As brides fuss over their wedding gowns, grooms also need to take the time and effort of getting the perfect suit. While some people think that suits all look the same, in reality, suits can have a variety of details that work with different kinds of events, face shapes, body types, and personalities.

To help your groom decide on the suit that fits him best, we list down the basic parts of a suit.


The Jacket

The groom can express much of his personality through his choice of jacket. There are different jacket styles that depend on the formality of the affair.

Single-breasted
This classic jacket has a single column of buttons along the front panel. It has a slimming effect, which is perfect for petite grooms who wish to appear taller and leaner.

Double-breasted
This jacket style is usually worn at indoor formal weddings. It has overlapping front panels that feature two parallel columns of buttons. It is worn closed, without a vest or cummerbund.

Lapels

The lapel is a part of the jacket that frames the chest area.
