Mastering the Art of Wearing a Suit – A Guide for Graduate Students


Graduating from university marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life, often involving job interviews, internships, and networking events. Wearing a well-fitted suit can significantly boost your confidence and help you make a lasting impression. At Sindhur Tailors, we understand the importance of looking and feeling your best, which is why we offer custom-made TR suits in both light twill and heavy twill fabrics, paired with high-quality shirts, all at affordable prices. This guide will help you master the art of wearing a suit, covering everything from fit to accessories.

Why a Suit Matters

A suit is more than just a piece of clothing; it's a statement of professionalism, confidence, and attention to detail. A well-fitted suit can enhance your appearance, boost your self-esteem, and create a positive first impression. Here’s how to ensure you look your best in a suit:

Choosing the Right Suit

1. Fabric and Style:

  • TR Fabric: Our TR (Terylene Rayon) suits offer the perfect blend of durability, comfort, and elegance. The light twill fabric is ideal for warmer climates or indoor events, while the heavy twill provides extra warmth and a structured look for cooler weather.

  • Colors: Stick to classic colors like navy, charcoal gray, and black for versatility. These colors are appropriate for most professional settings and can be easily paired with different shirts and accessories.

2. Fit:

  • Custom Tailored: A custom-made suit ensures a perfect fit, which is crucial for looking polished. At Sindhur Tailors, we tailor our suits to your exact measurements, ensuring they fit you like a glove.

  • Key Areas: Ensure the shoulders fit snugly without any overhang, the sleeves end at the wrist bone, and the trousers break slightly at the top of your shoes. The suit jacket should button comfortably without pulling or bunching.

The Essential Components

1. Shirts:

  • Fabric: Opt for high-quality cotton shirts for breathability and comfort. Our custom-made shirts are crafted from the finest materials, ensuring durability and a luxurious feel.

  • Colors: Stick to classic colors like white and light blue, which pair well with any suit. For a touch of personality, you can also consider subtle patterns like stripes or checks.

2. Ties:

  • Length and Width: The tie should reach your belt buckle and be proportional to your body type. Slim ties work well for a modern look, while wider ties are more traditional.

  • Colors and Patterns: Solid colors, stripes, or small patterns are safe choices for interviews and formal events. Ensure the tie complements your shirt and suit without clashing.

3. Socks:

  • Color Coordination: Match your socks to your trousers for a cohesive look. Avoid white socks, as they are too casual for a suit.

  • Length: Opt for mid-calf or over-the-calf socks to avoid any skin showing when you sit down.

4. Shoes:

  • Style: Classic styles like oxfords or brogues are ideal for professional settings. Choose black or brown leather shoes that complement your suit.

  • Care: Ensure your shoes are polished and in good condition. Scuffed or worn-out shoes can detract from an otherwise polished appearance.

Accessorizing Your Suit

1. Pocket Squares:

  • Simple Elegance: A white pocket square folded neatly is a classic choice. For a bit of flair, you can choose a color that complements your tie or shirt.

  • Folds: The presidential fold (straight edge) is formal and clean, while the puff fold is more relaxed and stylish.

2. Belts:

  • Matching Leather: Your belt should match the color and finish of your shoes. A simple, well-made leather belt with a classic buckle is ideal.

3. Watches:

  • Classic Styles: A sleek, minimal watch with a leather strap or metal bracelet adds a touch of sophistication without being too flashy.
