Alright tweekers we’ve all been MIA for a while. We apologize for that, but we’re all slowly getting back into the groove of things so expect some amazing posts in the coming weeks.
This post is long over due, and frankly I couldn’t be more dipleased with myself for not posting about this subject sooner. This post is all about suits! If I’ve learned anything during my Netflix marathons of How I Met Your Mother, it’s that every man should own a suit.
The most important men in history have sported suits. Barrack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Mr. Magoo, and also Pee Wee Herman. Without a good suit you do not exist. Suits are everything and if you don’t own at least one, kill yourself. Just Kidding. Don’t do that. I may be held responsible for involuntary manslaughter.
Anyways, I’m going to keep it short and simple and highlight certain points from a GQ post that I read a while ago.
The Cheat Sheet
• A suit’s gotta fit right or it isn’t worth wearing.
• In order to make sure that it does fit right, find yourself a good tailor.
• You’ll never go wrong wearing at two-button suit with a fairly narrow lapel. It’s both classic and completely modern.
• Flat-front, relatively trim pants; very little break at the ankle.
• You should be able to easily cup your hands beneath the hem of the jacket; if you can’t, it’s too long.
• Show some cuff. It’s the mark of a (well-dressed) gentleman.
• Dress with the season—cotton suits in summer; tweeds, flannels, and corduroys in winter.
• If you’re going to wear a patterned suit, keep the patterns subtle. You want a smart suit, not a kooky one.
• If you ever can afford to get a bespoke suit, get one made. It’s worth every penny.

And as our fellow brother Barney Stinson would say. Suit up tweekers!
That is all.
