how to find out your suit size

Our good friend Sam Ikiima from Chicago, Illinois told us that he loves the suits that we sell on SuitUpp but didn’t know what suit size to buy: “Guys, How do I know what suit size will be right for me since a suit size might be a bit different from vendor to vendor?”

Great question Sam! Well, first and foremost, the easiest way to find out your suit size is to go to a big department store and see which size fits you best in general. Let’s say that your suit size, based on your findings, is a 40 Regular. Once you know this, you can buy a 40 Regular from SuitUpp. Afterwards, you can take the suit to a tailor and generally have it custom fit for you… here are some general notes:

  • A jacket that is too big at the waist can be easily taken in by a tailor
  • If your slacks are 1-2″ too big or small a tailor can easily taken them in or out. If the slacks are over 2″ too big, a tailor can re-cut them to fit (typically more expensive).
  • Typically and unless otherwise noted our pant bottoms come unfinished and unhemmed. It is best to let a professional tailor alter the length for you.

Do this and you can buy the right suit from SuitUpp. In the event that for some reason your tailor says that the suit can’t be custom made to your fit, we have a great return policy.

Now, if you don’t want to take a trip to your local department store, what you can do is just read our article on how to find out your suit size.

Hope this helps!
