What makes a good suit a great one? The right fit.

Slim, tailored and regular fit suits all have different defining features. Knowing which fit is best for you is the easiest way to look and feel your best in your suit. So, here it is: your need-to-know on our fits.

SLIM FIT

Slim is our narrowest fit, precisely cut for a pin-sharp silhouette. It’s snug through the shoulders, chest, arms and thighs. The jacket and waistcoat are fitted through the waist while trousers are neat through the seat and taper towards the ankle to skim the top of your shoe.

If you’re buying a slim fit suit or jacket for the first time, you might find going up a size more comfortable.

Worth noting: our skinny fit is becoming our slim fit. They’re cut on the same block so the fit is identical, but you might see either fit name used while we make the transition.

Slim fit brands include Moss London, DKNY and French Connection.

TAILORED FIT

Our tailored fit offers a well-balanced fit that sticks to the core rules of tailoring. It’s cut to define your shoulders, chest, arms and thighs but leave enough room to move with ease. The jacket and waistcoat are tapered through the waist while the trousers are defined through the seat with a tapered leg that sits on top of your shoe.

REGULAR FIT

Looking for more room and an easy fit? Our regular fit suits are cut in line with traditional British tailoring with a broader fit through the shoulders and straight arms and legs. The jacket and waistcoat are lightly shaped through the waist while trousers are fuller through the seat and thigh and hang smoothly to break on your shoe.

Choose Moss Esq., Savoy Taylors Guild and some Ermenegildo Zegna Cloth suits for a regular fit.
