How to Choose a Men’s Jacket

Yes. We, men, do not have as many choices as women in terms of dressing. Then they made us wear fancy ties, various folders… when we found nothing to what we wear, we borrowed the feminine style. But if anything puts us into focus, men, this is the dress jacket.

What Collar Choose?

All collars are not suitable for all occasions, an update is required:

  • The classic lapel collar

Well now, this is the one we see everywhere, the most banal. Without being original, it fits almost any occasion.

  • The peak neck

Otherwise known as “Tony Montana” (no, that’s not true), that’s what we call in drafting a “Mr. neck.”

  • The shawl collar

This is the neck of most dresses jackets (also called “ceremony collar“) but also… dressing gowns. So no room for error if taken: it favors a model of curved jacket.

Is it the right size?

To find out if a jacket is the right size, here are some criteria to keep in mind:

Shoulders When you put on a jacket in the store, the seller can put his hand on the top of your arm. This is not the first step before more privacy, but a benchmark to see if the jacket fits you.

Basically, if your shoulder bulges at the beginning of your sleeve, your jacket is too small. Conversely, if your shoulder does not touch the top of the jacket, it means that you swim in it, it is too large.

Length: the jacket is not a jacket. It is not an either dress. It must be neither too short nor too long. In general, it must fall to about half-buttocks. Anyway, we realize that it is too long when you have more class the hand in the pocket.

Sleeves: We will not bother you with centimeters business, then do simple: we must see your shirt cuffs exceed. Neither too (like the right sleeve of François Hollande) or not enough (as the left sleeve of Francois Hollande).

The Number of Buttons

We talk enough and we regret that this has not been debated during the presidential campaign:

The most timeless model is one to two buttons. In this case, it is boutonnera that the top one. The bottom button should remain open. This tradition dates from the king of the United Kingdom Edward VII.

Edward VII had eaten too much at a meal organized with his subjects and some guests. Not containing the last button of his jacket, everyone followed suit.

If you prefer a jacket with three buttons, the middle will be the only imperative to close. You have the option to leave the top button open or not and the obligation to leave the last quiet (which has done nothing to you).

The more likely it is certainly in a button. It elongates the silhouette and brings you the class of a Barack Obama… who wears two-button jacket, you know. But everyone does not have the class to act as if he was wearing a jacket with a button.

The Colour

You really need advice? As you wish… but we say that because we know that you are not crazy. So you do not tablerez on yellow, magenta or green firecracker.

Bet on gray or navy blue, two very effective possibilities. Black is also a safe bet, but a priori everyone has a black jacket, try to differentiate yourself. You can also bet on other colors but they vary so much according to the times we do not want you to take unnecessary risks.
