If you read this guide, you probably already know that a jacket that can be worn casual is surely not the same as a suit Jacket: length, the proportion, the cut and style (buttons, lapel) are different. We will therefore deal with these differences, but first talk about the main criteria of choice.
They are valid for all jackets, formal or casual, with a few minor variations.
The proportions: The width of the shoulders
There is not really mystery on the seams of the shoulders, they must just be the break of your shoulders, where you have an os you can feel.
It is very important to superimpose the jacket seam and crack on the shoulder! Not worth to take wider shoulders to seem bigger, in terms of proportions that will get him necessarily.
If you take too little, you’ll be also very narrow and you seem to have a huge head.
The neck should arise on your neck: there must not be empty space between the two. This is even more true when you wear a shirt: the collar will land on the shirt, while leaving about 2 cm.
If the neck of the jacket completely covers the shirt, it is slightly too large or out of adjustment. It already happened to me to edit specifically the neck of some of my jackets.
Never let out the collar of the shirt, even if you saw in Scarface: it’s very vulgar.
The lapels of the down jacket must first highlight your torso and they must be proportionate, according to Jacketpanel. If they are too short, like on jackets with three or four buttons, the jacket will give the impression that you have a slender and straight, torso and not in V. : In addition to give a style of notary.
Is not that it is too long, as this can be the case on 1-button jackets where the button is placed inordinately low. The bend will be too low, too feminine, and it will be much too casual.
The ideal is a jacket two buttons, with the first button about ten centimeters above the navel. The setback will have a perfectly adjusted length.
The width of the lapels:
In a formal setting, it must be proportional to your shoulders, the width of the collar of your shirt and the width of your tie.
If you’re skinny, so avoid huge setbacks, except in a more relaxed setting.
A casual with a cardigan and t-shirt look. Lots of personality with chinos for a fairly bright orange, reinforced by the somewhat disproportionate width of the lapels.
The General length
In a formal setting, the jacket must happen to you in the hollow of the fingers when you have outstretched arms.
In a more casual way, it more go further back, to the hips but not more.
Wear a suit jacket too small will give to many creases and an effeminate and puffy look. To ensure you do not take a too small jacket, close the first button and check that there is only a slight tension to the side.
You normally spend an fist between your torso and the jacket if it is the right size.
A jacket that falls well doesn’t 47 folds, only a slight at the level of the first button that shows it fits battery properly. If it’s been a huge star or setbacks to dish, it’s too small.
Here, this casual Jacket closed by the button on the top wrinkles a lot: it’s too tight at the bust and probably also at the level of the arms.
That’s the danger of casual jackets: take them too short and too tight.
The length of the sleeves
Two factors are to be taken into account on the sleeves.
First their length: they must leave exceed about 1 cm of the sleeve of the shirt, just to make the standard reminder.
Attention also to the width: the sleeves must adjust to your arm: therefore do not take too broad nor too tight. Too wide and you will have hanging sleeves of painter, too tight and you’ll arms of little girls, in addition to being uncomfortable.
For the formal, we’ll take the same color as the jacket buttons, this isn’t really where it allows to most fantasies. Maximum two or three buttons.
For the casual, we can innovate with buttons of wood, bone or other original material. Provided that the contrast with the jacket works.
No secrets, it’s a basic you’re often going to wear, so the color should be very versatile: Navy Blue and charcoal gray are preferred.
We can also take more colors for the casual, which color will be mitigated by parts to the more sober shades.
