Tailors have been making suits for men for centuries and the modern lounge suit was originally fashioned in the seventeenth century. This was the time when suits for men became less extravagant moved away from the bejewelled creations that high society men wore at the time. Suits for men became more like the modern lounge suit as men sort out something that was more comfortable.
On men’s suit English suits often have two vents, minimal shoulder padding and a slight tapper on the sides. This compares with an Italian suits which has more of a V shape cut and much more padding in the shoulders. More casual than the above two is the American suit which traditionally only has one vent. However suits come in all sizes and shapes today and are worn for many different types of occasions which call for different cuts and fabrics.
