It’s finally coming into event season, and with it, many occasions to suit up. But a suit is only as good as its fit. A regular on-screen personality, Hamish McLachlan is a man who is constantly in suits. We invited him into Country Road HQ where he met Head of Design - Men, Chris Vogelpoel to discuss fits. Here’s your guide on what to look for when it comes to fit.
A proper fit begins first with the shoulders. The seam of the shoulder should line up to your outer shoulder, with no overhang. Most men overestimate their jacket size, so try one smaller and see how you go.
The length of the arm should stop at the base of your hand where your thumb meets your wrist, showing a half inch of shirt . You should be able to cross your arms without feeling the fabric stretch across the back.
THE JACKET LENGTH
The length of the jacket should just cover the pockets of the pants. When your arms are by your side, the hem should graze your knuckles so that the jacket hem sits within your hand.
With the buttons done up, you should be able to slide your thumb in between your jacket and your shirt. If it feels snug, and without too much excess room, it’s a good fit.
Your pant should sit just above the shoe, so that there is a single crease, or break as it is technically known, in the fabric.
