How to Measure for Your Suit

Have you heard the news? All of our Suits are being sold as separates!

You might ask, why is this such a big deal? Well, it means that you can now purchase each piece of a suit individually-sized to ensure the best fit for you. We know that every body is different, and we want to make it easy for you to find your perfect fit in Paul Fredrick, from head to toe.

 

Here’s how to determine which size you need in:

Suit Jackets:

For suit jacket sizing, you’ll have to measure your chest size with measuring tape. (Tip: It can be difficult to do this yourself, so ask a friend to help.) Measure… Continue>>

How to Care for and Store Your Pants and Shorts

Pants

Thank you for choosing Paul Fredrick! We know you’re going to love your new purchase.

Always read the care and content label to determine how to care for your garment. This is especially important because your garment may have different care instructions than those detailed here.

In order to get the longest life from your Paul Fredrick garment, we recommend following these instructions, depending on the relevant material.

Laundering Your Pants

Wool/Wool-Blend: If your pants are made from wool or a wool-blend, they are dry clean only. Hang wool pants on a proper hanger in a well ventilated closet.

Spring 2013 Fashion Trends for Men

It’s a shame that some men are afraid of color. We certainly aren’t. And while we embrace every shade on the spectrum throughout the year, we admit to having a special soft spot for spring. Must be the timing: After being cooped-up all winter, the first warm days of the year bring a sense of joy and freedom worth celebrating with colorful clothing.

Let’s start by talking shirts and ties. Now there’s nothing wrong with pairing a basic blue or white dress shirt and pairing it with bright tie in a random color (hey, every newscaster does it). But who wants to be predictable? Try reversing the formula… Continue>>

Grey-No Other Color Works Harder

The book and film “The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit” associates the color grey with mindless corporate conformity. But this is an unfair characterization, for if grey is popular to the point of ubiquity, it’s because no other color works harder for a man.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re big fans of navy, menswear’s other daily workhorse, as well, but navy often works better as an accent color, and it’s often a bit flashier. A grey suit would be the more subdued approach for an important job interview, and would be more apropos than navy for a funeral.

Caring for your Suits, Sport Coats and Blazers

There’s an old song lyric that goes “You couldn’t be keener/You look so fresh from the cleaner.”

In fact, looking fresh from the dry cleaner is not a good thing, since it probably means your jacket looks stiff, the lapel roll has been pressed flat, and you smell like chemicals.

Eco types often point out how environmentally unfriendly dry cleaning is, and we’re here to say it’s not exactly gentle on your favorite suits, blazers and sport coats either. The truth is if you want to clothing to last, you should adopt a home maintenance regimen and dry clean your clothing as… Continue>>

All About Trousers

Getting the right fit is always important.  Fortunately, trousers aren’t as complicated as jackets where you have to worry about making sure the sleeves fall straight from the shoulders.  Or, making sure the collar rests snugly against the back of the neck.  Still, we like to point out four common misconceptions when it comes to being the one who “wears the pants in the family.”

#1Flat front pants are only for the young and skinny.

This simply isn’t true. If you don’t have a 32-inch waist, baggy pleated pants can often make you look even heavier. Flat versus… Continue>>
