Laimbock Gala Gloves White
Gloves came in good conditions, delivered on time. I received emails tracking the progress of the delivery. The material looks high quality, the only thing I dislike a bit is the fact that this pair of gloves fit well in my hands and fingers, however get loosen on the wrists, I would rather see them a bit tighter on the wrists. Another suggestion I have is on packaging. It will be great if suitable reduces the amount of plastic on package. I had one external package which was nice and the gloves were inside another plastic bag. I get the extra care intended here, but if we can find ways to be more sustainable, it is always a win. All in all, thank you so much for the delivery and I am satisfied with it.
  Thank you for being satisfied with your delivery.. The remark concerns the packaging we include in the process. We give high priority to this.   ^Quinty van Suitable

Laimbock Gala Gloves White
White gloves you will only need them, everywhere they call the party gloves for 2 euros, I want something chic. Laimbock, good brand. Still, a small hole on the stitching in both gloves. Not an insurmountable shame. Service is excellent by the way.

Bow Tie Pique White
Great article, some minor points of criticism, the converted front should be stuck so that it remains neat. Have now done this myself with a few loose stitches. Buttonholes are on the large side but this can also be solved with a little diligence.

Great article, but it must be better checked in advance whether all buttons are properly secured. After 2 days of wearing the suit already have to sew 3 buttons again. I have lost 1 and would like to receive spare buttons.

It is a nice dress suit for an attractive price. As an adult, you may have slightly higher demands on the material used, especially the skirt white. But for students it is an exceptionally beautiful suit!

Lost 3 buttons after wearing it once. Have 3 new buttons put on and the other buttons extra tight.
  Hi Nick. How annoying to hear that the buttons did not stay in place! If you have had to incur costs for the repair, we would like to receive a receipt via customerservice@suitable.nl, then we will look for a suitable solution for you!   ^Quinty van Suitable

Dress suits

Dress suits, in other words White Tie, consists of a jacket with two long, pointed back panels. A suit perfect for your formal occasions. A dress suit consists of the following elements: a white dress shirt, a white piqué waistcoat and a white bow. All available in white tie packages. Buying a dress suit is quick and simple at Suitable, please contact us for further assistance.

Dress suit wearers

One of the most famous wearers of the dress suit was Fred Astaire. In his films, he wore dress suits in numerous dancing scenes. He looked elegant for sure, not only because of his own appearance but also because of the excellent fit of the suit. Purchasing a dress suit is an investment, which is only essential for men who visit formal occasions regularly, due to their profession. For instance, politicians, ambassadors and conductors, as well as students.

Purchasing a dress suit

A dress suit is a formal and ceremonial outfit to wear to proms or official occasions, generally at night and indoors. The dress code for which it is intended is ‘white tie’ or ‘cravate blanche’, when women are supposed to wear floor-length dresses.

The dress suit’s black jacket with glossy lapels reaches on the front just below the waist, is not worn closed, and shows the deep u-shaped waistcoat underneath. This waistcoat should be covered by the black coat tails, but today it is more and more customary to let it protrude about a centimetre.

When the dress suit is worn at daytime, which is very uncommon, the white waistcoat should be replaced by a black one. The long back panels should have a deep split and should reach the hollow of the knee. Sitting down, you place the panels backwards on your left and right side.

The black trousers are usually trimmed with single or double piping along the seam line. The white shirt is generally starched and, as well as the waistcoat, embellished with decorative buttons.

A watch is always omitted when wearing a dress suit. Patent leather shoes are preferred, as well as thin black stockings.

When should you wear a tailcoat suit?

A tailcoat suit is a formal suit perfect for white tie events and formal evening events such as weddings, balls, operas, or galas. A tailcoat is also referred to as a suit with tails or a tailcoat tuxedo. Whenever an invitation says “white tie” is required, you should wear a tailcoat. The formal attire consists of a black peak-lapel coat with tails, a white waistcoat, and formal trousers.

Why do coats have tails?

The original tailcoat was a long formal coat. Initially, to make horse riding more convenient, the front of these coats became shorter over time, leaving only the back. The back of the coat is divided by a center vent, creating two “tails”. Thus, the coats started being referred to as tailcoats and are still worn in today’s fashion. The upside of this short front and long back is that it accentuates the wearer’s virtues by elevating the waistline. This makes the torso seem broader, and the legs look longer.

How long should a tailcoat be?

The tails should be knee-length, hanging just below the fold of the knee. The coat must fit the torso snugly, even though it you cannot close the jacket. The two rows of front buttons are thus purely decorative. The trousers should sit high, and the legs should be just long enough to break once above the shoes. The coat should make an S-shape, tailored at the waist and wide at the bottom in profile. This stops the suit from looking like a shapeless box. Luckily, Suitable provides a wide range of sizes to accomplish a perfect fit. As such, the unique cut of a tailcoat and classic black color gives you a uniquely elegant look.

What to wear with a tailcoat

As the “white-tie” suggests, the tailcoat is always worn with a white bow tie. The shirt of choice is a white wingtip collar, on top of which a white (single-breasted) vest is worn. The accompanying black trousers traditionally had a double stripe on the side. Today, the single-striped trousers – also worn with a dinner jacket as a tuxedo - are seen more often. The appropriate footwear is a black lacquer lace-up shoe. If you want to go all the way, you can complete the look with white cotton gloves.

When should you wear a morning suit?

When worn during the day, this formal suit is known as morning dress or formal day dress. Just as with the evening tailcoat suit, the full morning suit consists of a coat, waistcoat, and formal trousers. It is used in formal daily events and is the most elegant ceremony garment. The entire morning suit is the appropriate attire for day weddings, royal or governmental audiences, and social season events such as horse races.

What to wear with a morning suit

When compared to the tailcoat tuxedo, the morning dress offers more room for creativity. For example, it can also be paired with a double-breasted waistcoat or worn with a colored necktie instead of a white bowtie. When you’re feeling adventurous, you could even pair it with a colored pocket square. A white shirt is still recommended, though, preferably with a spread or cutaway collar and French cuffs. Instead of the standard black trousers, grey, striped or houndstooth patterns are also popular options.

Where can I find cheap tailcoats/morning suits?

Suitable offers tailcoats/morning suits ranging from a premium wool option to a more affordable Budapest model of Polyester-Viscose material. There is also a mid-range wool blend option. Advised is to order a tailcoat together with a classic white wingtip collar shirt, white vest, white bowtie, black lacquer shoes and to finish it off, white or black gala gloves. Naturally, we also provide a wide variety of cufflinks, ties, and pocket squares to complete your full morning suit.
