It is crucial to choose the right fabrics when buying a suit. Suits are a way to show off your personal style and sophistication.

It is important to choose a suit that has a superior fit and luxurious feel, but also the fabric it was made from. It is important to understand what you are getting when buying a suit. This could save you thousands or hundreds of dollars in the end.

How to Buy a Suit

Only a few fabrics are suitable for suiting. This makes it easier to choose the right one.

  • Fabric Breathability

The sweaty-back is the enemy in summer. Old man winter comes in, and suddenly the casual walk to work becomes a run. This is due to sheer determination to stay warm during the chilling cold.

  • Fabric softness

Another factor is fabric softness. Itchy suit pants are not something you want to be angry about. You might feel trapped and restricted by a tight jacket made of too much starch.

  • Variety of patterns

Education in suit fabrics is the solution for most men. Let cloth and thread count awareness guide you in your pursuit of the sartorial career.


Because of its versatility and refined look, wool is the most preferred fabric for men. Wool is a natural fabric, meaning it can breathe well and can be worn in both the heat and the cool. Although wool is wrinkle-free and soft, it is often criticized by people who prefer lighter fabrics. There are many types of wool, including tweed, cashmere and merino, as well as worsted.


Worsted wool is a dense textile with a high degree of durability. The natural fiber of wool must be spun. But not worsted. Instead, the wool is first combed through a carding process in order to remove any short or brittle fibers. The longer fibre strands are left to spin, resulting in a smooth texture. There are many ways to weave worsted, including flannel and tweed as well as gabardine, tweed and fresco.


Cashmere can be used alone or in a combination. However, it can add a luxurious touch to a suit. Cashmere is not suitable for work depending on your preference. For pleasure? Always.

Tip: Wool suits can be worn all year round. For slimmer men or those who prefer a more luxurious look (especially for formal occasions), wool is the best choice.


The second most widely used fabric for suits is cotton, which is made from plant fibres. The suit can look sloppy if it is not able to move well and breathe well. However, cotton suits tend to wrinkle easily. While they are soft and comfortable, they lack luxury when it comes to luxury.

Tip: Wear cotton in the spring, summer, and fall. It suits all body types, and is suitable for those who prefer a semi-formal appearance to outdoor events. Workwear should be made of heavy cotton or a wool/cotton blend. This will help the fabric maintain its shape.


Linen suits are extremely lightweight and can withstand high temperatures. Linen wrinkles quickly and stains easily so it needs to be cleaned regularly.

Tip: Summer is the best time to wear linen. This is a casual option to wool or cotton. For larger bodies, suits can be worn to semi-formal events, but not to the office.


Polyester is synthetic and not natural wool. It is therefore of lower quality. In order to reduce costs, polyester is often blended with other fibres, such as wool. Polyester suit fabrics are more wrinkle-prone than those made from wool, but less so than linen. They also have a bad reputation for not being breathable. The suit will look less expensive because polyester has a higher fabric shine than cotton and wool.

Tip: Avoid extreme temperatures by only wearing polyester in spring and fall. Blends with wool will increase the quality and wearability of polyester for formal events. For office wear and casual events, suits most body types.


Silk is an animal protein that comes from insects and is commonly used by moths for making cocoons. Silk is more comfortable than polyester and can be expensive to make. Silk is breathable and acts as a temperature regulator. It helps the body retain heat in cold conditions while letting it go in warmer weather.

Tips: Silk can also be worn in winter, spring, summer, fall, and winter. Silk suits most body types, and it is ideal for luxury events.


Velvet is a tightly woven fabric made of silk, nylon and cotton. Velvet is a suiting fabric that is mostly used for the smoking jacket. Velvet is soft and breathable. It is also less aerated due to its blend with nylon.

Tips: Velvet can be worn year round as a jacket for dinner parties. It’s best to keep it far from the office.

Cloth weight

Even if your knowledge of the Gospel of Suit fabrics is a thing of the past, thread count and cloth weight are still a problem. Thomas Pink, Britain’s most renowned suit expert, has provided the following information:

  1. 7oz – 9oz: Lightweight. This is the ideal weight for summer.
  2. 9.5oz – 11oz: Light to mid weight. Ideal for moving from spring into summer or late summer into autumn. Because we all love awkward transitions.
  3. 11oz – 12oz: Mid weight. This is the ideal fabric weight to use for everyday wear. This is the best choice for your first suit purchase.
  4. 12oz – 13oz: Heavier mid weight. It’s a good choice for everyday wear, but it can get a bit hot in the summer heat.
  5. 14oz – 19oz: Heavy. It’s great for cold winter days. It’s easy to get warmth.
Last words

It is worth it to invest in the right suit. It is important to identify the season in which you will wear it, what body type you have, and what level of comfort you desire. You won’t regret it.
