American Suit Style

Origin

The American suit becomes popular in the early 19th century that is also recognized as sack suit made popular later in the 1920’s by ivy leaguers. “The sack” actually comes from the French “sacque,” which means “a particular construction technique for coats and jackets”. In the 1920s, the target group covered a wide target group made of the dominant and wealthy business class. Companies, like Brooks Brothers, who are considered among the pioneers of the American suit, had to start reinventing the suit to make it suitable for mass production. And we see these elements loud and clear just by having a quick attentive look at the American suit.

Tailoring Style

The sack suit typically has natural shoulders without shoulders pads. Its distinct characteristics are a single vent at the back, higher arm whole which gives the sack suit its boxy appearance, straight lines, flap pockets, no darts and no padded shoulders giving you softer silhouette. Also, these suits were very baggy. The jacket of the suit is usually single breasted with two or three buttons. It also comes with almost no padding with a straight silhouette. The sleeves wear with a loose fit and feature three buttons only, and the canvas features no darts that gives it a baggier look. The pants are a full cut, with no pleats which save a significant amount of fabric in the large scale production. If you want to get the perfect American style, then you should keep in mind that it avoids tight fitting of your body and give preference to the loose fit. In its original form, this suit is the least stylish. With time, American suits became more cut to the shape of the body, included shoulder padding and became more fashionable.

Occasion to Wear

American outfit is mainly known for its formal style, although it will surely make you look classic whenever you attire it any occasion or it any important business activities. It is recommendable for those who wear suits quite rarely. If you're interviewing for a prestigious corporate law firm, or for a position in the financial sector, there's no question that you should dress conservatively i.e. dark suits and tasteful tie and shirt combinations. Over-the-top patterns are frowned upon, but an American suit is both classy and sophisticated. If you have a large build body, then you should go for American suits as they are slack so it will provide you flexibility and comfy feelings while donning it.  Most of the details on American shirts have a functional history: holding things in place, adding durability, or flexibility. If you are searching for any of those functions, then go for American cut pieces rather than any other. Maintain an understated look with American cut styles, particularly in classic colors to contrast with your perfect tailoring in a subtle, but effective way.

Italian suit Style

Italians are innovators. From their cuts to their fabrics they continue to push the envelope and reinvent the wheel. Italy has enjoyed a landslide victory in high consumer places such as the USA.. Just like the rise of the British style, the Italian was also a slow and steady road to worldwide success and appreciation. It was only in 1952 that idea grew vastly after the first fashion show held at Palazzo Pitti in Florence. Many have played a significant role in the design of Italian suit; some remarkable mentions are Ermenegildo Zegna, Nazareno Fonticoli (founder of Brioni) and Armani. The Italian suit evolved in many styles over the years. Nowadays, we identify three major styles in Italy, namely Romano, Napoletano and Milanese.  But going into the details of these three would be too big of a diversion, and the topic is so detailed that would be itself another article. Those details, those features are still you would see now in a modern Italian suit.

It is short and fits tight and close to the body, the shoulders are lightly padded, and the overall padding is significantly reduced, while lapel notches and buttons are positioned higher than in British and American jackets. The jacket comes single-breasted, and also features high gorge lines, flapless pockets, and large buttons. The front of the jacket shows a pronounced V-shape, tight at the waist. The V-shape is actually considered very attractive in a man. Pants have tapered waist and hips are snug to the body. It ends with one break, in the most traditional design. Nowadays, no-break type of pants is also common in the Italian style. Today you will rarely see original American style. Baggy look is not stylish while British and Italian style is more common.
