Our classic fit jackets are traditional and timeless. Roomy and comfortable, this style transcends trends and fashion, remaining the right choice for any occasion.
Sleeves on your suit jackets and blazers should always fall between a quarter inch and three-quarters of an inch above your shirt sleeves. Anything longer, will take away from the polished look of a classic fit.
The classic fit suit jacket is cut generously for a comfortable yet elegant fit across the shoulders, chest and torso. Although roomy, be sure the jacket is not too large. Shoulder seam should meet the sleeve of the suit right where your arm meets your shoulder and the jacket should close without pulling.
The classic fit jacket length is slightly longer than the tailored jacket and the lapel is standard width.
A tailored fit jacket will follow the natural flow of your body without being too snug or too loose. Trying on your jacket, look for a good fit while in your natural stance. A proper fit is shaped from the neck to the chest and shoulders to drape without wrinkles from tension. This allows the jacket to move freely with your body.
A well-fitted shoulder lies flat and the shoulder seam should meet the sleeve of the suit right where your arm meets your shoulder. The button should close easily without pulling and the two sides should meet neatly without flaring or hanging forward off your body.
Your jacket sleeve should rest just above the large bone in the wrist and at least a small band of the shirt cuff should always be visible.
The tailored fit jacket is slightly shorter than the classic fit. This smart look is perfect with the slimmer suit style. It gives you an overall clean, contemporary, and streamlined look.
