need to purchase their pants separately to account for the size difference.

When purchasing a suit, it is important to check the seams. One of the most important seams is located from the neck to the sleeve. This seam runs across the shoulder and can sometimes pucker up in a larger suit. Ideally, the suit should be tried on to ensure this puckering and wrinkling does not occur. This particular seam can make a man look sloppy instead of polished.

By purchasing skopes wool suits in the correct sizes and then having them tailored for an even better fit, larger men can always look their best in any suit they purchase. With these helpful tips, a man can be sure he is purchasing the right fit.
