Suits

When you buy a suit, you hope that it will see enough time out of your closet to justify the cost. And one of the reasons why guys don't wear their suits more often is that the fit isn't quite right. Most suits are sold as a unit but really, if you're not built like a male model, what are the chances that both the jacket and the pants will fit you perfectly? Thankfully, both designer labels and more mass brands these days are splitting up their suits and selling them as separates. Which is great for many reasons, but none more important than the ability to nail the perfect fit. Plus, if you wear suits on the regular, you can buy two pairs of pants since they wear out much quicker than the jackets. And since these have been designed to be worn separately, they've got a slightly relaxed vibe, whether you're splitting up the jacket and pants or simply sporting them together with a T-shirt and some sneakers—an ideal look for warmer weather.
