Men’s Party Wear

We think of parties as generally fun social events and commonly we get invitations a couple of times during the year. It’s the norm to expect a dozen or more parties within the year, especially during peak seasons and holidays – birthday parties, batch parties, acquaintance parties, office parties, reunion parties, etc.

One of the most important things to look at is of course, the attire. “What should I wear?” is the inevitable question that every party-goer should decide,

Whether you’re a VIP or not, the dressing up part should be in no way messed up.

First, you should know exactly what kind of attire is required for the event. You usually find this important detail in your invitation. Formal events rarely miss this out. In some occasions that is not indicated otherwise, it is best to call up the organizer and confirm the attire. Your attire should be appropriate for the kind of party you’re attending.

In most parties, suits are standard for men. But not all suits are the same. Rather, not just any suit can be worn on every party. Dinner jackets and tuxedos are obviously not the same. Ultra-formal events definitely require a different suit than the casual ones.

When wearing a suit, make sure it’s the right fit – not too loose but not too tight either. It looks best that way. Otherwise, you will need to have a great deal of confidence to pull it off and it’s not about the brand, the color, or even the price.

Here’s a tip to avoid the unnecessary inconvenience. Prepare ahead of time, even if you had your suit tucked in your wardrobe. This is of course very practical if you don’t have one and you’re planning to either borrow or rent one. The bottom line is, you have to try it out in advance to make sure the suit fits you well – from the neck, shoulders, chest, and waist. Check also the sleeves and inseam.

Your sleeves’ length is one of the obvious signs of badly tailored suit. For the right fit, it should reach your wrist just below the base of your thumbs. If you have a larger waistline, wearing pleats with your trousers is recommended. It gives the illusion of a slimmer body. The end of your trousers should reach the shoes, again not too short but not to long either. Cuffs can make you look taller.

The same applies if you already own one. You may not be aware if you have grown or decrease in size and knowing this early on would give you time to have it repaired. If you’re renting out, scouting for the best fitting suit may not be easy and you might need to visit several shops to find the perfect fit.

A wrongly fitted suit will not go unnoticed from the eyes of other party-goers.

And don’t forget to wear quality. Whether you decide to buy or just rent one for the night, always choose a quality suit. The fabric’s quality is often indicated through numbers. Super 100 is by far the most popular. They’re not very heavy when worn, and they don’t easily wrinkle. For night parties, worsted wool fabric is good choice.
