The Suit: Series I

-by Vikram Nanjappa for Stylefluid Trendz

In my previous article on suits (Read here) I touched upon the various methods that are employed in their manufacturing process and also on what to look for when buying a suit. In this series of articles I focus a little more on the details of a good suit.

On second thoughts one can consider my previous article as the first in this series!
