Should You Choose a Slim Fit or Regular Fit?

There are a lot of questions to consider when you visit the tailor. One of these is whether you’re going to choose a slim fit or a regular fit suit.

What’s the difference between slim fit and regular fit?

Both of these types of fit refer to the way your suit is cut and how closely it fits on your body. Slim fit clothes have been in fashion in recent years, and many high street suits are designed this way. However, many people prefer the comfort and look of regular fit. 

So what’s the difference? Slim fit suits are designed to sit much closer to the body and are cut with a lot less ease in the fabric. Regular fit are designed to be less close fitting and to have a more relaxed, looser fit.

Why choose slim fit?

You may want to opt for slim fit tailoring if…

  • You want to flatter a leaner figure
  • You want a contemporary look
  • You want your suit to have a very distinct silhouette
  • You want your suit to look good with narrower shoulders

Why choose regular fit?

You may want to opt for regular fit tailoring if…

  • You want a more classic design of suit
  • You want comfort to be a priority
  • You want to prioritise ease of movement
  • You want to flatter a larger frame

Which one is right for you?

There are no hard and fast rules about which type of fit is ideal for you; it’s all a matter of personal taste and opinion. 

The great thing about working with an experienced bespoke tailor is that they’ll be able to advise you on what kind of fit is likely to be most appropriate for your figure, event and fabric choice.
