Is it me, or is the suit he's wearing too big in the shoulders? Aside from that, he gives solid advice.

If you're a young man who can only afford one suit get a charcoal gray pinstripe. Then get three ties for it: Black for funerals, maroon for job interviews, and pink for weddings/parties.

Hmm, how to not look stupid wearing a suit, step 1: Never, never, never listen to the advise of someone who leaves more than one button of his shirt undone. Step 2: Never listen to the advise on suits from someone not wearing a tie.

THERE WAS a time in my life that I could ACTUALLY buy a suit off the rack and it fit me like it was made for me. But then I was probably the perfect weight. Age changes everything. I am of the old fashion thought a suit should be tailored, not TIGHT and the pants just at the shoe laces and no more than 1/4 inch of your shirt cuff showing. I hate what they are wearing today. Most times they look like they got caught in the car wash. NO ONE is slim like a pencil,that's silly. A two button suit is proper.....not 4 and for gods sake don't button them ALL. It drives me crazy to see pants SO LONG they're all bunched up atop your shoes.They look like they may have belonged to someone else at one time. You don't need to dress to IMPRESS but just wearing proper fitting clothes says it all,even in jeans.

I watched this after buying a couple of new suit jackets for the first time. Something so simple as removing tack stitching from the back vents was something I didn't notice. Glad I watched this before wearing. Thanks Antonio!

What really angers me is that suit retailers want to charge huge extra amounts for tailoring a men's suit to fit. Its not just the high-end department store junk Im talking about either. In the past that was a standard practice. Retailers wanted their customers to look great when they left their shoppe. Now all retailers have gotten so damn cheap. Do they not realize that if that suit doesn't fit me properly then it's their name that's going to suffer when people ask me where I got that burlap bag of a suit? That's part of the deal, every suit sold is to be tailored to fit the buyer. That is what buying a suit is all about. I'm so sick and tired of mass produced garbage. Very few people are going to be able to wear a suit straight off the rack and that is assuming the pant hem is finished. If that's all your making then, GET OUT OF THE BUSINESS. Make pull-over T-shirts, NOT MENS SUITS. I'm not going to pay for any suit and then spend an extra hundred or one fifty to have it hemmed, sleeves adjusted, cuffs, waistband taken in/out and/or suit body taken in/out. Everyone knows that off the rack suits are just a general fit garment that MUST be fitted. Despicable!

Never put much thought into this and I'm guilty of (or would be) of a lot of those mistakes! Put together mix match sets, forgot to take the tach stitching off the vents, and didn't get the fit perfect! I really liked the way you presented these tips. It's clear that you know a thing or two about what you're doing and it's very motivational!

Hey antonio, great videos! I follow all your advise on suits and now for the first time i got invited for a black tie preferred event. Can i use my navy suit with a black bow tie? Thanks.

I could add 10 more to that, especially for millennials. J Crew Is not Bespoke and neither are the supposed Artisan tailors popping up everywhere. I like you comment about shoe care. With a suit or jeans, you shoes should NEVER look shabby.

The advice about practicing wearing the suit is spot on. I have a friend who has a terrific build for suits but he doesn’t like calling attention to himself so he feels awkward in them and since he doesn’t wear it often he feels uncomfortable. I admit i have a less overall fit for a suit but i break them in. I get used to them for how I’ll walk, stand, sit, pose, dance, etc. plus i just like that i stand out and people take notice.

I prefer a classic conservative style of suit, fabric and colour, because you can always jazz it up with a good tie and pocket square. It's easier to change up your look with a well fitted versatile plain navy suit than it is with a loud fashion suit.
Malgremor (2 months ago)
When you donate a suit to Goodwill or Salvation Army, they almost always separate the jackets from the pants & sell them separately...to whom? They'd make more sales if they left them together. It's frustrating because otherwise I get a lot of great things at thrift stores, things that I otherwise could not have afforded.

hey Antonio! I've been watching your content on and off since i was a freshman in highschool in 2012, but it wasnt until maybe a year ago that i went into my senior year of college that all of your knowledge and expertise really became applicable to my daily life. I wanted to say that I'm really thankful for having stumbled on your videos all those years ago. I hope you keep putting out all this great content and that you're successful in all your ventures!

I'm just checking this as I head out the door. Judging by the thumbnail, I would say the fashion faux pas in it is wearing cuff links with no tie. It's like taking two elements: business and casual and putting them together and yet somehow failing to make it business casual. But that's just my thoughts.

When I was young, sport coat and slacks were the order of the day as it was all that I could afford. I could get away with wearing the same sports coat two or three times a week. All was well in the world until the day that my employer told me to buy the uniform of business. To buy a suit. I was told that if I was going to represent my company to serious people I need to look serious as well and that a sports coat and slacks were not going to cut it.

I lost a good amount of weight which resulted in going down a suit size. However, I don't have the money to buy a new suit. The tailor said the shoulders can't be taken in. Is there a way to make the suit fit me without having to buy a new one or am I just going to have to live with it until I can afford a new one?

I know you are a Veteran (thank you from one Vet to another) have you ever thought of doing a transitioning tutorial for those leaving the service. I reside near Ft.Bragg, NC. and I’m involved with many of the military and contractors. One of the hardest lessons for so many military (all branches) is understanding how to enter into the civilian realm with an emphasis on style. I have seen many a nightmare, from bright yellow suits to garrison cut trousers. We are talking about a great group of individuals and I would like to see the best for them.

There's always someone in their 20s who ask me about suits. It's cute that they're beginning to pay attention, but I normally tell them to go ask their mother. But if they're humble types who won't get cocky from it, then I direct them to your channel. The things I would add onto your list would generally be how to wear it and move in it. There are too many people who do see it as a costume and not their own clothing. There are ways to move in it and there are ways to put it on. Example, there are ways to properly put on the jacket. I've seen people do weird kungfu arm actions while putting on a jacket and it stretches everything. I don't mansplain to anyone on how to put on a jacket. I normally keep that to myself. But I do take notice. I wish they would roll on their jacket. There are ways to take it off as well. Some people need to remember to unbutton when sitting and button when standing. But yes, a video on how to properly wear it and maybe basic table manners would be great as well. People dress nice but if they don't act right, it ruins it all. Table manners and general etiquette helps.

This is a good guideline for people who want to learn more about suits and making suit purchases. Having a fit suit is definitely key since an expensive suit can still look bad if it looks too baggy on the wearer.

I decided to add this: When buying a quality suit, they will usually come with a small square of fabric made from the suit with a button on it. A lot of people think it's for mending a tear and a spare button. That's not its real purpose. Its real purpose is so the dry cleaner can test the chemicals they are going to use to clean it to make sure it doesn't damage the fabric, stitching, or buttons. Funny random fact that just seemed fitting in a video like this. Just another sign of quality.

Regarding suit cloth I would recommend you do not go above Super120 for an everyday wear suit. The finer grade cloths feel and look great as they often have cashmere woven into them but they do not stand up to heavy wear. But my top tip to get decent wear out of a suit is ALWAYS buy two pairs of pants at the time of purchase.

Mr. Centeno, I just want to thank you so much for what you have done for me this past year. I was dressing like a slob but I came across one of your videos one day and I got hooked! I started slow by going to value village and buying some jackets there and I became the best looking guy at my school. Girls started talking to me more and I'm a bigger guy, 230 pounds 5'9", so that doesn't happen to me a lot. I found my current girlfriend that way and she loves it when I dress up. You have really changed my perspective on men's fashion and how to send a message. From up here in Canada, thank you!

I think that it's because of the fact that Antonio didn't try to sell something for once and really just gave good advice on how to buy a great suit. He should though, recomennd more quality stuff, like the tailor store, I bought 3 shirts there and a suit. Great store!
Istarax (3 months ago)
Real Men Real Style. Hey Antonio! It's great seeing the quality of your videos improve. In this video however, the two different cameras / angles don't quite match. At first I thought you switched between a navy and a gray suit, but it was just poor color correction. Tell your editor to be more attentive! :)
