Journey of a Jacket and its Fit

No industry is more fickle than fashion. Apparel manufacturers spend millions every year trying to anticipate the next big craze, which is ironic when you consider that our fundamental demands of clothing have changed little over the course of four hundred millennia. Whether we're wearing a grass skirt or $500 blue jeans, we like a bit of protection from the elements, a feeling of warmth and security, and to make an impression" in words of Patrick Tucker as stated in Smart Fashion. Clothes that we wear reflect our personalities, our character and help to make our image.

The three piece suit today is an accepted standard formal menswear, generally almost all business men wear suits to work every day.

The traditional three piece suit for men includes a trouser, paired with a jacket/ coat and a shirt. Jacket is a very important piece of garment as it makes the first impression regarding the person wearing it and how they present themselves. For centuries design details and workmanship of men's tailoring have been borrowed by women's-wear. Contemporary designers are employing tailoring techniques which are increasingly using latest hi-technology that eliminates the need of hand stitching which was once and essential element of a well made Savile Row jacket.
