Fitting a suit jacket
If you’re fitting a suit jacket for the first time, follow these simple steps:
1. Find the center of the chest and mark it with a pin or tailor’s chalk.
2. Match up the shoulder seams and make sure they lay flat against each other.
3. Align the bottom rung of the collar with one of the vertical edges of the pocket and mark it with a pencil.
4. Fold each side of the jacket in toward your marked line, making sure to crease evenly and seal the folds by pressing them down with your fingers.
5. Take care not to distort or stretch any fabric folds during this process – adjust as necessary until they’re satisfied (you’ll probably need to tug on some corners). Finally, press all folds again for extra stiffness (a hot iron will also work).
6. Put your suit jacket on and check that everything lays correctly – if not, adjust as needed!
The four main types of jackets
There are four main types of jackets: a blazer, a peacoat, an overcoat, and a raincoat.
To fold a suit jacket, follow these steps:
1. Lay the jacket flat on your lap.
2. Open the arms and spread the pockets open.
3. Fold each arm in toward the body, then overlap the left and right arms so that they meet in the center of the chest.
4. Roll up one side of the fabric to cover the arm and hand-stitch it in place using needle and thread (or use a zigzag stitch). Repeat on the other side.
The three main types of collars
There are three main types of collars: French, buckle and chain. French collars are the most common type and are made from a metal band that goes around your neck and is fastened with a large, round, metal buckle. Buckle collars use two small metal loops called buckles to hold the collar in place. Chain collars are made from a long strip of metal that is connected at one end to a ring on the collar, and at the other end is a small link that hangs down.
Wearing a suit jacket
If you’re like most men, you probably don’t fold your suit jacket the way it’s supposed to be folded. Here’s how to do it properly:
1. Take the suit jacket and fold it in half from the collar to the hem.
2. Next, fold each of the arms in toward the body until they form a 90-degree angle with the folded jacket.
3. Finally, tuck each arm into the shoulder of the jacket and press down so that it fits snugly against your body.

2. Take the left cuff of the jacket and fold it in towards the inside of the armhole. Make sure to guide the crease so it’s parallel to the other cuff.
