Slim – This is ideal for those with a slimmer physique.
Tailored – This is a more comfortable look and has a option which allows more movement than a regular fit.
Fabric: Make sure you think about what fabric is best when picking a wedding suit. Wool, worsted or wool-blended suits are great quality. A linen suit keeps you cool and is highly breathable. If you’re on a budget cotton and polyester suits are both the best and have that smart look.
