As with buying quality dress shoes, getting the right fit is paramount when you need to buy a suit. These interactive graphics take the mystery out of buying a suit that fits, whether you're looking for a single-breasted, double-breasted, or three-piece suit.

You may observe that I don't write too much. Let pictures do the talking. Enjoy!

Ever wondered why a suit looked so good on the mannequin or model, yet you're still not as sharp? I got you, GQ style. kiss

Most important tip 1 ~ The shoulders must fit perfectly.

Fit at the shoulder is the most important part of the jacket. If the shoulder fits correctly, the rest of the jacket can be altered quite easily to fit your own individual body shape. If the shoulder is too small, it will make your head look huge; while if the shoulder is too big, it will make your head look tiny.

This suit has a variety of issues. So, let’s address these issues.

First, what is a collar gap?

A “collar gap” is a gap between your jacket’s lapels and your shirt’s collar. It’s bad. You want the line of your blazer/suit’s neck to follow the line of your shirt collar around your neck. When it doesn’t, you get a gap. A gap is particularly bad in the back of the neck. where the collar of the jacket should be in contact with your shirt collar, and naturally sit about half an inch below the top of the collar.

Picture 2: A better fit. You can see how a jacket should relate to a shirt.

Even with what looks like it may be a button-down collar, the jacket follows the lines of the shirt. It fits snugly around the neck, hugging the curve around the neck and down into the chest. There’s also a bit of shirt visible at the back of the neck. The shirt collar and jacket lapel are in contact all the way around his neck.

You like, don't you?

When pairing ties with your suit, the width of your tie should correspond to the notch lapel.

If the button is low on your suit, it can make your torso appear longer and also show off your shirt and tie better.

Don't button the bottom button of your suit.

How to buy a tie - Length Matters...

Whether you're six feet four or five feet six, the tip of the tie should hit right at your beltline — not three inches below it, not two inches above it. That is, unless you're doing the whole short-suit thing. And then, yes, let the tie hang tight above the navel.

The pants length is too long.

The width of the lapel should be in proportion with your head size and body type.

A narrow lapel is generally only suited for people who are very skinny whereas they would look ridiculous on someone who has a wider body.
