Trends in men's clothing havechanged over last few years. While fashion used to be an afterthought for ourfathers, guys now are aware of their dressing sense. They are spending moremoney and more time on what's in their closet than some of their girlfriends.Image is everything and a properly dressed man instantly receives respect inthe business world. Nothing screams respect more than a suit.


When it comes to finding the perfectsuit, you need to look beyond the style of it and more into its fabric.Different fabrics will determine how well the suit will hold up, feel, andlook. Knowing a little bit about the different types of fabrics can give youwith a better understanding about which one to choose from. Here are some ofthe more common fabrics used for men's suits.




Linen - Sure lines is nice in its ownway. It is a lightweight material and a little different from everyone else butthat doesn't mean you should run out and buy a suit made from it. The problemwith linen is that it wrinkles quickly, stains easily, and it looks out ofdate. A suit made from linen is not a good choice.

Polyester - Ok. Look the 70's are over andthat means any style from that era should be thrown out and ignored just likedisco was. That includes all your Polyester clothes, including your suits. Thereason being that it's made from all sorts of chemicals and just not natural.You can get away with it if it's blended into wool only to not pay as much fora suit but that's about the only reason.


Microfiber - No. Absolutely no. Do not wearany suit made from microfiber unless it's for a Halloween costume.


Teflon - Stay as far away from Teflon asyou would with microfiber. You're wearing a suit not a frying pan.




Tweed - Tweed is a very heavy woolfabric, popular in areas where it gets pretty cold. Yes, that was a joke. Itcan be kind of old fashioned as well. You'll notice a lot of fathers andgrandfathers sport some pretty spiffy tweed suits. If you've noticed that youhave put on the pounds recently and are showing it, steer clear of a suit madefrom tweed. It'll only make you look fatter.


Flannel - Flannel suits are made fromcorded wools and are pretty heavy too. A suit made from flannel is known to bedurable, very hard-wearing, and especially nice in a charcoal gray with classicpinstripes but you'll also look like you'll be wearing your long flannelunderwear to a formal event. Flannel makes a nice fabric for items such aspajamas but as for suits go, not so much.


Tropical - The type of wool crepe is alightweight and light-colored fabric. Because it is a lighter fabric, tropicalis more prone to wrinkle than any other fabric on this list. It really doesn'tmake a great material for a first starter suit.


Worsted - Now for the crme de crme. Youcannot go wrong with buying a suit made from a Worsted fabric such asgabardines or mid-weight corded wools. It is durable, hard-wearing, and greatfor wearing throughout the year. Be sure to ask for a Worsted wool suit byname.
