Your very first suit should ideally be navy blue or grey, and made from a thin woollen fabric. With this versatile cornerstone of men's style hanging in your wardrobe, you can then expand your collection with suits in flannel, tweed, and linen. Just as with blazers, many men wish they had more opportunities to wear a suit. But, as with so many things in life, it's up to you to create that opportunity. If you want to wear a suit more often, then you should just go ahead and wear it.
With a little basic knowledge of suits, you will soon come to fully appreciate their versatility. The more you wear a suit, the more comfortable you will feel, and being comfortable is the key to being truly elegant. Smaller tailoring adjustments such as shortening of the sleeves will greatly improve the fit of your suit, making your more inclined to wear it. By pairing it with casual and formal shirts, as well as different types of footwear, you can easily alter the look of your suit.
