Are You How I Met Your Mother Fans? Just Love how BARNEY STINSON SUIT UP?
This article will show you more than that!!


Barney Stinson is one of the central characters of How I Met Your Mother and known for his love for suits. Suit Up! is a phrase regularly spoken by Barney Stinson. He further emphasises his policy of “Suit Up” by going to every possible occasion for wearing a suit. “Suit Up because tonight will be Legendary” is easy said but not complete without a perfect suit. Today we have compiled an infographic of how to suit right. The infographic details the exact lengths and common problems you can encounter with a suit.

Suit Up Tip 1: Shoulder Fit

Be sure to check that the shoulder pads on your suit of choice are not sticking out before a purchase. How can you do that? Put on your suit jacket and go lean against the wall. If your shoulder area gets scrunched up, your shoulder pads are sticking out too far and you could do with a better fit around your shoulders.


Suit Up Tip 2: Double-Button

If you are planning to own just one suit, go for a double-button jacket. Why? It is business appropriate, AND no one would raise an eyebrow if you wore it to a more casual setting as well. If you intend to have suits for different occasions, then a double-button suit should already be in your arsenal but for casual occasions, get a single-button suit jacket as well to look more trendy.


Suit Up Tip 3: Expose The Cuffs

This is now common practice. Older generations of men tend to hide the cuffs of their dress shirts under their suit jackets but for the modern man, about half an inch of your dress shirt should be sticking out past your suit jacket sleeve.

Suit Up Tip 4: Jacket Length

Make sure the length of the jacket at least covers your pant zippers and butt. Anything less and you can consider your jacket too short.

Suit Up Tip 5: Pant Style

The days of pleated pants that bulge around your hips is long gone – go for straight cut pants. The hem of your pants should be no higher than the top of your shoes (with no socks showing while standing) and no lower than the top of your laces (slight scrunching at the bottom while standing). A corollary of this is wearing LONG socks under your pants so that you do not show off skin when seated.

So Just SUIT UP!!
