How to Pick the Perfect Business Suits in Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide or Hobart

Whether you are a lawyer looking for new court wardrobe or an entrepreneur seeking to make a good first impression on a potential investor or business partner, a great suit is a must. Nowadays, the concept of the classic business suit has faded somewhat—even in business hubs such as Melbourne. With more people working from home and telecommuting or launching their own businesses, the idea of what is acceptable or even preferred business dress has changed.

Still, there is nothing like a perfectly fitted suit to make you look professional and valuable. With that fact in mind, here are five tips to help you choose the perfect business suit—whether you are shopping in Adelaide, Hobart, Canberra or Melbourne.

The Top Five Tips for Choosing the Right Business Suit in Adelaide or Melbourne

  • Have a professional do the measurements: Sure, you can look up online how to measure yourself for a suit (or really, how to have a friend or family member measure you). However, you're going to get much better results if you go into a store or fitting station and have an expert do the measurements for you. After all, the last thing you want is a suit that doesn't fit you like it should.
  • Go for slim: Speaking of fit, tell whoever measures you that you want a slim fit suit. These days, bespoke suits are all the rage and roomier or baggier suits are out of style. On the same note, if you have baggier suits from years ago, it might be time to replace them. A perfectly fitting suit sends a message of professionalism and charisma while a baggy suit sends a message of sloppiness. In business, you obviously want to be sending the former message, so go for the slim fit option.
  • Mind the colour: While every man probably has a different image in his head when he thinks of the perfect suit, the truth is that suits come in a wide range of different colours and designs. Different suit colours are suited (pun intended!) for different types of events and scenarios. For instance, tan linen suits might be great for a summer family gathering while black suits or tuxes are ideal for a dinner party or other more formal occasions. For business, though, navy blue and dark grey should be your go-to colours. Both go well with different colours of shirts, ties and shoes, and will be more flexible within your day-to-day wardrobe.
  • Choose inoffensive shirts and ties: While not as important as the suit itself—and easier to replace—shirts and ties can still make or break your outfit. Choose neutral colours for the shirts (white and light blue are the top options), and opt for a solid colour (or a standard pattern) in a hue that's easy on the eyes. It's acceptable for your tie to be a bit of a colour accent for your outfit, but avoid extremely bright or fluorescent colours for best effect.
